We review the Samsung R520 T6500 15.6 Laptop

Samsung have a growing reputation for delivering top quality laptops at very reasonable prices, and with their latest Samsung R520 T6500 15.6 Laptop they've certainly proved themselves a more than capable manufacturer of great products. But what exactly does the R520 have to offer you?

Well, it runs the Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 processor, with a speed of 2.1 GHz, which should be more than capable of handling almost all multimedia applications meaning that this laptop is ideal for just about anything.

The stylish 376 x 256 x 37mm stylish and durable spill resistant chassis weighs in at 2.6 KG and also houses 4GB DDR2 SDRAM running at 800 MHz and in 2 x 2GB stick configuration and a 500 GB SATA-150 hard drive which should prove more than adequate for most users.

The graphics are powered by the Intel GMA X4500 card, which isn't exactly a market leader but should prove good enough in most cases. The 15.6 inch display is a backlit LED TFT WXGA offering resolutions of up to 1366 x 768 pixels.

Additional features include WiFi card, Bluetooth aerial, stereo speakers, Gigabit Ethernet, 3 in 1 card reader and integrated 1.3MP webcam. The 6 cell Lithium Ion battery is good for around 6 hours use, depending on user settings, and everything runs smoothly with Windows 7 as the operating system of choice.

If you're looking to pick up a new laptop either to replace your old one or to supplement your home desktop while you're on the move, the Samsung R520 T6500 Laptop is deserving of at least your consideration - though the lack of power from the graphics card may push you towards an alternative.
