Samsung announces the Series 7 Chronos and Ultra Windows 8 touchscreen notebooks

Next week is CES 2013, and for the most part news about the show has been quiet. Finally today we’re hearing about some more products that will be shown off at the show. Samsung has annuonced two new Windows 8 laptops: the Chronos and Ultra. Both are new aditions to the Series 7 line.

The Chronos (shown above) is the beast of the litter. It has a 15.6″ display and weighs 5.8 pounds. With that bulk comes a 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon graphics chips, up to 1TB of storage, and up to 16GB of RAM.

The Ultra is much more compact. It has a 13.3″ display and weighs only 3.2 pounds. It is powered by either a Core i5 or i7 processor, and has 256GB of storage. Both the Chronos and Ultra will come with touchscreen options. Pricing and launch details have not yet been shared. We expect to get some hands-on time with these devices at CES.
