The bottom panel is ordinary:

You can see the cover of the memory compartment. The vent opening is placed wrongly here, just like it is on many other notebooks.

The cover over the battery compartment is fixed with a small latch:

When you unlock it and remove the cover, you can extract the battery by its cloth tail:

The size of the battery is ordinary:

The manufacturer doesn’t declare its capacity, mentioning the voltage only:

Unlike the battery, the power adapter doesn’t conceal its characteristics:

The most interesting thing about the Samsung P28 is the ATI chipset and the Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics controller which should work much faster than Intel’s integrated graphics core. And we can really see the difference in tests, both real-life and synthetic ones. For example, this notebook allows you to play Unreal Tournament 2004 in 1024x768x32bit video mode at modest graphics quality settings – the frame rate is about 25-30fps in average and never sinks below 20fps. I don’t say this is a marvel, but the competitors can’t do even that. The nx6110 with the Intel GMA900 graphics core would often be as slow as 9-10fps under the same conditions which is of course below playable level. The rather slow matrix doesn’t allow me to recommend the Samsung P28 as a gaming computer, but if you do need some more speed in 3D applications, you may want to take a look at this one (by the way, if you don’t like its appearance, try to find the black version which looks much better).

The P28 is an average product. With its price and configuration, it is an offer that’s worth considering, but there are better models in this review, especially with better LCD matrixes.
