Samsung has released a slew of new products today, including its first Ultrabook, two new all in-one-PCs, a dedicated gaming Desktop and business monitors.

Of the products released, two standouts are Samsung's first Ultrabook and the company's 900A7A 27" all in one PC. Their 14" Ultrabook includes a dedicated graphics card and not the typical Intel 3000 HD recipe used in its rivals, while Smarthouse's 27 inch All In One shootout deemed the 900A7A the best so far.

"We are proud to announce the local availability of Samsung's latest IT range, highlighting our technology in the areas of portable and integrated computing, gaming and business office solutions," said Tony Ignatavicius, IT Director, Samsung Electronics Australia.

"According to the latest Samsung Better Tomorrow Research[1], one in four Australians believe that the latest technological advances and designs are important to them, illustrating the importance of providing state-of-the art products that suit a cross section of people and their home or office environment."

Below is a break-down of the new products as per the official press release:
