Samsung R580 Notebook
Mobile computing is no longer the exception; it is the norm. It used to be that people had a desktop system as their primary computer, and perhaps a notebook for travel or business, or maybe even school if you had the money. It is an entirely different story nowadays, as notebooks are the de facto standard for these users. It is commonplace to see notebooks in classrooms on campus, in airports, in a hotel lobby.
The market for mobile computers, and specifically notebooks, is not only large but also very competitive. A handful of companies tend to dominate the marketplace, and it isn’t easy to break into that market. Frankly, it would take an industry heavyweight. And that’s exactly what we’re seeing now from Samsung. A computing and technological behemoth, Samsung is relatively new to the mobile computing market, and looking to make a splash with their R580 notebook.
Packing an Intel Core i5 processor, discrete graphics card, and some gorgeous styling, the R580 is positioned as an all-around mobile system with a respectable price tag. But is Samsung’s jump into this tough industry segment successful? Let’s have a look at the Samsung R580 and see how this notebook fares.
