Samsung RC512-S02


The Samsung RC512-S02 ($1,199.99 list at Best Buy) desktop replacement laptop targets power user with its premium features and parts. It includes a Blu-ray drive, plenty of storage, and USB 3.0 ports. From a performance standpoint, there's nothing more...

Trendy aluminum design. Powerful quad core processor. Switchable graphics with the Nvidia GeForce GT 525M. Two USB 3.0 ports. WiMax and WiDi 2 preloaded. 6GB of memory. Blu-ray equipped

Lacks bigger battery option. 1,366-by-768 resolution is lame

The Samsung RC512-S02 is a powerful desktop replacement geared toward multimedia enthusiasts, but one that could sure use a bigger battery option.
