Reviews for the Samsung NP300E5K-L04US
Source: Tech For Pennies Archive.org version
Samsung NP300E5K-L04US is not by any means a heavy-duty laptop, more like a choice for casual user. There’s plenty of performance for everyday tasks which includes anything you can do with browser, even streaming videos. Office type of use is also piece of cake, so is listening to music. I must also give points for the Full HD screen which is a rarity for this price. One thing that is off-limits would be gaming as there’s no proper graphics card present. Nothing can be done about that, but for the little money this Samsung costs I can not complain!

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
