We at Stuff have been fans of Samsung’s diminutive Q40 since it was a grey hatchling, but now it’s flourished into a beautiful pink flamingo. Look at it. Lovely.
The Q40 is a talented little fella. It’s an almost-not-there 21mm thick (your RAZR V3 is about 14mm) and weighs just 1.15kg, which beds it comfortably in the stable of the sub-notebooks – an all-too-undercrowded stable, as far as we’re concerned. After all, most people get a notebook so they can work hassle-free away from the office – what’s the point in investing in one that’s going to shorten your spine?
Specs are impressive considering the Q40’s stature. It has a 1.2GHz Core Solo ULV processor to keep battery life up at 3hrs, and packs 512MB of RAM and a 60GB hard-disk. The 12.1in display is fed graphics by an Intel accelerator chip that shares 128MB of the RAM.
The pink Q40 is no shrinking violet, and, naturally, you’ll be wanting to show it off about town. Happily, it has 802.11g Wi-Fi, allowing wireless internet browsing and email in your local Starbucks. Its Bluetooth radio also allows you to pair it with a wireless headset, should you wish to indulge in cable-free Skype calls.
