Reviews for the Samsung RF510-S01US
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
If the Samsung RF510-S01US had two things to put on an advertising banner, it would be its speedy processor and powerful Nvidia graphics chip. It can take on most tasks with a smug yawn, yet leave enough room in your budget for another gadget. Its looks and battery scores aren't worth writing home about, although neither of which will matter if the laptop is tethered to an outlet and stays in one location most of the time, as most desktop replacements do. If you're looking for a better looking laptop, with better battery options, the Dell XPS 15 and HP dv7-4283cl are better picks.

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.
460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually, old laptops with 14-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
