The 15.6-inch model currently pre-ordering for $879 through Best Buy with Core i7-2675QM CPU, 6GB RAM and dedicated Radeon 6490M graphics

The Samsung Series 7 notebook can now be pre-ordered at the Best Buy online store. Through a press release late last month, The Series 7 family was announced with a total of 4 initial models, although the 15.6-inch NP700Z5B-W01UB model will see the light of day first.

This specific Series 7 model is equipped with the brand new 2.2GHz Core i7-2675QM CPU, AMD "Xeymour" 6490M graphics, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 1600x900 resolution matte screen, DVD drive and a 750GB HDD. The included 8-cell battery is expected to provide up to a respectable 9 hours of battery life.

In terms of connectivity, users will find Gigabit Ethernet, Intel WiDi, wireless-n, 4G WiMAX, 4-in-1 card reader, HDMI, 2x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0. Overall, the aluminum-built notebook should weigh about 5.05 pounds (2.29kg).

Currently, users can pre-order the 15.6-inch Samsung for $879, which is over $100 cheaper than the MSRP. Don’t expect to receive the notebook until a few weeks later, however, as orders are not expected to arrive until sometime mid- October. In fact, Best Buy is listing the ETA at September 16th, but may in fact be a typo for October 16th.

As for the other models in the Series 7 family, they should begin appearing through official Samsung resellers and distribution channels starting October 2nd.
