I needed a laptop for work and a bit of gaming, nothing complicated, mostly World of Warcraft. This laptop has performed well for. Quick doing the mundane tasks such as microsoft office and moving presentations around on screen. The pc looks quite smart as well, quite plain but solid and professional enough.
In terms of graphics I can play World of Warcraft with the settings at good, although Rift struggles above poor due to the numerous landscapes and spell effects which has made Rift popular. Warcraft looks a lot better on this model than my previous acer laptop. The video output from the lap top is solid and the 2ghz duel core processor makes light work of zipping between Internet, applications and back again without any noticeable lag. This is a well priced laptop that leans more toward work and general pc tasks, with a little bit of gaming thrown in if you need to take a break.
This is an excelent buy very quick, sometimes to sensitive, however as a mature student i have found this a must have piece of equipment. The quality of the screen and colours is excelent and a bad work cannot be said. I find it easy to navigate and that is definately a bonus with me, as i will be the first to admit i find computers difficult to understand.I have had my laptop for about for months now it came with Vista which i was a little worried about but have had no problems to date, the 4 GB memory is sufficent enough for my truckloads of music pictures and files that are much needed for my university work. The only negative experience i have had is i feel the battery does not hold its cahrge for a sufficient length of time which can be very frustrating at times as the alert for low battery isnt always obvious untill it is to late.
Overall this is an excellent buy for a student and a business person.
The Samsung R522 is a very quick and very reliable laptop. I have had it for a couple of months now and I am very pleased with it. I think it is a very attractive laptop and looks professional. Mine came with windows 7 which I would also defiantly recommend, at first impressions it appeared to be a revamped better looking vista but I think it is more than that, it is faster, more intuitive and looks better than its predecessor. The battery life of the laptop is pretty good, I have had no problems with it, and a very useful feature of the Samsung R522 which I have been using is the ability to turn the backlight out with the click of a button enabling to keep downloading things whilst saving on the battery life The 15.6 inch widescreen display is excellent for watching movies etc and has replaced my TV in my room. This is the best laptop I have owned so for me its 5 stars.
