The slew of Windows 8 devices continues
Samsung's stand at Computex Taipei 2012 is home to a lot of prototypes running Windows 8. The Series 7 all-in-one PC has been around for quite some time though - although not in the UK - and the company has now updated it for the impending launch of Windows 8.
The 27 inch display is touch sensitive and can support ten fingers pawing it at once. The screen itself is rather shiny, with Samsung representatives looking on nervously as our greasy fingers left unattractive streak marks all over it.
This is certainly a big problem with touchscreen all-in-one PCs, and the Series 7 is no different. Manufacturers of screen cleaning products will no doubt be pleased. While the 2560 by 1440 resolution is impressive, the smudges and smears do not.
The design is pleasing on the eye with a slim bezel and a slick, metallic stand.
As with so many things at Computex, there's no word on when - or if - it'll come to the UK, let alone how much it will cost. For now, it is yet another example of how Windows 8 could be used.
