Samsung Q35 Review

 

The Samsung NP-Q35 just about fits into the ultra-portable category, coming in at under 1.9kg (4lb 2.5oz) including the optical drive. Apart from the battery protruding at the back, this notebook is the size of a sheet of A4 paper. The Q35 was...

Samsung - Q35

 

The Q35 may be the bigger sibling of Samsung's diminutive ultraportable notebook, the Q30, but weighing in at just 1.89kg it can still claim to be a lightweight and should pose few problems for anyone wanting ...

Stylish and well built, the Q35 combines everything you need in an ultraportable notebook; light weight, good battery life and - especially in the choice of CPU - excellent performance. Add in the reasonable price tag and you have a capable, mobile...
