Samsung SF310

 

The sleek Samsung SF310 offers comfort and speed and looks good doing it, but the touchpad could be better.

For $729, the Samsung SF310 provides an attractive design, a comfortable keyboard, and relatively strong processing and graphics muscle for the price. The only real drawbacks are the somewhat flaky clickpad and the fact that it doesn't last as long on...

Samsung SF310

 

The SF310 has a full-sized chiclet-style keyboard; separated square tile keys with rounded corners. The keys themselves feel nice but when typing, they were mushy, providing very little resistance. I found this uncomfortable, but the feel of a keyboard...

Intel Core i5-480M processor. Nvidia GeForce 310M graphics with automatic switching. Lots of extra features, like Bluetooth 3.0, Sleep-and-Charge, and quick restarts. Good battery life

Covered ports are less accessible. Wimpy speakers. Middling performance. Internal battery can't be accessed or replaced by buyer. Small hard drive

Some buyers will be intrigued by features like Bluetooth 3.0, Sleep-and-Charge funcationality, and quick restarts, but more discerning buyers may shun the Samsung SF310 for its underutilized components and small hard drive.

Samsung SF310 video review – a stylish 13.3 incher in a bulky body

 

Managed to get my hands on the Samsung SF310 13.3 inch laptop these days, a device Samsung advertises as “thin and light” and you're going to find in the next rows my impressions on it and a p...

Still, if I were on the market for a 13.3 incher, I would for sure go for an Acer 3820TG (which is similarly priced) or try squeeze some extra bucks for the Asus U36J (or even one of those ultra-slim 13.3 Macbook Airs). But that's just what I would do…...

Samsung SF310/SF410 Laptop Review

 

Samsung introduced new SF series notebooks– Samsung SF310/SF410/SF510, these series laptops are beyond the current traditional design. Samsung SF310/SF410/SF510 added the maverick “golden arc” design and shared the curvy clamshell pattern. Samsung...

Samsung SF Series comes with li-ion batteries, which can effectively extend notebook battery life. Further more, Samsung SF Series also supports quick charge function, and the battery can be charged fully in 2-3 hours.

Great value and great performance

Samsung SF310-S02UK review

 

The first thing you notice about the Samsung SF310 isn't the 13.3-inch screen, the Core i5 processor, the nice complement of ports and features (including NVidia Optimus graphics and a DVD-RW drive), the excellent build quality or the battery life;...

A good keyboard, fast resume, great battery life, powerful processor with far-from-shabby graphics performance, those curves do make it stand out

Touchpad is a little small and is twitchy, the plethora of function keys are redundant and sometimes confusing, the screen and sound didn't blow us away

The Samsung SF310 is a little bit different, both in looks and in the mix of features. There are few high end features, but that means you get a pretty powerful system with good battery life at a mainstream price

Samsung's new thin and light is curvier than most, but can it marry performance and stamina with those seductive looks?

Subtle yet pleasing design ; Powerful processor performance ; Discrete, efficient graphics core ; Decent storage

Horrible touchpad ; Graphics aren't powerful enough ; Uninspiring battery life ; High price tag

Expert review by:

Samsung SF310

 

A uniquely curvy design and Nvidia's switchable Optimus graphics are but some of the highlights of this affordable 13.3in laptop.

Eye-catching curvaceous internal design ; Excellent battery life

Spongy keyboard ; Slightly uneven backlight ; It's a dust and fingerprint magnet

Smaller than the popular 15in notebook and larger than a netbook, the 13in-screen portable remains a favourite size for laptops. And it's certainly a crowded market at this size.

Samsung has puts its eggs into the performance basket, gifting the Samsung SF310 with a nippy dual-core processor. But this is at the expense of essential high-quality parts such as a decent trackpad. If outright speed tops your wishlist, or you fancy...

Samsung SF310 review

 

The 13.3-inch Samsung SF310 has a unique design and offers decent performance, but we don't think it does quite enough to justify its relatively high asking price.

Fast processor ; Good 3D performance ; Great design

Limited range of ports ; Horrible trackpad ; So-so battery life

The Samsung SF310 has an interesting design and plenty of processing power under the bonnet, but it's let down by its annoying trackpad and relatively short battery life. We also think it's a little expensive, especially compared to even thinner and...
