Samsung RF710 - Intel Core i7
Good General Performance, Relatively Light For 17inch Laptop, USB 3.0 Ports
Quadcore CPU; decent at games; lightweight for a 17inch notebook; good price.
Big hard drive plus Bluray playback, Responsive keyboard and excellent trackpad.
A fast quad-core processor. Good graphics performance. Excellent typing and navigating experience. Reasonably priced. Blu-ray drive included.
Older More Modest Performing 3D Graphics, Display Lacks 1080p HD Video Support, Annoying Hard Drive Partitioning
We’d prefer a 1920x1080 screen; GPU isn’t great for new games; glossy black lid means smudges.
Disappointing display, Gaming performance seems lackluster.
Small battery yielded subpar battery life. Design is a big yawn. Resolution maxes out at 720p.
