Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Only drawback is Windows 8, otherwise I love my NP550PC

Running Windows 7 virtual machine in 2nd partition, No touchscreen on mine, but use bluetooth mouse, speakers, headset all the time. JBL audio builtin provides very nice sound, and the GT630 lets me do a bit of my Rail Sim gaming.

Otherwise its work all the way.

I am loving the touch screen

The touch screen feature is a great addition. The physical keyboard was not a full keyboard but I found the touch screen keyboard with the numericalkey pad for quick numerical entry.

I now use it all the time. This puppy loads profiles fast. And it is thin, we plan on taking it with us on our vacation.

Great features but squeaky keys

This is a nice laptop with a lot of great features including the speakers, matte screen and fast boot up. Unfortunately, I will probably return it tothe store because of a squeaky keyboard.

The space bar chirps like a cricket every time you tap it. This is very disappointing since I like everything else about it. I don't feel like sending a brand new computer for service and to be without it for over a month.
