Samsung R440 Review: Sturdy but lacking for its price
Source: Notebooks.com English
Overall a sturdy notebook with OK specs, but users will be better off spending an extra $70 to bump up to the Samsung R480 which has a Blu-Ray drive and a better keyboard. If you can find this notebook on sale for under $600, you could score a good deal as long as you can overlook the traditional keyboard and heat when running for long periods.

Its graphics performance, meanwhile, was similarly acceptable, managing a 3DMark06 score of 1,732 and a Cinebench OpenGL rate of 1.25 frames per second. What do most business travelers want out of a laptop? Flexibility, portability, and ease of use at a reasonable price -- pretty much what most students and home users are looking for, too.

Samsung reviews


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:

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

Intel Pentium:

P6000: The Pentium P6000 is an entry level CPU based on the Arrandale core. Compared to the Celeron P4500, the P6000 offers a bit better performance due to the faster System Bus and an increased Level 3 cache. However, VT-x is not available for the P6000.


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


1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


70.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
