Today it's been announced by Samsung Electronics America that the Samsung Series 7 All-In-One PC does exist and will be coming out to the consumer market soon. This desktop computer will combine a minimalistic design profile at 16mm thin on a 23-inch display with advanced technology for work and play. You'll find an Intel Core i3 or Intel Core i5 processor inside with Windows 7 Home Premium backing you up until you get a taste of Windows 8 in the very near future - working great with this full-touch display. Last time we spoke of Series 7, it was the Central Station and the slate as well as the Chronos notebooks and their lovely displays, now we get to see all those magical components re-arranged into a cool all-in-one today!

Samsung Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC Hands-on [Video]

Samsung Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC Hands-on [Video]

A lovely set of laptops is what Samsung is presenting next here at this year's Pepcom Holiday Spectacular 2011, the Samsung Notebook Series 7 CHRONOS. This laptop comes in two sizes, one of them a 14-inch profile, the other a 15-inch profile, both of them with bigger displays than you've ever seen before in such a small set of chassis. What we get to see here isn't so much about the insides - things like the Battery Life Plus tech which keeps 80% of the cell's original capacity in a normal life cycle (this providing up to 15,000 charging cycles), instead our presenter from Samsung shows off the uniqueness in the display technology and the coolness of the chassis - well done since we've already also got an IFA 2011 look of one of the two of these notebooks in some nice photo detail as well.

There is a tablet out there right now, ladies and gentlemen, that has many faces, the most recent of which was the Windows 8 developer version of the new Microsoft platform. We've seen this tablet back at IFA 2011, then we saw it again when we got the opportunity to check out the Windows 8 version of it just this week at Microsoft BUILD developers conference. Now what we're getting to see at the Pepcom Holiday Spectacular 2011 in NYC is this slate, once again using Windows 7, working flawlessly with the Samsung Central Station, a wireless display hub made to allow you the ability to mirror any device on its lovely large 27-inch screen

ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro Hands-on [Video] – Launch Time!

ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro Hands-on [Video] – Launch Time!

What you're about to see is a video that actually contains a bit of hands-on time with three tablets, the ViewSonic ViewPad being the only one of the bunch we'd not yet gotten to see in-person before. The initial international launch of the tablet trio ViewSonic ViewPad 7X, 10pro, and 7E took place on the first of September, and this look at the set comes right beside the display-intensive company's announcement of a release here in the USA. This isn't the first time we've come across the 10pro for certain, the idea that a Windows 7 tablet would be able to also run Android being a rather enticing value proposition for developers. Have a look at what it's all about and see if it's the tablet for your dual-OS future.

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14-inch Mobile Monitor Hands-on [Video]

This week at Pepcom's Holiday Spectacular 2011 in New York City, we were shown an odd new device by Lenovo. This device was (and is) the ThinkVision LT1421 14-inch Mobile Monitor. It's a bland name, but I assure you, the concept is certainly there. This monitor was announced a few weeks ago in sort of a silent matter, but here we've got it out in the open and ready to be used by our hands and our eyes, and all of it courtesy of Lenovo Brand Ambassador Stephen Miller, a fellow you'll likely see in several Lenovo videos at conventions and presentations galore. He knows his Lenovo, and he was glad to show off this neat new device for us in a video here in this post.

Logitech has taken a page from Apple by offering its own version of the Magic Trackpad, but designed for Windows PCs. The device is simply called the Logitech Wireless Touchpad and provides a 5-inch multi-touch surface free of any physical buttons. However, its looks are certainly a lot less elegant than its Mac counterpart.

Windows 8, Microsoft’s Great Touch-based Hope

Windows 8, Microsoft’s Great Touch-based Hope

This week we've been introduced by Microsoft to their next hero operating system Windows 8. This OS is optimized to work on every machine starting at the smallness of a tablet form factor reaching up servers hosting processors galore. Its versatile, just as versatile as any previous version of Windows has been and more, it's made to work with both touch-based gestures and/or keyboard and mouse-based actions. Applications here in Windows 8 are optimized for teamwork between themselves, connections, syncing, and the ability of Windows 8 software to run any app from Windows 7 makes this a value proposition that may well be right up the alleys of a vast population in both the USA and abroad.
