With its stylish casing, the Samsung Series 7 Ultra 730U3E-S04DE looks like a compelling ultrabook. It has convincing slim aluminum design, which offers rigidness and solid build quality. There are also decent connectivity options, such as USB 3.0 ports. Upgrades and routine maintenance tasks are agreeably straightforward, thanks to the removable base plate.
The 1080p resolution used on the 13.3” display is in line with current trend in the market. The matte panel pays off during outdoor use and combined with the acceptable brightness, the ultrabook can be comfortably used in bright environments. The 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 dual core processor and 6GB of DDR3 RAM ensure good performance for typical productivity tasks.
The ultrabook relies solely on SSD, but at 256GB some users may find that they run out of usable space quickly. The AMD Radeon HD 8550M GPU won’t convince dedicated gamers as newer titles can be rendered smoothly only in lowest settings.
