Reviews for the Samsung 700Z3A-S01

70% Samsung Series 7 Chronos (14-inch)
Source: PC World English
Overall, the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is a very attractive machine. Unfortunately, looks can take you only so far, in laptops and in life. The Chronos is larger, heavier, and a worse performer than some Ultrabooks, but it's a great budget-friendly choice for Windows users who lust after MacBook Pros.

70% Samsung Tackles the Tween-Book
Source: Wired Magazine English
When it’s time to shop for a new laptop, everybody wants an ultrabook. But few remain quite so excited when they see the often-limited performance and inflated price tags. Samsung’s solution: Jam a standard, 14-inch laptop into what is essentially an ultrabook case, giving you (in theory) the best of both worlds.
