Samsung Q530, Q430, and Q330 Notebooks Available This Month in the UK

The Samsung Q line-up of notebooks hasn’t been a big secret, but as of today we can finally say that the series has a somewhat firm release date when it comes to those in the United Kingdom who might be interested. Samsung also announced that the Q530, Q430, and Q330 will be heading to other international markets as well. At the top of the line, the Q530 is by far the most appealing of the set.

As Samsung puts it, the Q series of notebooks is designed to put as much power into a pretty package as they can get. We can’t say for sure if they’re trying to be budget conscious, either, but with the features herein, we’d have to guess that these won’t go as cheap as some would like. The Q530, resting as the king of the Q series king of the hill, features a 15.6-inch LED backlit screen, with a 16:9 aspect ratio. You get to choose from Intel’s Core i5 or i3 processors. You also get GeForce GT330M 1GB DDR3 GPU.

But what makes it better are the little things. For example, you get built-in WiFi, but it also supports ad-hoc, which means you’ll be able to transfer files between two WiFi enabled devices. (No, not revolutionary, but still good enough to put on paper.) It also features DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0, built-in webcam, memory card reader, USB and HDMI ports, and the standard optical drive. There’s also Samsung’s Extended Battery Life mechanism, which means you’ll get upwards of 7 hours of life out of the battery.

As for the other two notebooks, the Q430 is essentially the same as the Q530, but it features a smaller display. At only 14-inches, it could be more of what people are looking for, at least in the travel department. But, the Q330 features a 13.3-inch screen, and it’s also powered by Intel’s Core processors. Tucked away inside is NVIDIA’s GeForce 310M GPU. No final word on pricing, but as we get closer to August, we’re sure that will break in due time.
