Samsung R70 is Average for the Price
Member Name: BrandonKane
Advantages: Good looking, silver particle keyboard, hdmi output
Disadvantages: sluggish, known fault with graphics card can render the laptop useless
I purchased a brand new Samsung R70 laptop insteas of a Sony Vaio due to a lower price on the Samsung although it out specced the Sony model. The laptop is very smart looking and has a glossy piano black lid which I found to become easily scratched and smothered with fingerprints. The base of the lapton contains silver which acts as an anti bacterial protective layer, a great bonus for a laptop & keyboard as they can get filthy. Overall a very smart looking laptop. Performance wise I was not too happy although it adequately performed heavy tasks I put it through. The laptop was not as fast as some lower processor models I tried such as from HP and the TFT screen can look a little dull at times, something I noticed on othe Samsung laptops I have come across. The R70 has all the ports you would expect from USB to network, vga & PCMIA slots as well as a HDMI output. The processor is suppoesed to be one of the first Santa Rosa chipsets released which included support for Windows Turbo Boost although the technology did not return any noticeable performance gains. The battery life was not great even though the new CPU was supposed to extend battery life. Also the unit only had WiFi b/g when it should of also included Wireless N. I have to point out that this laptop stopped working after 18 months when the graphics card stopped working. A quick look on the Internet found this is a common problem with no avenue to get it fixed so I had to bin my R70 laptop in the end.
Summary: I really liked this laptop although it is a bit slow and broke down too quickly
