Workhorse. The 730U3E ultrabook is a new member of Samsung's Series 7 Ultra family. A first-rate metal casing, swift hardware, a matte Full HD IPS screen and agreeable input devices are its initial key specs. We tested the model featuring 256 GB flash memory for 1349 Euros (~$1761, RRP).
83% Samsung Series 7 Ultra review

The Samsung is a little pricier than several of its nearest competitors, not to mention a fair bit heavier, but this classy Ultrabook has the goods it where it counts. With a stunning touchscreen, best-in-class graphics performance and a long-lasting battery, it’s easy to forgive the Series 7 Ultra’s minor flaws. Those after the lightest possible Ultrabook would do well to consider Sony’s featherweight VAIO Pro 13 instead, but if you can live with a few extra grams in your bag, the Series 7 Ultra is a delight.

The Samsung Series 7 is a really nice ultrabook, and a few months ago it would have been easy to recommend. That was back before Intel announced its fourth-generation Core i-series processors. The shiny Samsung Series 7 Ultra has a long battery life and nice design, but its now older processor gives us pause.
