Samsung Series 9
Samsung has launched the second generation of its flagship laptop — Series 9. The company calls it the world's thinnest laptop (12.9 mm). It weighs just 1.16 kg. The laptop has an Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor, a 256GB solid state drive and 4GB RAM. Its display is 13.3 inches at 1600x900 pixels, but the laptop has no dedicated graphics card. However, Series 9 does not offer enough to prompt buyers to go for it over the Macbook Air.
Sennheiser HD 700
Sennheiser launched HD 700, its high-end open and circumaural headphones, in India last week. The company says the styling and material selection for HD 700 has been done with a lot of attention to detail to ensure the best sound quality. The headphones are paired with specially-tuned, efficient drivers. The company says the ear cups are designed so that sound waves are directed to the ears at a slight angle, for a more natural listening experience. The ear cushions are made of high-quality microfibre fabric, which should provide excellent wearing comfort.
