Samsung QX – Premium performance and mobility, with stylish design
The ideal notebook for mobile Australian professionals, Samsung’s QX range of notebooks features all the latest speed and performance technology, without compromising on style. At just 27mm in thickness and weighing just 1.99kg (13’’ screen model), Samsung’s new notebook features an airfoil exterior design and robust and scratch-resistant durable casing which has been built for professionals who take their notebooks with them on the go. A combination of aluminium back and edge-to-edge LCD displays, coupled with side doors to hide a variety of connection ports, delivers a smooth, unbroken design profile. Samsung has also incorporated a stylish yet functional island keyboard and a large, button-less gesture pad, to help increase your accuracy and speed while typing.
With up to 6.9 hours of battery life and Intel® Core™i5 Processors, Samsung’s premium notebook offers state-of-the-art portability and performance. Samsung’s QX notebook employs a hybrid approach to graphics display and will switch from the nVIDIA graphics card when you’re playing High-Definition (HD) video to an Intel graphics processor for regular use, delivering first-class quality graphics without compromising on battery life. Understanding the demanding schedule of busy professionals, the Samsung QX also features Samsung’s Express Charging Mode to reduce the amount of time it takes to charge your notebook and deliver a full battery in less than half the time of conventional notebooks.
To ensure convenient access to a true multimedia experience, Samsung’s QX range provides dedicated multimedia controls, powerful speakers and a bigger acoustic chamber, so you can blast all your favourite tunes without the need for speaker accessories.

Featuring a unique brushed metallic spiral design beneath a scratch resistant surface, the Samsung RF notebook has been tested to ensure it withstands the bumps and knocks of everyday use. With advanced graphics and Intel’s i7 quad-core CPU, you won’t have to worry about your PC slowing down when you’re multitasking or relying on fast speeds for gaming or editing videos. Samsung’s RF series notebooks come equipped with nVIDIA’s latest graphics solution – a GT330M video card with 1GB of memory or a GT420M card with 2GB or memory – that will make games and HD video shine.
Whether you’re listening to music or watching a movie, you’ll notice the difference in sound quality enabled by Samsung’s Enhanced Acoustic Chamber System through dual 3-watt speakers. You’ll also be able to experience the highest quality video with the Samsung RF notebook’s Blu-ray drive (available on RF710 only), while a high-resolution Webcam offer bright and sharp images.
