If they dont release 1600*900 for 15" in the US, I am pretty damn sure it wont be 1600*900 in India :p

Anyway I hope its 1600*900. Maybe a surprise awaits me on tuesday :cool:

Samsung is an asian brand not american like apple, hp and dell. They desperately want good market in devloping countries like our India.
See, unlocked samsung phones cost more in US than India.

I agree. And its a matt screen of amazing brightness

It is same like camera is judged by its sensor not megapixels.

Checked out a few pics of this on a website. I'm glad i didn't chose this one. It looked ugly and doesn't have a backlit keyboard. Love my dell 15r se. Cant wait for it to arrive.

Stop trolling in this thread. This laptop has is almost 20-25% better GPU and much better screen and speakers than yours at same price. You can't say ugly just because it has no backlit keyboard.

Since when giving ones view is considered as trolling. It comes down to preference. I didn't picked the 650m version of inspiron cuz backlit was deal breaker. Between samsung and 17r I'd definitely pick 17r just cuz it looks better and has a bigger screen. I wish samnsung had spent a tiny bit more time in designing. Then this would have been a killer machine.

This laptop is very nicely designed, slim bazel screen, much thinner body and weighs much less than dell laptops. Samsung 550p 15.6" model weighs just 2.5kg. I don't think anyone would say its ugly. It's okay if you don't like design, its your point of view.

hey, 17r se is just too big to carry around...15 inch is much more manageable...
and we get a budget option for 50k...why would you go to 17r se and pay 14k more? also, samsung gpu is already factory overclocked gt650mx(for new forum members, read the "All laptop Inquiries Here" thread)

Even stock speed will run so many games at high fps on 1366x768 which is the resolution i will play games in even if the screen can go to 1600x900 maximum...

Samsung's the one for me!!!:lol::-D:-D:-D:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::lol:

Is it true that this laptop has three ram slots and two hard disc drive areas?

Skullcandy is brand for earphones and docks, it is maybe their first attempt in laptop or any speakers. These samsung laptops are with in-built JBL mini sub-woofer too. I guarantee the sound will be brilliant.

Yes, 17R SE is pain to carry around, weighs 3.4kg, so big no for mobility.. it is desktop replacing laptop not that laptop that can we put in our laps/thighs. Wait for the proper review by har. Not sure, there is any kinda GPU named GT 650MX, in other countries it is just GT 650M 2GB DDR3.

It's going to take some time for me to get my own laptop anyway...My college hasn't started yet and my parents told me that they would buy it after a month or two...sometimes these things get stolen...:|:|

Come on guys !! You cant say skullcandy is better or JBL is better just by hearing their names can you.

FACT 1:dell has its speakers in the bottom. Reviews agree sound does get muffled. Whereas samsung has them on top. Notebookcheck(the best reviews) said the sound of the samsung was totally amazing. Its one of its main +ve points. Sound fills the entire room and doesnt distort even at high volumes. And they say the design is understated but good and build is good.

FACT 2:Funnily Anandtech reviewed the Acer Aspire V3(same specs as inspiron 15r se) and suggested it over inspiron 15r se because of its bad build quality !! Dont look at pics and say Samsung is ugly because Dell has chosen the 90's old school design for inspiron. And you dont want to read comments by people regarding its design in engadget,anandtech,etc

Think I am trolling ?? Google will help you. I can even give you the links to validate each and every point above.

So Guys Which is better??
GT 650MX DDR3 or GT7730M DDR5??
Gpu of Samsung 550P and Dell Inspiron 15R SE

Samsung around 25% better I guess.
7730m=3dmark06=9200-9500
gt650m=3dmark06=12500-13500

You can see gaming fps and other comparisons at these two links:

UPDATE: The dealer says the model I ordered is GT650M but it has 1GB video memory not 2GB. How's that possible ? Maybe its 1GB DDR5 :D Tuesday will answer everything.

Keep Going!

ha ha..if its for looks 15r se is really ugly looking plastic bezel with small keypad and a large palm rest...that is the reason i dropped the idea of buying se despite of its specs after seeing it at the showroom. the regular 15r looks great but not specs...
definitely samsung looks better..

Even I was planning to buy 15R SE and was compromising with the looks. BTW whats wrong with SAMSUNG design.... if its not tht sexy,.... it ain't look bad though. Its gud to have beasty features inside which I think it is having...!!!


HAR >> man thts a lil blow 650M 1 GB only (iff it is so :|)
