Samsung Q210 12.1in Centrino 2 Notebook


It's all shiny and new and it has Centrino 2, is it time to get your credit card out?

Despite some questionable design decisions, the Samsung Q210 continues Samsung's legacy of well balanced and affordable portable laptops thanks to excellent battery life and application performance at a price that won't break the bank.

Samsung Q210


It isn't often we find ourselves genuinely excited by the prospect of a budget laptop, but Samsung's Q210 is one decidedly cute exception to the rule.

A 12.1in ultraportable with a budget laptop price tag, Samsung's Q210 is a handy-sized delight.

Samsung Q210


Samsung's kitted out the Q210 ntebook with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz processor, an NVIDIA GeForce Go 9200M graphics card, a 320GB hard drive, support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, a DVD drive, three USB ports and one HDMI port. All that and a 12.1-inch...

Some one should tell Samsung small laptops don't need to be this fast. If you travel and need something powerful and portable this will suit you admirably. Sure, the screen is small but it's usable and the knockout battery life means you'll be using it...

Samsung - NP Q210


Samsung's latest 12.1-inch notebook, the NP-Q210 (NP-Q210-AS02UK), is also the first true Centrino 2 model we have seen. Centrino 2 (codename Montevina) is Intel's delayed evolution of the original Centrino technology, featuring a new line-up of ...

Samsung's replacement for the popular Q45, the Q210 shows off Intel's new techology nicely and is a well equipped and performing notebook. And who knows, you just may get to like the 'touch of red'.

Samsung's first Centrino 2 laptop is a 12in portable beauty. But is Matthew Sparkes suitably impressed?

Samsung Q210


The Q210 is the successor to the Q70.

One very interesting feature of this laptop is the CD/DVD writer. Like any normal writer you can burn a disc but the interesting part about this writer is what you can do with the other side of the CD or DVD. This writer uses HP Lightscribe technology...

The only down fall with paying the extra ₤50 or so is the look of the laptop. The red rim looks as if Samsung got bored or ran out of the amazingly glossy black paint they used on the Q70

The Q210 weighs in just under 2kg, comes with a 12.1” display, 4GB of RAM, a DVD Super Multi Dual Layer with Lightscribe, 3 USB ports, Ethernet, D-Sub ports, HDMI, Bluetooth, wireless and an ExpressCard slot and the battery lasts about 6 hours all for...

Samsung Q210 laptop


After looking through many reviews of 12.1 inch laptops I decided on the little Q210 laptop from Samsung. My budget was a 1000$ which fit this perfectly. I was looking for a laptop that could play games, be great for travelling and with a crisp nice...
