80% Samsung RF511: a good all-purpose laptop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Need a laptop that can be used for entertainment purposes as well as boring old office work? Samsung's RF511 is relatively inexpensive, yet it packs a lot of speed and good features. For just over $1000 (if you shop around), you get an Intel Core i7 CPU as well as a Blu-ray drive. We think it's a great laptop for anyone who wants to be entertained as well as do serious work.

Source: Comp Reviews English
With a street price of just around $900, the Samsung RF511-S02 is a very affordable laptop that comes with the new Core i7 quad core processor that is great for those who multitask. The graphics of the system are also quite capable for those looking to do some PC gaming on the side. There are some quirks with the system that can be annoying to various users.

Quad all-rounder. Samsung responds to the high demand on the previous model, RF510, with a revision called RF511. Graphics and processor performance have been upgraded to a quad core and Fermi. The perfect all-rounder?

60% Samsung RF511 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Physically, the RF511 is distinctly middle of the road. It's got the look of an office laptop, only with a conservative mesh of platinum coloured keys and borders. Put simply, it looks very old-fashioned, and could soon look even more so, once the first ultrabooks start trickle onto the market in 2012. That said, its functional – if occasionally flimsy – design and inclusion of Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 will attract buyers. The three-hour battery life is nothing special, where the use of a WXGA panel puts it further behind the curve for advanced users.

Samsung reviews


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

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

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


Intel Core i3:

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2520M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


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.


2.562 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.

2.6 kg:


76.29%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.

» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
