Samsung's claims for the R540. Pretty standard looking, it is a delicious chocolate colour and has an all-rounder configuration. The chocolate look of the Samsung R540 is combined with the fact that it's a comfortable and quiet laptop to use. An all-rounder, it is at ease with office documents and has a numberpad. On the downside, its screen lacks contrast and the touchpad is too small.
