The deal: Samsung QX310 - amazing price Intel Core i5 equipped ultraportable - $898.00
For those looking at getting an ultraportable notebook, for $898 at Officeworks the Samsung QX310-S01AU is unbeatable value for money. It packs a fast Intel Core i5, low-end graphics card and 320GB hard drive into a frame that weighs only 2.09kg. The combination of such great portability and solid computing power really marks this special as one of the best.
The processor is an Intel Core i5-460M (2.53GHz) that can power through productivity applications with ease, even if you’re running several at once. Having 4GB of RAM definitely helps in that regard. Admittedly an NVIDIA GeForce 310M is a low-end graphics card, but it can still play new games like StarCraft 2 on low settings with no dramas.
In addition to having a low weight, the physical measurements are also very slight; the QX310 measures 27mm thick, 236.4mm deep and 331mm wide. While the 320GB hard drive is a bit small, for the price it’s a very minor compromise. The final touch is an impressive 13.3in (1,366x768 resolution), so all the productivity applications, movies and games will be displayed clearly.
