Reviews for the Samsung 300E7A-S01FR

60% Samsung NP300E7A
Source: Digital Versus English
The NP300E7A is part of Samsung’s Series 3, which aims to ally affordable pricing with decent hardware. Like the Packard Bell LS44-HR, the NP300E7A isn’t the most powerful nor the best equipped of the 17.3-inch machines we’ve tested. It will nevertheless be a good replacement for a desktop computer that has become too big for daily tasks and it's also reasonably priced.
