Reviews for the Samsung 300V5A-A03US
Source: Comp Reviews Archive.org version
Samsung's 15-inch Series 3 budget model sets itself apart is a few areas, but there are enough minor issues with it that it fails to rise above an average laptop priced at $600. The big problem with it is the overall feel and the plastics used in the case just feel cheap. This mars what is in some ways an above average system thanks to its nice keyboard and trackpad as well as Bluetooth capability.
