Review Samsung QX310 Subnotebook

 

Compact but Packs a Wallop This Samsung 13" netbook fuses the power of a Core i5 460M with a 4.5 hour battery life and impressive efficiency. Even the DVD drive doesn't get left out on account of a modern cooling system.

Keyboard Keys Press In Too Easily, Highly Reflective TFT Display, Low TFT Brightness, Low Contrast, No eSATA / USB 3.0
