Found 19th Dec 2008
PC Pro Labs winner and current A-Lister for budget laptop - ringing endorsements indeed. Looks to be significantly cheaper than can be found anywhere else - but do correct me if I'm wrong (I'm sure you will!).…tml

Ebuyer blurb says:

Its stunning design is complemented by a range of high performance features and an ultra sharp 17 widescreen display that turns even the most demanding and visually intensive tasks into a real pleasure. Weighing just 3.18 kg, the R700 is also one of the lightest 17 notebooks in its class. So, with its tremendous balance of price, performance and portability, the Samsung R700 is the perfect choice for everyone.

budget laptop

nearly £500

Low spec, big bucks. no deal here.

have to say this is another one of those very average machine where you are paying way over the odds just becuase it has a 17" screen. Why would you not buy this 17" machine…op- which has a spec much better than this and is over £100 cheaper.

i do not know about other people but spec is far more important to me than a machine that has some glossy case and a red stripe on the front of it.
