If i gave you the direct Samsung specs link, which clearly states the 540m GPU, why are you trusting info from site that clearly aren't giving you full detailed specs? When in doubt, contact them for full model info, i.e. NP-RF511-S01UK

Here is your Jonh Lewis Samsung Official specs link: Support for NP-RF511

That link you gave me, the model number of the John Lewis is NP-RF511-A01UK
The one that you linked to me, the model number is NP-RF511-S01UK

So, that could mean that they are different

Got till the 18th. I would prefer it coming before I start college 7 days. It says it takes at least 7-10 days delivery. I prefer buying straight from the manufacture, custom built as I trust it will in execllent quality

You could do that search specs wise yourself, like i've told you earlier. Plus, it's not so different from the Samsung RF511.

Btw, did you read my previous post?
