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.

Samsung RC512


Extras tend to count for a lot more if all the basics are in place. Would you care about sporty wheels and tinted windows on a two-cylinder Fiat? That may seem like a harsh analogy, but we think it's not too far from what you get with the Samsung...

Very good productivity, multimedia performance ; Above-average battery life ; Blu-ray drive ; USB 3.0 ports ; Support for WiMAX, WiDi

Potential issues with build quality ; Keyboard flexes too much

Our enthusiasm for this laptop's speed and battery life, as well as the premium feature mix for the price, is dampened by questionable build quality. Try it before you buy it.
