Samsung Series 3 Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the Samsung Series 3. Now, if you remember way back at CES 2011, everyone was blown away by Samsung Series 9 laptops. Those are super thin, super high-end, super fancy 13-inch and later 11-inch laptops but they were very expensive. The Series 3 is kind of a more budget-minded version of that. It takes some of the same design queues and knocked it down to mostly plastic. It had something [unk] is not quite as good but for a lot less expensive at the same time. Now, this version of the Series 3, the first one, you can go out and buy it. It's an 11-inch and instead of that AMD E350 CPU you see in a lot of the 11-inch ultraportables, this actually has an Intel Core i3 which gives it better performance. Apart from that, you're gonna see a lot of similarities with those AMD 11-inch systems that you see everywhere like the HP dm1. It has got the same 11-inch 1366x768 screen. It got a nice flat key keyboard, a fairly large touchpad and all the systems are, you know, lightweight and pretty well-made. They're definitely a step up from these netbooks that were popular a couple of years ago with mostly a 10-inch screen. These are a little bit more expensive but a little bit more powerful and much easier to use as your day to day laptop. We definitely like the processing power from the Core i3 in this. Battery life? Well, wasn't that great. We got about 3 hours but our battery life test is very tough. You'd probably get a little bit more just using it casually for web surfing and e-mail and things like that. Now, this 11-inch Series 3 is $599 which seemed a little bit cheaper at some places. But, that is almost into regular laptop territory and certainly more expensive than a lot of the other 11-inch ultraportables that we've seen. So, you have to decide if that extra power is worth it to you. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Samsung Series 3.
Although its picture quality can't quite live up to the high price, the Samsung UNB7000 series is a technological and design tour de force.
The well-designed, ultraportable Averatec 1000 has neither the endless battery life nor the high price of the competition.
With the Pavilion dv5000z series, HP delivers a well-designed and versatile multimedia laptop that starts at a highly affordable price point.
Although its picture quality falls short of some midrange TVs, the Samsung UNF6300's combination of high-end features and design for a midrange price will win plenty of converts.
Although priced well for a large 3D TV, the Sharp LC-LE745U series can't muster the 2D picture quality to earn our recommendation as a good value.
Slickly-designed and amply featured, the Samsung QX410 looks and plays the part of a more expensive high-end laptop, at a price that's a solid value.
Despite a couple of design glitches and restrictions, the Samsung SCH-A990 is a high-end multimedia phone that boasts a sharp, 3.2-megapixel camera and good call quality.
Sharp design and excellent battery life, plus a surprisingly affordable price, make the 15-inch Asus K53E a smart alternative to more-expensive midsize laptops.
Although we dinged its predecessor because of its inflated price tag, the Samsung S2 Portable hard drive earns high marks and our recommendation for being reasonably priced, having fast file-transfer speed, and for having a generous three-year warranty.
Although it delivers fine picture quality, except for a few flaws, the ultrathin Samsung UNB6000 series will appeal mainly to style seekers who don't mind spending more money.
