Samsung R580-JS02UK - 15.6in Laptop

 

Samsung produces a great performing Core i3-based system for less than 600 pounds.

Good performance ; Extensive connectivity ; Excellent value

Lid collects fingerprints ; Glossy palm rests ; Dreadful speakers

A combination of style, features, performance and value make the Samsung R580 a great, well-balanced all-rounder that will stand the test of time better than most.

Samsung R580 notebook

 

Say what you like about Apple, without the Cupertino company we'd probably still have been using beige computers until that other style-conscious company, Sony, entered the fray. So you want a laptop you can show off, that has a classy and attractive...

Good looks and plentiful features make this a good-value and impressive machine

The keyboard and sound are decidedly average, with the display not wowing us either

So you want a laptop you can show off, that has a classy and attractive look to it? But you don't want to sacrifice power or pay over the odds? Look no further. Samsung's hefty machine may not be feather-light, but it's solid, efficient and worth its...

Samsung R580 (Core i5) review

 

A very competitively priced laptop that boasts real power and great usability

Great performance ; Quality keyboard ; Connections ; Dedicated graphics

No Blu-ray drive ; Not a very high screen resolution

Although other laptops at this price offer slightly more, the build quality and components of the R580 make is a good choice none-the-less

Samsung R580 (Core i3) review

 

Powerful performance and great connectivity make this laptop very impressive

Great performance ; Good 3D power ; Connectivity ; Build quality

Glossy chassis attracts fingerprints ; Screen not as bright as some

This machine is one of the best laptops we have tested recently and has enough features and performance to keep the most demanding buyers happy

Samsung R580 review

 

We've long admired Samsung's ability to make attractive laptops, and the R580 is no exception. The glossy black lid has a subtle red glow, and the edges are softened by cut-aways and gentle curves. The keyboard panel uses the same red glow motif, but...

A well-rounded laptop that combines raw performance with the ability to play some games, while its decent keyboard, touchpad and display make it a joy to use.

Samsung R580 review

 

It may look big and bulky, but the Samsung R580 16in laptop is surprisingly light.

With its abundant speed and good build quality, we are happy to recommend the Samsung R580 if you're after a desktop replacement notebook. It has four USB 2.0 ports (one is also an eSATA port), an ExpressCard/34 slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet,...

Samsung R580 Notebook

 

For those who don't want black here I am looking at a subtle shade of red (dark wine) colour that will pass for black in poor light but still offer that something different in decent light, best of all the fingermarks don't show as they do with shiny...

The processor is an Intel Core i3 330m 2.13GHz. It has four GB of RAM. nVIDIA external graphics with 512MB RAM. The screen has a built in 1.3MP web cam. The hard disc is split into two both ‘C’ and ‘D’ being 255GB in size

Samsung R580 notebook

 

This entry level machine punches well above its weight range

Overall features are more than one would expect from a entry level notebook.

Slightly too large for regular travel.

Samsung R580 Laptop

 

Samsung's tradition of producing excellent technology at excellent prices continues with their R580 laptop…….

The Samsung R580 is an impressive addition to an already strong line-up of laptops and notebooks. Ticking plenty of boxes in terms of performance, the R580 is also an attractive-looking beast – and adaptable, too. An excellent product for its price...

Samsung R580 review

 

The Samsung R580 is a luxurious and powerful 15in-screen laptop, sporting Intel Core i3 processor and new nVidia graphics, and available for less than £600.

If you’re on tighter budget than the circa-£600 retail price of the Samsung R580, and don't plan to play many computer games, look for something like the £499 Samsung R530. But if you do need better graphics potential, or just appreciate the classier...
