Samsung has taken the wraps off the world's first-ever all-in-one PC with curved screen - the ATIV One 7.
Eager consumers can catch the first glimpse of the all-in-one PC at the impending International CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
Samsung was inspired by its curved TVs to create the ATIV One 7, which will sport a 27-inch Full HD screen that is curved. With the curved display, users will get better viewing angles and a more immersive gaming experience when compared to traditional monitors.
"The arched display of the ATIV One 7, along with top-of-the-line multimedia capabilities for rich sound and easy content sharing across devices, make this model stand out from the rest as the ultimate entertainment desktop," said Samsung Electronics America's Gary Riding, VP of mobile computing marketing.
With its 4000R curvature, as well as 178 degrees viewing angle, the all-in-one PC is a feast for the senses and creates a visual experience, which betters that of a flat screen that is the same size.
The 27-inch ATIV One 7 has 1920 x 1080 pixels and a brightness of 300nit. It has a metallic deco frame that imparts a stylish look to the PC. It weighs 24.45 pounds and measures 25.15 x 1.56 x 15.08 inches.
The desktop is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and packs in Intel HD Graphics 5500. The all-in-one PC also touts 1TB of storage along with a 5400rpm embedded flash drive. The ATIV One 7 also boasts a 1090p Full HD web camera and has stereo speakers (10W x2), which work in tandem with HD Audio.
The device also has 8GB DDR3L of system memory at 1600MHz. It also packs in two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports. It is also equipped with one 3-in-1 card port for SD, SDHC or SDXC.
The desktop can also double up as a TV and one can hook up gaming consoles and cable boxes via the HDMI port.
However, the offbeat shape of the PC could take a while to catch on with potential buyers and they may require more time to get used to it per Samsung's product manager David Ng. Nevertheless, with its urbanistic looks, the ATIV One 7 could appeal to professionals who want to add a dash of style to their surroundings.
The ATIV One 7 will go on sale in Q1 2015 and will be prices at $1,299. The device will make its appearance at the International CES 2015 in a few days from now.
