The good: The Samsung Series 7 Chronos stands out from the desktop replacement crowd by hiding high-end components, including a quad-core processor, inside a very a slim design.
The bad: Gaming performance could be better and the bottom panel can get very hot.
The bottom line: A high-end big-screen multimedia laptop that’s pretty portable (for a desktop replacement), the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is what we imagine a 17-inch ultrabook would look like.
