Review Samsung Series 7 700Z5C Notebook


Rejuvenation. Samsung refreshes its Series 7 models and launches

Good performance; Elegant, luxurious-looking aluminum design; Very compact case; Good input devices; Long battery life; Solid workmanship; Matte display & HD+ resolution

Modest panel (Contrast, Viewing angles); Few upgrade possibilities; Display hinges are slightly spongy; Mere 5400 rpm HDD

The great battery life, which endures 4.5 - 5 hours of DVD/WLAN use at maximum brightness before giving out.

Samsung Series 7 Chronos Review


IT MIGHT SEEM like ultrabooks have overtaken the laptop landscape, what with all the attention they've received lately in the press and at CES, but there are still plenty of folks who prefer a more substantial laptop for general-purpose computing....

Feature-rich; capable performer; subtly stylish; great battery life

Buggy trackpad; poor vertical off-axis on screen

Samsung Series 7 Chronos 17-inch


The 17-inch version of the Samsung Series 7 Chronos provides an excellent multimedia experience in a sleek design with a bright HD display and JBL speakers.

Click to EnlargeThe $1,499 Samsung Series 7 Chronos looks great, sounds great, and is pleasantly thin and light for a 17-inch notebook. The quad-core processor combined with Nvidia's 650M graphics give this multimedia notebook plenty of pep, whether...

Samsung Series 7 Chronos Review: Pretty Without Breaking the Bank


If you're looking to satisfy your craving for brushed-metal exteriors, look no further than the mesmerizing 14-inch Samsung Series 7 Chronos. The machine's subtle minimalism and smooth curves may suggest a MacBook Pro wannabe, but it bears the...

Gorgeous ; Good price point

Uncreative--obviously tries to imitate MacBook Pro ; Much heavier than it looks

The perfect notebook for Windows users who lust after MacBook Pros.

Review: Samsung Series 7 Chronos 14-inch


Samsung's latest jams a standard, 14-inch laptop into what is essentially an ultrabook case, giving you (in theory) the best of both worlds.

Ultra-flat keyboard makes touch-typing surprisingly difficult. Average, unimpressive general app performance. Crash-prone. Could use an extra USB port or two. Weak battery life (barely 4 hours under load)

Samsung Series 7 Chronos (15-inches) Review


The Samsung Chronos 7 has a strong combination of portability and performance, particularly for a 15.6-inch system. Though its quad-core Core i7 CPU and Radeon 6750 GPU help it outperform the $1,249 HP Envy 15 , we prefer the Envy for its brighter...

Strong graphics performance, Fast boot time, Long battery life, Solid audio

Relatively dim screen, Uncomfortable palmrest

Samsung Series 7 Chronos


Thin and light may be the name of the game for many when it comes to mobile computing, but there's still plenty of folks who need a full-featured portable machine. Samsung's Series 7 Chronos is just such a PC, packing an optical drive, numpad and...

Great battery life ; Matte display ; Loads of connectivity in a thin profile

Flaky touchpad ; Fit and finish leave something to be desired ; No 1080p display option

The Series 7 Chronos' matte screen, backlit keyboard and prodigious battery life make for a compelling package. But, a glitchy touchpad and middling build quality are holding it back.

Samsung Series 7 Chronos review


When it comes to phones and tablets, Samsung and Apple's battle is no secret. Take a look at this commercial or peruse the back-and-forth litigation and you'll get a fine look at how fierce the fight has become. However, in the fight for laptop...

Crisp, matte display ; Can adjust brightness of backlit keyboard ; Great performance ; Relatively thin for its size

Build quality could be better ; Loud fan noise ; No Blu-ray or HD display option ; Terrible vertical viewing angles

HP's Envy looms on the horizon, but Samsung has crafted one of the best Windows 7 laptops out there right now

Samsung Series 7 (15-inch) review


First came the Series 9, then the Series 3; Samsung, an increasingly impressive manufacturer of laptops, has chosen to make 2011 the year to debut a variety of notebooks delineated by series numbers. The Series 7 line falls between the high-end...

The Samsung Series 7 laptop has a thin screen bezel, a sleek and attractive metal chassis, and plenty of processing power and features, along with an extremely impressive battery life and a crisp backlit keyboard. Dedicated AMD graphics also come...

While the large multitouch click pad is the same size as a MacBook Pro's, it's not as responsive. This pricey laptop also lacks Blu-ray and a 1080p screen.

Samsung's Series 7 Chronos 700Z5A-S03 is the closest Windows equivalent to a MacBook Pro in terms of specs, power, and design and even nearly matches on battery life, but it's $500 less expensive than an entry-level Apple 15-incher.

Samsung Series 7 Chronos


While carrying a thin, light, and small laptop is easy on your back, there's something to be said for having all the conveniences of a desktop PC with you wherever you go. Working on a large screen with discrete graphics, and having an optical drive...

Superior display ; Strong performance for the price ; Comfortable keyboard ; Elegant appearance ; Good Webcam and sound ; Lightweight for the screen size

Touch pad requires adjusting ; Battery is not swappable

This consumer-oriented powerhouse laptop performs well, has a beautiful screen, and is very well-balanced overall. It's an ideal pick for media enthusiasts and light-to-moderate gamers.
