The Samsung RC520 comes with the new generation Intel Core i5 Processor 2410M which clocks at 2.30GHz. With speed like this, you can expect to run a lot of resource intensive applications. In addition to that, its 6GB RAM would ensure that all programs would run smoothly without a glitch.

In addition to that, charging the laptop to its full capacity would take only an hour and a half at most.
