Samsung's New Notebooks Are Super Skinny MacBook Clones (and Look Damn Good)

Samsung's heavy borrowing of Apple's design is pretty established by now—they're getting the shit sued out of them for it! But, undeterred, they're dropping the new Series 7 notebook, with wonderfully thin bezel, Apple looks, and great specs.

The Series 7 is only 0.9 inches thick, but the tiny bezel's what catches my attention: only 0.25 inches. That's a gorgeous thing to have in front of your face. Underneath all that brushed aluminum are some pretty damn good guts for the price: a 2.2-GHz Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 750 GB (mechanical) harddrive, AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics, and two USB 3.0 ports. For $1,300? Very nice. It may be a MacBook ripoff, but I'd like to see Apple rip off that price. [BusinessWire via Laptop Mag]
