Samsung RC710 review


The 17.3-inch Samsung RC710 offers a decent processor, screen and keyboard, but its boring design and sub-par gaming performance limit its appeal as an all-round entertainment laptop.

Comfortable keyboard ; Bright screen ; Decent performance

Not a good option for gaming ; Poor battery life ; Dull design

The Samsung RC710 is pretty average. It offers a good screen and keyboard, and its processor is quite fast. But its design is boring and its gaming performance is fairly poor, which limits its appeal as an all-round entertainment machine.

Samsung RC710-S01UK


Runs fast - boots up quickly. Large clear screen. Good keyboard. Light for size of screen (in my opinion). It's great to be able to stream iPlayer video without having to download files first. The graphics are sharp. I'm very pleased with this machine
