Samsung Sens is the notebook computer series made by Samsung Electronics. Samsung notebooks are designed similarly to the Dell Latitude series. While they were available in many countries, the Sens notebook line were for some years not sold in the United States and Canada (with the exception of the Ultraportable Q Series). However, in mid-October 2008, Samsung announced that it would be re-launching its Sens notebooks on the US market.[1]

Series[edit]

P- This Sens was a mainstream notebook - a kind that is noted with the characteristics of being fair in price, heavy, short in battery life, and thick. But now, it is in the process of being discontinued in many countries.
Q- This series is an ultraportable, or at least they are quite light laptops. It has the characteristics of portable laptops: long battery life, small screen size, rather thin and light.

They continue their Q line with QX line.

Its models include R45, R50, R65, etc.(discontinued) or R40(budget Core 2 Duo laptop), R55/R70(high-end), R19/R20. For new Samsung laptops having Core i Series CPUs, they use RF line instead of R line.
