First things first, it has the best keyboard I have ever used on a laptop. It also has a nice big touchpad which works well. The only confusion for me was that the DELETE key had moved a few keys to the left, which caused a bit of a puzzle until I got used to it.
The laptop itself is fast, yet remains quiet and doesn't get hot. Photoshop loads large images (40x30 inches @ 300dpi) nearly three times more quickly than it did on the 730, which is why I had to upgrade in the first place, so I am happy about that. Also, USB 3 is a major plus. I bought a 320GB USB3 HDD on Amazon and I can copy files onto the laptop at speeds approaching 100mb/s (slower for smaller files). This wasn't 10X the speed of USB2, but it was fast enough to justify a PC upgrade on that strength alone.
Now, onto the elephant in the room. This laptop comes installed with Windows 8...
What do I think of Windows 8?
Its not as bad a I first thought, and I will eventually get used to it, but when the first thing you install is a utility to give you a START button again, then it shows that something is not quite right. Also, Windows 8 and Chrome don't seem to behave very well together. IE10 flies, but chrome has sever connectivity issues (pages not loading properly etc). There is a thread on the Chrome forums about this issue, so it seems I am not alone. One person has had a similar experience with Firefox on Windows 8.Read more ›
The PC is slim when closed and the lid/screen much slimmer than is normal, although not quite to the level of the current MacBooks. The more basic model Samsung 350E7C 17.3-inch Laptop (Black) - (Intel Core i3 3110M 2.4GHz Processor, 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8), is not the lowest-specced in the range and shares many of its components but uses internal graphics rather than a dedicated GPU. The 15.6-inch 350V5C range is a smaller version and Samsung 350V5C 15.6-inch Laptop (Silver) - (Intel Core i3 3110M 2.4GHz Processor, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) was reviewed in some detail and is broadly similar other than in dimensions.
The keyboard is an excellent island design and is one of the best used by Samsung. The touch-pad is unduly large but not any larger than on the smaller 350V5C range.Read more ›
I looked to see a month later it was down to £675, and considered buying another for the wife, as after detailed browsing I decided the price for the hardware was excellent. Was at £720, and is even better now. There are some things you do have to get used to, and remember, you are buying a Samsung Laptop, not a build it yourself PC, so get ready to have to play around a bit to get the best performance from the laptop.
Build - The casing is gun-metal black, the Samsung logos are white, as is the lettering on the keys. The battery and power lights on the front are blue, red, amber depending on what status, and the clam shell comes together nicely. It is a 17" laptop though, so it is getting towards the hefty side of laptops, but still considerably slimmer the the XPS, and Alien ware builds. I like the case, it fits in the bag I used for my 15" laptop.
Processing Power - The processing power of the I7 is excellent, its a 33630 quad core at 2.4Hz, I took out the RAM from day 1, sold it on, and replaced it with 16GB of geil memory. Just a personal choice really, I had the extra £15 it cost me in the end once I had wheeled and dealed the Samsung memory away. It was the easiest install I have had to do, a black plate comes off the back and it accessible right away. The HDD is there too, I had a spare SSD so I replaced that also with a Samsung 840 pro 256GB. I also installed a fresh version of Win 8 Pro so RAM allocation of the 16GB was better, and away I was. I didn't sell the 1tb I removed I put that in a rack, but the 256GB could be exchanged without cost, depending on if you want the quick boot up and read and write speeds over the extra storage.Read more ›
