Samsung R720


You might not be able to tell from the picture, but Samsung's R720 is one seriously big laptop. If you're looking for something portable, there are many better choices available.

Samsung's latest desktop replacement has a huge, high-resolution 17.3in display - and a tiny, tiny price tag

Samsung R720 17.3in notebook


Great value 17in laptop, that's not averse to a bit of light gaming. Pity there's no 802.11n Wi-Fi though.

The 17.3in screen looks good and, despite Samsung's decision to go with a Pentium Dual Core processor, the R720 returned some decent benchmark scores. Perhaps most surprising was the 3D performance afforded by the Radeon HD 4330 graphics card. Yet...

Samsung - R720


With a price tag of £599, Samsung's R720 sits in the budget desktop replacement sector. Going by looks alone, though, it certainly doesn't come across as being a budget laptop. Open up the lid and you're ...

At £599, the Samsung R720 packs in a lot. Sure, the Pentium Dual Core processor might put some people off, but the fact is it really doesn't impact performance too much. And although the Radeon HD 4330 graphics card won't be up to high-resolution,...

Great laptop


I have had this laptop for over 6 months and so far have had no problems with it. The only thing I would say is that the piano black case picks up lots of smudges. I have kept the protective plastic on for that very reason. Graphics wise this can run...

Samsung R720-JA02UK


The laptop is excellent - especially the spec and windows 7, easily the best laptop purchased to date

A bit heavy

Please help, if anyone can...


I recently bought this item and knowing I'm not the best person with this technical stuff, I thought I'd ask!

Samsung R720-JS01UK


The screen size and hard disk size are good ; The laptop's speed is generally good ; The laptop usefully includes an HDMI port, and a chargeable USB socket

The laptop is very big, but this is because it includes a full-sized keyboard ; It requires a bag specifically designed to fit a 17" laptop ; There's no Bluetooth module
