50% Samsung P560-54G

The Samsung P560-54G ($1,150 street) gives you just about everything you need in a general-purpose laptop except a desirable design. A big 15.4-inch widescreen, an HDMI port, and a midrange Nvidia 3D chipset are praiseworthy, but this machine is a hard sell when the competition is offering similar features for less money. The Samsung P560-54G doesn't skimp on parts, but a sad-looking design and a bloated price tag are huge knocks against it.

If 3D abilities are important to you, the $1,299 Samsung P560-54G may be worth a look. Of course, you can configure other makers’ business portables with discrete graphics and get similar performance for a similar price, along with a little more style. Small-business users could get a better deal with the Dell Vostro 1510, or the XPS M1530 if they need a little more muscle. As the new kid on the block, Samsung had to give buyers a reason to jump ship; we can’t say this first effort does so.

60% Samsung P560-54P 15.4-inch Thin and Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Samsung's P560-54P is designed to be an affordable 15.4-inch thin and light laptop PC. While it certainly has a minimalistic design akin to a business class laptop, it has tough competition from the likes of Lenovo. While the screen is very bright and colorful thanks to the LED backlighting, the keyboard just doesn't cut it for a machine of this nature. The battery life is also well below Samsung's six hour rating with it generate roughly four hours on the tighest power settings.

Samsung reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS: Slower clocked 9600M GT and therefore a bit slower and cooler. In conjunction with an 9100M the 9600M GS is able to use HybridPower to save current.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.

P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).


15.4: 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. 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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 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.

2.6 kg:


56.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
