Reviews for the Samsung QX411-W01
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
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.
