80% Samsung NP600B5B-S01UK review
Source: PC Advisor English
If you're after a solid, functional and quick laptop for work there is the Samsung NP600B5B-S01UK. It isn't the most portable model around at 3.7kg so you should think twice if you need to carry every day. The screen is decent and though the keyboard is fine it is let down by a numeric keypad we just found too squashed.

Source: IT Reviews English
Slightly chunky, slightly clunky, a bit heavy, and a bit boring to look at - but sturdy, with a separate numberpad on the keyboard and shock protection for its hard drive. All in all, the Samsung 600 B5B is a solid enough laptop that's suitable for the accident prone among us.

The Samsung 600B5B isn't the most beautiful laptop on the market, nor is it the most powerful, but it will happily plough through any office task and won't shy away from the odd knock and bump on the road. If you're after a business laptop with security features your IT department will appreciate, it could be a good option.
