Samsung Enters Crowded Kaby Lake Gaming PC Fray With Odyssey Notebook Series

Kari ReynoldsJan 07, 2017

South Korean multinational company Samsung has reportedly launched its new touchscreen convertible Chromebooks at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas. However, there's still a good reason to carry around the Notebook 9's charging cable as the series features fast charging technology that can reportedly fill a charge in just 80 minutes. Buying the flawless laptop can take months of research, as each person has a specific need that should be met. The initial lineup includes the Notebook Odyssey 15 and the Notebook Odyssey 17, which are (you guessed it) 15- and 17-inch laptops. Using a 7th-gen Core i7 processor and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1050, the Odyssey should be capable of playing modern games at decent visual quality at playable frame rates on the go. That's in part because the 17-inch model has a heftier 93 Wh battery (compared to the 15-inch model's 43 Wh version). Three screws hold the removable HexaFlow vent in place; removing them grants access to the system's innards where you can add or replace storage drives and system memory. It is a pleasure to purr off the latest virtual racecar, as the design has been thoughtfully put together as per the latest ergonomics and aesthetics considerations. The smaller Odyssey model carries the NVIDIA GTX1050 graphic card, according to Tweaktown. It's a smart feature, just be warned it will chug through your battery life.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus and Pro both function as laptops or as tablets, and both versions have a 2400x1600 Gorilla Glass screen. The storage solution of the 17.3-inch Odyssey is quite interesting. But what it lacks in originality, it makes up for in power. Samsung actually did well on this occasion because you will notice that there are several manufacturers that release a larger family of gaming machines, stamp confusing model names onto them, making the purchasing decision even more of a headache than the actual purchase so commendable effort from Samsung here. Unfortunately, every Notebook 9 ships with an FHD (1920 x 1080) resolution panel and there are no higher resolution options available.
