Reviews for the Samsung Q1EX-71G
Source: Laptop Mag
The $749 Samsung Q1EX-71G won’t attract consumers and mobile professionals due to its high price (relative to netbooks). But does it have enough appeal for vertical markets? We like the 7-inch touchscreen, especially when used with the stylus, the optional dock/keyboard is innovative, and the performance offered by the VIA processor is acceptable, even though the hard drive is slow. The Q1EX is more compelling in some ways than its predecessors, but entering text on the go is too much of a challenge without an integrated keyboard, and we highly recommend upgrading to the six-cell battery if you want to get more than 2 hours of work done unplugged. The bottom line is that the Q1EX is fine for workers who do little to no content creation. But you have to be willing to live with its limited functionality and endurance.

VIA Chrome9 HC: The integrated graphic card (shared memory) VIA Chrome9 HC IGP is found on the VN896 chipset for notebooks and provides DirectX 9 suport and video acceleration. Windows Vista Aero is possible but only with some stutterings.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
VIA Nano: The Nano is the successor of the outaged VIA C7 and the direct competitor of the Intel Atom. In contrast to the Atom the Nano is able to perform orders by "out-of-order" (re-sort itself e.g. like the Celeron M series). Fruther it can accomplish 3 orders by clock (Core about 4, Atom 2). By the C6 state, the processor should save much energy in the idle mode and therefore only needs 0.1-0.5 Watts (TDP 5-25 Watts).

7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.6 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
