Samsung 550P7C – Intro, Design, Build and Connectivity

We’ve been looking at a lot of sleek, slim and light laptops recently, from Ultrabooks like the featherweight Toshiba Portege Z930 to Sleekbooks like the AMD-based HP Envy 6-1006ea. What we haven’t seen much of is large desktop replacement laptops. High time then to check out this 17-inch Samsung Series 5 550P7C, a beast of a portable machine with the specs to match.Check out our picks of the Best laptops.Intro
So what does this particular 550P model offer? Though the Series 5 is generally Samsung’s ‘low-end’ range, with the Series 7 and Series 9 taking top spots, on paper the 550P7C is quite impressive.

Design
There’s no denying that this laptop is big and unapologetically bulky at 32mm thick, but no more so than your average 17in desktop replacement. It weighs a considerable 3kg too.

Build Quality
While 17-inch machines rarely feel as solid as their smaller 15-inch and 13-inch cousins, the Samsung Series 5 550P7C is merely average when it comes to build quality. The lid is just fine, with no more than the necessary flex. However, there’s the occasional hint of creak from the inside panels and a bit more give to the left of the keyboard than we would like.

Connectivity
Connections on the Samsung 550P7C are pretty standard for a large multimedia laptop. On the left you’ll find Gigabit Ethernet, VGA and HDMI for video, twin USB 3.0 ports, plus headphone and microphone jacks.
