Samsung Core i5 NP-R580-JSB1US Laptop is Impressive

I recently searched, reviewed and compared the best laptops available today because I was looking to buy a new laptop. I was even thinking of getting a netbook but in the end, I decided to get a more powerful laptop. I got the Sony Viao VPCCW21FX which is pretty good and slick. But the Samsung NP-R580-JSB1US 15.6 inch Laptop has impressed me so much! I highly recommend this laptop.

Imagine having the processor Intel Core i5, 4Gig RAM, 500GB SATA Hard disk, 15.6 inch widescreen LED screen with 1366 x 768 resolution and it doesn’t stop there. Aside from the already impressive specs and powerful computing power, it sports an NVIDIA GeForce GT 310M graphics with 512MB GDDR3 video memory. This is great for gaming and for video editing.

But it doesn’t stop there. The specs are powerful for gaming and computing but for entertainment, it gives you Blue-Ray player. These things doesn’t come cheap but Samsung made sure that this can also be used for multimedia entertainment. And by the looks of it, it is.

The jackpot and final factor for this great and awesome machine is the price. It’s only $829.99. Judging from the specs, if you buy this from HP, Sony or Lenovo, this might cost you around $1,000 bucks.

Here’s the full specs and review for the Samsung NP-R580-JSB1US Laptop. It comes in both black or red.

Processor: Intel® Core™ i5
Processor Speed: 2.26GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 2.53GHz )
Battery Type: 6-cell lithium-ion
Display Type: High-definition LED-backlit (1366 x 768)
Screen Size (Measured Diagonally): 15.6″
System Bus: 1066MHz
System Memory (RAM): 4GB
Type of Memory (RAM): DDR3
Hard Drive Type: SATA (5400 rpm)
Computer Hard Drive Size: 500GB
Optical Drive: DVD±RW/Blu-ray Disc/CD-RW
Optical Drive Speeds: Drive speeds not specified
Direct-Disc Labeling: No
Digital Media Reader or Slots: Yes, digital media card reader
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 310M
Video Memory: 512MB GDDR3

I highly recommend this laptop and I think it is well worth the price Samsung is asking for. The only concern I see in this is that it only has a standard 6-cell battery so it’s roughly around 3 hours. Not bad.

Also, if you are brand conscious, Samsung is a new player in the laptop market so it can be awhile before they start gaining brand recognition in this market.

What do you think?

    Bro, that is pretty impressive I must say. Samsung is really serious in doing great products nowadays. Early this year they presented the FIRST ever 3D TV next to their LED. And now they are hitting the PC industry. This must be a highly recommended laptop bro. Thanks

  5. Hey McBilly!

    How’s it going dude? Long time no see. Anyway, regarding your article, I suggest you take a look at the MSI CX420. It costs around P35,000.

    Do you have any idea when the Samsung laptop will be released here in the Philippines?

  6. McBilly,

    Check out the latest laptops from Lenovo. This was taken from the Lenovo Product Launch –

  7. […] the technology scene, heck they’re even entering the laptop market and recently released the Samsung Core i5 NP-R580-JSB1US, but most of their products are a hit and miss for me. Although they have consistently been able to […]

    I think Samsung NP-R580-JSB1US is likely similar to Sony Viao VPCCW21FX, only that Samsung has a higher but slight difference on processor and video RAM against Sony. For me, I think it boils down to where you will use it, if you’re on gaming or graphics editing then have a high def on the graphic specs and the like. The price would definitely matter, at least compare it against the other laptops.

    In any way, I think this Samsung would be a good buy against the Sony… :P

    Hmmm. My current laptop is already depreciating and I am planning to buy a new one if the budget permit. My cellphone is samsung, and I’m confident on the brand. But I’m not really sure about what it will do in the portable computer industry. Let’s just hope it can do better than Sony.
