Review Samsung ATIV Book 7 740U3E-A01UB Ultrabook


A book for the road. Samsung's 13.3-inch Ultrabook features a 3rd-generation i5 CPU with integrated graphics, a 128 GB SSD, and a Full-HD touchscreen. How well the sleek-looking Ultrabook with previous-generation hardware compares to its competition is...

Attractive chassis; Very good 1080p touchscreen display; All-metal construction; Easy to expand (both RAM and mSATA SSD); Good battery life

Comparatively small 128 GB SSD; Fairly heavy; No updated processor available; Keyboard lacks feedback

Convertibles like the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Ultrabook and Dell XPS 12, standard touchscreen designs like the Lenovo IdeaPad U330p and Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Touch, and non-touch Ultrabooks like the incredibly thin Acer Aspire S5 or the Asus Zenbook...

Review Samsung Series 7 Ultra Touch 740U3E-S02DE Ultrabook


The more the better! Samsung packs the Series 7 flagship in an al

Aluminum chassis; Good workmanship; Great FHD IPS panel; Multi-touch display; Very good viewing angles; Cool and quiet under normal usage; A lot of interfaces for an ultrabook; First-class input devices; Very good performance and battery life; Good sound

No DisplayPort; A bit too loud under load

The competing notebooks are among others the Acer Aspire S7 391, the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-C4027H, the Samsung 730U3E-S04DE, and the Apple MacBook Air 13.

Samsung Ativ Book 7 review: The look is fine; the feel is not


The Samsung Ativ Book 7 has a high-resolution touchscreen display and fabulous battery life, but its keyboard will drive touch-typists bonkers.

Very good benchmark performance ; High-res touchscreen ; Great battery life

Horrid keyboard ; Annoying delays while on Wi-Fi

The Samsung Ativ Book 7 has a high-resolution touchscreen display and fabulous battery life, but its wonky Wi-Fi performance is a problem and its keyboard will drive touch typists bonkers.

Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB)


The Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) ultrabook offers style and substance with solid performance, all-metal construction, and a 1080p touch screen.

Slim, stylish all-metal construction. Touch-enabled 1080p display. Excellent touchpad

Reflective keys are hard to read. Only one USB 3.0 port. Small 128GB drive

The Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) is a solid entry into the premium ultrabook category, but it's a category filled with fierce competition from all sides. The ATIV Book 7 has all the elements of a great ultrabook, like a stylish but sturdy...

Samsung Series 7 Ultra 740U3E review


A beautiful Full HD touchscreen display and dedicated graphics chip make this Ultrabook excellent value

The Samsung Series 7 Ultra is a stunning laptop and you get a lot for your money. If you want an all-round, this is the model to buy, but if you want more battery life and something lighter, go for the

Samsung Series 7 Ultra NP740U3E


A slim, light and portable laptop that plays games decently. What's not to like?

Light, stylish and portable ; Can play games at decent settings ; Sharp and colourful touchscreen

No optical drive ; Screen wobbles when touched

The only slight downside here is that the screen feels a little flimsy when it’s supposed to be locked into position. It doesn’t slip down without contact, but it often wobbles when you’re using the touchscreen, which is annoying.

SAmsung 13.3" Notebook


Would have been nice to have a bit larger SSD but at least it is a Samsung EVO. The best in my opinion. And they are NOT all created equal.

Absolutely wonderful little notebook. Light, thin, fast, backlit keyboard, SSD! Bought this for the daughter of a friend who is starting her first year in college. Wanted something easy to carry, dependable and relatively trouble-free. She had...
