Style Name: 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD
Before purchasing the Samsung RC520 I spent weeks looking online and instore for the perfect laptop, and I'm really glad I decided on this one. I have had it for about a week now, and am very impressed with it. (bought from Amazon.co.uk)

To start with, my main concern for this laptop was the battery life. There didn't seem to be much information online about how long the battery life actually was, all I found was "a long battery life." However on several sites it suggested only "2-3 hours." In actuality, the battery life on this laptop is very good. With light usage (browsing internet, word processing, etc) it has been 6-8 hours. Watching a video etc is about 3-4 hours. It also doesn't take very long to charge- about an hour. When stationary with a plug socket around, the battery can be taken out and the laptop run directly off the mains, preserving the battery. I couldn't do this with my previous laptop.

As for the outer look, this laptop appears to be very well built, although not too heavy. It doesn't have the cheap plastic look that some (even more expensive laptops) have. It is black on the outer and dark grey on the inner. It is made of hard plastic- but it has a shiny new look, and is very smart and attractive. Although the outer is black, I've found it doesn't collect too many fingerprints, though obviously they can't be avoided entirely. The screen is the standard 15.6" glossy. It is LED, the quality is excellent and sharp, and it has a nice colour output. The size fits most videos too so there are no annoying black bars.

And for the inner features- it comes with the new Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5 2410M 2.3GHz processor. My impressions of it so far are excellent. Having had a laptop with a Celeron, the i5 is very fast in comparison.

Style Name: 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD
Visually this laptop is beautiful, I had a look at other laptops such as Acer's 5750 and the look of the RC520 blows the competition in the price range away. It really does look sleek and modern rather than boxy and flimsy. The matt black finish on the back is great, whilst the interior dark grey almost looks like aluminium..

I love the keyboard! The keys themselves are similar to the apple keys, they have a solid and tactile feel to them and I felt very comfortable moving on from my old desktop keyboard. The arrangement is also great, everything is where its meant to be, I'm not quite sure how they managed to fit everything in but they give you a full numpad and separate up down left and right keys (many other notebook keyboards had the up and down keys half size). I don't think you could really be disappointed with this keyboard.

The webcam is adequate, the inbuild mic is kinda noisy but that may be normal for notebooks I'm not quite sure. Personally I use a small cheap separate clip-on microphone for skype as it sounds much clearer.

The screen is bright and clear and crisp and colourful and everything I needed. The only downside is the fact that it's glossy so I sometimes see glimpses of myself in dark areas of the screen especially when it's light outside, but I bought it knowing it would be glossy so I can't really complain about this too much.

Audio drivers warning!!
When I got this laptop with the pre-installed realtek v.6.0.1.6301 audio driver and listened to a few tunes the laptop speakers sounding disappointing to say the least. They were tinny and echoey it wasn't great at all.
I had assumed that this was just the speakers, which was a shame, but when I plugged in my tried and tested headphones I got the same tinny echoey problem.

Style Name: 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD Verified Purchase
good points:
quality feel.
good screen and sound (for a laptop).
i like the HDMI out put, good for watching content through TV.
good battery life.
good spec.
nice keyboard.
after market usb tv stick enables tv watching/recording through pre installed media centre.
does everything it is supposed to.

Bad points:
not quite the flying machine i thought it would be with the core i5 chip, it seems to take as long to open itunes as my 8 year old dell desktop did, but that's probably got more to do with itunes/windows interface. (apple probably do it on purpose)

Style Name: 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD
First of all, I must say the product performs fantastic - no flaws whatsoever - fast, reliable, smooth performance in these 2 days of using it had absolutely no problems, fan is so quiet you can barely hear it, had no problems with the keyboard, only thing I couldnt scroll the pages, didnt seem like mouse pad had it, outlook is nice

Now the reason why I am sending it back - screen really let me down, it is very obviously pixeleted - you can see the pixels and it really distracts from enjoying anything, colors are pale, blurry - tried to adjust them, but every time when i watched something i could only see flaws and compared the screen with my 2 year old compaq laptop which is half of the price - the old laptops screen had better resolution and intense nice colors

I could recommend this laptop if you are not bothered so much about the screen, because other than that it is amazing laptop for its price
