This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i3 380M processor.  This a 64-bit dual-core processor with 4 processing threads.  It has 3MB of Intel Smart Cache and operates at 2.54GHz.  It was built using a 32nm process and uses 35W of power. This system comes with 4GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 14″ LED-backlit high-definition display with a resolution of 1366×768. The screen is driven by Mobile Intel HD Graphics with 64MB-1756MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  This is not the laptop you want, if you want to play today’s games at their highest resolutions.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s a big drive, that has plenty of space for all your computer storage needs.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  The 4-in-1 media reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, SDXC and MultiMediaCard formats.

You can use some of that space for the integrated PVR (personal video recorder) to record some TV shows.  You also get Intel Wireless Display technology that wirelessly transmits streamed or downloaded movies, TV shows, music, photos and more from your laptop, network or the Internet to your TV (NETGEAR Push2TV adapter required, not included).

For networking you get a 10/100/1000Base-TX Ethernet LAN adapter for that Gigabit speed on your wired network.  For wireless you have two choices, you can use the 802.11 b/g/n adapter to connect to any wi-fi network, or you can use the built-in 4G WiMAX mobile broadband modem to connect to a 4G network in your area (requires a data subscription). Use those network connections with the built-in webcam and microphone for video chatting goodness.

External ports on this Samsung laptop include 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port, 1 HDMI port, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in port.  This laptop does not come with Bluetooth support.

For software you get Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition installed.  Other software includes a lot of crapware, Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight. Microsoft Office 2010 Starter also included (product key card required for activation; sold separately).

The laptop measures 14.9″ x 10.1″ x 1.4″ and weighs 4.7 pounds.  You get a 6 cell Lithium ion battery pack that can provide up to 7 hours of unplugged power.
