Samsung NP-RC512-W02US is a 15.3 inch notebook being offered by the South Korean giant that features a 15.3 inch (not 15.6 inch like most notebooks) display and the latest Core i5 2430M processor that has two cores and runs at 2.4GHz clock speed. It has 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB hard disk and a built in DVD writer. Under load, its 2430M processor has the ability to over clock itself to 3GHz. If your prefer a slimmer profile, the Samsung NP900X4C-A01UK is clearly a better option.
Earlier, when this notebook was released, we thought that 15.3 was a typing mistake, but Samsung’s site clearly states that it does, intact, has a 15.3 inch display. Other specs include HDMI, 1x USB 3.0 port, 2x USB 2.0 ports, VGA, HDMI, card reader (4 in one) and 1.3 mega pixel webcam. All this for an amazing price of 500 dollars – yes, just 100 dollars more than your favorite netbook.
Update – Asus is now offering K53 BBR4 notebook for just 450 dollars – yes, $50 cheaper than this one. Find out more about Asus K53-bbr4 notebook.
