A solid, dependable and durable laptop, the Q530 will do everything you ask of it, but there are better deals to be had.

The 15.6-inch Samsung Q530 is essentially the big brother of the impressive 13.3-inch Q330. This larger laptop retains the slick styling of its £600 sibling but, at around £750, offers considerably more screen real estate. There's plenty to like about the Samsung Q530. It has a sexy design, well-balanced specification and decent battery life. Overall, though, it's not quite as an impressive as the smaller Q330.

After being suitably impressed by the baby of the Q Series from Samsung, the Q330, we were keen to see how the head of the family, the Q530, performed. A large, well-designed and reasonably fast machine, the Q530 is likely to appeal to those after a desktop replacement. But the office is very much where the device will stay given its size and battery life, and we can see many business users opting for the smaller and cheaper Q330 instead.

Comment

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 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.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
