Reviews for the Samsung P580 Pro Penfield JA03DE/SEG
Silent office. This 15.6-inch notebook from Samsung sets out to be the perfect office companion, and one that you can count on. There is no energy-guzzling graphics card, and its tried and tested 'silent mode' makes typing quiet as a whisper. But is it equally impressive in its workmanship and portability?

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.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
