Samsung 305U1A review

 

Netbooks have all but disappeared from store shelves, but one or two manufacturers have refused to give up on them just yet. Samsung's 305U1A is one such laptop, and it uses an AMD Fusion APU to power its diminutive 11.6in chassis.

Only suitable if you need a compact laptop; you can get better performance and battery life elsewhere

OK apart from the point below

There is always at least half a second delay in doing anything - eg opening a folder etc. I was like that from the start.

I bought this for my 8yr son, & it's fine for him to play his games on & it runs minecraft so thats a bonus, however the spec info regarding the battery life is no where near 8.5 hrs.
