In the series of my notebook review I have taken a super model laptop from Samsung, and it is highly configured and featured Samsung P560. Samsung have a tough competition with reputed brand like Apple, Dell, Sony, HP and Acer and as a present time there are time for high configured full featured notebook which can provide better speed and accessibility with latest operating system like Vista and Macintosh.
If we have a look on available configuration on laptop since the release of Vista than it has been extremely changed in terms of processing speed, available memory, graphics capacity and extra features. First of all the rocking product was from apple and then it keeps going on with all other brands. Now the latest model is from Samsung with whooping configuration and bundled features. I will discuss here about brief description of this model and accessibility.
First of all I always used to start with processor, of-course the mind of computing machine, and this model has multi core( dual core processor) Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 with clock speed of 2.26 GHz, and the front size bus size is 1066 MHz, supports modern computing with 64 bit compatible features. Dual core processor with 2 or more GHz of speed is good enough to run smoothly about all applications and game without having any trouble, if you have a better graphics card also than it will provide more speed and run that very easily.
Second thing that should be consider is its memory size in both terms, RAM and ROM. RAM is more important with processor and graphics to provide better speed and accessibility so that in latest computing world a fast speed RAM required with better capacity and considering this laptop it has 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM with extremely good speed of 1066 MHz, generally we can't see this type of speed RAM in DDR2 technology, but it is possible in DDR3 technology and it is a modern concept to keep DDR3 RAM or graphics to get better solutions for latest gaming world. This RAM can also be extended up to 4GB of capacity, and if you are planning to run 64 bit operating system and applications than it will be better to keep 4 GB of RAM with better graphics card.
The other storage media which is common in terms of capacity in maximum laptops that is its hard disk drive and there is no special in it having serial ATA technology with 250GB of storage capacity. I have 250GB hard disk and I had never felt any lack of space, so I think it has sufficient capacity, or if you wants more space than it will be better to keep external USB hard disk drive. Keeping external hard drive make our DATA secure if that drive is SSD than it will be more reliable but you have to pay more for that. SSD is a latest technology and it is costlier now a days.
Now my favorite feature in about all laptop that is graphics card and the capacity of graphics card in this laptop is satisfactory with Intel GMA X4500, 128MB dedicated graphics memory and some shared memory also. This graphics card is a upgraded version of previous X3100 and with average price it is better selection. But as my opinion minimum 256MB dedicated video memory card is required to run some latest 3D applications and for that purpose you have to go for other options also.
Other features which are more or less common in comparison with all other laptops like screen size with 15.4" diagonal size DVD RW, card reader, high definition audio, network card and interfaces.
But the another considerable feature is here its battery capacity and back-up time, it is something disappointing that 6 cell battery is almost common in all laptops but the back-up period is something like 2 to 3 hours. Initially we can get up to 3 hours of back-up but finally it remains about 2 hours. The good solution for this to have a 9 cell battery for long back-up up to 5 hours.
Over all conclusion
This laptop has some latest featured and configuration with good speed processor and DDR3 RAM with good graphics capacity, will be better selection for gaming and some 3D applications.
The Samsung P560 is the ideal choice for business users who thrive on maximum mobility. Designed to withstand the rigors of today's 24 hour, non-stop lifestyle, it delivers the best in high performance functionality and leading-edge technology, all safely protected within its extremely sleek and rugged casing.
