Review Samsung Series 7 Gamer 700G7A Notebook


Attack on the gaming elite. Alienware and Asus have to watch out:

High-end screen; Illuminated keyboard; Good input devices; Good equipment; Two big HDDs; Blu-Ray drive; Recovery DVD; Great performance

Temperatures during load; Sensitive lid; Scanty battery life; High weight

17 inch laptops with a gaming graphics card, such as the Alienware M17x, the Asus G74SX, the DevilTech Fragbook, the Medion Erazer X7813, the MSI GT780R, the Schenker XMG P701 PRO or the Toshiba Qosmio X770.

Samsung Series 7 700G7A - The Future Choice of Pro-Gaming


When you think ‘gaming notebooks', Samsung probably isn't the first name that comes to mind, but that may be changing soon with the release of Samsung's 17.3-inch Series 7 700G7A.

Sleek design ; Superb value ; 3D 1080p screen + Blu-ray drive ; Great performance

Plastic construction ; High power consumption

Samsung Series 7 Chronos review


15.6-inch portable that packs power - at a price

Great screen ; Awesome power ; Lovely build ; Slim and eye catching ; Decent battery life

Heavy ; Expensive ; Touchscreen is an afterthought

Full form factor laptops have died a death in the last few months as the new focus of Windows 8 has put the emphasis on portability and hybrids. If it doesn't turn into a tablet, manufacturers don't really want to know, but that's not much use for...

Samsung 700G7A GAMER


Samsung's latest gaming laptop is a monster of a 17-inch machine, with a huge, bright screen and a powerful combination of Core i7 and ATI Radeon graphics. It's one of the heaviest laptops we've looked at, weighing in at almost 4Kg, but with plenty of...

Clear bright screen, plenty of power and memory, excellent sound

Poor battery life, lack of media controls, keys slightly too small

There's a lot to like about the Samsung Series 7 700G, if you overlook its lack of portability and battery life. Like most 17-inch laptops, this is a desktop replacement, with a Core i7 and 8GB of RAM.

Samsung Series 7 Gamer 700G7A-S02UK


Amazing processing power, huge storage, feels great, great screen, fast graphics card, understated looks, quality keyboard, nice touches like the back-lit keyboard, just an all round quality product

Speakers are poor, no bottom end, no great volume. Speakers on old laptop were much better
