    They don't really meet the criteria here of good batteries and good screens, that particular one has 3 hours battery life and in their review notebookcheck said of this laptop: "Finally, the low contrast display is the biggest disappointment with this notebook."

    Review Samsung Series 5 550P7C-S02DE Notebook - Notebookcheck.net Reviews

    Notebookcheck do measure and rate the screens of every laptop they review, so going through their reviews for 17" models is a good start - although do bear in mind that screen quality can vary dramatically between options so don't expect the unreviewed screens to be similar to the reviewed model. They also test battery life but manufacturer quotes are usually fairly accurate now.
