Samsung RV520 review


We've long praised Samsung for its stylish laptop designs, and the RV520 - the 15in cousin of the RV720 - is no exception. It has a smart matt silver case with a pinstripe texture on its two-tone lid and a glossy black keyboard panel. Most of its edges...

Samsung RV520-W01


The Samsung RV520-W01 is battery efficient and equipped with some cutting edge wireless features, but it'll take a better design to unseat the best budget laptops.

Very good battery life. WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX wireless technologies built-in. One of the lightest 15-inch laptops. Priced reasonably. Numeric keypad included.

Noisy mouse clicks. Design is falling behind the times.
