Reviews for the Samsung QX412-S01DE
Sneaker. Without a drum roll or any clamour from the market, a familiar face sneaks into the virtual shelves in a larger form factor. The 14-incher combines the best materials and potent performance with perfect ergonomics and battery life. Is it the jack of all trades device?

NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M: Entry level graphics card based on the new GF119 chip with a 64 Bit memory bus or on the GF108 with 128 Bit memory bus but lower clock rates.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact.
In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
