Samsung moves from netbooks to notebooks with an affordable, 14-inch notebook PC that won’t strain your budget or your biceps. But will the 64-bit version of Windows 7 raise issues for SMBs?

The Samsung R440-11 comes stocked with plenty of features an SMB owner could use, plus a few items aimed at consumers that may or may not appeal. But perhaps the most important feature -- at least for SMBs running a business on the 32-bit version of Windows 7 -- is the OS.

The Samsung R440-11 runs the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. That's important because older hardware and software might not run on the 64-bit version of Windows 7. Learn what you need to know in our article, Are You Singing the Windows 7 64-Bit OS Blues?

What do most business travelers want out of a laptop? Flexibility, portability, and ease of use at a reasonable price -- pretty much what most students and home users are looking for, too. It's no surprise, then, that many notebook manufacturers position their models as suitable for slipping into a briefcase as well as shoving into a backpack.

With its recently released R40 series of laptops, Samsung is looking to show the world that they have met those needs by striking just the right balance for a variety of users. The R440-11 ($729) is a 14-inch laptop that packs a fair amount of functionality into its 4.9-pound chassis. And in this review, we'll be looking at just how well Samsung has positioned it to go toe-to-toe with similarly positioned offerings from its competitors.
