Evaluation

We were especially taken by the fact that the top of this unit is divided into two sections made in different colors and materials. The designers successfully achieved their aim of creating a PC with a strong identity that can instantly be recognized as a Samsung product. Splitting the top in two emphasizes the slimline, wide look, and the contrasting expression of the different materials will contribute to the consumer's pleasure in owning this product.
