Paid £350 for this spec in Argos before Xmas.
Good if basic machine but packed with features.

Think that lappy was £269 just last week. This would make a good 'family' computer. My son has the T3000 celeron and it's surprising how well it copes with all his 'youtube, twitter, and facebook stuff. I expect the T3300 will be a step up from the T3000. Heat added.

How did you search for it? Did you just type Samsung and expected it to magically appear?

Fantastic deal. You get DDR3 so not so much need for a core i3 or pentium with their fast on chip caches.

Shame it's not compatible with the core i3 as you'll be limited to 32 bit Windows (64 bit is much memory hungry) and just 4Gb maximum RAM. Hopefully you'll give it enough use to wear out other parts (eg keyboard, screen hinges) before you write it off as "old technology".

See previous comments, here, http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/red-samsung-r530-ja0h-laptop-celero/847177

Cracking price though, at a store you can trust/return to.

Chipset, I think, is GL40 Express which can handle DDR2 and DDR3, as far as I know the two are incompatible as the slots are different, might be worth checking more details of the RAM on this, some may R530's may have DDR2 while others DDR3.

Or go crazy and spend £50 on a core i3 by emachines that will last (with care) a couple of years longer than this technology.

Looks like a great deal to me
#10
Good price. Good spot.
#11
Some help I am!

Just bear in mind the faster you upgrade the more money Intel gets to develop new stuff that renders the old stuff obsolete.

The CPU will happily run 64 bit Windows. The crucial memory picker suggests it will take up to 8GB of RAM also, although I'm not certain it's worth that much effort/spend upgrading such a cheap laptop.

Great price for a good lappy, heat added! :)

#33
Nice find
#34
Has anybody received there’s yet, all I received was a phone call saying they can no longer supply them and my order had been cancelled (I ordered at about 1:00 14/04/2011) :(
#35
Got that phone call as well last night...

#36
Got the call (answer machine) but I have already told my 11 year old daughter that I ordered it. What annoys me is that she is so understanding.
#37
did anyone get their order ?
#38
Boooooooooooooo
Got the call never answered and it's on my answer machine...
Don't wanna listen again, thank god it deletes after 7 days....

Did anyone actually get one?
Seems they might have mispriced and now we're getting shafted
