Samsung R590

 

Samsung's latest 15-inch laptop ticks all the right boxes.

Powerful ; Feature-rich ; Great value

Glossy all over ; Mediocre battery life ; Poor touchpad positioning

A powerful, flexible and good-looking laptop, the R590 can service all your computing needs without breaking the bank.

Samsung R590-JS02AU 15.6in notebook

 

Samsung R590-JS02AU review: A solid Samsung notebook that offers good performance

Good build quality, good performance, bright screen

Poor touchpad buttons, palm rest is too smooth, too thick and cumbersome to travel with regularly, gets warm if you use it on your lap

Samsung's R590 is an attractive and solidly built 15.6in notebook. It's too cumbersome to be carried around every day, but it does make for a great desktop PC replacement. You can use it for everyday office work, as well as tougher tasks such as video...

Review Samsung NP-R590 Notebook

 

Colorful. Subsequent to the red R580, Samsung now presents the blue version of its 15.6 inch multimedia notebook, which isn't only strong due to Core i5-450M and GeForce GT330M, but can also score with good equipment including an integrated BluRay...

Good performance, Elegant case, BluRay drive, Silent mode, The dark blue case has a very elegant design

Sensitive surfaces, Contrast poor display, Moderate sound, A contrast richer display with better viewing angles

Samsung R590

 

Decent expandability and good performance.

The usual weedy speakersCheap feeling constructionSeemingly attracts more fingerprints than usualNo Optimus technology.

The Samsung R590 is a decent performer in the mid-level space. We'd have preferred a more attractive screen, a less cheap-looking exterior and Optimus-enabled technology, but ultimately it does well for the price.

Samsung R590

 

The R590 is a powerful notebook aimed at users who want a 15-incher that delivers. We take a look at what this $1400 model brings to the table.

Attractive design; Noteworthy specifications; Multitude of ports

Reflective screen; Glossy finish prone to fingerprints; Touchpad positioning; Mediocre sound quality from speakers

Samsung R590-JS02UK

 

Previous good experience of Samsung products led me to choose this product and I was not disappointed. The design, weight and performance are all excellent and the battery life good considering the I5 processor. The keyboard is very good and overall...

The Windows 7 Operating System is very resource hungry and unfortunately consumes many of the advantages of the powerful processor and RAM. I would recommend a dual boot system using Ubuntu which uses fewer system resources and maximises the potential...
