The Series 7 Chronos offers desktop-PC performance—plus a top-notch keyboard, speaker system, and 17.3-inch display—in a stylishly slim 6.3-pound notebook. Our gripes are minor: The battery is sealed-in, and there's no Blu-ray drive....

On the whole, the Samsung Series 7 Chronos performed almost as well as the last 15-inch MacBook Pro we tested (2011). Plus, it sells at a lower price. It has a good finish, powerful components (processor and graphics card), a matte screen and a decent...

Overall, we were very impressed with the Samsung Series 7 Chronos, and with a price tag of £900 it appears to be well worth it considering the equivalent MacBook Pro features half the amount of RAM and less video-memory for a slightly higher...

Samsung's new Series 7 Chronos is a good-looking product, but we’re not entirely convinced it’s best in class. There are two variants, and we had a look at the less expensive NP700Z5A-SO4AU, which retails for...

The Samsung Series 7 Chronos is a great notebook that offers a lot of the kinds of thing I tend to harp on about, such as a big screen, a full keyboard, USB 3.0 ports and a multi-touch trackpad. With so many competitively priced notebooks around, you...

When you need a full-strength laptop packed with power and style, Samsung’s Chronos 7 may be just the ticket – a notebook that feels smaller and more powerful than a typical 15-incher. Unlike the stripped-down, thin light notebooks coming...

With the Series 7 Chronos, Samsung has turned its talents to making a commoditised version of the Apple MacBook Pro. It has much of the same technology inside, and borrows heavily in certain design cues, but using cheaper materials to allow a lower...

The Samsung Series 7 Chronos offers plenty of power and value. For $1,100 you get the same specs as the 15" MacBook Pro with Apple's resolution upgrade for nearly half the price. In fact, we prefer the Chronos' keyboard backlighting and Windows...

4.00 In size, shape, CPU, and slot-loading, it's impossible not to compare the Samsung Series 7 with Apple's ($1,799 direct, 4 stars), an equally elegant slab of aluminum with the same 2.2GHz processor. The slightly heavier (5.5 pounds)...

Although the Series 7 is set up to be a premium laptop, the sketchy touch pad and choice of AMD graphics holds it back from being truly great. Still, excellent battery life, the matte screen and backlit keyboard may be enough to sell...
