Reviews for the Samsung RF711-S02DE

Multimedian. Samsung introduces the Sandy Bridge processors to the RF range and supplies a proper multimedia laptop that is even suitable for gaming in the RF711. Why this laptop wastes a part of its theoretical maximum performance can be read in our review.
85% Samsung RF711 17.3in Core i7 laptop
Source: Reg Hardware English
The screen is massive and comfortable to work on, and Samsung has used the width of the RF711 to great effect, with an ample, solid keyboard. It gets even better when you consider the price - compare this to the slightly slower Sony Vaio VPCF21Z1E, which costs nearly two grand and has a smaller screen, albeit a 3D-capable one with more pixels. With a street price currently under a thousand pounds, the RF711 is a great, portable (sort of), all-round computer. Just don’t call it a laptop.

70% Samsung RF711 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Samsung's RF711 is an affordable and stylish multimedia powerhouse that's stuffed with features and connectivity yet is held back by an average screen and speakers, not to mention battery life that can be measured in minutes rather than hours under intensive workloads. However, if you want its quad-core power, don't mind its weaknesses and your budget won't stretch to pricier rivals, it's definitely worth considering.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

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

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.


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. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17,3": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.89 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.
