    In the balanced power profile, turbo mode should happen automatically. How much turbo boost you get depends on several factors. For example: The full turbo speed usually only happens if one thread is active (very rare) but you will get some turbo boost on both cores if the CPU is busy but not the GPU (my i5 540M is nominally 2.53GHz but will run for long periods at 2.8GHz if there is work to be done).

    If you use the Windows power saver profile (or a Samsung custom battery saver profile if provided) then the CPU's maximum speed may be limited to less than 100%.

    Ok, so bottom line, this should blow my Toshiba R600 out of the water for CPU-intensive tasks and for anything involving 3D graphics. Thanks!

    How so? I know they had the X360, X460, along with the 14in QX series, and their vast line of netbooks sold here.

    When Dell rebadged the Samsung Q30 to sell as the Latitude X1 there was an agreement that Samsung would not directly compete with Dell in the North American market. However, that agreement expired a couple of years ago (maybe more).

    I doubt that euro price will equal the US price, electronics are almost always more expensive in Europe
