Samsung X420 Notebook -


Samsung bumped up their X-series of ultra portable notebooks with a new addition recently. Do stick around if you'd like to find out about the 14-inch X420 and why we think it's a winner. We aren't making any references to Coldplay by the way.

Samsung X420 review


Samsung's X420 is slim, light and relatively inexpensive, but it's far from perfect.

relatively light weight (although the one you see in the shop is minus the battery pack - which makes all the difference). Good battery life though. Like having an external DVD drive supplied with it, as I don't usually carry that around.

For those who think a netbook is too small and a laptop too big, this is a good compromise. Big enough to work on documents and small enough to be portable. Good battery life. Easy to use.
