Background and Identification ¶
The Samsung NP300E5C is a medium sized laptop that was released in September 2012. It has a diagonal screen size of 15.6" and a weight of 5.07 lbs. This device includes a 500GB system memory, 4GB of RAM, an Intel chipset that includes an integrated graphics card, and an i5 processor that runs at 2.4GHz. Furthermore, upgrading the device components is not possible as additional space is not available. In order to upgrade, disassembly of the laptop and a new case would be required. However, the inclusion of a 1.3 MP camera, numeric keypad, integrated microphone, bluetooth, and Wi-Fi help buffer this downfall. Lastly, the battery is a 6 cell lithium ion battery that runs at 48 Watt-hours (Wh.)
There are three variations of the series 3 with two visible difference between these models. One difference is the serial number on the bottom of the device on a grey sticker. The second and easiest to identify difference is the size. Measured by diagonal screen size, the largest is 17.3", the smallest is 11.6", and in between is the Samsung NP300E5C which comes in at 15.6". The full dimensions of the NP300E5C are 14.4" x 9.5" x 1.14" (LxWxH) while closed.
