The Samsung QX411-W01 is beautifully made inside and out. Its only detraction is that it's more expensive than most mainstream laptops in its class. The moderate premium you pay, however, is for top-notch battery life, an elegant and sturdy design, and pretty good gaming performance. If you want a better overall value, with the fewest compromises, the Asus U46E-BAL5 is our pick in this class.

Samsung QX411 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
One area where the Samsung QX411 shines is battery life – it offers a full 6 hours of moderate use, although Samsung has decided to make the battery non-removeable, which certainly makes extending the standard 12-month battery-and-all warranty advisable. It isn’t without its faults, and the webcam is a bit of a joke, but the Samsung QX411 is one of the best-priced notebooks around.

Roughly a year ago, I reviewed the Samsung QX410-J01, a new and exciting laptop by a relative outsider. For a full set of features in a Core i5 laptop in the $600 range, it's extremely hard to beat the Samsung QX411-W01UB, which stands out for its great keyboard and impressive extras.

The Samsung QX411-W01 is a beautifully constructed mainstream laptop. This revision sheds the Nvidia graphics system in order to lower its price by $200, but supplements it with a speedier Core i5 processor. The clicking touchpad can be maddening to use at times, although this isn't news to the QX series. It's a solid system and priced accordingly, but the Dell Inspiron 14z (Core i5) uses similar parts and comes with a better clickpad experience and a backlit keyboard.

Samsung reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M: Based on the GeForce GT 425M with slightly higher core clock speeds.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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


Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.

2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.3 kg:


73.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
