Samsung NP350 review

Part of its’ new ‘Series X’ line of laptops, the Samsung NP350 is sleek, slim and light. With a normal keypad and a matt screen, the bottom is a single smooth plastic base and the lid has a nice brushed aluminum look. However the rocker switch is difficult to control at times.

Samsung-NP350The screen is 12.6 inches and therefore bigger than a normal netbook screen but has a weight of only 3.1 pounds.

Also with a good Wi-Fi module and antenna includes Intel Wireless display support, the reception quality seems to be better than average. Another unique feature is the Eco mode software with modes such as “Nature conservation”, “Energy saving”, “Work-nature-balanced” etc. Also Intel’s Wi-Fi wireless display tech is supported, making it easy to play content on your TV if you happen to have a Wi-Fi-enabled set-top box or HDTV. The hard disk comes with plenty of storage space but doesn’t match the performance of the SSD-only Ultra books. Hard disk speed is the another difference between the performance of the NP350 and average Ultra book performance.

Battery life came in at 3 hours, 39 minutes – reasonable given the high performance of the CPU, but insufficient for a full day’s work.

Pricing wise, this laptop is a great deal because in the USA, the Core i5 version of the NP350 is around $700 (where Ultrabooks start at $800)
