Reviews for the Samsung RC710-S02UK

If you're after a big-screen laptop that's suitable for family use at home, Samsung's RC710 may appeal. Our version of this 17.3-inch machine will set you back around £750, but does it have the chops to keep the whole family entertained? The 17.3-inch Samsung RC710 offers a decent processor, screen and keyboard, but its boring design and sub-par gaming performance limit its appeal as an all-round entertainment laptop.

Large laptops tend to be characterised as ‘desktop replacements' - that is, they're designed to sit on a desk and not be moved very much, and used as a replacement for a desktop computer. The Samsung RC710 S02, with a 17.3in screen, isn't explicitly marketed as a desktop replacement, but it's unlikely to be most people's choice of portable computer. All in all, those who don't need portability will find this a good-value computer.

If you need a laptop for getting online, enjoying your media and staying in touch with friends and family, the RC710 is a great option, though best kept at home, thanks to the bulky build and limited battery life.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 315M: Slightly lower clocked GeForce 310M and therefore also based on the GT218 core that was introduced with the Geforce G210M. Entry-level graphics card that was introduced in late 2010.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


480M: The Core i5-480M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.66-2.9 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in 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.
