Reviews for the Samsung Series 7 700Z3A-S03DE

81% Review Samsung Series 7 700Z3A-S03DE Notebook | Notebookcheck
Well-rounded ultrabook. Long battery runtimes, a matt screen and high performance - it almost looks as if Samsung has made the dream of a perfect mobile companion come true. But is the notebook for over €1000 really as perfect as it seems?
