Top performance considering it is a subnotebook; Good price performance ratio; High-quality keyboard; Relatively quiet; Nice looking design

but, sensible glossy display cover; Reflecting display; Moderate Workmanship

Of course also the office performance is very good and makes working without delays possible

Samsung Q45 Review


The Samsung Q45 is a 12.1" ultraportable notebook is a budget priced system that still manages to pack impressive performance and features into a relatively small footprint. Based around Intel's Core 2 Duo Santa Rosa platform and featuring Intel X3100...

Very quiet ; Long battery life ; Relatively lightweight ; Sober and elegant styling

Quite heavy for the size of screen/versus other ultraportables ; Awkward keyboard arrangement ; Heat vent on right hand side ; Shiny lid may become scratched

The Samsung Q45 is easily one of the most cost-effective ultraportable computers available, and pretty much the only one similar for less than ’,000. The specifications are ideal for the tasks it will perform,  and complement the very good battery life...

Samsung Q45 laptop


Samsung continues to overhaul its notebook range with the Q45. This is a lightweight entry-level machine that uses its new Aura design, which includes a piano-lacquer style of finish. This gives the Q45 a great look that is highly reflective but it...

Great value, long-life battery

Poor keyboard, grainy screen

The Samsung Q45 is something of a mixed bag, as the performance and battery life are more than appealing, especially at this price point and make it easy to recommend.

Samsung Q45


The latest in Samsung's Q range of small laptops is, on the face of it, a very appealing prospect. Outwardly, its minimalist 'piano black' casing gives it what most users would class as an enviable, even chic, appearance

Great value for money, Good display

Poor sound, Nothing to get excited about

Reasonably good in most areas, and good value too, but don't expect to fall in love

Andy takes a look the latest version of the Samsung Q45 to see if it's still one of the best, affordable and fully featured portable laptops around.

Samsung's Q45 stands apart from the rest of the laptops in this group, with a design that's suited to a life in the great outdoors.

Samsung Q45


Samsung updates the Q35 for Santa Rosa, and calls it the Q45. Does it match the excellence of its predecessor?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Samsung has already managed great things with the Q35, and the Q45 only continues that trend. It isn't the most complete Santa Rosa notebook out there, but at this price it hardly matters.

With the Q45 Samsung has another winner on its hands. The combination of the latest technology, features and price tag make it a business laptop that's hard to ignore.
