Samsung NP-X60-plus Core 2 Duo Notebook Review

 

The Samsung NP-X60plus is an enhanced version of the Samsung X60 series and includes the Intel Core 2 Duo. The X60plus is very similar to its predecessor and weighs in at about 2.55kg (5.5lb) with a 6 cell battery, which places it among the lightest...

A lightweight (just over 2.5kg / 5.5lb) 15.4? notebook ; Solid and rigid construction ; High quality and high resolution display ; Good audio volume and quality ; The hard disk stays cool ; PC Card slot for backwards compatibility

The standard 6 cell battery running time is less than 3 hours at light load ; More fan activity than the previous X60 (may be attributable to the more powerful GPU) ; The power supply is excessively heavy for a lightweight notebook ; The touchpad could...

The X60plus should be on the shortlist of anyone looking for a powerful but lightweight 15.4? widescreen computer (subject to the regional availability constraints). Build quality does not appear to be compromised by the low weight. The model reviewed...

Samsung X60 Studentbook Review (pics, specs)

 

The Samsung X60 Studentbook is a notebook sold by Samsung in Germany targeted specifically at students. With its thin design but ample sized 15.4 screen the portable and powerful nature of this notebook do indeed make it ideal for students.

CPU Performance Great GPU Light Build quality Remote control Stays cool High resolution bright display Quiet Plentiful of ports

Keyboard issues Display artifacts Some of the bundled utilities have yet to mature The BIOS does not remember the settings of the brightness or touchpad status (enabled/disabled) Rather poor speakers USB connector on the right

I am happy with my purchase, despite the shortcomings I have mentioned above. Overall it turned out to be exactly the machine I had expected. It is definitely not a long-battery life ultraportable notebook, but a well blended mixture of a...

Samsung X60 laptop review

 

Samsung is something of a dark horse in the notebook world. As one of the largest component manufacturers in the world, it produces over 90% of the parts for its own machines, which means it can offer something a little more special than the average...

Dual-core, great screen

Average battery life

For the price, it’s a well-specified and good all-round notebook

Samsung X60 Centrino Duo Notebook

 

Samsung's X60 is a feature packed, high end notebook, but how does it stand up to the stiff competition.

The X60 is finished in Samsung’s regular matt silver with black detailing – it looks good, but not what I’d describe as drop dead gorgeous. Lifting the lid reveals a 15.4in widescreen display with a high contrast glossy coating. As always I’ll mention...

Samsung NP-X60

 

When it comes to laptops, Samsung probably isn't the first name that springs to mind. It's a manufacturer that's easy to overlook in a market dominated by the likes of Dell and HP - but this would be a real shame, because the firm's laptops, such as...

The Samsung NP-X60 is sleek, powerful and stylish. If you're looking for something a bit different from the average Dell laptop, this is well worth a look.

Pack up your PC and ship it to skipsville; the Samsung X60's slick styling is ripe for desktop invasion

High-quality finish. Powerful machine with 100GB hard drive and 15.4in screen.

Expensive. Will kick your PC from its nest.

Samsung - X60

 

The natural successor to the X50 that Samsung launched last year, this X60 retains the 15.4-inch screen of its predecessor but is loaded with bang-up-to-date features. Powering the X60 is an Intel Core Duo T2500 CPU ...

This is a well-performing laptop with a good feature set, but the battery life is a bit below what you might expect from a notebook in this class.

Product Specifications

The X60 is a high performance notebook like no other. Designed to meet the demands of professional notebook users, the Samsungs X60 features accelerated 3D graphics, enhanced wireless connectivity and high performance multi tasking functionality that provides significant performance gains over previous models.
