In the past few days, I've had a look at quite a few laptops that were launched recently. The Samsung R522 is one of them. Launched in May 2009, the Samsung R522 was recommended to me by a friend. I decided to visit the Samsung dealer in West Patel Nagar for a demo.
The first thing I noticed about the laptop was its glossy, metallic body. Next, I noticed the funky touch-pad with a backlit border strip and immediately fell in love with it. I was satisfied with the looks and now it was time to use the laptop. The Anti Bacterial Keyboard is nice and the touchpad material made it easy to control the mouse pointer. Many laptops are badly designed in the sense that your fingers tend to touch the touchpad while typing and it causes a lot of irritation. The Samsung R522 has a perfect design to avoid such problems.The laptop has a 1.3 Mega Pixel Webcam and a 15.6 inch 16:9 widescreen display. The 6 cell battery, gives it a battery life of up to 5 hours which I must say, is very impressive. The keyboard is not only Anti Bacterial, it also happens to be spill resistant. The Laptop is powered by a 2.0 GHz Intel Core2 Duo T6400 processor, has 2 GB DDR2 RAM and a 250 GB hard disk making it a great laptop for home use. The Samsung R522 is basically, a competitor of the Dell Inspiron series of laptops. Priced at around, Rs 37399, the Samsung R522 seems to be a better buy as it has many small but important features that are not present in the Dell Inspiron series.
You can read some more reviews of the Samsung R522 before forming an opinion about it. To get an even better idea of the laptop, you should visit your nearest Samsung dealer for a demo.
This was my opinion about the Samsung R522. But your opinion equally matters. What do you think about it? Will the Samsung R522 laptop be a success? People know Samsung better as an electronics brand and don't treat it like other Laptop brands. I just don't understand why someone should be skeptical about buying a Samsung laptop. If it has better features and is better value for your money, why should you bother about the brand? What would you prefer-an incapable Vaio or a fully loaded Samsung R522?
