Samsung R540-11 Laptop

The Intel inside this one is the Core i5-450M processor.  This is a 64-bit dual core CPU with 4 processing threads.  It runs at 2.4GHz but can use TurboBoost to get up to 2.66 GHz when it needs to. This is a 35W processor.  The laptop comes with 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 RAM gives you the memory you need to multitask without a worry. It can hold a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ LED-backlit high-definition display with 1366 x 768 resolution. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD545v graphics engine.  This GPU has 1GB of  dedicated GDDR3 memory for strong performance in graphically intensive tasks.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  A good size for storing your digital photos, music and more, but not the fastest drive on the market.  The optical drive is a Blu-ray Disc-enabled DVD±RW/CD-RW drive which features read support for next-generation Blu-ray Disc. Double-layer support using compatible DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media. The media reader is only a 3 in 1 with support for Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity and MultiMediaCard formats, which should be enough, but make sure you don’t have a Sony card.

For networking you get a built-in 10/100Base-TX Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector for quick and easy wired Web connection. For wireless networking you can use the integrated 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter.  It has Blu-Ray but not Bluetooth, sorry.

External ports include 1 VGA port for connecting an external monitor, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 headphone out, and 1 microphone in jacks.  The internal speakers have support for high definition audio. A built-in 0.3MP webcam makes video chatting easy.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows Home Premium 64-bit.  Other software includes Microsoft Office 2010 Starter, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Cyberlink YouCam and more.

The laptop measures 10″ x 15″ x 1.4″ and weighs 5.5 lbs so it’s not exactly the most portable of laptops.

You can find the Samsung R540-11 laptop for around $970.
