Reviews for the Samsung RV520-W01

REVIEW: Samsung RV520
Source: BCW - Business Computing World English
Samsung’s RV520 offers good all-round value. Its ergonomic features, including the chiclet-style keyboard and beautiful display also ensure a more enjoyable and productive user experience. And a battery life of around 6 hours is hard to beat in a 15-inch laptop. However, the RV520 is a budget laptop that hasn’t been designed specifically for business users, so it lacks in terms of design, power and data security.

Every little bit counts when the price severely limits what can be placed into a budget laptop. The Samsung RV520-W01 delivered excellent battery life and the newest in wireless technology. If your taste in design is more exquisite, the HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl and Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066A9U can fulfill those needs and more, for around the same price.
