Summary: I replaced my old MacBook with this computer and it's extremely fast. I have not regretted my purchase. I upped the RAM to 8GB and I've clocked Google Earth at taking only 3 seconds to start. The ONLY problem is the hard drive. It's terrible.
Summary: this computer has all the specs of a ferrari but runs like a prius. this laptops takes foreever to load. is the only laptop i have seen with something called fast boot from samsung. i wonder why did samsung felt the need to add this program. the laptop takes around 8 minutes to be ready to use. why?
A good quality, robust laptop that does all I need and more!

Excerpt: Having reviewed similar products on the market at the time that I bought this (June 2012) I spotted the Samsung RF511 in stores priced around £50 more than my vague budget. On further inspection I found it to be worth, in my view, more than the £50 extra and made that decision to take the plunge.
Pros: Solid, sleek, robust
Cons: Fingerprints on the casing is all I can cite as a downside
Summary: When my son said he needed a new laptop, being the owner of a Samsung RF712, I had no hesitation in recomending the make. With a budget of £600 the RF511 was a no brainer. This model with i5 and 8Gb ram and 1tb drive is fantastic value for money.
Summary: I purchased this laptop from Amazon in May 2012, during the Samsung VAT rebate offer. It is a pity that the laptop purchase has been jaded by Samsung. To date, I have not received the promised rebate just an email apologising for the delay, but that was 4 weeks ago.
Summary: Samsung laptop was ordered and arrived within the specified date quoted. Very pleased with this machine. Looks good and the speed is excellent specially for the price plus you get the VAT back.
The RF511 is almost perfect, but just needs some minor improvements.

Excerpt: I received the RF511 this morning and I have to say that Amazon's service has been brilliant in that they dispatched this via next day after my initial RF511 order went walkies in the West Midlands, courtesy of CityLink. First impressions on this laptop are mixed.

Summary: Samsung RF511 15.6 inch Laptop is one computer which I can honestly say that I do not have one bad thing to say about. It was so easy to set up, in fact it was just me turning it on and it did everything itself just asking me a few questions along the way, I was able to use the actual internet...
