At the largest tech festival, enthusiasts are having the time of their life. Like a kid lost in a Candy store. There are more new launches than we can absorb, at the CES 2017. Samsung has gone a bit more excited about laptops this year and launched 4 new laptops at CES 17. There is Chromebook Plus, Chromebook Pro, Samsung Series 9 and a gaming laptop named as Odyssey.
The Samsung Odyssey is more of a mix of Razer and Lenovo Gaming laptops as far as the design goes. There are two models with 15 inch screen size and 17 inch screen size. The 15 inch model comes with red led keyboard while the 17 inch laptop gets the RGB lighting.
Something similar to what we have seen on the Lenovo Y520 and the Y720. But the Y520 and the Y720 are way more refined to this Samsung attempt at gaming laptops. At the CES 2017 everyone is launching new Gaming Laptops including the Predator 21X ( 6 Lakh) with a curved display. Laptops… specially the gaming laptops are the show stoppers at CES 17.
Coming to the Odyssey, it has an odious build with a strange track-pad periphery. Though Samsung has added the GTX 1050 GPU, along with the Intel Core i7 7th gen processors. The laptop can come with upto 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. There is 256 GB SSD and upto 1 TB of HDD storage.
The 15 inch model will come with a price tag of 1199$ while the price for the larger model is yet to be disclosed.
Samsung ChromeBook Plus and ChromeBook Pro
Samsung has also launched the new Samsung ChromeBook Plus and Pro models in association with Google. The 12.3 inch laptops come with a stunning 2400×1600 pixel display. The design for the Samsung ChroomBook looks more like the Lenovo Yoga 710 with 360 degree rotatable hinges.
The laptops comes with 4 GB of RAM , 32 GB of internal storage and 4K video Output support. The Key Highlight is the support stylus which comes with the Notebook and it can also do inking on the screen surface which makes it a good deal for artists and designers.
