CES will feature no shortage of Windows 8 Ultrabooks, and Samsung has already announced two models it will showcase: the Series 7 Chronos (pictured above) and the Series 7 Ultra.

Aimed at professionals, the Chronos boasts impressive specs, including a quad-core Intel processor, up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB of storage and a dedicated graphics card with 2 GB of memory. Just 0.82 inches thick, it should still be sturdy, thanks to its aluminum body. The 15.6-inch screen supports 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, and Samsung says the computer can run up to 11 hours between battery charges. The Ultrabook also includes a RAM accelerator that is designed to increase app and browsing speeds by up to 150%.

With a 13.3-inch screen, the Series 7 Ultra is smaller than the Chronos, but, like its sibling, it offers 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution and an aluminum enclosure. Designed as a multimedia laptop, it includes either an Intel i5 or i7 processor and an AMD graphics card with 1 GB of memory. Battery life is advertised at around eight hours, and the Ultrabook has the added benefit of 4G LTE connectivity.

Both models offer the full Windows 8 experience thanks to touch-enabled screens.
