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.
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
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: Bought this Laptop for the good i5 processor speed, massive 8Gb RAM, and storage capacity (1 TB HDD). Laptop feels sturdy but light weight with a great keyboard and touch pad. Battery life is good and is definately an upgrade from my old Toshiba laptop.
Summary: I've had a few laptops, but this one was a dream to set up - as someone else has said, it virtually did the whole thing itself! I have never had a trouble-free connection of a new laptop to my wireless router, but this one did it.
Summary: Having received my laptop I set about following the Windows Install procedure, which took rather a long amount of time. When it did finally install it was preloaded with Samsung bloatware that was neither needed nor wanted.
Summary: Bought this a year ago and it hasn't disappointed. The speed has slowed a bit but that is normal as you put on more software - I've yet to hear of a medium priced laptop that performs as well as it gets older - overall pleased with the product apart from the peculiarity that the cursor tends to move...
Summary: This product was good value for price when I bought it in May 2012. The only downside is the lack of a graphics card. If you are into playing computer games on your laptop, go for another product. Otherwise, this is a good laptop, had no problems since I bought it.
