Samsung Notebook Brings a Touch of Class to the Privile...


It's a good thing you took all of your money out of stocks in August and invested heavily in wheat futures, because now all those Wall Street schmucks are

Impeccable elegance gives you coffeeshop je ne sais quoi. Support for SD, Memory Stick and xD is rare and cool. Overall high performance marks for a thin and light notebook

Price: This is a great deal in a $900 machine. $1,600? Not so much. Lack of Blu-ray is puzzling, especially considering the HDMI-out

Welcome back, Samsung. You've been laying low in the U.S. market when it comes to notebooks, but after kicking the tires on the X460, I can honestly say you were missed. I mean, you manage to craft a 14.1-inch thin-and-light all-purpose notebook that's...

Many great features in a slim package Bright, easily-viewable screen

Could've used a better discrete GPU

I'm pretty impressed with the Samsung X460. Oh, sure, I have a couple quibbles about choices like the discrete but low-end GPU (obviously a cost-cutting measure), but that doesn't stop me from recommending this machine. It's a little outside the range...

Samsung X460-44P


A sleek and stylish business notebook that sports a brilliant display, discrete graphics, and good battery life.

Although it’s not quite the lightest 14.1-inch notebook around, the Samsung X460-44P is certainly the thinnest, and it offers more style than all of its business notebook competitors. Plus, this machine provides a good one-two punch of performance and...

Samsung X460-44P


The full-size keyboard, which is full-size, is similar to the keyboards found on the aluminum MacBook and the Sony Z590. There's more than adequate spacing between the keys, but the keys themselves are smaller than traditional ones, at 1.6cm by 1.6cm...

Great design. Lightweight. Big 14-inch widescreen. HDMI-out port. Comfortable keyboard. Very good battery life

Available only through e-tailers. Needs higher resolution and extended battery options

A gorgeous design and good performance features make the X460-44P a worthy ambassador of the Samsung brand.

Samsung X460 - Black Beauty


The Samsung X460 is a black beauty that pretty much 'floats' lightly in your hands while delivering good performance. This is no ultra low voltage machine despite its 1.84kg weight - it's a full sized 14-inch notebook with a Core 2 Duo processor that...

Review: Samsung X460 notebook


When Samsung first announced that it would be selling its notebooks in the US, the models that received the most attention were the lightest, thinnest ones. This is usually the case-they are the most lust-worthy models from the lineup-but the question...

Review: Samsung's X460 Notebook Not The Work Of A Newbie


Samsung's new X460 notebook, among its first in its return to the U.S. PC space, is not the work of a novice. The Test Center gives it a look.

Samsung X460


Internal memory is 8Mb which isn't bad for a phone of this class. Samsung state that the SGH-X460's talktime is up to 3.8 hours with up to 230 hours standby time. The battery life isn't great, but remember this is a tiny phone aimed at casual users.

Samsung X460 -


With a mass of 1.84kg, this 14.1-inch Core 2 processor based notebook struck us as a decent weight to haul around for full fledged notebook functionality. However, the notebook did feel slightly more hefty than usual towards the rear which we attribute...
