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...

Cost effective; Bluetooth 3.0; USB 3.0; functional design

Samsung RF511: a good all-purpose laptop

 

This 15.6in laptop can be used for gaming as well as tough multimedia tasks and day-to-day office work

Plenty of speed ; Great keyboard ; Blu-ray drive

Screen too glossy ; Build quality not great

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
