All About the Samsung 3 Series

September 12, 2011

in Samsung Notebooks,Samsung Series 3

Samsung have added a number of new additions to their notebook range.

The 3 Series can be thought of as a mainstream notebook line, for those of us that haven’t got the budget for the gorgeous looking Series 9 or lack interest in niche products such as the Series 5 Chromebook.

The Series 3 Notebooks

Let’s take a look at the two new models:

Samsung Series 3 NP300U1A-A1US

First up we have the 11.6″ NP300 notebook.  This model features a 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.2 GHz Intel Pentium 957 dual core processor.

It has the usual range of connectivity, including 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. The laptop has 3 USB 2.0 ports and comes with a 6 cell battery.

Samsung Series 3 NP350U2B-A1US 

The NP350 is larger and faster.  The laptop has a 12.5 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel matte display, powered by a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-2410M dual core processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 500GB hard drive.

Want to Buy a Series 3?

These models will cost you more than a traditional netbook, but the larger size and greater power will justify the cost.  And at just over one kilo they are still ultra portable.

Currently the Series 3 is available at Amazon.com in the US.  I haven’t seen either the NP300 or the NP350 here in the UK yet.  Please let us know if you have seen one!

If you own one of these, please let us know what you think in our notebook forum area.

Have you checked out the Samsung RV 518? It’s immensely powerful as mainstream laptops go but available at a fraction of the cost – probably because SAMSUNG does not have a solid brand yet.

Hi

Thinking about getting a laptop and wanted to know the main difference between a new series 3 NP300E5A-A01DX and RV520-A07UK both have same amount of ram and HD and are running the same i3 processor and same price.
