Review Samsung Series 7 700Z5A Notebook

 

Elegant all-rounder. Samsung has big plans with the Chronos 700Z5

Compact case; Keyboard light; Short booting; Good workmanship; Long battery life; Big touchpad; Small power adapter; Good performance; Elegant design; Fast HDD

Low scope of interfaces; Only RAM accessible; Wobbly lid; Lack of stability; Run of the mill display

Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03)

 

I'm a sucker for skinny chassis with slot-loading optical drives. The Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03) ($1,299 list) laptop combines an elegantly slim (under one inch thick) aluminum case with slot-loading DVD±RW drive; sunny 15.6-inch screen and...

Elegant design and feature set. Bright hi-res screen and backlit keyboard. Swift boot and resume times

DVD, not Blu-ray, drive. Non-removable battery. No WiDi

A bit pricey by PC standards but $500 under a MacBook Pro, the Samsung Series 7 is a winning desktop replacement.

Samsung Series 7 Chronos (NP700Z5A-S04AU) notebook

 

The Samsung Series 7 has the look and feel of a premium laptop. Its thin and well-built base houses plenty of features, its keyboard is backlit and ...

Samsung 700Z5A

 

Samsung wowed us with its ultra-thin, surprisingly powerful Series 9 laptop earlier this year, but the £1,000-plus price tag lifted it beyond the grasp of most common folk.

Excellent performance ; Comfortable backlit keyboard ; Sharp, glare-free display ; Solid lid ; Long-lasting battery

Wrist-slicing palmrest ; Annoying touchpad ; Somehow underwhelming

If you need a portable machine to entertain you on the move, which won't be out of date any time soon, the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is well worth considering. Just don't expect great beauty.

Samsung Series 7 Chronos 700Z5A

 

Lighter than the 15in MacBook Pro yet packing better specs for nearly half the price, the metal-clad 700Z5A is an all-round champion.

Matt, high-rez screen ; Solid brushed metal chassis ; Powerful and fairly quiet ; ExpressCache SSD ; Cheaper than rivals

No Blu-ray option ; No eSATA

Samsung’s sleek, metal-clad 15.6in Chronos laptop is the most impressive MacBook Pro rival we’ve yet seen, offering a lighter machine with better specs for nearly half the price - even if it’s not quite as attractive or well-built. A quad-core Core i7...

Samsung Series 7 700Z5A hands-on

 

Samsung's Series 7 looks set to tackle Apple's MacBook Pro with its sleek aluminium styling and powerful specs. With a much cheaper price tag, it might just have a shot.

Sleek, metal styling ; Potentially powerful specs ; Cheaper than a MacBook Pro

Screen not quite full HD ; No Blu-ray drive

Samsung's Series 7 laptops look set on a mission to trouble Apple with looks and specs nipping at the heels of the Macbook Pro, but at a much lower price. If you're after a sleek-looking portable laptop that packs a power-punch, the Series 7 should...

Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S04AU)

 

Although the Series 7 is set up to be a premium laptop, the sketchy touch pad and choice of AMD graphics holds it back from being truly great. Still, excellent battery life, the matte screen and backlit keyboard may be enough to sell you.

Matte screen ; Backlit keyboard ; Excellent battery life

Sketchy touch pad will frustrate ; AMD switchable graphics aren't great
