Disadvantages: Quite heavy, Battery life is poor
Practical, fast and with a minimalistic design... A brilliant computer when connected to the mains. I am currently writing this review on this samsung R519... If your looking for a computer to take out and about with you on a regular basis, then this is probably not for you as the only disappointing feature i can think of is the battery life. With out the pains plugged in and the laptop on full power, this will only last for about an hour or two. You can make it last much longer by changing the setting to power saver but this will affect the performance of the computer.
Surfing the web, playing games, sharing photos and videos, using itunes and many other things you use a computer for is excellent on this machine. I use google chrome to surf the internet and it never lags. It loads the pages nice and fast. I have a library full of songs in my itunes and all the songs are safely stored away in the organised folders in my pc.
Its such a simplistic design, all you have is a beautifully big 15.6 inch screen, keys are standard size... perfect for my big fingers. It has a touch sensitive pad for scrolling down and across web pages and documents. A left and right click button underneath the touch sensitive pad. The laptop has 3 USB PORTS, 1 ETHERNET SOCKET, A SOCKET FOR CONNECTING TO A LARGER MONITOR, LINE IN SOCKET, HEAD PHONE SOCKET, STANDARD WEB CAM, SD CARD SLOT and DVD RAM. It doesn't have an HDMI port which i would have been great for me.
Be wary as it does heat up quite fast and quite hot when it is plugged into the mains so perhaps invest in a fan if you buy this. I do not have a fan and i have had no problems as of yet but its just a thought. Its quite heavy as well, i have handled much lighter laptops before.
Overall, it has its negative points but the positives out shine the bad points.
Its fast, simple design, plays movies on a beautiful screen, uploads fast and downloads fast. want something simple and full of high performance, then id recommend this.
Summary: Fantastic Laptop for me. Does everything i need. Best buy i have made in years
