As far as I know, it's the same as my QX412: Samsung QX412

Only difference is, slower CPU, no SSD, less RAM, and I think (for some reason) faster GPU.

It's a solid machine IMO.

Looks very nice indeed. Its right at the upper range of my budget for a replacement laptop though, so I'll have to see it in person before deciding if its a "winner" or not.

Looking at the pictures on Best Buy, seems the QX411 lacks the "super thin bezel" and 14" screen in 13.3" form factor that my QX412 has.

And I haven't really ran the battery to 0% yet, but Windows estimates around 6-7h while browsing.

Checkout this review on the QX412: Review Samsung QX412-S01DE Notebook - Notebookcheck.net Reviews

Basically whatever Samsung has done, be it with the Lithium Polymer battery, or through higher efficiency components, it gets the best battery runtime in it's class.
