TabletPCReviews has included the Samsung Q1 within the top ten Tablet PCs of July 2007.
The Samsung Q1 is making some kind of come back returning to the list for the first time this year. Maybe it's due to all the improvements that have been made to this sleek UMPC. The Samsung Q1 features an Intel Celeron processor, 512MB of RAM, 40GB hard drive, and a 7-inch widescreen. The Q1 also runs Windows Tablet PC OS.
To me it is very interesting that they did not selected the newest Q1U but the old Q1 with Celeron Processor. The Q1 with Celeron has the same performance than the Q1P and cost a lot less. The only difference between the two is about 10 to 20 minutes more of battery life in the Q1P. I have been using the Q1 for around 10 months and as of today I have not found a better companion. I need more performance and I need more battery life, no question about it. Have I thought about replacing the Q1? Yes, but it's not the time yet. The second generation of UMPC does not give me the performance that I need and it's worse than what I have in my Q1. They have a better battery life but no all of them and those with a better one only have 1 hour more of life, something that I get easily with a extended battery. And now with Vista and the HID Driver I even do not miss any more the mouse of my eo v7110 which was a big point in the past for me. So here I'm, a happy camper with my Q1.
