Reviews for the Samsung Q30 Plus

80% An ultraportable notebook that's got style, but not for those after performance
Source: vnunet.com English
Samsung's updated version of the Q30, internally badged the Q30+, but still available on its website as the Q30 Red, adds extra processing power and the 915GM chipset to this super-slim, ultra light notebook. It is aimed at people who don't want to carry around a heavy machine, but want enough power for office tasks and decent battery life. To gauge its performance and portability, we've been road-testing the notebook for several months, including two international trips.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility.

1 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.

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.
