8 Reasons Against
Only One PCI Express Lane (max)
The NP350V5C is a one PCI Express lane (max) notebook PC.
Does Not Have a Front Camera
The NP350V5C does not have a front camera, unlike most of the other medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago.
It is worth also looking at alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the Asus S200E (£628.66) which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on laptops of this age and spec. 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.
Alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might want to consider include the X550CA, or the X552CL (£465.95) both from Asus which is cheaper.
If the storage medium of this Samsung laptop is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu LifeBook A544 (SSD).
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This portable PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years.
It may also be worth considering one of the other portable PCs that have a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the X552CL (£465.95), the X550CA, or the X550CA (£899.48) all from Asus.
