Samsung Q310 Notebook

Samsung has made notebook computers for a long time like samsung nc10, but until October 2008 were not available in the United States. This probably had more than a few people in the United States thought that Samsung has made laptops (apart from its UMPC, that is), but that all changed now that the electronics giant will enter the market with five different notebooks and their NC10 netbook. In this article we will look at the Q310, a 13.3-inch thin and light notebooks at $ 1250, was one of the most popular models from Samsung.

The design of the samsung Q310 is what you expect from a consumer notebooks around the $ 1300 mark. This means that it is usually made of plastic, but it seems stable enough to endure. There is a slight slowing of the cover display, but the area of the keyboard is stable and does not create the system usually much heat. There is an LCD display and stationary, while the hinges are not particularly strong, stirring display to a minimum. My biggest problem with the design is the border around the bottom half of the notebook, which should be more round. The right angle is not very convenient to put the forearms and against the two front corners are actually quite clean.

The widescreen display seems to fade somewhat, but is sufficiently bright, and 1280 × 800 is enough space for general use and productivity mild. In fact, the Q310, proves once again how the size of 13.3 inches an excellent compromise between usability and portability. The keyboard is generous in size command is so fast and accurate, though not everyone likes the softkeys. The main action is fast and shallow, so that the feeling of writing on a laptop even more pronounced. The trackpad is on the small side, but his work without any problems. Users will find that the inside of the notebook does not have extra buttons and volume controls to turn on everything from WiFi on / off switch is assigned by the double-Fn commands managed. It is hard to lose, lose big fonts for the character on the keyboard which is not a problem, elected, but looks a bit "strange.

A look at the Q310 we can see that Samsung is not trying to stir the water with the release of their notebooks. That is, they are using established formulas and price ranges with their product and then hope that the Samsung brand enough to convince people to take note. The Q310 uses a slick design, lots of shiny plastic, and even a touch of "color" that makes it very similar like a TV that Samsung, like the T260. Past that fact, a thin and light notebook, the consumer is competitive in all areas, but not revolutionary.

As the components have to our model, the Q310-34P with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 (2.26 GHz) processor, 3 GB RAM, 320 GB hard drive, Windows Vista Business and Intel GMA 4500 Nvidia graphics equipped integrated. Other features include Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, 1.3MP webcam, a dual-layer DVD burner with LightScribe, and / b / g / n WLAN. The 13.3-inch display runs at 1280 × 800 and it is a 6-cell battery. The overall package of measures 12.7 x 9.5 x 1,12-1,52 inches and weighs 4.4 kilograms (with battery)

Processor, hard disk performance and

The NC10 is designed for endurance, not speed, and is driven by the ubiquitous Intel Atom N270 CPU. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) rating of 2.5 W is much smaller than the 5.5 W of the Core Solo U1500 CPU and power consumption is less than 0.5 watts in low power states. The Intel data sheet shows an absolute voltage range between 0.75 and 1.10V. CPU-Z does not seem to read properly, but the tensions of the CPU-Z 1.40.5 former is much closer than the new version 1.49. I noticed a difference in energy consumption by about 2W between the total load on the CPU at 800MHz and 1.6GHz CPU load to text.

Battery, power supply and cooling

The power supply is small and light 40W (19V, 2.1A) Unit power cable of 1.8 m and has a power connector to 2 pin. The 2-Pins are thinner and lighter power cable network, which are travel-friendly. Power is based insignificant when the computer is off. samsung n110 review. There is no light on the power supply to prove it is power. While the 40W PSU is low in comparison with power supplies standard laptop, the 45W power supply comes with the G11, Sony is even smaller.

Keyboard and touchpad

Samsung NC10 presented the generous keyboard, but the compensation is a relatively small touchpad. The keyboard has a fairly standard design, including dedicated appreciated Pg Up and Pg Down keys. Ctrl is ranked almost standard on the left front (Samsung have changed this year from the insertion of Fn in the corner). There are 84 keys (83 keys on the U.S. keyboard), who clearly marks on a white background in black plastic. The keys are slightly smaller than 17.7 mm of normal height and is easy to adjust from a normal keyboard.

Ports and Features

In general, the ports are very well presented. There are ports at the rear. Samsung have avoided shaking ports so close that they interfere with each other for all the USB ports of three years can still be used. There are ports on the front right side where the cables are available in the form of a mouse. The exhaust fan is near the rear left side. Perhaps the omission of a team-oriented trip is a modem port, but USB modems are relatively inexpensive.

Take a tour of the sides of the front clockwise:

The front panel has indicator lights and the media card slot (with a filling plastic)
Left side from back to front: Power socket, network connection, hood, two USB 2.0 ports (Note 3 CD cases against the rear edge of the scale),
The back: Nothing, except two hinges and light battery
The front right side towards the rear audio ports, a USB port, VGA port and security slot.

