Samsung X1 laptop review

 

The Samsung X1 is a novel new take on the idea of the ultraportable, but can it deliver the goods? Samsung is a name better associated with more consumery devices such as televisions or mobile phones rather than computer equipment but its notebook line...

Unique design, great price, good battery life

Sluggish performance

Samsung tries an innovative new design with a mixed bag of results – great battery life but rather poor when it comes to getting the job done

Samsung X1

 

Samsung is well known for its innovative and unusual designs, so it's no surprise to find one or two unique features in its X1. The most obvious one hits you as soon as you open the thing up - the optical drive is a top-loading model, meaning that the...

There's very little that's mediocre about the X1; the good things are very good, and the bad things are very bad. The optical drive and trackpoint make it a pain to use, but the battery life and portability make it an ideal travelling companion....

Samsung X1 review

 

Slim, lightweight and elegant, Samsung's X1 makes an excellent choice of ultraportable for the style-conscious mobile professional -- if you can put up with the lack of a wrist-rest for the keyboard

Superb wide-aspect screen ; Ultra-thin and portable ; Excellent battery life with the optional extended battery ; Can run multimedia software without booting Windows XP

Top-loading optical drive means there is no wrist-rest ; Low volume from speakers

The standout features of the Samsung X1 are its superb wide-aspect 14-inch screen, good multimedia features and lightweight, stylish design. The top-loading optical drive is novel, and has some plus points, but we found that the lack of a wrist-rest...

Samsung X1 review

 

The Samsung X1 redefines how slim a notebook can get and still keep the optical drive.

Very slim design; plays DVD without booting into OS; remote control; speakers on the side of the unit; ExpressCard slot

Keyboard too cramped and set too far forward; no screen latch; no dedicated switches; screen dim for a transflective LCD; optical drive not upgradeable; no S-video port

The avant-garde design and multimedia features will appeal to the fashion set. However, the uncomfortable keyboard does not perform for extended typing sessions.

Beautiful ultraslim laptop

 

If you like me have your desktop PC which is for general things, but when you're out and about you want something beautiful to be watching those films on... then look no further. I have been considering a Sony TX1XP against this Samsung X1, but the Samsun
