Samsung RF511 review

 

A distinctive look and feel, but not nearly enough to justify the price

Good office performance ; Good screen ; Nice design

Annoying pre-installed software ; A bit pricey ; Graphics performance

Samsung RF511 review

 

15” laptop with Intel Core i5 processor & USB 3.0. Samsung's latest laptop is pleasingly priced for...

Samsung RF511: a good all-purpose laptop

Review Samsung RF511 Notebook

 

Quad all-rounder. Samsung responds to the high demand on the previous model, RF510, with a revision called RF511. Graphics and processor performance have been upgraded to a quad core and Fermi. The perfect all-rounder?

I brought this for my sister at uni as her one died. So far she is happy with it and it does no little and no less than what she needs.

No bad points as far as she has said