Extreme Targeting mini notebook Samsung in Business

Although conscious status as a new player in the mini notebook realm Indonesia, Samsung somewhat overly self-confident. Unmitigated, extreme target them even have plugs.

It is said Budi Santoso, Head of IT Division of Samsung Electronics Indonesia, the company set to square off through the top three in the country mini notebook business until the end of this 2010.

"We have an extreme target as a new player. That is to be number three," umbarnya, the launch of Nokia N210 and N150 mini notebook at the Ritz Carlton, Tuesday (23/2/2010).

Samsung, continued Budi, realized the challenges that must be conquered to achieve their grandiose goal is so heavy. As a result, they also have a special strategy to win the competition.

"That is the strategy of 'highway'. Mendompleng One with another Samsung product success, we've had 12 product lines that have been popular in the community," she said to ITGazine.

In addition, still said Budi, Samsung try to play in terms of design, materials and components that are embedded in the mini notebook output. For example, in Indonesia's first mini notebook, the N210 uses the cover from acrylic materials and elegant design.

Samsung alone saw the mini laptop market potential in Indonesia is still fairly promising. Therefore, the longer people can not be separated from internet access. Well, the device typically used to connect to this virtual world is a mini notebook. So despite coming late, Ericsson is optimistic its netbook products still acceptable market.

Samsung also his Notebook Prepare for Indonesia

Samsung claims not want to go half-half to the PC industry of Indonesia. After releasing a netbook product, then turn the notebook range from giant South Korean electronics that are going out.

Thus confirmed Budi Santoso, Head of IT Division of Samsung Electronics in Indonesia to launch detikINET netbook Nokia N210 and N150 at the Ritz Carlton, Tuesday (23/2/2010).

According to him, Samsung already has a clear business portfolio of this plan. If nothing gets in the way, Samsung portable computers will be sailed in July 2010.

It's just that the deadline is still a plan on paper and it is possible to evaluate aka delayed.

One indicator is to see how the market absorption capacity of the Samsung netbook. If successful, then the most likely range of Samsung notebooks out as planned. But if the results obtained are not satisfactory, then get ready for just postponed.

"Yes it is, the notebook we have the possibility of delayed if not successful in the marketplace," said Budi.

Samsung itself still keep the name of the notebook series champion. Only in the event launching the first netbook, there are two Samsung notebooks on display. Both have 14-inch dimension, one looks with premium acrylic cover while the other is impressed mengerubunginya usual.

Samsung N110 Review

The Samsung N110 impressed us in a lot of categories, but we also found some areas that could be improved. The keyboard felt cramped compared some other netbooks and the screen felt washed out in some aspects. On the other hand the build quality was excellent, the design was great, and the battery life was phenomenal. The price is somewhat high when you look at some of the larger 11.6" and 12" netbooks on the market, but it does lead the way in battery life. If unplugged performance is the most important thing you are looking for the Samsung N110 easily has you covered.

The Samsung N110 uses the older 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270, instead of the newer and slightly faster 1.66GHz N280 with a faster bus speed. In terms of real world performance difference we didn't notice anything that stood out that made this model feel slower than others, outside of looking at the benchmark results. Boot and shutdown times were quick, and with the computer resting at an idle desktop screen shortly after you logged in. The netbook easily handled internet browsing, playing mp3s, watching streaming video, and 2D gaming without any hiccups. HD video played fine as long as it was 720P content or below. 1080P video pushed the Intel Atom N270 over the edge with many dropped frames and unsyncronized audio

Our Samsung N110 has an attractive design with a slick black cover, red accent trim, and matte finish interior. The looks are classy, looking appropriate for business users or even a parent using it inside of a coffee shop. Samsung doesn't go overboard with the brand logo, with a simple chrome raised letter "Samsung" on the front cover and a white painted logo underneath the display. Inside I think Samsung could have gone with glossy black paint, since it looks great on the outside cover. You might have had to deal with fingerprints and smudges, but it would have looked incredible. Outside we see that Samsung went with a flush mount extended battery that sticks down slightly in the rear, instead of sticking out the back. It doesn't stick down as far as the extended battery on the HP 2140, which is perfectly fine by me. One interesting and helpful think Samsung thought of when they designed the location

The Samsung N110 blew me away with its battery life. When we generally think of insane battery life figures from netbooks, we think of huge batteries with cells sticking out in every direction. It usually ends up being a hand grip of sorts. Samsung made an almost-flush mount 66Wh battery for the N110, which that in itself is pretty impressive. The manufacturer battery life claim was 8.5 hours, which is pretty good as is, but we managed to go longer. In our standard test where the screen brightness is reduced to about 70%, processor set to automatic, and wireless active the Samsung N110 stayed on for 9 hours and 44 minutes. This beats out the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA, which only got 9 hours and 37 minutes. Power consumption varied between 6 and 9 watts during the test. This is almost the perfect definition of all-day battery life, since it was turned on an hour or so after I got into work, and turned off two hours before I went to sleep later that night. With light usage this could easily last an entire weekend.
