Chart Edit

Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity

The smallest hard drive capacity of comparable spec notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the NP300V5A is 180GB and the biggest is 1.5TB. With a hard drive capacity of 750 gigabytes, the Samsung NP300V5A has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

AC Cable Included

This laptop has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included on laptops of this age and type.

Chart Edit

2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot

This portable PC has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Maximum Processor Memory Bandwidth

The slowest maximum processor memory bandwidth of notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the NP300V5A is 17GB/s and the fastest is 32GB/s. When compared to other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the NP300V5A that we have checked, the maximum processor memory bandwidth of the NP300V5A of only 21.3 gigabytes per second is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

The NP300V5A is a laptop that uses two displays supported by on-board grap. Most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the NP300V5A use two displays supported by on-board grap.

Chart Edit

Only One PCI Express Lane (max)

The NP300V5A is a one PCI Express lane (max) portable PC. Most of the other comparable spec laptops that came out more than two years ago have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max).

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the S540 (SSD) both from Lenovo.

Samsung's Series 3 is a more economical take on the company's cool Series 9 laptops, and one of the few 11inch laptops with an Intel Core 3 CPU
Do zalet z pewnoci trzeba zaliczy to, co pierwsze si rzuca w oczy, czyli obudow

Bluetooth 3.0
At 699, it's priced out of the league of other 11inch ultraportables
Do wad tego modelu naley brak przynajmniej jednego portu USB 3.0 (wyposaono go w trzy porty USB 2.0)
