Reviews for the Samsung Q330-JA04UK
We gave the 13.3-inch Samsung Q330 an extensive going-over in August last year. But Samsung's been kind enough to send us over a new version, with a slightly more powerful Intel Core i3-370M processor. The latest Samsung Q330 has a slightly more powerful processor and a tweaked design. Overall, this 13.3-inch laptop is still great, but rival machines offer better graphics performance.

The Samsung Q330 doesn't have many business-specific features, but it does have reasonably long battery life, good Windows performance and a comfortable keyboard and touchpad at an inexpensive price. Although there are ultra-portable laptops with built-in DVD drives that have even longer lasting batteries, they won't be as inexpensive as the Q330. It's a great value laptop.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
