Check the spec!
on 15 March 2011
I've only had this a week now but so far am delighted with the build quality and performance.
As always, excellent delivery and aftersales service from Amazon and my thanks in particular to Fiona, Vikki and Alan there who responded to my queries on the spec.
As has already been written in an earlier review, advertised spec is the one point you need to watch and, as the staff above discovered, errors are due to the many variants of the 540 sharing the same product description notes, as provided by Samsung, on the site.
I purchased it noting a Pentium P6100 of 2.13Ghz - in my basket it became 2.00 Ghz,and today it just states Pentium P6100, though below, in spec, it still wrongly states 2.26Ghz and indeed later refers to its i3!! ....... let me assure you this model has a Pentium P6100 dual core of 2.0Ghz. If you want more you need a different model, but I see these run to over £1,000 .... I suppose it's a case of you get what you pay for and for what I need - primarily internet browsing,word/excel use and photo storage/printing this model more than copes. I am not a "gamer" so cannot comment on suitability there!
Also missing from the spec was that it has 3 USB ports for those wondering! Final plus points worth a mention are excellent screen quality, demonstrated by the sample HD video loaded, and it runs virtually silent!
Overall I am impressed enough to be now buying another for my partner and a third for our daughter! Unbeatable value - and trust me I looked long and hard before buying :)
Update: 2nd laptop received and still a happy customer :) No real difference, as you'd expect, other than I actually received a recovery disc with this one that I didn't get with the first!
