Feng-Shui. Who needs a graphic card, Bluetooth or ExpressCard when typing? Ergonomics and display, thats what its all about! The Pro Pitts focuses on the essentials and cuts quite a figure in doing so.

While its ergonomics are certainly to the credit of the Samsung P530, you may be swayed by the higher specification of something like Mesh's Dynamo i3V which also happens to cost more than £100 less.

Samsung's P-series laptops are aimed primarily at business users, so they don't have the same flash styling as some of the company's consumer efforts. The 15.6-inch Samsung P530 is an affordable business laptop with a fair amount of grunt. It has a great keyboard and screen, but it's let down a little by its relatively poor battery life.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i3:

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

2.384 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.4 kg:


79.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
