Wrap your mind around the bold curve in Samsung’s shapely Ativ One 7 all-in-one

As the market towards all-in-one solutions continues to heat up, companies from around the globe are jumping on the train with their latest innovations that provide consumers with everything they need in a single, flush, and deliciously futuristic slate of glass and circuitry.

Samsung’s new entry in this competitive arena is the curvaceous ATIV One 7. Most of what we know about the ATIV One was already apparent in last year’s original design, but what sets this iteration apart is its new (and gorgeous) curved display.

The system will feature a 27″ 1080p panel powered by a standard internal Intel HD Graphics 5000 chip. Above the screen you’ll find a 1080p full HD webcam staring back at you, hugged closely by a pair of Dolby Surround speakers on either side.

A one terabyte hybrid hard drive picks up any storage slack you might need to work with, alongside eight gigabytes of DDR3 RAM, and an Intel Core i5 processor (exact model is still under Intel’s embargo), all running a full version of Windows 8.1. Connectivity options include two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0, and a 3-in-1 SD/SDHC/SDXC slot for expanded memory.


Another of the One’s standout features is Samsung’s hand gesture recognition, which automatically responds to up to 5 different hand-waving motions that can do everything from launch specific applications, to control navigation and scroll functions while browsing the web.

Samsung says we can expect the ATIV One Curved to hit shelves sometime in the early half of Q1 2015 at $1,299.99 base MSRP.
