Samsung - R780 laptop review
Source: IT Reviews English
If your desktop PC has just packed up, you could do a lot worse than replace it with this gorgeously sexy and powerfully performing 17.3-inch laptop with its superb keyboard, gamer-friendly graphics card and bright screen.

The R780 is the largest and highest performance of Samsung laptops. Samsung highlights its combination of technology with an original design. Comfortable to use, quiet and with a nice design, the Samsung R780 is worth a look. Good overall performance however, its screen and the audio leave something to be desired, which almost cost it another star on our rating.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


430M:

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.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.
