Samsung ATIV Book 7 ultrabook

Samsung ATIV Book 7 has as most premium ultrabooks a backlit keyboard. Samsung’s keyboards are rarely targets of bad reviews. The craftsmanship is immaculate, the travel distance just right, the spacing and size of buttons as well. The trackpad is responsive and accurate.

A high-end Ultrabook arriving just before Haswell
Source: Engadget English
So far, it would seem that $1,060 for a machine with a Core i5 processor, 1080p touchscreen and 128GB SSD is a pretty good deal, the lack of Haswell notwithstanding. And we're not just talking about the spec sheet, though that certainly makes for a good first impression. The ATIV Book 7 has the best touchpad we've used on a Windows laptop in a long, long time.

Samsung ATIV 740U3E-K01UB

The Samsung Ativ Book 7 is generally seen as an affordable alternative to the top of the line Samsung Ultrabook Ativ Book 9. Its look and especially hardware are somewhat outdated. With brushed silver aluminum and glossy black bezel, its design resembles the standard slim ultrabook fare of the past few years. Unfortunately it has an inescapably plastic feel. The keyboard is especially cheap feeling, and the typing experience leaves much to be desired. It also only features one USB 3.0 port, which is disappointing. Interestingly, it features two video outputs which is a thoughtful touch that will appeal to some.

The 1080p display is great, bright with crisp colors. Surprisingly, for a laptop that features the third generation Ivy Bridge innards instead of the battery saving fourth generation Haswell processors, the battery life is rather impressive. It takes well over 6 hours to drain the battery during light web browsing and word processing. The performance of this machine is decent enough despite the outdated processor, and it can handle demanding games at the lowest settings. However, similarly priced competitors will beat it. At the end of the day, there are plenty of better options out there for the price. In light of the poor construction and outdated hardware, the Samsung Ativ Book 7 leaves much to be desired.

70% Samsung ATIV Book 7 review
Source: Digital Trends English
Ah, the Ultrabook. Three years ago, it didn’t exist; but today, every brand makes at least one, and many make three or four separate models at a variety of price points. Due to its outdated look and feel, and unimpressive performance, the Ativ Book 7 isn’t the best Ultrabook for the average user, but its outstanding battery life and beautiful display will appeal to travelers.

Samsung ATIV Book 7 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
The Samsung ATIV Book 7 is in a weird spot since Haswell-powered ultrabooks will be on the market very soon, which means better performance in both speed and battery life. The ATIV Book 7 performs very well in both categories, but knowing some new ATIV ultrabooks are coming down the pipe in just a few short weeks means you should consider your options. Those who want the latest and greatest may want to hold off on the ATIV Book 7 as you can either purchase another ATIV ultrabook with a Haswell chip inside of it in a few weeks, or you can wait until Samsung drops the price of this ultrabook.

60% Samsung Ativ Book 7 review: The look is fine; the feel is not
Source: PC World English
The Samsung Ativ Book 7 is a beautiful Ultrabook, but if you can’t type accurately because of its ultra-shallow keyboard, and you experience the same kinds of Wi-Fi delays that I encountered, you’re not going to be very productive—or happy—with it.

80% Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB)
Source: PC Mag English
With sleek all-aluminum construction, decent performance and battery life, and a 1080p touchscreen, the Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) clearly belongs alongside other premium ultrabooks and laptops, but its performance falls just short of leading systems, so it won't replace our current Editors' Choice, the Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T. That said, for just over $1,000, the Samsung ATIV Book 7 is a more affordable alternative to the Toshiba KiraBook, with similar looks, an HD touch screen, and only slightly slower performance. Regardless, the Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) is definitely worth looking at if you're shopping for a touch-enabled premium ultrabook.

80% Samsung Series 7 Ultra review: a very attractive Ultrabook
Source: PC Advisor English
The Series 7 Ultra is a very attractive Ultrabook – neatly designed, highly portable and with good all-round performance. It's no match for the battery life of the latest Haswell laptops, but its twin GPUs do give it some graphical horsepower, making it a good choice if you need a lightweight Ultrabook that can handle gaming and other demanding tasks.

Samsung reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 8570M:

Lower-end graphics card based on the GCN Mars architecture. The GPU is similar to the Radeon HD 8590M, but with slower DDR3 VRAM and a 64-Bit memory interface.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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


Intel Core i5:

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


13.0: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

1.6 kg:


72.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
