Hi all

Just looking to buy a budget laptop. Have narrowed it down to a couple of Samsung models, but finding it hard to make the final call.

Looked at:

the 3 Series 3530EA (http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/samsun...91830-pdt.html) - £349

the RF511 (http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/samsun...84749-pdt.html) - £499

Only looking for something to handle internet use and low level document work.

Does anyone have experience of either of these models or thoughts on which is best?

Thanks

Your links don't work and the prices do not match at PC World unless you have already taken off the cash back. The difference appears to be the amount of RAM and size of hard drive.

The 511 has a better webcam. Nice if you use Skype. Also has USB 3

The 3 series has a "non-reflective" screen. Can be an advantage, if you want to use it outdoors, but some people don't like their non-reflectives, so worth actually check them in store, to ensure you're happy with it.

Other than above, main difference in RAM and HDD.

The 511 is better, overall. Whether it's £150 better ???
