Stunning Slim Bezel Display
The screen on your PC is its gateway to wonder. With Samsung's slim bezel technology, you get more in a smaller footprint. By minimizing the bezel and maximizing the screen you have a highly portable PC without sacrificing screen size. From email to presentations, photos to videos, and everything in between, make your content come alive. More screen gives you more to love.
Powerful Quad-Core Accelerated Processing
The 1.5 GHz AMD quad-core A6-3420M Accelerated Processor combines a CPU and a graphics processing unit (GPU) on a single chip, helping to accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption. The APU can quickly offload demanding tasks and applications from your CPU to the GPU, enabling you to do more with your computer in less time. You'll also get an extra boost of performance (up to 2.4 GHz of power) for those demanding calculations--or graphics-heavy tasks, right when you need it and greater power efficiency when you don't--thanks to AMD Turbo CORE Technology.
It also offers ATI Radeon HD 6520G discrete-class graphics with support for DirectX 11 for fast, vivid visuals with HDMI output so you can connect to an HDTV. And you'll be more productive away from the electrical outlet with AMD AllDay Power extended battery performance.
Exclusive Fast Start Technology
Don't be weighed down by wasted time, let your PC come alive when you need it. Your life happens on the go, you don't have time to wait for PC to shut down and power up. With Samsung's exclusive Fast Start technology, simply close the lid to enter a hybrid sleep mode. When you open the lid, you are up and running in less than 3 seconds.
