We wonder if Samsung's first £399 portable is too good to be true

Samsung R60 Plus review

 

The Samsung R60 Plus is the only laptop we've seen in the sub-£400 category to feature a dedicated graphics processor, making it the most suitable for 3D gaming.

The Samsung R60 Plus has some very attractive qualities: a huge hard drive, good processor performance and dedicated graphics card. At less than £400, this is a real contender for your attention.

Not everyone wants or needs the flashiest gizmos. Sure, you need technology that's up to the job. But just as a Chelsea tractor is overkill on the school run, the number-crunching might of today's fastest mobile processors is wasted on most everyday...

Nobody will guess what you paid for it. You can't get something for nothing, but a little cash can go a long way.

We first saw Samsung's R60 in our Laptop Price Test (Labs, Shopper 239). This latest model has an updated specification but costs around the same and remains a fine laptop.

The Samsung R60 shows that you don't need to spend a huge amount of money to get a decent laptop.

If your needs are modest and you have a budget to match, then the Samsung R60 is an ideal candidate. It may be a little lacking in performance, but it's still up to everyday tasks and its stylish design hides its budget roots. For the money, you can't...

If you just want a good machine without having to spend a fortune, then you can't go far wrong with the Samsung R60. It could do better at games, but other than that it's a pretty good all rounder with a bargain price tag

Low price ; Solid performance ; Sleek good looks

Graphics performance could be better ; Poor port selection

Conclusion Unless you're a massive gamer or need something that's as light as a feather, it's pretty hard to criticise the R60. It's a good performer, with fantastic looks and a great display. And with an asking price below £500 it's an absolute steal

Samsung R70 Intel Santa Rosa laptop

 

At first glance, Samsung's R70 looks similar to the Samsung R20, sporting a slimline design and polished black outer casing. Although the Samsung R70's shiny surface is undoubtedly stylish, it does smear, a feature we've noticed in some of Samsung's...

For a budget priced notebook, the Samsung R70 looks smart. Well featured due to its motion camera and large hard drive, the Samsung R70 is also easy to use and powerful. Battery life was good, and its WorldBench scores put it on par with many laptops...

A decent laptop for £400? It's a tough job, but some companies have made the price point their own, such as Acer with its fantastic Aspire range.

Very stylish design, Solid build quality, Lightweight

Processor not up to scratch, Poor connectivity

Solid choice for light mobile users
