Reliable high quality Laptop
Member Name: himrule
Advantages: Lasts well, good performance, good battery life, reliable Wifi, HDMI slot
When I joined Marjon university college a few years I was told I was to be given a free laptop and to my surprise it was a Samsung (I was expecting a 'lesser' make) P510 and I've not looked back since.
It came with Windows Vista and Microsoft Office pre-installed and the specification listed above. Windows Vista runs on the machine perfectly, so does Office and its very easy to use.
A big plus is the HDMI slot on the side which means I can connect it to my TV with ease and watch videos in High defenition
The Wifi is very reliable and picks up the signal from my wireless router further away than friend's Laptops.
I have to disagree with the other reviewer and say the laptop battery is very good and can last for 3-4hours depending on what you are doing. Also having the power mode as 'Power Saver' only gives a minor adjustment to performance but adds at least 50% to the battery life.
I've had the laptop for over 3 years now and it is still going strong, amazing really considering I use it every day and battery still works like new. If you want you can also purchase extra batteries off eBay for as cheap as £10!
I have a habit of dropping things and I've dropped the laptop 5-10 (off the bed, out of car doors etc) and it still works fine so its a well built machine.
So I would definitely recommend Samsung Laptops!
Summary: A great laptop that does all I need and more, highly recommended
