Review Samsung X520 Notebook

 

Legacy? Samsung's X-range is having a downright family gathering

Chic and compact design; Good touchpad; Quiet and cool

Wobbly keyboard; No dual-core processor; Average display

Another design whopper in a 15.6 inch size: The Asus UX50V. Also chic but smaller: The Dell Inspiron 13z. If you want it even slimmer and more exclusive, the MacBook Air would be right.

Decent performance and comfort, but its not the most portable CULV laptop

Good battery life ; Good build quality ; Generous hard drive

Quite heavy ; Integrated graphics

Samsung X520 – 15.6in CULV Laptop

 

We take a close look at the X520, Samsung's 15.6in CULV laptop that promises more use between charges.

Despite displaying the usual fondness for fingerprints, the touchpad buttons (integrated into a single chromed rocker switch) do give excellent feedback. Below these are the laptop's status indicators, which are backlit in blue or green. These will of...

This slinky Samsung has a chassis that's slimmer than a MacBook, but still comes in at a bargain price. Is it the perfect all-rounder?

A stylish, lightweight option for anyone seeking a simple laptop on a budget

Samsung X520 review

 

Samsung's X-series stakes out the ultraportable end of the company's extensive range of laptops. The X360, for example, was Samsung's indiscreet competitor to the Apple MacBook Air, with its 13in screen and an all-up weight a few grams down from...

The Samsung X520 is undeniably a light 15in laptop with usefully long battery life and enough to firepower to keep most users satisfied. But we weren't enamoured by the build and 'feel', which we hazard will not become a true classic in the line-up of...

Samsung X520 review

 

At 2.2kg, Samsung's X520 isn't really an ultraportable laptop. However, considering it has a 15.6in screen and a built-in DVD writer, it's a good 0.5kg lighter than most laptops of this size. If you can put up with its extra weight you'll be rewarded...

Samsung's X520 is a bit heavier than we'd like, but its great battery life, comfortable keyboard and large hard disk make it a great choice if you want a comparatively light laptop with a large screen.

Samsung X520 review

 

The dinky but decent Samsung X120 is one of our favourites of a new slew of 11-inch lappies. So how does its bigger bro, the Samsung X520, fare? Is it a colossus without any standout skills? Or a big screen warhorse, ideal for multitasking? Read our...

Battery life is long, looks good, loads of hard drive space

Hefty, no Blu-ray

A solid, if unspectacular laptop

Samsung - X520

 

Samsung's new X-series laptops are all about mobility, and the X520 slots in as the highest-specification model in the range. It's by no means feather-light, but considering it houses a 15.6-inch display and high-capacity six-cell battery, ...

Despite its low-powered processor, the X520 is perfectly adequate for undemanding users who aren't going to be doing much more than surfing the Internet, word processing and a bit of image-editing. And with good battery life and a decent keyboard, the...

Samsung X520 notebook

 

With integrated graphics and a 1.3GHz processor the X520 is no speed demon, but decent battery life and a stylish design boost its appeal.

With its good, albeit not nine-hour, battery life and a rather enticing design, the X520 certainly has its plus points. And despite some unnecessary design imperfections, such as the springy numeric keypad and thin trackpad buttons, it’s a decent...
