70% Samsung 17-inch Series 7 Chronos (NP700Z7C-S01US
Source: PC Mag English
The Samsung 17-inch Series 7 Chronos (NP700Z7C-S01US) desktop replacement laptop has a lot going for it and a decent amount of power. But bloatware and a few other missteps keep it from gaining our highest honors.

Samsung Series 7 NP700Z7C Review
Source: AnandTech English
For the second straight laptop review, what started out as a system with a lot of promise ends up falling short of my expectations. For many users, the Samsung Series 7 will work very well, but enthusiasts or other folks that tend to push their hardware to its limits may end up less impressed. Let’s start with the good though, as there are many areas where Samsung gets things right.

80% Samsung Series 7 Chronos 17.3-Inch Review
Source: Computer Shopper English
In a world of 17.3-inch bruisers and juggernauts, the Samsung Series 7 Chronos stands out. It's not exactly a 17.3-inch-screened ultrabook, but it's as reasonably close to one as we're likely to see. It offers an impressive blend of desktop-replacement performance in a remarkably slim and stylish chassis. Its Core i7 processor provides all the horsepower you'll need, whether you're encoding audio and video files, running office productivity tasks, or just kicking back to watch a movie on the spacious screen.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M: A mid-range GPU and the fastest GeForce GT as part of the 600M series

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3615QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1200 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
