Review Samsung P530 Pro Notebook


Feng-Shui. Who needs a graphic card, Bluetooth or ExpressCard when typing? Ergonomics and display, thats what its all about! The Pro Pitts focuses on the essentials and cuts quite a figure in doing so.

Hard-wearing haptic, Good keyboard, Quiet and cool, Matt LCD, Good LCD brightness, Low current consumption, Feng-Shui.  More fun at work by doing away with unnecessary parts and connections

Limited battery life, Small viewing angles, Few connections, A battery with more capacity would have worked well with the matt, and well-lit display

Samsung P530 review


The 15.6-inch Samsung P530 is an affordable business laptop with a fair amount of grunt. It has a great keyboard and screen, but it's let down a little by its relatively poor battery life.

Good performance for the price ; Comfortable keyboard ; Bright screen ; Sturdy build quality ; Reasonable price tag

Limited range of ports ; Below-average battery life

The Samsung P530 is a decent enough business laptop. The screen and keyboard are excellent and the processor has a fair bit of grunt, especially considering the laptop's reasonable asking price. On the other hand, its short battery life means it's more...

Samsung P530 review


The Samsung P530 is Samsung's business notebook, so it's not festooned with unnecessary illuminations or tarted up with bling.

While its ergonomics are certainly to the credit of the Samsung P530, you may be swayed by the higher specification of something like Mesh's Dynamo i3V which also happens to cost more than £100 less.
