Samsung NP355E5X-A02IN is a sleeky and smartly designed laptop which comes in two colors - Titan silver and black color body. It is packed with some notably good features. It sports a very decent webcam for capturing memorable webcam photos and video chatting and also to stay connected with friends and family always. It is a low budget laptop so the price is much less compared with normal budget laptops. However, low price here doesn't mean compromising with configuration and quality in any means.
I bought it for my grandfather, for mostly accounting work using Tally ERP.Since i did all the installation of OS and all, i did get a chance to test the system.The system performs well, is fast enough for a normal user/ms office and other tasks. BR movies play smoothly in VLC.For all the programmers out there, this is a boon. A 15.6" under 19000 (i bought it in 18450). I installed Visual Studio 2012 and along with that, SQL Management Studio, and run them simultaneously. Since these two softwares are huge as far as memory and processing is concerned, the system showed a decent performance. In short, i did not have to wait while building the projects in VS2010.If in case you need more multitasking, you can add another DDR3 RAM in the empty slot, and it would be a cheap yet powerful upgrade. This comes with DOS, so you save about 5 grands for the OS. I installed Win 7 Ultimate........without spending that 5 grand......you know what i mean. ;)If you don't do much gaming and extensive image or video editing, go for this one. It also comes with dedicated ATI graphics of approx 348 MB. So thats cool.
Pros: Great build quality for the price. Doesn't look cheap by any standards. The trackpad and the keyboard are quite sturdy. Overall great feelCons: Within the first 30 minutes of using the machine I realized how horrible its performance was. It feels like you are using a 5 year old system. Installing windows took me over 2 hours! As soon as I start opening a couple of applications, it starts freezing.Overall: Don't cheap out. Spend a couple of more thousand bucks and get a i3 or i5 system. Its much more than worth it.
