Review Samsung P580 Pro Penfield Notebook


Silent office. This 15.6-inch notebook from Samsung sets out to be the perfect office companion, and one that you can count on. There is no energy-guzzling graphics card, and its tried and tested 'silent mode' makes typing quiet as a whisper. But is it...

Very quiet and cool, Keys give good tactile feedback, Matt, durable surfaces, Docking port and eSATA, Low energy consumption, Fast hard drive, Good performance, A very good keyboard for people who have to type a lot. A separate external keyboard is...

Poor screen brightness, Weak contrast ratio, Battery life only adequate, Weak, thin sound from the speakers

Review: Samsung's P580 Notebook


The CRN Test Center examines Samsung's P580 notebook for business.

However, overall, Samsung's design, attention to detail in its engineering, performance and the wonderful look and feel make the P580 notebook a great one, and one we recommend.

Samsung P580 laptop review


Samsung P580 laptop has been designed to be the perfect ‘trusted business partners' for individuals who need the reassurance and performance of a powerful desktop PC, packaged in a highly durable, tactile, sleek and lightweight chassis that makes...

The 15.6in, 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution screen of Samsung P580 laptop was bright and clear – and importantly blessed with a matte, anti-glare finish – and ergonomics seemed good. Samsung P580’s keyboard boasts the isolated design that is currently...

Samsung P580


This sleek-looking business laptop is very comfortable to work with but its battery life and processor are rather poor for the price.

Samsung P580 review


At 35mm thick, it's a chunky beast. And we didn't believe our scales readout of 2.48kg at first either – it actually feels heavier in the hand. Yet the Samsung P580 packs some features into its generous frame that may prove attractive to business buyers.

The Samsung P580 is an old-fashioned laptop hiding an old-school legacy port, sporting the latest Intel and nVidia silicon inside. Unfortunately mobile workers may also balk at the old-time runtime of little over three hours too. It’s a chunky...

Samsung P580 business laptop review


Samsung P580 business laptop review,Not the most attractive business machine, but it's robust and performs well, technology news from Spencer Dalziel at

Decent performance; HDMI output; robust design; matte display minimises reflections; XP downgrade CD

32-bit Windows; ugly chassis; small touchpad

The P580 is a well-made, portable business laptop that is reasonably priced. The wow factor has to be its graphics handling and HDMI out, but it is not going to win awards for looks.

Samsung - P580


The Samsung P580 is a business grade laptop that isn't going to win any prizes for looking good or showing off fancy features. But it is a solid performer. The 15.6-inch screen delivers 1366 x ...

The Samsung P580 is a decent notebook, with a robust design and good keyboard. The battery life probably isn't good enough for the frequent traveller, but if your notebook resides mainly on your desk it should be OK.

Consumer review by: kw (



I bought this as a traveling, do everything PC for business, it's perfect in that role. The screen isn't the best for movies nor games (it's particularly bright or contrasty) but adequate for both. Speakers sound ok too, pointing up just below the LCD....
