Conclusion: This is a very decently-priced laptop for its size and should you come around one and need something that could do a good job replacing a desktop computer, this is a good pick. It's not too heavy, battery is very good and it packs more then enough power for its price.
Conclusion: The Samsung R780-Hero is a 17.3 incher that tries to unite the strengths of an Office notebook with those of a multimedia laptop. The R780 bids a very good cooling system with Silent Mode for noise sensitive users on the ergonomic side.
Pros: High performance in applications, Quiet in Silent Mode, Cool surfaces, Good battery life for a 17.3 incher, The powerful Core i5 in a very quiet and cool case. The Silent Mode, once again, is awesome.
Cons: Contrast poor TFT, Acute viewing angles, Yielding keys, As already in the R580 - a contrast richer display with stable viewing angles. Apart from that, a firmly fitted keyboard for frequent typists would be worth its weight in gold.
Samsung R780 17.3" HD+ LED (Intel Core i5-430) Notebook Review
4 June 2010
Conclusion: The Samsung R780 is something that I wouldn’t mind owning. I wouldn’t mind using it as my main system as well. It’s surprised me at how capable it really is and has allowed me to do just about everything I was used to previous.
Summary: Samsung hits all the right spots with the R780. This 17-inch machine has great graphics muscle for a low price while delivering luxury laptop looks. At the list price of $929 it's a decent choice, but for the Best Buy price of $799 the R780 is a steal.
Conclusion: Looks good, works well and doesn't cost a packet - what's not to like? Well, apart from the disappointing sound and below par Blu-ray playback, not much. For the most part, though, this is a stylish machine which delivers good results.
Pros: Neat styling and good value
Cons: Screen resolution doesn't match Blu-ray playback, tinny sound
