Samsung M50

 

Samsung entered the notebook race a little over a year and a half ago, and in that time they have consistently released a series of excellent laptops with exceptional looks and battery life. And the M50 is the flagship of the Samsung range.

Light for a desktop replacement ; surprisingly good battery life ; excellent performance

Lack of multimedia features such as webcam and TV tuner

A reasonably priced notebook with a gorgeous screen and enough juice for the daily commute

Expert review by:

M50

 

Samsung describes the M50 as the 'world's thinnest and lightest 17-inch notebook'. At just under 3kg, the latter is completely true - but the M50 is only thin at the front, bulking out heavily towards the back.

Good looks. Low price. Long battery life.

Underpowered. Mediocre screen resolution. Poor 3D chip.

At under £1,100, this configuration of the M50 is aimed at those on a tight budget. However, Rock's £999 Quaddra T64 was more powerful than the M50, albeit featuring an uglier chassis
