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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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).

Intel Core i3:

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.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

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


2.4 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.4 kg:


74%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
