The Samsung NP350V5C-T02US from the company’s inexpensive Series 3 laptop lineup isn’t a cheap machine since it has a price of $680. However, it’s well optimized not only for the basic computing tasks but also for resource-heavy applications or multimedia, thanks to the latest Intel Core i5-3210M processor and graphics muscle of the AMD Radeon HD 7730M 2GB. In the chart below, you can see how the i5 stacks up against the other parts, but unfortunately we have no such info for the 7730M. One can expect the GPU to be certainly slower than the 7750M. In general, it’s a lower-end dedicated graphics, but at least it has it’s own memory so it doesn’t take up the main RAM.
The laptop comes with 6GB of RAM, a 500GB HDD and DVD burner. The components are encased in a plastic chassis, with silver palm rest and black lid. The keyboard is black with isle-like keys, which are surrounded by glossy black plastics.
