Review Samsung Series 4 400B5C-H02DE Notebook

 

The alternative? If you are looking for a business notebook, Sams

Good application performance; Long battery life; Excellent keyboard; Very good workmanship; Built-in UMTS; Various interfaces; Minimal noise level

Low display resolution; Limited range of models; No DisplayPort

Similar professional models are offered by HP (ProBook 6570b), Dell (Latitude E6530), Lenovo (ThinkPad T530) and Toshiba (Tecra R950).

Samsung NP400B5C-A01UK

 

Sensibly priced and has a CD/DVD RW drive! You can pay three times as much for a "business" laptop to get that drive. Big screen. Comes with Windows 7 not the tablet oriented Windows 8

None seen so far.
