Samsung NP-X60plus 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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

A thin and light laptop with a widescreen panel

Impressive specification

Disappointing battery life

A laptop with good graphics, but poor battery life

Samsung X60 laptop

 

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

It’s hard not to be impressed with the Samsung X60. It’s a good machine at a great price and anyone looking to replace his or her desktop PC with a mainstream choice will like it. We managed to get over 3 hours from the battery, which means you can...

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.

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.
