Samsung’s CES press conference is usually the most lavish, and this year seems to be no different. Check out an up-close look at Samsung’s standout new gear here, including their best new TV and an interesting tablet-notebook hybrid.

8000-Series LED 3DTVs

Samsung’s top-of-the-line new LCD TV is the UN65D8000, a 65-inch 3-D LED set that one-ups last year’s ultra-thin sets by applying the same weight loss plan to the front-facing bezel, which is now just 0.2-inches thick.

Inside that slinky little bezel is a TV with all the current top-of-the-line trimmings: full web connectivity with access to Samsung’s Apps proprietary software store, a local-dimming LED backlight, 240Hz refresh rate and of course, active-shutter 3-D support.

7-Series Computer

Joining the tablet scum is this interesting hybrid machine that’s spec’d like a laptop (complete with a QWERTY keyboard) but folds into a touchscreen tablet. Unfortunately, it’s running Windows 7, which isn’t the slickest tablet experience.

BD-D7500 Blu-Ray Player

This slim deck is touted as the world’s thinnest Blu-ray player at 0.9-inches thick. It also sports a relatively svelte 3-second boot time.

9-Series Laptop

Spec’d similarly to Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Air, the 9 is a super-skinny, full-featured laptop with a Core i5 processor, 128GB SSD and built-in Wi-Max.
