Samsung P560-54G

 

Although part of its audience is small-business users, this general-purpose laptop is in dire need of a design makeover.

Nvidia gaming graphics. Lightweight compared with its peers. Bright screen. Big hard drive.

Uninspiring design. Noisy mouse buttons. Poorly engineered keyboard. Poor battery life. Overpriced by $200.

Samsung P560-54G Review

 

If 3D abilities are important to you, the $1,299 Samsung P560-54G may be worth a look. Of course, you can configure other makers' business portables with discrete graphics and get similar performance for a similar price, along with a little more style....

Excellent keyboard, Very good 3D performance for the class, Bright 15.4-inch widescreen, Quiet operation

Bland design, Abysmal built-in speakers, LCD panel just 1280 x 800, No dual-pointing option

If you get this laptop and know what it is made to do...

Lap top is feature rich (very fast, mobile graphics card, lots of disk space) and comes with Vista/Business. It is small enough to take between the office and home and there have been no issues installing the work applications I needed. Very much like...

The mouse buttons on the touch pad are somewhat stiff. You'll probably want a good bag if you are going do a lot of travel

Storage size and advertised speed. This is the third Samsung laptop I have purchased and it is always my first choice. Would have been an overall rating of 10 were it not for software, as below.
