Reviews for the Samsung 300U1A-A01

Samsung Series 3 11.6″ Notebook Review
Source: English
Samsung released the Samsung Series 3 notebook before the Ultrabook craze hit. I’d rather have one of those, but at two to three times the price budget buyers get a great deal. For the mobile-minded user who wants a decent computer without paying Apple prices, the Samsung Series 3 is a good option. If you like what you saw you might want to compare it to the HP 3115M or the Gateway NV55S05U.

70% Samsung Series 3 (11.6-inch)

Few laptops garnered as much virtual ink at CES 2011 as the Samsung Series 9, a slim, slick 13-inch laptop positioned as a Windows alternative to the MacBook Air. Later came an 11-inch version, but both were priced well over $1,000, putting them out of reach for most laptop shoppers. Samsung's sharp designs translate well to this more affordable new line, although the Series 3 is still at the high end of the ultraportable price range.

If your prime concerns are battery-life and performance you would do best to pass on the Samsung 300U1A-A01 and take a look at a better performing laptop, like the Editors' Choice Toshiba Portege R835-P50X. But if you want a small laptop that's portable and stylish, you might find that the Samsung 300U1A-A01 catches your eye.
