Disadvantages: Feels flimsy, Samsung support not great
The Samsung R730 laptop is on a larger scale than standard Laptops with its 17 inch screen making it ideal for those requiring a larger display. In terms of looks, this laptop is eye catching with a glossy, red lid and a brushed steel effect interior. The steel colour extends to the mouse-pad, however the keyboard is a standard black.
Battery life is mediocre which is not ideal. The laptop has all the basic features that the average user would need including a webcam, HDMI & USB ports, media card reader and CD/DVD drive.
After several months of use, this laptop is still very responsive however the touchpad buttons are showing signs of wear with one being more pushed in than the other. I have also experienced problems with the display driver which causes the laptop to completely shut down which can be irritating.
Overall, this laptop looks great; sleek, slim and lightweight. The lightness of the machine causes it to feel a little flimsy and the functionality of the machine is not up to the standard I would expect from such a respected brand.
Summary: Average laptop which looks better than it performs.
