Reviews for the Samsung RF510-S01
Adding yet another comprehensively featured, high-powered laptop to its impressive range, Samsung's RF510 is a fantastic home media centre. While the Acer's longer battery gave it the edge, this is still a stunning multimedia machine and a worthy runner-up.

During testing, the Samsung RF510-S01's battery life was quite poor at only an average of about 2:30, which is way less than comparable models. This is really the main issue with this computer, so make sure you consider it wisely before you decide to purchase this laptop. If you don't intend to use it away from a power source, it's a wonderfully powerful and stylish computer.

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).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-560M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks also between 2.67-3.2 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.
