Samsung announced today that it will begin selling its ATIV One 7 Curved All-in-One PC on March 8th for $1,299.99. The ATIV One 7 Curved is the first product of its kind, an all-in-one PC with a curved screen. The company is marketing the system towards movie enthusiasts and anyone who wants a large, sleek display in a system boasting minimalist design.
“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 Gary Riding, senior vice president of mobile computing marketing at Samsung Electronics America, when the product was announced in December 2014. “With the ATIV One 7 Curved, Samsung has created a PC that exceeds consumers’ needs, while offering a stunning design that stands out in any home or small office.”Related: A review of the Samsung ATIV One 7
The curved design of the product is meant to provide a unique entertainment perspective and a more realistic gaming experience. The screen itself will be 27 inches and boast 1080p resolution. In this respect, it’s extremely similar to the Samsung SD590C monitor we recently reviewed.
The ATIV One 7 Curved has an Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB of memory. It also comes with 10-watt stereo speakers, Dolby Sound Effects, and loss-less audio transmission through APT-X technology. Bluetooth Music Play 3.0 allows users to stream music from their smartphone, and the computer will include Samsung’s SideSync 3.0 software. This lets users receive phone calls and texts directly on the PC if they have a compatible Samsung phone. You won’t have to buy a camera for the ATIV One 7 Curved, either. A 1080p webcam rounds out the default specifications.
