Reviews for the Samsung RV510-A08UK
Source: CNet Archive.org version
Samsung describes the 15.6-inch RV510 as an affordable and powerful laptop. Priced at around £480, it's certainly affordable, but, as it uses a rather lowly dual-core Intel Pentium T4500 chip, can it really be described as powerful? The 15.6-inch Samsung RV510 certainly has its good points, including an excellent keyboard and vibrant screen, but its sluggish processor means it's outclassed by similarly priced rivals.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
