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.

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...

Samsung R60 Laptop

 

Easy to use. Good quality and does exactly what it says on the box. Good size screen and very quick to power up.

A bit confusing on initial set up as you have to back up files on a second partition. If you don't know computer terms you would struggle. Other than that no real issues

Samsung R60 Laptop

 

Nice clear screen. Good fast processor. Seems to be very reliable. User friendly. Nice sized keyboard that makes typing easy. Touchpad works very well, is very easy to scroll.

Outer casing looks very nice but shows up to many fingerprints
