Samsung R510 15.4in Notebook

 

Better than its recent predecessor in every way, but good enough?

The rest of the keyboard doesn't let things down either. The surface of the keys is pleasant and won't pick up finger-prints. Layout is excellent, with the Ctrl key on the outside of left-Fn, a full-size Enter key and a dedicated set of Delete to End...

It's fairly bulky, but, with a 15.4-inch screen and decent performance, the stylish and relatively inexpensive Samsung R510 is well worth a look, whether you're seeking a laptop for business or leisure use

Stylish looks ; Decent performance ; Affordable ; Integrated webcam

Short on USB ports ; Relatively bulky and heavy

Samsung doesn't make a claim for the life of the six-cell li-ion battery. To test it, we fully charged the battery and chose the 'power saver' plan. Then we played DVDs continuously until the laptop expired, which turned out to be after 2 hours and 34...

Samsung's new R510 is an updated version of the model we saw seven months ago in What's New, Shopper 249.

The Samsung R510 lasted for just over four hours in our MobileMark 2007 battery test, which will last you through a good train journey, even with the inevitable delays.

The Samsung R510 is a decent laptop with amazing battery life, but if you’re prepared to take a minor hit on performance, you could get the Acer Aspire 5920 for significantly less outlay.

Samsung NP-R510

 

The Samsung R510 is an able performer with a classy looking design. It comes with a healthy set of features, for the asking price.

Build quality ; HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet ; Good screen brightness

Price

The Samsung NP-R510 is an able performer with a WorldBench score of 81. Is fairly similar in hardware configuration to the Dell Inspiron 15 and our winner, the Acer Aspire 5738. It's a budget laptop with good performance.

If you're looking for a laptop that you can use for long periods away from the mains, then look no further than this indefatigable Samsung R510.

Just to confuse people there are two types of Samsung R510 available to the consumer at the moment: a pre Centrino 2 model, which even more confusingly comes with the correct Centrino 2 chipset but without ...

A well priced and well featured mid-range notebook ideal for the non-gaming home user or even for the small office, but it's at a price point with a lot of competition. Some of that competition offers even more features, so you might be better served...

Hot on the heels of Samsung's sub-£2kg portable, the Q210 (web id: 215352), comes yet another in its revamped lineup. This time, however, there's a different target market in mind and this, the R510, boasts an altogether more affordable price point.

A generous specification and preternaturally good looks make the Samsung R510 a solid budget buy.
