Samsung Ativ Book 7 review: The look is fine; the feel is not


The Samsung Ativ Book 7 has a high-resolution touchscreen display and fabulous battery life, but its keyboard will drive touch-typists bonkers.

Very good benchmark performance ; High-res touchscreen ; Great battery life

Horrid keyboard ; Annoying delays while on Wi-Fi

The Samsung Ativ Book 7 has a high-resolution touchscreen display and fabulous battery life, but its wonky Wi-Fi performance is a problem and its keyboard will drive touch typists bonkers.

Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB)


The Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) ultrabook offers style and substance with solid performance, all-metal construction, and a 1080p touch screen.

Slim, stylish all-metal construction. Touch-enabled 1080p display. Excellent touchpad.

Reflective keys are hard to read. Only one USB 3.0 port. Small 128GB drive.

Conclusion With sleek all-aluminum construction, decent performance and battery life, and a 1080p touchscreen, the Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) clearly belongs alongside other premium ultrabooks and laptops, but its performance falls just short...

Review Samsung ATIV Book 7 740U3E-A01UB Ultrabook


A book for the road. Samsung's 13.3-inch Ultrabook features a 3rd-generation i5 CPU with integrated graphics, a 128 GB SSD, and a Full-HD touchscreen. How well the sleek-looking Ultrabook with previous-generation hardware compares to its competition is...

Attractive chassis; Very good 1080p touchscreen display; All-metal construction; Easy to expand (both RAM and mSATA SSD); Good battery life

Comparatively small 128 GB SSD; Fairly heavy; No updated processor available; Keyboard lacks feedback

Convertibles like the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Ultrabook and Dell XPS 12, standard touchscreen designs like the Lenovo IdeaPad U330p and Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Touch, and non-touch Ultrabooks like the incredibly thin Acer Aspire S5 or the Asus Zenbook...

Review Samsung Series 7 Ultra Touch 740U3E-S02DE Ultrabook


The more the better! Samsung packs the Series 7 flagship in an al

Aluminum chassis; Good workmanship; Great FHD IPS panel; Multi-touch display; Very good viewing angles; Cool and quiet under normal usage; A lot of interfaces for an ultrabook; First-class input devices; Very good performance and battery life; Good sound

No DisplayPort; A bit too loud under load

The competing notebooks are among others the Acer Aspire S7 391, the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-C4027H, the Samsung 730U3E-S04DE, and the Apple MacBook Air 13.

Samsung Series 7 Ultra NP740U3E


A slim, light and portable laptop that plays games decently. What's not to like?

Light, stylish and portable ; Can play games at decent settings ; Sharp and colourful touchscreen

No optical drive ; Screen wobbles when touched

The only slight downside here is that the screen feels a little flimsy when it’s supposed to be locked into position. It doesn’t slip down without contact, but it often wobbles when you’re using the touchscreen, which is annoying.

Samsung Series 7 Ultra 740U3E review


A beautiful Full HD touchscreen display and dedicated graphics chip make this Ultrabook excellent value

It won’t be able to handle really heavy duty games, as we weren't able to get smooth frame rates in our more demanding Crysis 2 test at 1080p. We had to lower the resolution to 1,280x720 and set the quality to High to get a more playable 26.7fps, so...

Great combo for the price


Sleek, small form factor, reasonable resolution. Easy to upgrade memory (went to 16GB RAM and 500GB SSD).

Battery life is only reporting about 5 hours. Have not run it down yet, but this seems at odds with some reviewers saying they were getting 10 hours out of it.

Nice laptop I can tell for simple tasks and great. I haven't run gaming yet.

smooth touch feeling, good music sound, fast speed

Not much really. Since this laptop contains only basic keyboard configuration, it might be hard to use shortcut keys like home, end, and using shift function. Hard disk might be a bit risky since it is only 160 gb ssd

Great for the Price


Great Battery life, quality and durability.

I guess the some-what noisy fan sound it makes when its charging. But as soon as its done charging or unplugged the noise is gone
