Samsung Laptop NP-R480-JAB1US

This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i3-330M processor. The Core i3 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 2 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.26 GHz and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.  It has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (800MHz) and can be expanded to 8 GB.  Perfect for multitasking.

The display is a 14″ LED backlit LCD display with a resolution of 1366 x 768.  The 16:9 aspect ratio and native 720p support makes it excellent for watching widescreen DVDs. The display is driven by an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which can share up to 1696 MB of system memory for video.  This chip is compatible with Microsoft DirectX 10.

The laptop comes with a 500 GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400 RPM.  This is a large hard drive and should store most everything you want, but it would’ve been nice to have a 7200 RPM drive.  The optical drive is a Blu-ray Disc-enabled DVD±RW/CD-RW drive which will help you take advantage of the 720p screen.  Blu-Ray is a good benefit if you’re into those discs.

For networking this notebook comes with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet on the RJ-45 port for wired connectivity.  Hook that up to your gigabit router at home and you’ll be lightning fast.  You also get Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n) for support of the latest wireless networking standard.

The multicard reader is a 3 in 1 slot that supports SD,  SDHC, MMC cards.  No support for Sony MemorySticks, but hopefully you haven’t gone down that path.  Other ports include a VGA port for an analog monitor, an HDMI port to output your Blu-Ray movies to your HDTV, 3 USB 2.0 ( 1 Chargable USB ), headphone and microphone jacks.  Like all other laptops this one comes with a built-in 0.3 megapixel webcam and internal microphone for Skype video chat. It also has a Express Card slot (34 mm).

The notebook comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.  Other software includes Adobe Reader. 60-day trial version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 also included.

For power it comes with a 6-cell Lithium ion battery (4400 mAh), and a 90 W AC adapter.  The laptop measures 13.5″ x  9.4″ x 1.2″ and weighs 5 pounds.  It comes with a standard 1-year warranty.

The Samsung laptop NP-R480-JAB1US can be found for $730.
