Samsung R580-11 Laptop

The CPU inside is the Intel Core i3 model 350M.  The i3-350M is a 64-bit processor running at 2.26GHz.  It’s a dual-core processor with 4 operating threads.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and has HyperThreading.  The laptop comes with 4GB of  DDR3 RAM with a maximum capacity of 8MB.

The screen is a 15.6″ LED-backlit high-definition display with 1366 x 768 resolution. The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which uses shared video memory (up to 384 MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.

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 9.4″ x 13.5″ x 1.5″ 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.
