08 Jun 12 Samsung Series Laptops, Chrome-Based PCs Look to Make an Impact


When it comes to mobile devices and smartphones, Samsung is considered the world’s top-selling company, outselling even Nokia, which held the crown for many years. However, when it comes to PCs, specifically laptops, the company is far behind the likes of Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo and Dell. In fact, Samsung doesn’t even crack the top 5 in terms of shipments. In PC shipments, Samsung ranks eighth worldwide, but the company did grow 7 percent year-over-year, according to Gartner’s 2012 first-quarter report on the global PC market. However, Samsung is looking to change that with the same method it used to take the mobile crown. At a recent New York City event, the company showed off several laptops based on Windows 7 and using Intel’s newer Ivy Bridge chips. In addition, the company is ready to jump on the Windows 8 bandwagon later this year. Samsung is also teaming up with its mobile partner, Google, to offer several Chrome-based PCs, including a revamped Chromebook and the Chromebox—a miniaturized desktop designed for small spaces. Still, does Samsung have the breadth and depth to compete with the other big PC players? Here’s a look at what Samsung is offering for business users, as well as consumers.
