Need a desktop replacement, on a budget?

The Samsung R700 isn't the most powerful notebook in its market but for less than £700 there is plenty to recommend it. We found it powerful and versatile to use, especially the keyboard and screen, which are both of the highest quality. Overall, this...

If you're after a cheap and attractive desktop replacement, you could do a lot worse than the Samsung R700.

For graphics you get a 128MB nVidia 8400M GS, which is no powerhouse but does the job and will allow you to play fairly basic games such as World of Warcraft or The Sims without too much trouble. Moreover, as already mentioned, you go get an HDMI...

Samsung NP-R700 review

 

We didn't set a price limit for this month's group test, and while the other manufacturers sent us 17in models that are near the top of their ranges, Samsung's NP-R700 costs a decidedly more modest £560.

Laptops that cost less than £600 come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but all too many of them share mediocre design and build quality. That's why the R700 is so refreshing, especially because it comes from a major manufacturer

Nobody will guess what you paid for it. A stylish and well built laptop at a bargain price.

Samsung R700 T8100 review

 

The R700 isn't the most exciting laptop in the world, but there's no ignoring its value for money. It's quick, easy to use and though not stunningly attractive, wouldn't look out of place in anyone's home

Full-size keyboard ; Value for money

Relatively low screen resolution

Conclusion The R700 isn't the most exciting laptop in the world, but it certainly gets on with everything you ask of it. It is well-built, has a good keyboard, and ultimately proves fantastic value for money. Laptops like the Asus M70 are better...

Samsung R700-A003UK laptop review

 

The HP MediaSmart Server EX470 and Windows Home server should mean little effort or expertise is required to get the most from digital media from your PC system or home network.

The Samsung R700-A003UK is an excellent laptop for the money. The screen's large, the processor is fast and the drive options are vast. With a laptop like this available, why would you want to look any further?
