4.0 out of 5 stars Top bit of kit, 3 Mar. 2012
By 
This review is from: Samsung RF511 15.6 inch Notebook - Black (Intel Core i5 2450M 2.5GHz, RAM 8GB, HDD 1TB, DVD-SM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
Bought this Laptop for the good i5 processor speed, massive 8Gb RAM, and storage capacity (1 TB HDD).

Laptop feels sturdy but light weight with a great keyboard and touch pad. Battery life is good and is definately an upgrade from my old Toshiba laptop.

The spec on the Amazon website is exact except for under the product description, which appears to be copied from the Samusung website and lists there is a Nvidia GeForce 540M dedicated graphics card. This is not the case for this model number (NP-RF511-A01UK). Graphics is handled by the onboard Intel HD Graphics 3000. But this is still more than enough for playing DVD's and doing eveyday computer use without slowing the computer down. If you want to play high end games you might need to look elsewhere.

Overall this is a great laptop and would recommend it to others.

you probably gonna check this model on PC World or Currys, these retailers sell this model for only 599. You should have done researches before making the purchase.

Thanks for the info. I returned it and got an Acer timeline X with GeForce graphics. Much better performance :-)

One more tip. Be careful with the Acer laptop. Lots of complaints have been received with the laptops of Acer. You can check this on PC World's customer review. Actually, the quality of Samsung is much better than Acer. Although Acer has a cheaper price, it is cheap for some reasons.

I'm interested in this model, however there's a difference between the pictures on amazon and the ones I find on other websites about the RF511. Is the left Shift button long as shown on the images on amazon or short? Just for being short I returned a Lenovo laptop, believe me you're going to make a lot of typos if you're not used to it.

Customer Escalation Team.

I wanted to let you know that I have received a response from our product team regarding your enquiry about the Samsung Laptop.

You may have already received an automatic notification, but I wanted to personally update you.

I can confirm that this laptop comes with the NVIDIA GeForce GT540M Optimus Graphics Card, and the customer review is incorrect

I am sorry, but since I have purchased this exact item from Amazon about a month ago, I can confirm that it does NOT come with a NVIDIA GeForce Graphics card but with an Intel HD Graphics 3000. Unless you made a mistake and I should have mine replaced with one that has an NVIDIA card.
