Samsung Q70 Review


The Q70 comes with a shiny black cover, which is the current Samsung family styling. However, perhaps to set it apart from the slightly smaller Q45, it has been given a dark grey brushed aluminium palm rest and keyboard surround

An excellent display with bright, uniform illumination and contrast ; Effective and quiet cooling system ; Good audio volume and quality for this size of notebook ; Powerful CPU and generous RAM and hard disk capacity ; The brushed aluminium palm rest...

Relatively fat for this size of notebook ; Very small right shift key (on the UK version) with some other keys in non-standard places ; A limited selection of ports compared to other notebooks in this size range ; The provision of a PC card slot rather...

I am certain that Samsung can interchange the motherboard with the Q45 so they could quickly introduce a model with the X3100 GPU and much better battery life. If mine had come in that configuration then I would probably keep it because my own priority...

Samsung Q70 notebook - Pocket-lint


Samsung may not be the first name you think of when considering a notebook but in the last 12 months, the company has released a surprising number of machines.

Powerful, well-built, good battery life

The screen is flat and washed-out

The Samsung Q70 is a good all-round notebook that will suit the daily traveller. While the screen isn’t as bright as we’d have liked, the battery life and keyboard make this a great notebook for using on the daily commute or in the University library....

Samsung R70 laptop - Pocket-lint


Samsung may be better known for its mobile phones but it's had a wide range of notebooks for the best part of 5 years now and with the latest design

Powerful, great spec for price

Easily scratched

We may have started this review with a negative outlook on the Samsung R70 but it’s the only complaint on a machine that more than delivers on power and is certainly worth the asking price.

Samsung R70 review


The chassis may not be a new design, but it's attractive and feels well made.

Although we've seen Samsung's R70 before, we really wanted to compare this updated model against the competition. This may not be the fastest laptop in 2D or 3D applications, but its keyboard, large hard disk and long battery life make it an award winner.

Samsung Aura R70 Santa Rosa - Exclusive Preview


With Intel launching its Santa Rosa platform today, Riyad gets to grips with Samsung's latest laptop.

The new CPU is backed up by the latest incarnation of Intel's 965 Express chipset which now supports an 800MHz front side bus ? this means that the T7300 CPU in this R70 only requires a 10x multiplier to reach its 2GHz core frequency rather than the...

Samsung - R70


Samsung's marketing blurb for the R-series says that it is inspired by technology (well, we'd certainly hope so), is user-friendly and ideal for the whole family. The latest member of the clan, the R70, holds up ...

Another winner from Samsung: this laptop has a great blend of features, performance and price. The inclusion of an HDMI port is a real plus point in its favour. Samsung's R70 may carry a budget price tag, but it's very well built and packed with features.
