The Series 7, Samsung's first all-in-one desktop to hit the U.S. market, includes a fold-down 23-inch touchscreen, wireless keyboard and mouse, and HDMI out, so you can add a second HD display (as well as HDMI input, so you can use its display with a Blu-ray player, gaming console or another PC). So far, so good. However, its integrated optical drive isn't Blu-ray, limiting its appeal as an entertainment PC; its graphics performance is likely to disappoint gamers; and its touchscreen isn't quite as responsive as those on a typical tablet or smartphone. Samsung deserves credit for its sleek, stylish design, but there are better options available for both the home office and the living room.

Samsung's Series 7 is far from perfect, but it does offer some interesting features. The lack of higher-end multimedia options limits its utility, but the interesting design and decent performance come at a fair price.

Samsung's Series 7 all-in-one is a valiant attempt to enter the desktop market with a few very unique features such as a touch screen that can fold fully flat. It also features a nice touch software layer than many touchscreen based PCs lack.
