17" newcomer. The R730-JT06 offers a large display diagonal, a ch

Chic design; Good construction; Good keyboard; Numeric keypad; Volume; Temperatures

Limited viewing angle; No matte TFT; Relatively limited performance; Range of connections is rather mediocre

There aren't a lot of 17" devices in this price range. One competitor from Toshiba is the Satellite Pro L670. But this only offers an Intel Core i3-350M and Intel GMA graphics. But it is equipped with a matte display and Bluetooth. Another candidate...

Samsung R730 - 17.3in Laptop

 

If you want a large, easy to use laptop on a budget, the R730 could be for you.

A lot of screen for the price ; Relatively lightweight ; Roomy keyboard

Limited gaming performance ; Mediocre viewing angles ; Poor built-in speakers

before it that featured an even backlight all-round. It doesn't look as good without it.

Samsung R730 review

 

The Samsung R730 is a pretty decent budget laptop. It's not particularly fast or well equipped, but it's an attractive and dependable day-to-day machine that'll serve you well both for business and pleasure purposes

Red lid ; Comfortable keyboard ; Affordable price

Interior section isn't as attractive as the lid ; Relatively limited connectivity for such a large machine ; Mediocre performance

Conclusion The Samsung R730 isn't particularly fast or well equipped, but it's a great-looking laptop that's well suited to people on a budget

Review: Samsung R730

 

It's sometimes the case that when you're looking for a laptop within a budget price-range, you end up with a laptop that really looks like it's from that budget price-range. Thankfully that isn't the case with Samsung's R730……..
