Was just about to post this.

Looks like a good deal to me.
Been looking for a portable laptop for the past few days.
The only thing stopping me from buying now is the lack of Gigabit Ethernet & battery life.

Anyone know if/how well Bluetooth 3.0 could transfer a large video file (around 8GB)?

What kind of battery life do you get out of it?

A bit of a bargain, but can't help but think that first gen i3 laptops will just get cheaper...

hot!

Cracking portable laptop. A 14" screen, powerful, premium laptop from a top brand that's brilliant value at £390. My only slight niggle is that it appears to come with the standard battery not the high capacity one that adds approx two hours extra - that currently costs £537. Nevertheless hot, hot hot!

I'm seeing it at £429.97 - why?

ignore me, I'm being a pleb

I missed out on the Q330 that was going for 399. It had a bigger hard drive and a better battery life.

Im just wondering if this is better value for money? If you had the choice which would you choose? Im annoyed that I missed out on the Q330 as I wanted a 13.3 inch laptop. How significant is the in .7 of an inch in terms of the overall size of the machine.

Thanks in advance!

All other things being equal, then I'd personally go for the 14" and reap the benefit of more screen real estate but take the hit of slightly more bulk and weight to lug around. The 13.3" size is perfectly acceptable in day to day use and saves a bit of weight (1.95kg v 2.1 kg). I recently tried both screen sizes and ended up with a 13.3" size screen purely because the particular laptop was the best spec/price that suited my needs at the time. I'm v happy with it. Side by side you can definitely tell the difference between 13.3" v 14" but I suppose what i'm saying is that the difference is marginal. I would not be driven just by screen size and look at the whole deal.

As far as the Samsung Q430 v Q330 goes. As both 13.3" and 14" are designed for portability, i'd personally go for the longer battery life before screen size and hence the Q330 but your priorities may be different.

very very tempted to buy this - anyone know how long the 10% deal is on for?
#12
Not sure the point of a dedicated graphics chipset when its barely any quicker than standard intel stuff, certainly won't be a gaming machine.
Suppose the 512mb ram on it might be helpful for those using photoshop and basic video editing, but then you'd probably choose an i5 over this, and more importantly a larger and higher res screen.

Decent price for what you get, just a bit of a strange laptop, excels in nothing.

I've got this laptop for my parents and battery life is one of its strong points compared to other similar sized laptops with an i3 processor. I don't think it has a gigabit network card but I can't see how that would be a massive problem in a laptop.

It seems to do well in every area though, if not excelling. Its a good well rounded laptop for students who maybe want to play a game or two but nothing major, and want a solid and fairly good looking case.

Posting from mine and paid considerably more! Fantastic laptop with great ~5hr battery life (wifi, quite bright screen)

G310 plays COD MW fine!

If its anything like the q330 I would recommend it. Bought a q330 with same spec bar GPU for my partner and even tho it feels slow compared to mine (which would be obvious: SXPS 16, i7 620m, 1GB ati 4670, 8GB Ram and a momentus XT) it can play Portal, and Left 4 Dead aswell as a fair few more of my Steam games (low settings). And thats on the Intel HD card, the 310m isn't vastly faster but would provide a boost.
It's powerful enough and light enough to be our "portable" but still useful laptop. Mine is just a pain in the a$$ to lug around outside.
#19
It is kind of middle of the pack: not light, but not too heavy, not small, but not too big, not fast, but not too slow either. Not expensive, but not very cheap.

If it fits your need, that is a good deal. Just remember to remove the Samsung software - it will drive you nuts otherwise. Especially McAfee.

Yes it does, to an extent - I can 2 finger scroll etc, though I did update the Synaptics drivers

I used to have a 14" laptop for work and bought the 13.3" Samsung Q330 a couple of weeks back - it's a bigger difference than you would think. Personally I like 14" laptops. They are portable and and the screen size is really good. I think if you're going to be spending ages on spreadsheets and word docs this (14") is a much better size than the 13.3". I find 15.6" laptops too big so this is a very happy medium.

The Samsung Q330 13.3" does. It's got 'up and down' and 'left and right' scroll and 'pinch to zoom'. I would be surprised if the Q430 didn't. That was my concern when I bought the Q330.....

Ordered one today after a lot of consideration, can't wait to see it. :) thanks OP. :D

give us a review when you get it! norn iron - how much was postage (£10?) did you find out whether it was 3/4gb RAM? also spec says RAM is 800hz, is that not very very slow?

Aye, postage was £10 unfortunately, still a good deal though. :) The ones listed on other sites with 3Gb RAM actually have a different manufacturer's part number, I discovered after a browse. This model which has 4Gb is "NP-Q430-JS01UK" and the 3Gb version listed elsewhere is "NP-Q430-JS02UK". 800Mhz DDR3 won't be slow at all, application loading time may be very slightly longer than with 1066Mhz, but I doubt it will be noticeable. :) I suspect the 5200RPM HDD will be more of a bottleneck issue tbh. I'll maybe post a quick review up in this thread or something when I get it. :D
#33
nice just ordered and managed to add 2 different laptops to my checkout and get 2 copies of Bullguard then cancel one and the 2 copies stay there so i should be getting the laptop, 2 copies of bullguard, next day delivery all for £400. NICE if i say so myself.

Thanks Guys

Hang on guys, is this a mistake?

When you search for samsung Q430 on their website, two laptops are returned. One is model number NP-Q430-JS02UK which is £537.37 and the other is the Q430-JS01UK (Q330) which is £429.97. The latter is the one that this thread is about, and is £389.97 after having used voucher code SUNNY-1.

Is it possible that the laptop is in face a Q330 and not a Q430, as per in brackets at the end of the stated model number?
#35
What exactly is the difference between JS02UK and JS01UK?
#36
1GB of Ram it seems reading the above post:

"This model which has 4Gb is "NP-Q430-JS01UK" and the 3Gb version listed elsewhere is "NP-Q430-JS02UK"

But this is the "Q430-JS01UK (Q330)". So has it only 3gb RAM and not 4gb as per thread title?

The laptop this thread is based on is listed here - Its Part Number is "NP-Q430-JS01UK" - It has 4Gb of RAM, clocked @ 800Mhz.

The laptop listed here is Part Number "NP-Q430-JS02UK" - It has 3Gb of RAM, clocked @ 1066Mhz. It is presumably a newer model, judging by the faster core speed on the RAM, and the fact that it's much easier to find.

I'm not sure why you linked to a US version of the laptop though. oO It's a fact of life that we pay more and get less for our money here. :(

I hope this post clears most of the confusion.. :)

Thanks, that clarifies things.

I'm going to the US in three weeks. I'm weighing up whether it's worth paying less for a better spec laptop, albeit with a US keyboard and lower resale value in future.
