Samsung Q320 - 13.4in Laptop

 

Samsung continues its excellent reputation for portable laptops with its latest 13in effort, the Q320-AS02UK.

This is a well considered and classy step-forward from its predecessor. While the Q310 was overly flashy and slightly gaudy, the Q320 is more restrained and offers a look and feel that surpasses its affordable price. This view can be applied to its...

Good quality, strong 3D performance, highly portable

Glossy lid is a magnet for prints

Overall, the Samsung Q320 is a surprisingly competent all-rounder. It may be small, but it’s also powerful enough for just about any task, and it’s sturdy and usable design makes it an attractive choice. Add to this a good feature set, and the Samsung...

Samsung Q320-FS01UK review

 

At 2.2kg, Samsung's attractive Q320 is 200g heavier than our limit for ultra-portable laptops, but it's still light enough to carry regularly.

The Q320's excellent design, great keyboard and small size make it a decent travelling companion.

Samsung Q320 review

 

The laptop is compact and light enough (2.33kg) not to break your back, it has a 13.4in screen that you don't need to squint at, and the Samsung NP-Q320 is powerful enough to run most major applications well. Still, this nice all-purpose laptop suffers...

At £670 the Samsung Q320 poses strong competition for other well-equipped 13in notebooks, such as the Dell Studio XPS 13. Samsung's model has a little more muscle than that, but it isn't quite as stylish. Overall, the NP-Q320 is a pretty good value for...

Samsung NP-Q320

 

For many people, the pricing sweet spot for the perfect laptop is between $800 and $1000. Full-fledged yet svelte, Samsung's NP-Q320 all-purpose notebook ($949 as of September 10, 2009) has the muscle to serve as your primary work/school/home computer....

Good performance for the price ; Attractive and easy to carry

Poor screen contrast and viewing angles ; Too many ports crammed onto one side

With the exception of a lackluster screen, this is a slick general purpose laptop with a good bit of power for the price.

The new Samsung Q320, an attractive, dynamically designed noteboo ...

Stable case and display lid ; Quality material with a pleasant feel ; Aesthetic design ; Fantastic keyboard ; Good loudspeakers ; Numerous interfaces

Fan regulation in idle mode or under low load ; Weak colors and viewing angles ; Reflective display ; High-gloss display lid ; Restricted opening angle

Surmising it can however be noted: Samsung has done a good job with the Q320. The Samsung Q320 proves to be a useable mobile companion
