Samsung makes great laptops at great prices. A friend of mine has one and Windows 7 has some issues and clearly needed to be reinstalled but he has talked about Windows 8 for a while so I told him I would let him use a copy of mine to check out. Here is how to install Windows 8 on Samsung RV511.
It is very easy to install Windows 8 on Samsung RV511. For this test I did a clean install keeping nothing but you could do an upgrade install keeping all your programs, files, and settings. After the install was complete I ran Windows Update to install all updates. I only had one driver missing for the Intel WiMax. You can download the Intel Centrino WiMax 6250 Driver from Intel’s website. Once you install that you should have a clean Device Manager.
So how does Windows 8 perform on the Samsung RV511, well actually really well. Windows 8 just makes this machine up and makes it fly I really suggest the upgrade. You can also install and use Hyper-V 3.0 on this machine making the upgrade very attractive. I ran the PassMark Performance Test and this machine got a 652.8 and below you can see the Windows Experience Index.
This is one of those upgrades that is a no brainer. I highly suggest you install Windows 8 on Samsung RV511 it makes a great machine even better.
