3.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 3 300E5E 15.6-inch Notebook (Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Intel HD Graphics 4000, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
This was bought as an old desktop replacement for a relative who is a "light" user - emails, browsing, occasional word processing. The machine looks fairly nice and the keyboard responds well enough but the overwhelming impression was the awful amount of time it takes to open up - really, really slow and hardly faster than the ancient machine it was bough to replace.
Once open, it performs well enough - not startling, but OK for what is required.
Disappointingly average and I'm sure there are better machines for the same price.

Hi, Partisan, that was helpful. I was going to try and save a few quid as I wanted two laptops but that's not going to happen now. I guess it's the slower Celeron 847 1.1GHz that's the problem, so now know to look for something with a better processor.

Thanks.
