Reviews for the Samsung R700-A003UK

80% Samsung R700 notebook review
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Samsung R700 isn't the most powerful notebook in its market but for less than £700 there is plenty to recommend it. We found it powerful and versatile to use, especially the keyboard and screen, which are both of the highest quality. Overall, this is a great machine for any family with mixed needs and a rather limited budget.

Though the R700 is by no means feature rich or high performance, it has all the right features and good enough performance to make it a very attractive proposition at this price. A capacious 250GB hard drive and 2GB of RAM means it ticks along nicely, while HDMI output isn't a luxury you won't find on too many "budget" notebooks. Its decent battery performance is just the icing on the cake and an excellent keyboard and deceptively slim design add further to its value and appeal.

A maximum battery life of just over three hours is another bonus, although again this notebook is likely to be plugged in much of the time. The Samsung R700 is a quality desktop replacement notebook housed in an equally impressive chassis. It’s certainly capable of impressive general purpose performance, but those after a portable gaming machine need to look elsewhere.

90% Samsung R700-A003UK laptop review
Source: PC Advisor English
Samsung already has the budget laptops market sewn up with the deliciously priced £399 Samsung R60. The Samsung R700-A003UK is a rather different animal, filling in the gaps inevitably left by the R60's budget price tag. The Samsung R700-A003UK is an excellent laptop for the money. The screen's large, the processor is fast and the drive options are vast. With a laptop like this available, why would you want to look any further?

It all adds up to a very well-put together laptop, with a great screen and a sense of style that belies its low price. As long as portability isn't high on your list of priorities the R700 is a fine choice. A great 17in screen, healthy performance and attractive styling for under £500 make this a laptop worth shouting about.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS: NVidia GeForce 8400M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7400 for laptops and technologically a slower 8400M GT video card (because of the smaller 64 Bit memory bus).

 

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5450: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.
