Samsung R519


Samsung's R519 brings entry-level pricing and sensibilities to the market in a notebook that won't wow anybody, or send them broke either.

Decent keyboard, Low asking price, Simple style

Ordinary style, Heavy, Poor battery life

A no-frills machine offering truly impressive value for money

Noisy keyboard ; Only 2GB of RAM

Samsung R519 notebook review


With prices for laptops tumbling year on year, it's now easy to get a perfectly good machine for the price of a high-end netbook. Samsung's R519 is a great example of this, and although you won't be able to play games, it could be the ideal laptop if...

Well-made, comfortable keyboard, outstanding value

Painfully dull design, location of all the ports

It’s not the quickest machine, but few laptops offer better value than the Samsung R519, costing less money than the average smartphone

Samsung R519 review


As well as notable netbooks and popular ultraportables, Samsung has also successfully staked out the competitive ground of entry-level full-size laptops.

Simple but reasonably quick and solid, the Samsung R519 is a sound choice as a cheap no-frills 15in laptop, and one offering great value for money.

Samsung R519


$839 no way! I purchased this last week from MLN for the wonderful price of $578. This is probably the best buy around at the moment considering that netbooks are either this price or only $100 cheaper for absolutely terrible stats comparatively. With...

Price from MLN!!! Performance, Windows 7, Perfect study laptop

Price from anywhere else, Speakers, Samsung programs

So far So Good!


I like it! I have to admit I was a bit disappointed that it is somewhat lacking in style and shine (it is matt black), however after searching for a good day for an alternative with the same spec and the same price tag, I soon realised that there is...
