Samsung outs MacBook Pro lookalike laptop
Apple legal team rubs hands in anticipation
Samsung, oh how you must love to tempt Apple lawyers. Launched today: the Series 7 Chronos notebook, a 15.6in machine wrapped in aluminium. With a black caclulator-style keyboard. And a black lid hinge.
Yes, the Chronos is less svelte as a MacBook Pro , and not as attractively designed, either. But it's hard not to look at it and guess its inspiration.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say.
Chronos runs Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-2675QM quad-core processor. The display resolution is 1600 x 900, and it's driven by a AMD Radeon HD 6570M graphics core.

There's 8GB of DDR 3 memory on board and a 750GB hard drive.
Samsung didn't say how much this spec will cost you, but you can save a bit by settling for a 14in screen or a Core i5 CPU. ®
