Reviews for the Samsung Q430-11
Source: Computer Shopper
These are truly renaissance days for the thin-and-light laptop, with a wealth of superior models at very moderate prices. Samsung is trying to make a name for itself in this very competitive segment of the U.S. laptop market, and entries like its Q430-11 should certainly help. The Q430-11 offers close to the best performance we’ve seen from a sub-$1,000 thin-and-light. Battery life could be better, but overall, this is a strong choice for anyone looking for a fast portable.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
