Making a splash at CES 2015, Samsung took the wraps off of two new computer monitors, an all-in-one computer, and just the coolest solid-state drive we've ever seen.

COO of Samsung North America Tim Baxter said the pint-sized SSD was, "Putting Samsung innovation right in your hands."

This unbelievably small, portable solid state drive is called the T1. It's available in 250GB, 500GB, and 1-terabyte options; for $179.99, $299.99, and $599.99 respectively. Measuring only 53.2 x 71.0 x 9.2mm, the T1—even at its highest capacity version—weighs less than an ounce.

Not allowing LG's curved monitor get all the attention, Samsung is bringing a 34-inch 21:9 WQHD+ curved panel, and a 27-inch all-in-one computer with a curved screen. Definitely intended as an homage to Samsung's curved televisions, Samsung's SE790C boasts a viewing angle of 178˚ and a VA panel. A lone Display Port lives on the back, along with two HDMI 1.4 ports.

For all you 4K aficionados out there, keep the UE590 on your radar too. At a respectable 28 inches, this display uses a DisplayPort 1.4 hookup, as well as two HDMI 2.0 ports. Though the pricing hasn't been set for this model quite yet, we suspect its use of a TN panel will drive down the price.

Finally, sticking with the all-in-one design, Samsung's new Ativ One 7 Curved crams a 2.2GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 5400 RPM 1 terabyte hard drive behind a 27-inch curved 1080p LCD.

Availability for the monitors has been set, with the SE790C on sale January 6th of 2015, and the UE590 available in March. Samsung's all-in-one Ativ One 7 Curved will be available sometime in the first quarter of 2015 for $1,299.99.
