Chuck out your desktop

Top three mobile application threats

Apple may be considering an end to the production of 17in desktop-replacement laptops, but Samsung isn't. It just announced the 17.3in Series 7 Chronos 17.

Specs include a third-generation 'Ivy Bridge' quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, the 2.3GHz i7-3615QM, to be precise; 8GB of 1600MHz DDR 3 memory; an 8GB Flash cache ahead of the machine's 1TB hard drive; and an Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics with 2GB of dedicated video Ram to drive the Chronos' 1920 x 1080 matte display.

The notebook supports Nvidia's Optimus technology to allow it to save power by using the i7's integrated graphics when it can.

Alas, there's no word on pricing and availability just yet. ®
