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. buy one if you dont need to be to far from a power supply, If you do forget it.
Pros: Brilliant piece of kit, reliable, functional, stylish & fast
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.
Summary: On the whole, I am pleased with the R780. The screen isn't quite as good as it's predecessor the R710, but the i5 never gets hot and plays most of the latest PC games with ease- so long as you keep it plugged in =). Very interested to see what Samsung come up with next year.
