Summary: Not too much to say other than an overall positive experience. A little too much Bloatware on the PC, but we livein an age where that's unavoidable. My only complaint is that the keyboard feels flimsy at times. Perfect example? I've had to go back and edit 6 or 7 words in this post since the space bar doesn't seem to recognize a soft touch.
Pros: Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight, fast processing and browsing experience
Summary: this laptop met all my expectations.It is was easy to see with with the backlit touch panel.It was quite durable and light.I loved it but it was stolen.I am definitely buying another Samsung Laptop
Summary: I have to say I love my laptop. I couldn't be happier with the number pad on the side and the keyboard is not too small. It has pretty good battery life, and I have no problem playing an MMORPG on it. The space bar was extremely unresponsive at first, but has since broken in nicely. The keys are beveled, so it can get a little icky if not cleaned regularly, I would prefer a keyboard with smoother keys to alleviate this problem. All in all I'd give it 4 1/2 stars.

Summary: I haven't had a chance to get it completely operationa for what I want to do with it. In particular I haven't been able to get it connected to my wireless network. Although it has been working fine plugged into the wireless router. And before you ask yes I am going to contact customer support about this issue. I was some what dissapointed that it doesn't have a memory card slot for pulling pictures off my digital camera.
Summary: This laptop is pretty good. The construction seems solid and doesn't feel "cheap" and it is somewhat aesthetically pleasing. It is not very heavy despite having a good sized wide-screen LCD. It has a full numpad which is nice. The screen is crisp and bright. The stats are pretty good, having a fairly fast Core Duo processor and pleanty of RAM.
Never give up, things happen to those that believe.

Excerpt: The * Samsung 15.6" R530-11 Desktop Notebook (NPR530JT01US), * is an amazing processor, it has i3 which is pretty cool, cause now my laptop doesn't run as slow as my HP desktop. I bought it at Best Buy and they were very helpful in making sure that I was getting what I needed. My fiance is using it to run his Karaoke/DJ business and he has been able to download music a lot quicker. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.

Summary: Okay,, the resolution for the laptop screen isn't optimal. 1,366 x 768 isn't that great considering it has a Blu Ray player on board. Here is the thing. For me its perfect because i'm using the laptop to hookup to the 55 in LCD in 1080p. Yes the laptops HDMI and Intel Video will pump out to 1080p. The CPU is great. I have done benchmark tests and they were all good. I ran this laptop through the ringer the first 2 hours I had it.
Summary: I saw this laptop at Best Buy for $849, read favorable reviews on Cnet and really wanted it, but didn't want to spend that much. I thought this one was exactly the same. The touchpad is slightly different... I actually like it better. But there is a Firewire card in the Best Buy one and not in this one. Since I plan to edit video I was slightly disappointed. Other than that I can't detect any differences at all.
Summary: At first glance the SamR530 wows U. It is a beautiful device. Slender and sleek - it fits perfectly into my messenger bag - so... no need in trying to find a stylish enough laptop case to accommodate( we do not like those big bulky suitcases). The keyboard has to be the reason for my increased keystroke timing, it is fluid with its raised design. The 10key addition is wonderful, as I always feel awkward using the standard number keys.
Excerpt: "I've had this model for roughly 6 months and in my opinion is still up there with the mid range laptop's available. For your money your getting an LED HD screen 500GB hard drive 4GB ram plus Windows 7 aboard which will admit still getting used to but from my point of view I've fully enjoyed my experience with no problems at all the only downside though is the battery life at only 3 hours is quite poor really so is more of a on your lap on the sofa ...
Pros: great bright screen, great memory and storage
