Samsung Q430-JU01 LED Notebook: Full Specs

Samsung do not have many laptops – or what they call notebooks – on the market, but what they do have are pretty special. I am not saying that they are the fastest performing laptops on the market, but you cannot deny how well designed they are. One notebook that springs to mind is the Q430-JU01.

The first thing that drew me to this particular device is its 14-inch HD LED Backlit Display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. What this means to the consumer is much sharper images than a number of the other laptops on the market, so ideal for watching HD video content that you have stored.

The aluminum design of the casing and the island style keyboard looks like the love child of a MacBook Pro and a standard Windows laptop. Keeping things ticking is a 1.6GHZ Intel core i5-460M processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 500GB hard drive and a NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics card with 512MB of shared memory.

Connectivity for the Samsung Q430-JU01 notebook is pretty standard, 3USB ports, multicard reader, and one HDMI output. When you are on the Samsung website and click on the shop tab, you will then be taken to another page that redirects you to Amazon. Through a partnership that they have with the online retail giant, you can get up to $150 of the normal retail price. For more details visit Samsung U.S.

    Sure someone would write what the screen resolution is, but I suppose it is the usual crappy 1366 x 768 as all articles conveniently neglect to mention it.

    good laptop, but with no usb 3.0, no esata nor expresscard slot, this pretty much make this machine totally outdated. if you don’t mind than it’s an ok buy, however, i would look eslewhere if you need today’s technology.
