Samsung R420

 

The 14-inch Samsung R420 has a nice all-black exterior that doesn't attract fingerprints. It also offers pretty good performance.

Nice, matte exterior ; All-black design ; Good performance

Mediocre battery life ; Average feature set

The Samsung R420's a nice 14-inch laptop with an all-black, non-glossy exterior. It offers good performance, but has some chinks in its feature set and has mediocre battery life.
