5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: This laptop is extraordinarily well built. The aluminum is both beautiful and sturdy. The keyboard is beautifully back-lit and a pleasure to type on. The "fast boot" technology is exactly as advertised. Boot times are significantly reduced. Sleep mode is now useful since it only takes 3 seconds to come back, and even Firefox boots in a snap!

Cons: If I had the extra cash I would have liked to go with an SSD model. That would have made it even faster. Also on initial boot it asks you to do a virtual partition on the drive. I have no idea why they want to do this, but it tells you that if you don't opt for a virtual partition you can't do a restore. Lame!

Other Thoughts: The guy who commented about the screen colors is IMHO too picky. But there is some Samsung "bloatware" that has color presets that you can change. Also, when you play a movie, the "movie" color scheme kicks in. Not sure what their logic is on this. Switchable graphics has some issues still, but I've played LOTRO, Portal, Civ V. All with good results considering.

3 out of 5 eggsSamsung S7 NP700Z3A cont'd

Pros: see other thoughts

Cons: see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I wanted to quickly amend my previously negative review with one additional note. You can, in a roundabout sort of way adjust the contrast on this display. Go to color management => Advanced => Calibrate Display. Here you can at least adjust the gamma and color mix (there still is no contrast adj even though the wizard takes you through how it works). That being said, by turning OFF Aero, you can achieve a much more visually pleasing result (read NO Microsoft blue!) and set your own color scheme along with a much more desirable color and gamma level. It is what it is, but this definitely helped!

3 out of 5 eggsSamsung S7 14" NP700Z3a

Pros: * 8gb mem
* slot loading DVD
* 1TB HD
* quiet fan
* excellent keyboard (adj back-lighting)
* reasonably good sound
* high rez (1660px) and bright LCD (non glossy - yeah!)
* easy settings and software manager way better than HP's version
* solid build, metal

Cons: * LCD screen is a cheap TN panel. About as low end as you can put in a laptop. It seriously degrades an otherwise excellent product.
* viewing angles are barely suitable for one user
* color and contrast NOT adjustable
* could use a 3rd USB port
* increasing brightness decreases contrast noticeably
* Windows 7 overall blueish tint does not go down well with this machine.
* You'll notice I am only bumming about the LCD, because otherwise, it's an excellent notebook. For my money the Ultrabook is too limiting. Right now the 14" category is the sweet spot in Windows laptops. In an office environment, an ethernet port is a must. Wireless will never be as fast as 'on the wire'.

Other Thoughts: It gets even worse. Even with a dedicated GPU, (AMD), the settings for the LCD are fixed and non-adjustable (thank you rude chat tech). You have control over one thing only. Brightness. The contrast and color settings are terribly muted and because of the limited viewing angles, it only exacerbates an already cheap effort by Samsung to keep their margins high (or whatever motivates them)

My wife has a MacBook Air 13.3. I can stand off at a 45 degree angle (or greater) and the viewing angle is still really, really good. All the PC manufacturers talk about competing with Apple but in the end, for whatever reason, they can't. This laptop 'couldah been a contendah'

To be fair, its a couple of hundred less than a MAC, but why build such good specs and then throw in a TN panel that will turn potential customer away. If you just do email and Word ... you'll probably be OK (pretty pricey for that), but for anything else, I would NOT recommend the Samsung Series 7 line of notebooks.
