Been waiting for a deal on the Samsung Q430 to come up. I want something portable and the 14" screen is the ideal screen size for me. It was £679.99 at Argos and they recently reduced it to a still buttock clenching £599.99. Bit disappointed with the battery life though, i kind of assumed it would be 6-7 hours as per the recently posted Samsung Q330 and as listed on the Argos Q430. The higher rated battery on the Argos Q430 does explain part of the price difference. Still a good price though.

If your processing requirements are modest, at £325, that Toshiba is also a hot price.

These are not bad laptops, but I find the keyboards a bit poor, plus the speakers are super bad. Speed is ok but the restore partition does not allow you to create a recovery disc, just a full hd backup disc. So if the hard drive goes down bye bye unless you buy a cd from Samsung.

I am not a fan of Samsung - they software tends to suck big time. But the price is right, and the laptop should be quite powerful.

I would just reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 7.

I almost regret buying the Q330 a couple of weeks ago now.

Anyone considering this should note that the battery is Battery is not 5900mAh version!

Q330 doesn't get anywhere near 6-7 hours. It's rated at 5 by Samsung. This would be lesser given marginally larger screen.

A bit more than marginal, the capacity on the Q3330 was 5900 mah and is 4000mah on this

am I missing something here on the specs from "sabz786".

It states 4Gb, though then lists 1x1GB and 1x2GB... (that is 3)... are they then counting the graphics memory and then rounding up

Admit, tempted too... is this a better deal than the Q330?

I have a samsung netbook, and though a lot of bloatware installed, has been OK.. though for a larger laptop was tempted to go more mainstreasm Dell or HP... as find some of the SAmsung laptops rather plasticy - guess a trip to PC World to see it may help.

Part of the reason Q330 appeared so hot here, was to be advertised as fully fledged ultraportable with 7 hours battery and i3 CPU. Which turned out to be disappointment, failing to deliver the battery performance.

Once bitten twice shy, at the same price as Q330, I would prefer this. That said, the whole reason I bought Q330 was the advertised battery, it didn't deliver; had I known in hindsight I would stayed well clear, and this will fall further off the mark.

Very true, this will struggle getting 2-3 hours out

After a year of moderate use, laptop batteries seem to loose around 50% of their performance.

This is why as long as it says 3-4 hours I'm happy with that since I hardly ever use battery on notebooks. If you want longer you've got to pay way more or just buy a decent netbook.

A netbook with an i3 processor and good battery life? Pls share

Really like everything about this model except for the lower rated battery. I went for the Core i3-330UM Toshiba T230-10J deal (now expired) purely for the better battery life. Cannot see the point in having a smaller than average screen to aid portability and then having to lug a power brick and cable around with you all the time - assuming you're close to a power socket of course. Still think it's a very good deal though but unfortunately,not a great one.

got one

Does any one know how long this is valid for? is it still on?

Thanks

Good machine after spending an hour removing all the crappy software

What's the difference between free delivery and paid delivery? Is it only the delivery date?
