Review Samsung RF511 Notebook

 

Quad all-rounder. Samsung responds to the high demand on the previous model, RF510, with a revision called RF511. Graphics and processor performance have been upgraded to a quad core and Fermi. The perfect all-rounder?

Samsung RF511 review

 

A distinctive look and feel, but not nearly enough to justify the price

Good office performance ; Good screen ; Nice design

Annoying pre-installed software ; A bit pricey ; Graphics performance

This 15.6in laptop can be used for gaming as well as tough multimedia tasks and day-to-day office work

 

Samsung's RF511 is relatively inexpensive, yet it packs a lot of speed and good features. For just over $1000 (if you shop around), you get an Intel Core i7 CPU as well as a Blu-ray drive. We think it's a great laptop for anyone who wants to be...

Plenty of speed, Great keyboard, Blu-ray drive

Screen too glossy, Build quality not great

Samsung RF511: a good all-purpose laptop

 

Need a laptop that can be used for entertainment purposes as well as boring old office work? If so, the Samsung RF511 is a good choice.

Samsung RF511 review

 

15” laptop with Intel Core i5 processor & USB 3.0. Samsung's latest laptop is pleasingly priced for...

Cost effective; Bluetooth 3.0; USB 3.0; functional design

Dull design; average build quality; WXGA panel; no keyboard backlighting

Physically, the RF511 is distinctly middle of the road. It's got the look of an office laptop, only with a conservative mesh of platinum coloured keys and borders. Put simply, it looks very old-fashioned, and could soon look even more so, once the...

Great features for the price

 

Overall it\'s a solid buy. The display was a bit of a disappointment. Especially since this laptop is a Samsung. My Samsung TV is amazing. I wish they would used the same technology for the laptop display. It only looks good if you view it straight on....
