Not an Ultrabook, but a big, powerful laptop

Samsung Series 3 NP355V5C review


Samsung proves mobile gaming is possible on a budget, even if desktop performance isn't quite so impressive

Samsung has fitted a pair of stereo speakers above the keyboard tray, but they’re best described as functional. The mid-range is clear, but the high-end sounds sharp and there isn’t much bass, and we still recommend headphones for anything more...

A very good laptop made by a company which I have heard recommended by a laptop repair shop. Includes a recovery disc. Breezes through a stress test - can run test and work normally noticing no difference. Appereance

Outdated graphics card driver - results in burnintest 2d graphics fail until updated. Samsung should supply latest driver as standard. Not a reason to suggest this is a bad product, just something to watch out for and something Samsung should really do...

Everything worked really well right from the start. The Sony Vaio which this machine replaced had been cluttered with an enormous amount of "free" software which kept popping up everywhere - this machine is much more uncluttered. I bought this for my...

I love it, great value and just what I wanted, the spec was great value for money. I am not a gamer so cannot comment on that but for everything else great.

- Great Value for Money. - CPU/GPU can be upgraded with a quicker A8/A10 unit in the future.

Pre-loaded with Norton and some Samsung bloat.

* A laptop that would have cost 3-4 times as much 2-3 years ago. * Plays a lot of games you wouldn't expect it to play. * Performs way better than the old tower system I still have in my back bedroom.

15" widescreen screen seems very small after the 17" one on my old laptop.
