PCworld.co.uk delights us with an attractive offer on an attractive laptop. The Samsung Series 3 NP355V5C is a powerful 15.6-inch laptop aimed at users who want a little bit of everything, coming with an imposing configuration featuring an AMD A8-4500M processor with integrated graphics, 6GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive – all these for a price tag of £379.91.

Samsung Series 3 NP355V5C Overview

Samsung managed to surprize us with the NP355V5C right from the first second thanks to its elegant design. However, we were even more surprized with what was under the hood, as the NP355V5C is quite a little power beast. Responsible for this is the AMD A8-4500M – a quad-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz which can automatically boost itself up to 2.8GHz if needed, which is very impressive. The processor has another ace in its sleeve, coming with an integrated GPU, namely an AMD Radeon HD 7640G. Don’t let the term ‘integrated’ fool you, though, as the GPU is quite powerful, being able to outrank many older discrete GPUs, such as the GeForce 610M or the GeForce GT520M, making it a good pick for some light gaming.

The processor is not the only highlight of the Samsung NP355V5C; the laptop comes with 6GB of RAM that allows it to cope easily with multitasking. A really strong point of this machine is its 1TB hard drive, being spacious enough for even the most pretentious users. If that’s not enough, you can simply hook up an external hard drive via one of its high-speed USB 3.0 ports and expand its storage capacity even further. A HDMI port is also present if you want to switch to a bigger screen, such as an external monitor or a HD TV.

Last but not least, the Samsung NP355V5C comes with Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8, but we’ll let you discover what’s that all about.
