With some heavy hitting PC games coming out by (hopefully) the end of the year, like Diablo III and Star Wars: The Old Republic, it is vital that you have a computer that will be capable of running these games at a decent graphics setting with no lag, to say the least. I don’t think my custom-built gaming PC will have any trouble with either, but others may not be so lucky. In addition to that, there are also those of you out there that prefer to take your gaming on the road, investing in a nice gaming laptop. If that sounds like you, then Samsung may have just what you are looking for, the Series 7 Gamer.
This gaming laptop is designed with hardcore gamers in mind, not those of you who hear PC gaming and think of Farmville… seriously, you people disgust me. Anyway, this laptop is definitely full of hardcore gaming power. Under the pleasing outer case you will find a new Intel Second Generation Core i7 quad core chip with a minimum 8GB of RAM, 16GB if you want to max it out, and so much more.
In addition to the processor, the Series 7 Gamer also comes with the AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB GDDR5 graphics card, full 1080p HD graphics and even 3D playback, all of which you get to enjoy by looking at an impressive 17.3″ 1920 x 1080 resolution screen.
But wait! There’s more! In addition to all that (as if you needed any more reason), you get 3D surround sound compatibility with Dolby Home Theater as well as multiple optimization modes for incredible versatility. The first mode is, of course, Gaming Mode, which offers CPU performance at its peak, turbo cooling system operated to 100% fan speed and touch pad deactivation.
Then there is Balanced Mode. Balanced Mode is like the average, everyday settings on your typical laptop. Library Mode is also available for quieter settings like, well, a library or classroom, and Green Mode allows for the maximum in battery performance.
Everything about this laptop is optimized for gaming goodness, even the keyboard. U-shaped key caps, a d2.7mm keystroke and fully separated arrow keys for precise control help to make your gaming experience just about perfect. The keyboard also features key backlighting with keys glowing white in dark situations or blue when in Gaming Mode. Main gaming keys are highlighted in red and the Windows key is fully disabled.
The sad thing is that the Series 7 Gamer is currently only available in the United Kingdom for £1,499, or roughly $2,452 USD.
