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…...

Compare other laptops that I owned before, it is best either price or features. I was reaching for brighter color and ultra-thin style. But the price, performance and feathures of SF310-S01US attracted my eye ball. I'd like to say, I made right choice....

Decent Performer with minor flaws


First off, the spec on this unit is incorrect because Samsung provided the wrong information. Maximum memory supported is 6GB as 2GB memory is soldered on the motherboard and only one slot is available. 6GB is available when a 4GB SODIMM memory is put...

Great Value


After thorough research, this machine turned out to be the best i5 laptop on the market (with an automatic $50 off). There are no other i5s that I could find with a non-integrated graphics card anywhere in the below $700 price range. The Samsung Fast...

Fast and Performant


I am so happy with my choice; this computer is perfect for personal and professional use. The battery life is not the best; anything else is exactly as I expected.

Best notebook I have ever bought!


I have 5 HP notebooks and 3 HP desktops, so I was a little bit hesitant to buy this one (Samsung). I needed a 13.3'' to carry around that had a separate nvidia card for my 3d modeling program. This notebook has it all. I cannot find a feature that I...
