£316 Samsung NP355V5C laptop with Windows 8 and 1TB hard drive

Samsung has chosen AMD to power its Series 3 NP355V5C-A03UK laptop, a mainstream model that is currently on sale at Morgancomputers' eBay outlet.

That particular model costs £316, comes with free delivery, 315 Nectar points, a year's warranty and is a refurbished model. It is an evolution of the NP305V5A we saw a while back from Ebuyer.

The laptop runs on AMD A8-4500M APU, one with four cores clocked at 1.9GHz with 4MB cache, with an integrated AMD Radeon HD7640G GPU, sharing system memory with the CPU.

There's a dedicated numeric keypad, Windows 8, an impressive 8GB of RAM (although the description mentions 6GB), a 1TB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, a 15.6in matte, antireflective screen with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution enhanced by Samsung's innovative Image Enhanced Engine software, a webcam, a 6-cell 48Whr battery and an island-style keyboard.

Connectivity includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, Wi-Fi, four USB ports (including two USB 3.0), VGA, HDMI and a card reader. The laptop is 33mm thick and weighs only 2.5Kg.
