Reviews for the Samsung 700G7A-S01UK
Source: PC Pro Archive.org version
However, if what you need is a powerful system for home that you can put away at the end of the day, or a portable gaming and entertainment centre, this has got everything going for it, even the price. It is very expensive, but with the equivalent Alienware machine costing around £500 more, £1,430 suddenly seems much more reasonable.

The Samsung Series 7 Gamer is a good laptop that could have - and should have - been great, but ultimately it doesn't do quite enough to justify its steep price tag.

AMD Radeon HD 6970M:
High-end graphics card from AMD based on the desktop HD 6850 with UVD3 video processing and Eyefinity+.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
