Samsung R700 notebook


Samsung has been aggressively targeting the notebook market of late with a range of machines that offer a powerful specification at low prices. We're usually wary of such bargains as packing too much power into a basic chassis can often lead to...

Good spec, great price

No real problems

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...

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.

Samsung R700


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-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?

Samsung R700


Looking for a reasonably pricde desktop replacement? Samsung's latest model may be just the ticket.

It's rare to find a big manufacturer making a significant impact on the budget laptop scene. Opting for a major name usually means paying that little bit extra - a bit like buying designer label jeans over a supermarket brand. But Samsung manages to...
