Review: Samsung R50

 

Going for a traditional tried-and-tested design, the Samsung R50 focuses on performanance and features rather than innovation.

Plays DVDs and multimedia files without bootup; good-quality build; slim; good battery life

Screen not bright enough; weak performance

The Samsung R50's traditional understated design goes well with a professional image. However, despite the inclusion of the dedicated graphics card, the weak performance of the machine limits its use to light computing work.

Good performance notebook

 

Bought this at COMEX 05. Comes with great specs, nice screen. But noticed one dead pixel after just one week of usage. AV Snow function is good, but unstable at times. Good sound quality and clear graphics. Overall a good buy!

"Good desktop replacement"

 

Bought this at COMEX with 1GB RAM, and it rox. The display is nice, playing 3D games is as good as playing on a desktop, thanks to the 128MB RAM on the ATI card, plus the 3D SOUND is fantastic. On the downside it's pretty heavy to lug around at 2.8kg....
