Samsung 350E7C Laptop
Now there's a notebook all the family can enjoy. With the blistering power of a high-speed Intel processor, large storage and fast memory you can get things done--quickly. A flexible range of ports, an ergonomic keyboard and anti-reflective screen ensure effortless usability.
Built For Speed
Get things done quickly with the 3rd generation Chief River Intel Core i7 (up to Quad Core) / i5 / i3* processor, and up to 1TB HDD and 8GB memory. Enjoy faster web browsing, Microsoft Office tasks and music or video conversion, with quick response time even from the most demanding applications.
Fully Expandable Ports
Exchange data rapidly with any external device at up to 5 Gbps using a USB 3.0 port that’s 10x faster than normal. A HDMI port and VGA port allow you to connect easily to any modern TV or large screen monitor, so you can watch films, look at pictures or enjoy a larger viewing area.
The Key to Easier Use
A high quality, stylish island-type keyboard with a numeric keypad makes typing easier, so you get more done and waste less time correcting errors. In addition to a Fn Lock Key and improved arrow key layout, its ergonomic design features isolated keys with optimised spacing for maximum comfort.
The anti-reflective LED screen lets you enjoy images that are fine-tuned with the sharpest details and boldest colours, even when you’re outdoors in the sunshine or indoors under bright lights. Its matt surface has no mirror effect, so you can use it for longer without your eyes getting tired.
Settings --Easy to Manage

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. If I was being cynical I would say that this was a deliberate ploy by Microsoft, in the same way that Apple deliberately nobbled iTunes on the PC to encourage people to switch to the Mac. However, I am not cynical, so I won't suggest that.
In truth, the OS doesn't get in the way much, once you get down to actually using the PC in anger. There is a lot of undeserved negative press surrounding Windows 8, but for all its supposed faults, I actually find it fast and stable. If you truly hate Windows 8, there's nothing to stop you downgrading to Windows 7.
Incidently, if you are in to virtual machines, I can confirm that you can run OSX Mountain Lion on this laptop as a VMWare image and it works fine. Do a google and you will find all you need to know. The process is MUCH easier than it was even a year ago.
Wrapping up, a lovely laptop, and you shouldn't be put off by Windows 8. Its nothing to be afraid of!
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.
Graphics - The ATI HD7670M graphics card is mid-range at the moment, search for graphics card comparisons on Toms Hardware for charts and full details on that. I play shogun, quake live and counter strike generally which all run great. Shogun does not run at full max on everything, but is still very visual and epic. Do not expect to max out BF3 or Crysis 3, the fps will not be great, but if you look closely at prices for laptops with better cards, then you're starting to look at few hundred pounds extra. There are laptops advertised in the £900's with this card, not in the £600's! Take that money and spend it on a tower pc graphics card if you want to max the newest games out on high resolutions. Downside to the graphics is the switchable graphics where you have to tell the laptop to use the ATI card, or it defaults to power saving and doesn't use the extra graphics adapter.
Screen - Screens nice, non reflective, but appears bright and vibrant. Downside is that its not natively 1920 x 1080, so if you are connecting it to a HD TV, then you need to set up a profile, and switch to that when you dock in.
Battery - Batteries good, haven't measured it, but as you would expect from a new laptop.
Win 8 - The install on this machine has some useful, and some not so useful bloatware. You obviously have to understand that the new start menu is not going to be setup how you like, and you will have to play around to get it configured to your taste. I advise doing this first, then taking a Samsung recovery, so that you can restore back to your happily configured point.
Overall I really like the laptop, if you use it for sitting on your lap and browsing, you may find that the 17" and weight are a bit heavy so do consider if you really want a bigger laptop. If you want to use it for multiple purposes, where it won't struggle with graphics design, gaming, HD films etc then it's a great choice for the price.
Order this laptop you won't be disappointed!
