Samsung wanted to give you real desktop power on the go with the Series 7 Chronos, and while its performance is top notch, it's also pretty heavy. TechRadar says the new Chronos is "perfect for power-hungry users" and that it will "handle pretty much anything you throw at it." The power-driven laptop also gives you a 1080p resolution display whose "panel quality is a cut above," according to Trusted Reviews. You'd think a laptop with this much power and high resolution display would suffer from poor battery life, but Expert Reviews says it has "huge battery life," lasting "9 hours ... so you should get a full day's work out of it." The main issue with the new Chronos is its weight, clocking in at 5.4 pounds, which has TechRadar saying you "wouldn't want it in your bag all day." The Series 7 serves as solid option for those who need a desktop replacement, but for most users, a lighter and more mobile laptop would be a better option.
