South Korean tech giant Samsung officially entered the desktop market with the announcement of its ATIV Book 9, an all-aluminum laptop and ATIV One 7 Curved, the company’s first curvaceous all-in-one PC. The computers will be released beginning this 2015 possibly posing an enormous challenge to Apple’s MacBook Air series.

The ultraportable laptop will be further discussed at the CES 2015 in Las Vegas. The ATIV Book 9 measures 0.46 inches thick and weighs just over two pounds. Its aluminum body is both thinner and lighter than the 11-inch MacBook Air qualifying it as the lightest Book 9 ever. The Ativ Book 9 will feature a 12.2-inch display offering resolution up to 2560 x 1600. Samsung has also included an excellent outdoor mode that enables people to adjust the brightness as high as 700 nits. The Book 9 uses one of Intel’s new Core M 5Y10c processors, which were designed specifically to allow for skinnier designs. The Core M is accompanied by an Intel HD 5300 graphics processor; the RAM is either 4GB or 8GB, with 128GB or 256GB of storage,720p HD webcam, two USB 3.0 ports, micro HDMI output, Ethernet (supplied through an adapter dongle), headphone/mic combo port, two 1.5W speakers, and Windows 8.1. Battery life is rated at 10.5 hours.

The Ativ Book 9 will be available for pre-order sometime in the first quarter of 2015, starting at $1,199 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. For $1,399.99 users will get 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. International pricing and availability information is not available yet.

Moving on, Samsung also unveiled the ATIV One 7, the company’s first curved-screen all-in-one.

The Samsung ATIV One 7 features 27-inch screen with gentle curve display with a Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) resolution. Despite the slight curve of the display, Samsung says it features wide viewing angles, a respectable 178 degrees. The system is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and Intel HD Graphics 5500. It comes with 8GB of DDR3L-1600 RAM, 1TB built-in storage, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports (two each), 3-in-1 memory card reader, two 10W stereo speakers, Full HD webcam, and Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Similar to other Samsung PCs, the curved ATIV includes SideSync software, which allows users to control their phone through the PC, mirror its display in a window and even let’s them make and receive calls and texts all from the curved monitor.

The ATIV One 7 Curved will soon be available beginning Q1 2015 for $1,299.99.
