15 Reasons For
Samsung Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews
Notebook PCs manufactured by Samsung generally have good ratings compared to other brands.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
The NP540U3C has one of the bigger maximum internal memory supported by processors (32 gigabytes) amongst laptops of this age. Notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the NP540U3C have maximum internal memory supported by processors of between 8GB and 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 24GB.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the NP540U3C is 200MHz and the fastest is 650MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 350 megahertz, the Samsung NP540U3C has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other ultrabooks that came out around the same time as the NP540U3C.
Has a Front Camera
The NP540U3C has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The NP540U3C supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most comparable spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago. This portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most laptops of this spec and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all portable PCs of this age and spec.
A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst similar types of portable PC.
Quite Big Internal Memory
Across all the similar spec laptops that have been around for more than two years the internal memory range from 4GB to 16GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Samsung NP540U3C has one of the bigger internal memory amongst portable PCs of this age.
+10 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on notebook PCs of this spec and age. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
L3 Processor Cache
This portable PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
Unlike most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the NP540U3C which do not have a touch sensitive screen, the Samsung NP540U3C has a touch sensitive screen.
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The NP540U3C is a two USB 2.0 port laptop.
Fairly High Speaker Power
The lowest speaker power of ultrabooks that are a comparable age to the NP540U3C is 1W, the highest is 4W, and the average speaker power is 1.7W. The Samsung NP540U3C has one of the higher speaker power (2 Watts) amongst portable PCs of this age.
Very Big Battery Capacity
Across all the ultrabooks that were released around the same time as the NP540U3C the battery capacities range from 44mAh to 7,300mAh. When compared to other ultrabooks that came out around the same time as the NP540U3C, the NP540U3C's battery capacity of 6,890 milliamperes * hour is one of the biggest.
802.11g WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on notebook PCs that were released around the same time as it.
Quite Big Battery Capacity
The average battery capacity of ultrabooks that came out more than two years ago is 46Wh, and the battery capacities range from 23Wh to 70Wh. With a battery capacity of 52 watt-hours, the NP540U3C has a quite big battery capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age.
At only 315.1 millimeters, the NP540U3C is quite narrow compared to most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the NP540U3C. Across all the notebook PCs of this spec and age the widths range from 280mm to 390mm.
9 Reasons Against
