"We are less forgiving about its very poor showing of 2hrs 1 minute in our MobileMark battery life test. This isn't an aspect that Samsung should have scrimped on and we were not impressed. The Samsung R610-AS01UK packs a dedicated graphics card in the shape of an nVidia 9200M GS, and even includes 512MB of video RAM which should assist in high-resolution playback. In our FEAR 3D graphics test it achieved an average frame rate of 16fps, which means you'll need to lower your expectations and detail settings to play the latest games.
Well finished and very well specified, the Samsung R610-AS01UK is a promising laptop for all-round use, and the nearest thing to a favourite on test. We would have liked to have seen useful battery life though."
