Samsung 305U1A review


Netbooks have all but disappeared from store shelves, but one or two manufacturers have refused to give up on them just yet. Samsung's 305U1A is one such laptop, and it uses an AMD Fusion APU to power its diminutive 11.6in chassis.

Only suitable if you need a compact laptop; you can get better performance and battery life elsewhere

Cool laptop to have, a very good buy


The specs are good and so is the performance. The battery life is very good. Wifi reception a bit away from router could have been better, compared to some other laptops. Its lightweight, and very easy to carry. Flipkart delivery has been great too....
