LAS VEGAS -- January 2, 2013

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital
convergence technologies, today announced two additions to its high
performance Series 7 PC lineup: the enhanced Series 7 Chronos, which delivers
professional performance in a thin and light form factor, and the Series 7
Ultra, which takes Ultrabooks to the next level with enriched computing power,
graphics and touch capability. The new Samsung Series 7 intuitive devices
incorporate PCs into consumers’ lives by enabling mobility and helping to keep
them connected.

“2012 was a definitive year for Samsung’s PC business – we expanded our
lineup, taking advantage of the new form factors and consumer demand. This led
to significant growth in the industry,” said David Song, Senior Vice President
of IT & Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics. “In 2013, we will
continue to focus on innovation delivering products that fit into customer
lifestyles while maintaining Samsung’s high-end design and performance
standards. The new Series 7 Chronos and Ultra products are just two examples
of what you can expect to see from us throughout the year.”

New Series 7 Chronos – Professional, Powerful Performer

Delivering professional performance in a thinner and lighter form factor, the
new Series 7 Chronos provides enhanced processing power for professional users
and a new software solution RAMaccelerator**** that provides up to a 150
percent increase in speed for browsing and running apps by taking advantage of
the existing memory. Ten-finger multi-touch capabilities enhance the overall
experience, allowing the user to interact directly with the screen, as well as
the touchpad and keyboard. With a full aluminum body, the new Series 7 Chronos
follows the design DNA of its predecessor while packing a powerful Intel®
quad-core processor with up to 16GB* of memory, up to 1TB*** of storage and
dedicated 2GB external graphics into a slim chassis that measures just 20.9mm
(0.82 inches).

The Series 7 Chronos enables creation of heavy content for professional use
with increased efficiency and productivity, anywhere and anytime. Catering to
the needs of professionals, the new Series 7 Chronos features a high
resolution, Full HD display (1920x1080), with 300nit brightness, as well as
rich sound with JBL® optimized speakers, enhanced graphics to run hardcore
tasks, and an extended battery life of 11 hours**. The laptop wakes up in as
little as two seconds and boots in under twelve seconds, making it ready at a
moment’s notice to access virtually anything the user needs for serious work.

Series 7 Ultra – A New Ultrabook Experience

As the first Ultra in the Series 7 family, the Series 7 Ultra embodies
superior mobility and performance in an ultra-slim and light, full aluminum
body. Designed as the ultimate Ultrabook for multimedia, the Series 7 Ultra
offers crisp visuals as well as powerful sound features. Enjoy videos and
images on a Full HD display (1920x1080) featuring 350nit brightness, while JBL
optimized speakers and AMD® graphics complete the experience. The laptop’s
display is brighter and wider than previous models and features a 178-degree
viewing angle, making it great for sharing multimedia with friends and family,
or work content with colleagues.

Up to eight hours of battery life** keeps users connected all day, while the
latest Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processors and up to 256GB SSD*** of storage
provide the computing power required by even the most demanding users. The
laptop’s ten-finger intuitive touch capabilities and six second boot-up time
maximize on-the-go productivity. The device will also be available with 4G LTE
connectivity, further enhancing accessibility from anywhere (touch model
based). Connecting to other devices is almost never an issue with three USB
ports, as well as a LAN port and a slim security slot to help ensure the
device is securely tethered when necessary.
