I think that must be a typo by Comet; as the i3 comes with GMA (5700MHD) graphics that are significantly better than the x4500MHD.

I just picked one of these up. Use code 6400 when you reserve and collect to bring price down to £403.26 :)
#8
Worth noting it's Windows 7 32-bit.
#9
is this integrated gfx or is it dedicated
#10
It's an Integrated graphics card.
#11
I think this is a great deal.I bought the same one from Comet last week for £440 including 6% off and thught that was good! Very pleased with it and had good service at Comet too.
#12
Purchased this laptop today as I thought it was a great price and quality is excellent.
#13
Quick question... In practical terms, how much difference does it make that this has the 32bit version of the OS, rather than the 64 bit?

I know it affects how much memory can be addressed, but if this comes with 3GB and I don't intend to upgrade that, would there be much other difference?
#14
Well it's faster and better looking than my old laptop which is only 18months old...I'm really chuffed with it.
TO be honest I only use mine for internet, office now and then and music.
Don't need 64-bit machine....wouldn't make any difference to me.
#15
I've reserved the Samsung R530-JB02UK, 4gb. Paid £469 with code
Can anyone advise if it's worth the extra money?
#16
How much does this weigh?

Hi

Ive just tried to order one of these for collection, and I dont see anywhere to enter the 6400 code to bring the price down?

Do I have to quote the code in store?

Picked one up for my Wife and I must admit - its pretty nippy. 4.6 Experience score.

Integrated graphics puts me off to be honest, plus I'm trying to stick to a £350 budget if I can.

None as 32bit Os can address upto around 4gb but you wont see all that but with 3gb its no issue as all of that will show up, why stupid comments about it being only 32bit are being posted is totally beyond me as the people making these posts wouldnt know the difference between 32 and 64bit OS's anyway if they had under 3gb of memory and it certainly wont affect performance in everyday home use on a normal laptop or desktop

A 32 bit processor is faster than a 64 bit processor, 64 bit processors are very commonly used that you can find it easily in any home pc but the main difference is the hardware you are having on your machine. For 32 bits there isn’t any need of any wide main bus to carry 32 bits at a time but for 64 bits its must that you should have a wider bus to carry 64bits.

The main difference between a 32 bit and 64 is that 32 bit system has 4gb(gigabytes) of space for addressing means that the 32 bit system has a limit of 4GB RAM to process data where as the 64 bit operating system has 2^64 bits of space to address and supports 16 hexabytes of RAM to process data. or 128gb for the people that made the posts about x64 OS's

Agreed, in most cases I actually use the x86 version of an OS anyway because x64 is only really meant for powerhouses and in the case of Windows the x64 version can sometimes be a real pain to deal with in terms of compatibility and non-system user acces rights.

Well said i use x86 on my laptop as there's no need for x64 as it doesn't have 4gb of memory even though the CPU is capable but on my i5 desktop i use x64 as it has 8gb of memory and the x86 couldn't address it.

What i cant understand is why comments like that are made in the first place, this is a decent spec machine and the fact it has x86 windows on it means nothing i think the OEM would know what OS to put on there machines and as there's no reason to use x64 that's why they haven't and there would of been no extra cost. When you buy a retail copy of windows it comes with all versions meaning x86 and x64 and all versions of windows so there's no reason that you cant load x64 on and use the product key to activate the x64 version as its alright by Microsoft if you own the discs, you can choose either x86 or x64.

Absolutely, as I said earlier I am after a new laptop at the moment and if wasn't for the integrated video, I would be all over this deal, although it's also somewhat annoying that Comet will not offer free delivery to my address before 11th October, especially considering that I live in Central Manchester.
#31
Are these capabale of smoothly playing back 1080p mkv movie files?
#32
I thought the integrated chip on the i3 was the 5450 I will check.
#33
What's the battery life and build quality like on these please? Can't decide between this and an i3 insprion... ty
#34
Good Deal.
However if for any reason the laptop (under warranty) fails, and you have to deal with Samsung Customer Services be warned they are abysmal.

Bump :o

Looking for a really good battery life, with decent build (timeline seems flimsy) to actully use it mobile!

Dont like the build quality and some of the weak hinges on some of the stuff out there (ok if you wrap them in cotton wool!)

What the build and battery like on this? if not anyone no a good deal on something this a nice battery and build?

Thanks

Website shows battery life as 3 hours. Always amazes me how people can post a question on here when the answer is readily available on the deal website.
