The Samsung R519 is a great value, no-frills budget 15in laptop. As well as notable netbooks and popular ultraportables, Samsung has also successfully staked out the competitive ground of entry-level full-size laptops. Simple but reasonably quick and solid, the Samsung R519 is a sound choice as a cheap no-frills 15in laptop, and one offering great value for money.

A no-frills machine offering truly impressive value for money. Samsung's R519 represents an affordable way into laptop ownership. Despite its low price, it has a modern design and sports a widescreen display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The R519 may not offer the style or premium feel of some of the other laptops, but it does offer an excellent platform for no-frills computing. If you're after a cheap machine simply to browse the internet or create documents on, then this is well worth a look.

Looking for a budget notebook? The Samsung R519 definitely won’t bring excitement into your life, but it does provide an awful lot of laptop for the same price as a well-equipped netbook. Unlike most netbooks, however, it also provides a much more usable screen and user interface, decent office performance and an optical drive. If you’re in the market for a bargain-basement new laptop, then the Samsung R519 is a compelling choice.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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

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


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T4200:

Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

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.» 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.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
