Reviews for the Samsung RF511-S03UK
Source: IT Reviews Archive.org version
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.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:
Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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).» 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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
