Reviews for the Samsung 740U3E-A01UB

84% Review Samsung ATIV Book 7 740U3E-A01UB Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
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 the subject of our review.

The Samsung Series 7 Ultra (NP740U3E-A01UB) is a solid entry into the premium ultrabook category, but it’s a category filled with fierce competition from all sides. The Samsung Series 7 Ultra (NP740U3E-A01UB) ultrabook offers style and substance with solid performance, all-metal construction, and a 1080p touch screen.

Finally, an ultrabook that can rival the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A and Apple MacBook Air. The Samsung Series 7 Ultra has processing power, battery life, a quality screen, beautiful finish and tons of connectivity. That said, they shouldn't have even bothered with the touchscreen, because it doesn't add much to the user experience—all it does is add to the price and drag down the battery life. Otherwise, this is definitely a keeper!

The Samsung Series 7 Ultra is an easy Ultrabook to recommend. It has excellent build quality and materials, an attractive aluminum casing that resists fingerprints and a superb 1080p touch screen. The Samsung Series 5 is an attractive and more affordable model, but the display can't compare and most ship with slower conventional HDDs.
