You no longer have to shut down your Samsung computer, just close its lid and it goes into a special powerless sleep mode. When you open the lid your computer comes back to life in three seconds and you are exactly at the same place as when you shut the lid. Fast Start saves your data and system configurations to your hard drive and PC memory. So, when you power it back on it is just like you left it
Island Style Keyboard
The key to getting more done has to do with an ergonomically designed keyboard. The Island style keyboard design of the Q430 provides a larger separation between individual keys. This creates easier, faster typing with fewer mistakes
