Summary: Awesome, love it. Only problem being the 'smudges' on the screen where there has been some damage, but it doesn't matter to me, only the IT technician who checked it out. Beautiful laptop, great response time and thankfully, next day delivery.
Summary: I bought one of these in September 2010, it was a 'Which' best buy. It has performed excellently since then. I hardly ever move it from my home 'office'. Unaccountably it switched off while I was listening to music. I turned on again, continued.
Excerpt: This laptop is the best I have ever had. It's sleek, stylish look go well with the feel of the keyboard and the laptop itself. The laptop does have a 'plastic' feel, which surprised me at first.
Worth paying a little more for a great product, lots of hard drive storage, quick processors.

Excerpt: The Samsung R780 is a good all-round laptop for either the novice computer user or the more experienced who may want a little more out of their computing experience. The red casing makes it stand out from the crowd and the 17.3" screen size is large and clear.
Summary: Bought as a Xmas present problems from day 1, faulty mouse pad, returned under guarantee to Samsung, replaced Motherboard & top housing. Samsung returned supposedly fixed but this time had faulty wireless adapter.
Summary: I bought my R508 ! year ago. it has traveled around Europe with me by car, Motorcycle & flight. it has neither broken or even crashed. except for a windows 7 Glitch when i first bought it. unlike my previous sony Viao, and toshiba sattelite.
Pros: Brilliant piece of kit, reliable, functional, stylish & fast

Pros: ok specs
Cons: flimsy peice of sh*t , will litraly fall to bits for no reson
Summary: The laptop is a good solid product. My only reservations are associated with the keyboard layout. The delete key is very small. The Samsung setup was straight forward and "Windows 7" was installed with very few questions.
Summary: I bought the R580 (smaller version) for my Mum and it has been a perfect purchase as a mid range and affordable system that does everything she could need (she's not much of a gamer) with ease. I reccomend it without hesitation.
