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.

Stunning Ultrabook

I was looking for one of those rare beasts: an ultrabook with discrete graphics and a full HD screen. This was the best fit for my needs. The Radeon 8570M performs comfortably with all the games I have played on it, and the i5 ULV processor is nice and fast.

Lovely screen and great portability. My favourite ever laptop.

Reliable Great Looking Work Horse

I`ve had this laptop for just about a year. Everything about it is great from the long battery life to the seemless processor. It has never failed meor given me any issues.

The speakers are loud and the full hd is great.I use this laptop for both college and work its extremely light and the touch screen makes scrolling down and enlarging things so much quicker. Keep it up Samsung

Not a premium laptop

It is a great machine until it breaks which is likely to happen considering poor materials it is built with. Samsung UK only gives 12 months warrantyand that says all.

In my case plastics around keys came off, top lid unglued from the hinge and a couple of weeks past said warranty hinge snapped on the right side. Service centre said it is unlikely my fault which is correct as I treat all my equipment with respect. Sticker on this laptop says "Samsung Premium". Only premium thing about this laptop was its price. Definitely not recommended.
