    I’m aware of Samsung’s announcement of the debut of these notebooks. The Samsung R440 has nice specs but its pricetag of Php 39,990 is a bit expensive for me. I would rather buy Dell, Asus or Acer notebook with the same specs.

    The price is really close enough with the US one.. Dell, well, I won’t say Anything..

    The prices are quite good cmopared to acer and Asus.. remember that the GT 330 is a little faster than ATI 5470 that ACer and Asus has for a lower price..

  6. Vance says:

    and Samsung is brand! like the Sony line.. You don’t pay for the specs but you pay for the brand!

  7. Paul says:

    55k for the Core i5 + Geforce GT 330M build? Yeah, it’s expensive… but worth it especially if you’re comparing it with other premium hardware like Apple.

    At 13-inch white macbook prices you get something similar to 15-inch macbook pro internals.
