4.0 out of 5 stars Good, almost great.....
Yeah, this computer is pretty good, fast, quiet, good battery life (around 3 hours if you are browsing internet, listening to music or no heavy stuff).
I am using it for photoshopCS5 and lightroom3, and I can say that it handles it pretty good, by the way my computer sample has the new i5 intel core...
Now, the design is 8.5 in a scale to 10, its nice...

This review is from: Samsung RF511-S02 15.6-Inch Laptop (Brilliant Black) (Personal Computers)

The sound is loud and clear, nice...
The camera is kind of weak, not much resolution, not so nice...
The fast start is ok, sony, toshiba and hps are a little faster from when you open the computer to start messing with it... kinda nice...
The price is fair, not cheap, that would be a hp with same specs for 100 bucks less, but then you have to deal with all the crappy hp stuff that comes with it, wich is a pain...
What really bothers me (I am the guy who changes computer every six months) is no Firewire NOR ExpressCard slot. That means, I have a miniDV camcorder and CAN'T hook it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I have to go out and buy an adapter for around 70 dollars when I could have it in my laptop... Anyhow....
Good, not Great, Its new, lets see what happens....
Thanks for reading...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent computer but abysmal hard drive, March 17, 2012

This review is from: Samsung RF511-S02 15.6-Inch Laptop (Brilliant Black) (Personal Computers)
I replaced my old MacBook with this computer and it's extremely fast. I have not regretted my purchase. I upped the RAM to 8GB and I've clocked Google Earth at taking only 3 seconds to start.

The ONLY problem is the hard drive. It's terrible. I've run test upon test upon test and it comes back fine, but it is ridiculously slow. It takes about 5 minutes for me to login and actually get online. I cloned my hard drive onto a Western Digital and it flies. No, I don't have viruses. The hard drive is terrible. Samsung dropped the ball on that one.

Otherwise the computer is excellent, but you'll want to replace the hard drive eventually.
