Little brother. Powerful hardware within a more compact case: The 15.6-inch Samsung Series 7 Chronos 770Z5E-S01DE is equipped with a fast AMD Radeon HD 8870M graphics card, a matte Full HD display and a premium-quality metal case. We are putting the $1500-laptop through its paces.

Felix, do you have any information on the touchscreen version of this laptop?

"Even some casual gaming was possible [...] Still, this is not a gamer's device."

The 8870M is ranked in the middle of your Class 1 (!!!) graphics card comparison tree, right below 670M, a chip that gets very high gaming performance appraisals in many of your reviews! Please don't tell me Class 1 isn't a gaming class or that 670M is a great gaming card when they both virtually have the same performance.

Who in his right mind would buy a laptop with so much GPU power if he wasn't a GAMER?!

I'll just use all this GPU power to edit some word documents. /s

How does this thing get such amazing battery life? The MSI GT60, for example, has very similar hardware and battery capacity, yet gets half the battery life.

There must be a typo in here somewhere. SOMEWHERE.

The HD 8870M is better than the 660M, and far better than the GTX 555M and 540M, both advertised as gaming cards.

YET 10 HOURS? RIDICULOUS! Did they use some crazy magic to get such good performance and battery life? Why aren't any other manufacturers doing it? Even for NoteBookCheck, the greatest notebook review site (screen gamut measuring, detailed performance and battery testing), it is still completely unexplained how this unpopular laptop has absolutely destroyed the status quo.

I play full HD, AA2X, all settings high Farcry and Bioshock infinite, and this is not (also) a game machine ??? -_-'
I simply love my 770z5e, and I've change the HDD with a Samsung 840 pro 256GB and it simply fly !!!
This is the best notebook around today.

If the battery life is accurate, this is one awesome laptop. Fantastic GPU performance, excellent screen, great build quality - what's not to like?

Yeah, can anyone explain this? It's mind boggling. Also, the GT60 is more than twice as thick.

Such a shame about the 5400rpm. Otherwise, I'm sold

The reason for the good battery life is that it's using the Intel HD 4000. Like Nvidia's Optimus, AMD has switchable graphics cards and the 8870 is not in use to get the battery life's recorded in this review. Even then, the battery life is spectacular above pretty much every other laptop, getting around 11 hours non Wifi use and around 6 hours of streaming a HD movie. This can be credited to the 91Whr battery in the Chronos, comparable to the 95Whr one in the 15" rMBP. Adding a SSD in also increases the battery life by an hour or so.

I still maintain that these specs are almost identical to the MSI GT60 laptop, which has a 87Wh battery, intel 3630QM CPU, and nvidia Optimus switchable graphics with a GT 670M/Intel HD 4000, which is just a tiny bit faster than the 8870. It gets 4.5 hrs of battery life. It's also somehow more than twice as thick.
