Reviews for the Samsung QX411-W01UB
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.
