Default Samsung's QX410 Laptop Unboxed

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1298668733.usr1.jpg" /></p><p>This is an unboxing and first impressions video of the <a href="http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/office/mobile-computing/performance/NP-QX410-S01CA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&amp;returnurl=" target="_blank">Samsung QX410-J01</a>. The QX410 has a 14 inch screen, running at a disappointing 1366 x 768 resolution. It packs a lot of power in the CPU/GPU department: it uses an Intel Core i5 CPU running at 2.53 Ghz with turbo boost up to 2.8 Ghz. It has an NVIDIA GeForce 310M GPU with 512 MB of dedicated RAM.&nbsp;Other hardware includes 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, a 640 GB 5400rpm hard drive, a DVD/CD burner, gigabit Ethernet port, memory card reader (SD), 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, a Webcam with built-in microphone, HDMI output. The laptop runs Windows 7 Home Premium. <MORE /></p><p>The materials of the laptop are impressive though - the lid is a brushed&nbsp;aluminium and the overall feel of the materials is one of quality. It's not quite at the level of a Macbook Air/Pro, but it's close.</p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/0YsVPI7rohs&amp;ap=&fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/0YsVPI7rohs&amp;ap=&fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Samsung claims the battery life of the QX410 will deliver up to seven hours of battery life - I'd guess that will amount to around five hours of real-world use. We'll see! It also features a "Sleep and Charge" USB port which provides power for recharging devices when the laptop is powered off.</p><p>How does the Samsung QX410 measure up? Wait for my review to find out.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates&nbsp;</em><em><a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a></em><em>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
