Samsung RV720 - Pocket-lint


Cheap, cheerful and just a little chunky, the Samsung RV720 is an impressive budget 17-inch laptop that's a step up from the usual desktop replacement

Good build quality, good layout and a decent screen at a good price.

You might not expect Blu-ray at this price but no USB 3 is disappointing, the glossy screen is problematic.

Samsung calls its Essential range "reliable, sturdy and powerful" and we'd tend to agree. The RV720 is proof that budget notebooks don't have to look and feel cheap. There are certainly missing features, but there aren't many 17-inch Core i3 systems...

Samsung RV720 review


One thing that sets Samsung's budget laptops apart from the competition is their style. Even when you're spending around £500, you can guarantee the laptop will look fantastic. The RV720 is no exception, with its gunmetal grey finish and stylish...

Samsung RV720


Want a large laptop without the large outlay? Samsung's cheap but cheerful 17.3in effort comes highly recommended.

Bargain pricing ; Great usability ; Attractive, durable design ; Good build quality ; 750GB HDD

Limited performance ; No USB 3 ; No Blu-ray ; Glossy screen ; Poor audio

Though its connectivity and specifications are nothing to get excited about, its solid build, decent battery life, excellent design and great usability - along with a totally bargain price - ensure that this Samsung is one of the best 17.3in laptops...

Samsung RV720 17in Core i3 notebook


Review Desktop replacement laptops are a genre of portable computer apparently intent on chuntering on forever without ever truly succeeding or dying. By nature, they tend not to be petite, and Samsung's RV720 is no exception.

The Samsung RV720 is a very capable machine, and those looking for a general purpose PC to use at home won't do much better for the money. There's not a spectacular amount of performance, but it will handle most jobs including creative tasks such as...

Samsung Big Notebook RV720 : Samsung RV720 Notebook Computer


Finally I think some manufacturers are listening when people moan about the black surrounds showing fingermarks. The solution is to simply remove the black, on this only the base and the keyboard area are the dreaded black.

The processor is Intel Core i3 2310M, it comes with 4GB of RAM and 674GB hard disk spread over ‘C’ and ‘D’. The Windows Experience score is 4.7 made up of Processor 6.4, Memory 5.9, Graphics 4.7, Gaming Graphics 6.0 and Hard Disc 5.9. I found the...
