File-It-Under: Curved systems By: D.F.Skinner
Its no secret that Samsung are known for putting out some of the finest mobile devices around,its basically their biggest money maker right now. The aforementioned Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is by far in my opinion one of the best 5-inch mobile devices on the market.
Those who aren’t familiar with the companies background,Samsung are also known for manufacturing computers and creating some of the finest storage devices around.In the past couple of years though,Samsung have been bit quiet in the computer front,not releasing anything that’ll blow you away. This past Tuesday though,Samsung introduces not another new mobile device,but a new computer,the Samsung ATIV One 7 all-in-one desktop computer.
The all-in-one desktop has a distinct design that stands out from the rest on the market, a 27-inch curve display. The display itself will wrap its 1920 x 1080 display around the users field of vision.
On the hardware front, the AIO (all-in-one) desktop will carry an Intel Core i5 processor ( no mention of clock speed), 8GB of RAM and a 1TB of hard drive. The overall AIO will be supported by an built-in adjustable stand and additional keyboard and mouse. It also have two built-in 10-Watt Dolby speakers for your sound output.
The current model in the images in this post surprisingly will not feature touch capability. It will have the usual standard HDMI,USB 3.0,USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The Samsung ATIVE One Curve AIO will have a pending price of about $1299 and will hit stores first quarter 2015.Curious to see whether or not computer manufacturers will follow suit and go with curve design on its display since we are seeing a plethora of curve TV’s and desktop monitors on the market.
