Review Update Samsung Series 7 700Z3C-S01 Notebook

 

Longer battery life. The Ivy Bridge update from Samsung's handy 1

Bright and matte display; Good performance; Long battery life; High-performance CPU; Very good keyboard; Entry level gaming performance

Few interfaces; Low-contrast TN panel; High temperature development under load

Good craftsmanship goes hand in hand with perfect input devices. There should be more notebooks like this.

Consumer review by: Gareth (reevoo.com)

Samsung NP700Z3C-S02UK

 

Sleek design, holds charge well. Reliable so far.

trackpad is very sensitive, I often find that I have accidentally touched it whilst typing and it messes up what Ive done. Slower than I was expecting when switching between applications.

Consumer review by: Elena (reevoo.com)

Samsung NP700Z3C-S02UK

 

touchpad is whether too sensitive or too slow which causes accidental windows closure and other unwanted actions. I thought because of the weight the battery will be removable, but it's not. Not very useful for a home laptop
