Review Samsung Series 6 600B5B-S01DE Notebook

 

Duracase 2.0. Samsung promises perfect reliability with its busin

Good computing power; High brightness; Non-glare display; USB 3.0; Many security features

Samsung NP600B5B-S01UK review

A good business-oriented laptop, but not as suitable for most home users

Samsung 600B5B review

 

Samsung isn't well known for its business laptops. Can the company's latest model, the 600B5B, convince businesses to turn away from their ThinkPads and ProBooks? Tom Morgan takes a look in our review.

The Samsung 600B5B is fairly niche, even for a business laptop, but it's also one of the least expensive laptops with a business-certified graphics card. The 600B5B could be ideal for the user that needs 3D performance that can’t be provided by...
