Advantages: it was a good price, it works well, and I think it looks stylish too
Disadvantages: didn't come with a battery
I recently bought a new laptop, a Samsung model, RV510. I bought it online, from eBay. It was from an eBay shop which is part of Argos which sells refurbished laptops. So the price was quite good and I only paid £240 for this which I think is a bargain.
I read a lot of reviews before buying this laptop as I wanted to make sure I bought the right one for me. Most of the reviews were very positive. I know that Samsung is a popular brand as well, and I have only ever good heard things about Samsung and its never let me down in the past. I also made sure the laptop had a guarantee on it before I confirmed my bid. I made a very careful well thought out decision about whether to buy this or not.
The laptop looks good. It has a shiny black lid on which looks stylish. Around where the buttons are it is silver and the buttons themselves are black. The keyboard is very easy to use and the keys are all spaced out very well and in the right places so I can type really quickly and with ease. I really like the feel of the mouse as well, which I was worrying about, as normally I don't like the mouse on laptops, but this one is actually OK.
Apart from looking good this laptop also works really well. It is quick and when you turn it on it takes less than a minute to get it to turn on. With my computer it used to take about ten minutes for it to turn on and for everything to load on, so this is very fast in comparison which is great.
This didn't come with Microsoft Office built in but I have since installed it and it works fine on here. I have also installed some PC games such as Beach Life. And I have also burned some music CD s and I didn't have to install anything new to the laptop to be able to do this so I think it must already have a CD burner built in. It also has Windows Movie Maker, Paint, and Windows Media Player built in already.
There seems to be loads of space on this laptop as I have transferred all my documents and music and pictures from my computer and they have all fit on, and there is still loads of room for more. I don't know how to find out the exact memory of this laptop but trust me that it has lots of memory as I had tons of documents etc in my libraries.
Internet explorer and firefox are both installed to this, I installed firefox myself but Internet Explorer was on here already, They both work really well but personally I think firefox is better.
Overall this is an excellent laptop and for the price I paid it is better than I expected it to be. I would definitely recommend it. I don't know much about laptops but I do know that this is a very good one.
It has 3 USB ports two are on one side and one is on the other side. This also has ports for headphones and a microphone. This also comes with a built in webcam, to find this just go to Start, then Cyberlink YouCam. It is a good webcam which takes good quality photos and you can add special effects to these photos as well, which is good fun. You can stretch out your face and make it fatter or thinner and make it look really funny. This is a great feature to the laptop, in my opinion.
Other features which are already built in include a calculator, some sample pics and music, and games. So just all the usual stuff really that you would expect to get on a laptop or computer.
Well anyway this is just from a student's point of view, nothing technical but just an opinion so hope it has been helpful to you. If you are thinking of getting a good, budget laptop to be used for home, school sort of stuff then this will do the job for you. It suits me perfectly and I would definitely recommend it. The only downside I can think of is the fact this didn't come with a battery so I always have to have it plugged in by the charger which obviously limits where I can go on it. But I could buy a battery so this isn't too big of a disadvantage.
So overall I recommend this.
Summary: Overall this is the perfect laptop for me and I would recommend it
