The deal: Samsung RC530-S08AU - 2nd Gen Core i7 allrounder with large HDD - $949.00
For $949 the 15.6in Samsung RC530-S08AU is a good high-end allrounder that’s very competitively priced and specced. In addition to a fast mid-range dedicated graphics card and a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7, the RC530 includes a 750GB hard disk drive that’s significantly larger than anything you’d normally find in this price range.
The 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2630QM (2GHz) powering the RC530 can speed up to 2.9GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology, which is handy if you need the extra power for a single high intensity program. There’s also 4GB of RAM which allows for smooth multi-tasking.
For gaming there’s an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M dedicated graphics card that can play newer games like Portal 2 on high settings on the 15.6in (1,366x768 resolution) screen. The RC530 weighs 2.6kg, a bit above average when you look at what other allrounders are available.
