The previous reviews covered most (if not all) of the positives about this computers. As for one reviewer's dislike of the keyboard, that's clearly a matter of taste as I find the keyboard OK, position-wise and the feel of the keys.

Anyhow, to take up the issue stated in this review title. The first thing I did after acquiring the RV-511 was to junk Windows 7 and install GNU-Linux Ubuntu 10.04. This is the most recent Long Term Support Ubuntu distro. It installed without ANY problems at all. And needed only the Broadcom driver to get wifi working faultlessly. I disabled the touchpad (it is very sensitive) and use a mouse instead. The screen is bright with good color rendition. The sound, well, mediocre comes to mind.

The RV-511 runs very quietly and cool. I've monitored the temperatures fairly frequently and they are well below the point where the fan needs to cut in.

For the few Windows apps that don't have any near (or as good as) Linux equivalents available from the repositories, I installed VirtualBox with Windows XP SP3 as the guest OS. I've had this on a desktop for over a year now and it is ultra stable, no problems at all.

I'm very pleased with this machine. It has been running now for 3 months It performs very well and, so far, no hassles. As far as looks are concerned, it's an attractive package, silver and black lid, silver case and a nice glossy black keyboard panel.

I bought this laptop about 8 months ago and I absolutely love it. I am a teacher and move from school to school during the day so it travels everywhere with me. I have not had a single problem with it so far, despite the abuse it takes on a daily basis. I absolutely love the "quick restart" after closing the lid because when I am teaching it is nice that my computer is back on in 5 seconds. My old computer took a minute before I could get back on and access programs. The keyboard types very easily and it doesn't feel like a "laptop" keyboard to me. Having a side number keypad was absolutely essential for me as well, which this computer does. My only complaint is that the silver finish near the keyboard is a little scratched up, but again, I am not easy on it. As long as it is still working okay, it doesn't bother me. Despite the wear, I still have students saying how fancy the laptop looks even though this was relatively cheap compared to comparable laptops of equal build. I love the screen - it is very bright and I usually keep the brightness near the lowest setting to help with battery life and I find the brightest settings are just too bright for my eyes. The computer is great at multitasking - I am often running MS Word, PowerPoint, and internet at the same time, and sometimes have Adobe Photoshop going too, which is a huge program. I was hesitant when I bought it to break away from the more popular brands of computers (Dell, Compaq, HP, etc.) but I am so glad I did. I am so much happier with this computer than I was with my last few and would buy another one in a heartbeat! I highly recommend it if you are looking for a durable, quality computer.

This was my very first laptop I bought. I've had it for 3 (going on 4) years now. We've had our ups and downs, but I can safely say that I'd recommend this as an everyday laptop.

-I love the feel of the keyboard. Some manufacturers don't quite get it right and make keyboards unnecessarily clunky or cluttered. I wanted an actual numeric pad for some number crunching, and this laptop has that all while not messing up the feel of the keyboard.

-Quiet cpu. Although I got a laptop fan for it about 3 or 4 months ago, the laptop will not cause a ruckus.

-Fast for just about everything. Although it may not look like it, the i3 on the rv511 is perfect for everyday web browsing, netflix watching, and the occasional game or two.

-Good boot time. Although it wasn't as fast when I first got it, it's still impressive for a 3+ year old laptop.

-Reliability. In the time I've owned this thing, I've only had to return it once to get something fixed, and that was mainly because I accidentally dropped it and it wouldn't turn on. I rarely have applications just crash, and have yet to experience a shut down out of nowhere.

-Not the best for gaming. I'm a huge gamer, but I had a set budget when I choose to buy a laptop during my junior year of high school. When I stated above that it could have been used for an occasional game or two, I really only meant non-graphic intensive games. Terraria and League of Legends on low quality will run fine in addition to plenty of flash games, but forget about trying to run Crysis or Call of Duty.

-The battery is as bad as dicks. When I first got it, the battery held a charge of about 2.5-3 hours.

Aesthetically Pleasing, But...
I was shopping for a new laptop in Best Buy after dropping my Gateway and cracking its screen when this laptop caught my eye. It's considerably thin when closed and has a very sleek modern look, with its shiny silver encasement and a keyboard outlined in a hard glossy black plastic. After looking at the specs what shocked me even more was the price. For $550, this laptop offers 500 GB of hard drive space, 4 GB of RAM, and an Intel i3 processor. Anyone who's in the market for a new laptop knows that for those features, that's a pretty good price, right? The salesman gave me reasoning for such a good price, "Samsung is just getting their feet wet with computers, so..." That was convincing and I've had such good luck with Samsung products in the past. I had even considered fixing my 2 year old Gateway, which never worked quite right in the first place, but I decided that going ahead and buying a brand new laptop was the better choice and scooped this one up. Here are the upsides:

-Obviously, the 500 GB of hard drive is a plus, even though I store most of my media/data on an external hard drive. It's good to know that if I need it, it's there.

-Believe it or not, the i3 is a mighty little processor. Teamed up with 4 Gigs of RAM, it's impressive. Programs move pretty fast and when I open my laptop after closing, it quickly resumes the operating system. Nice!

-The LED display is average notebook size at 15.6 inches and I have absolutely no complaints. Bright, clear, and crisp.

-The optical drive is fast responding. And there is a convenient little SD card slot for the photographers. The HDMI port (which I had on my Gateway) is awesome and I would have been a little down were it not included.
