Samsung Q30 - Ultra-Portable Notebook - Samsung Q30 - Ultra-Portable Notebook
Tue, January 04 2005 | 3:36PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Last year I reviewed the Sony VAIO X505 notebook and was stunned at just how wafer thin and light it was. Although I've looked at a number of ultra-portable notebooks since then, I've yet to see anything as slim, light or sexy as the Sony - until now. There are few technology products that I'd describe as being beautiful, but the Samsung Q30 definitely falls into that category. OK, so the Q30 isn't quite as light as the Sony X505, weighing 1.1kg as opposed to 822g, but the Samsung can hardly be described as heavy. And with dimensions of only 287 x 197 x 24mm (WxDxH) it's small enough to be slipped into almost any bag unobtrusively. But despite the tiny dimensions of the Q30, it is a well featured little machine. In fact, even though the Sony X505 is slightly lighter, you would have to carry some extra bits and pieces with you to match the functionality of this little Samsung. The Sony needed a dongle for both D-SUB and Ethernet ports, while there was also no integrated WiFi adapter, and although a PC Card WiFi adapter came with the X505 as standard, it was another thing that you needed to carry with you. The memory card reader was also a PC Card, so this would need to be carried separately as well - with the Samsung Q30, all this functionality is built-into the chassis.
