Matte display, Low weight, Price-performance ratio
It could have been perfect: low weight, decent enough build quality, long battery life, good looks, a dedicated graphics card, and a good price-performance ratio - we even would have overlooked the lack of stability and rigidity in the design. The multimedia notebook manages to get most things right and could have been a very good solution for watching movies, editing videos, and the occasional gaming.
Big bang for a little buck
This laptop is great. It arrived promptly in perfect condition, and when I booted it up it was easy to see I was going to love it. I agree with the critical reviews--Windows 8 is the most impractical operating system for a laptop/desktop...it's a drastic shift from the old ways and makes everything so much more complicated than it has to be. But I won't dock points on the machine that it came installed on for that fact; samsung is just trying to keep with the times.
Excellent Display, Strong General and 3D Performance
Samsung's entry into the gaming specific world of mobile computing with the Series 7 Gamer certainly offers a premium experience with a corresponding $1900 price tag. Performance is excellent thanks to the core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and GeForce GTX 675M graphics. In addition to this, Samsung packs in lots of storage features with 1.5TB of storage space and a Blu-ray drive. Probably the best feature is the screen that is bright and colorful but not washed out.
Comfortable keyboard & touchpad
Samsung's Series 7 Gamer takes a new third-gen Ivy Bridge processor, updated NVIDIA graphics and a beautiful 17.3-inch full HD display and makes one powerful gaming laptop. While not only for gaming, this laptop is a definite desktop replacement powerhouse that delivers the best performance we've seen from a laptop, earning it a rare perfect score in our books.
