The Samsung SF310 is the kind of compromise we’re happy to make. You could certainly improve on it (and not just with a touchpad that didn't jump around like a nervous cat). Nvidia's Optimus graphics do an excellent job of combining power and power efficiency, the Core i5 is a workhorse processor and we like the fast startup. There are more powerful systems, there are notebooks with a better screen or sound system, there are ultraportables with longer battery life - but there aren't many notebooks with this combination of style, performance and battery life at this price

The SF310 comes with impressive specifications and an excellent keyboard, but is ultimately let down by a fiddly trackpad. With a weight over 2kg and a battery that can't be swapped out, it is unlikely to endear itself to the business traveller

Although the Samsung SF310 notebook appears largely unexceptionable when it comes to styling, display and peripherals, it nevertheless packs a sizeable CPU punch, and its dual role graphics system and good battery life will ensure it finds plenty of friends.

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.

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 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.
