Advantages: funtionality, battery life, general laptop performance
Disadvantages: lack of microsoft office package
Ever since the laptop trend started and we said goodbye to our old computer, the Samsung R530 is our second laptop after our Sony Vaio which served us a good year or two and then we started experiencing problems.
I've had the Samsung R530 for almost 2 years now and it's got everything I could ask for! If you're away at university or on holiday it's built in high quality webcam is perfect for skype chats. It runs on Windows 7 which to be honest is SLICK!
Apart from the technical jazz, like its 15.6" lovely widescreen & LED backlight it has a gorgeous lush fashionable look which we weren't really asking for, so it was a bonus that it can which such a durable rich deep maroon/red shell case design!
The battery life is pretty good, I can say it lasts a few hours at the library without me having to make my way to a table with a plug socket (I am lazy). The hard drive has plenty of space unless for a normal user (I have loads of lectures as powerpoints, documents, photos, musics, films - no worries!)
The touchpad is a godsend because you dont need to hold onto the scroll bar and drag it down like on some of the older laptops, you can just use the side of the touchpad -its so sensitive you can even use it to make the page you're viewing bigger or small and rotate images.
It has a HDMI port so you can hook your laptop up with the TV can get HD quality video streaming onto the television without any quality being lost- this is true for images as well.
This laptop has not let me down (yet- touchwood) I am a heavy user and use it at least a few hours everyday and use it plugged in unless I'm being lazy. One thing that wasn't included in the price was the Microsoft Office package which I think you have to buy with most laptops anyway! I usually take this around with me when I travel, it's not too bulky-fits into most laptop bags (don't do this-but i've accidently dropped it a few times too and it's still going!!)
In a nutshell, good value laptop that does the job in style! x
Summary: great looks, great function!
