80% Samsung Series 7 Chronos NP780Z5E review: smart, powerful desktop replacement machine
Source: PC Advisor English
It's not going to win any awards for sleek design or portability, but the strong performance and multimedia features of the Series 7 Chronos make it a good Windows desktop replacement system, while still offering usable battery life for those occasions when it needs to go out and about.

The Samsung Series 7 Chronos is one of the best Windows laptops money can buy, but in this changing world of computing, we urge you as a buyer to consider whether your needs would be served better with a lighter, more mobile machine with less emphasis on huge power.

90% Samsung Series 7 Chronos 780Z5E review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Samsung Series 7 Chronos is a worthy update to last year’s recommended model. It keeps the top-notch construction, and brings every other aspect of the laptop right into 2013. It has a great touchscreen, a high-quality display, powerful innards and impressive battery life given the power on tap. It’s not a laptop to buy if you want something to take around with you day-in, day-out as it’s just too heavy. But as a semi-portable desktop-replacer, it’s top-notch.

Model:

Many people dream of slim and robust notebooks and Samsung offers such. With the Samsung 780Z5E-S01UB, Samsung claims to take notebooks to the next level. With Windows 8, this laptop is prepared to provide reliable performance in a sleek and thin design. It looks good and delivers superior performance in an aluminum unibody. Undoubtedly, the build quality of Samsung Series 7 Chronos is top-notch. This laptop comes with a 15,5 inch fullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) 10-point touchscreen. The high visual quality is not only optimal for multimedia, but also for gaming. The JBL stereo speakers with virtual woofer and sound effects together with the stunning display provide for best user experience. The Samsung Series 7 Chronos is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and an AMD Radeon graphics card, which provide processing power for professional users. Despite being equipped with high end innards, Samsung claims a battery life of up to 11 hours.

The only downside of this laptop is that it is quite heavy with 2.4 kg. So, mobility is low, but the performance is high. Otherwise it is a great laptop and this time Samsung did almost everything right. The laptop has a high-end build quality, a touchscreen, a high-quality display, powerful innards and an excellent battery life. The Samsung Series 7 Chronos is a worthy option for users looking for powerful and robust, yet beautiful laptops.

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.  


3635QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 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.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear.
