CNET Asia – December 2005 –
(US$2,347.66) certainly doesn’t make for a very affordable notebook but the Q30 clearly wants to target the higher-end segment of the market.

TrustedReviews – January 2005 – 8 out of 10 – “Recommended” – If you’re looking for a very light and slim notebook to carry around with you all day, every day, you’d be hard pushed to find a better unit than the Samsung Q30. Just make sure that you don’t need PC Card or Bluetooth support.
