Review Samsung RC510-S01DE Notebook


Elegant office. If you're looking for a good-looking laptop with office qualities, you'll likely find one in the RC510. A matt TFT is brought together with feedback-strong input devices. Moreover: it's economic, quiet and cool – only to name a few...

Keyboard layout, Large & fast touchpad, Low system noise & Silent Mode, Low power consumption, Matt display, Good performance, Practical Samsung tools, Recovery data carriers, A good keyboard combined with a matt TFT and very low system noise

Partly bendable chassis, Low contrast, Few interfaces, Poor 3D performance, An eSATA port or USB 3.0 would be perfect for movie fans. Quiet touchpad keys equipped with a larger key drop

Samsung RC510 Review


The RC510 is a pretty decent package for the common user. It's certainly not standout in terms of its features or specifications, but has neat looks with its glossy, clean lines.Alternatives like Dell's Inspiron 15 and Acer's TimelineX range come to...

Well built with rigid lines, Attractive looking, Good CPU

Battery life could have been better, Definitely not for anyone wanting to play recent games, RAM is so cheap, why not 4 GB

Samsung RC510 review


Nvidia's Optimus boosts this well-priced 15-incher

Bright screen ; Lovely chiclet keyboard ; Core i3 power ; Decent graphics performance ; Classy design

Average battery life ; Low resolution screen ; Heavyweight construction

The 15-inch Samsung RC510-S03UK laptop shows off exactly what Intel's Core i3 performance beast of a chip is capable of. It's also reasonably priced – you can currently find one for around £580.

Samsung RC510 review


A great design, excellent keyboard and beautiful screen, but out-dated components make the RC510 hard to recommend.

Overall, we can’t help but feel slightly disappointed with the RC510. It might have a great design and excellent quality screen, but more powerful Sandy Bridge-powered laptops are available for similar money. Had the RC510 been released last year, we...

Samsung Notebook RC510


No shiny black, is the first thing most will notice about this latest Notebook from Samsung, if only there was not a reflective screen nothing would be shiny at all. So what does the RC510 have to offer once you start it up?

The first link below has the same system available for £534.99 and offers free delivery

Samsung RC510-S03UK


Bright screen and quick graphics card. Numeric pad is a bonus. Finish is vey good and Samsung customer support is really good

Separated key board takes a bit of getting used to and some of the function indicators are a bit small (arrow keys). Speakers are a bit tinny but sound quality is good through head/ ear phones
