Review Samsung RV511-S02 Notebook

 

Goodbye Glare-Type Samsung is shying away from glare-type screens and has equipped this well-rounded office notebook with a matte (and still bright) display. Check out the "Display" section of the review to see how the matte screen differs from a...

Samsung RV511-AO1

 

A stylish 15-inch notebook, the Samsung RV511 delivers long battery life and won't break the bank.

All in all, the $549 Samsung RV511-A01 offers a great blend of features, style, and performance for its low price. The laptop has plenty of multitasking power and has enough staying power to work and play for nearly 5 hours on a charge. We also like...

Samsung A01 review: Samsung A01

 

Sleek, curved design; large keyboard; HD screen; Bluetooth.

Thicker chassis; dual-core Atom performance is lackluster; no HDMI.

The curved, eye-catching Samsung NF310 is a bold 10-inch Netbook with some premium features for its price, but in the end it's not different enough to break out of the pack.

Samsung RV511-A01

 

If you don't need your budget laptop to make a fashion statement, the Samsung RV511-A01, available at Best Buy for $599.99 (list), may fit the bill. What it lacks in aesthetics it makes up with its expanded keyboard, and its performance, which is on...

Big display. Keyboard includes ten-key number pad. HDMI port

Unexciting design

The Samsung RV511-A01 budget laptop may not be much to look at, but it offers decent performance and a few interesting features for the price.

Samsung RV511 review

 

Everyone likes to find a bargain, not least in the ever-burgeoning laptop market.

The Samsung RV511 is a well specified laptop that provides plenty of the features and certainly most of the performance you can expect of any laptop under £1000. Build quality is also fairly solid, if a bit chunky and plasticky feeling. It’s a...

Samsung RV511 review

 

This well-specified notebook is equipped with the latest Intel Core i3-380M processor, running at 2.53GHz, and has a whopping 6GB of RAM. It also has a 640GB hard disk, which is twice the size of most laptops' disks. The fast processor, extra RAM and...

Impressive core components and performance to match, but its dedicated graphics card doesn't add enough value to warrant its high price.

Recertified Deal

 

You won't find a higher quality laptop for this price. Samsung always makes good stuff.

This is the absolute best deal for the price ; Comes with 4GB Ram onboard but ships with a free 2GB stick and now I'm running 6GB for free ; Windows Experience Index ; Processor: High 6's ; RAM: High 6's ; Gaming Graphics: Lower 5's

Only problem I have is the bloatware. Just remove ALL of it and install drivers from Windows update. The keyboard arrows and right shift aren't ideal but usable
