Reviews for the Samsung M60

83% CeBIT 2007: Review Samsung M60 Notebook | Notebookcheck
17 inch Flounder. Samsung is proud of building the smallest, flattest, and lightest notebooks - and rightly so. But even the challenge of designing a 17 inch notebook with adequate performance, does not means for Samsung to put the parts into a 5 cm case. On the contrary, the M60 by Samsung teaches us that also big DTR notebooks might have an elegant appearance.

It also boasts an exceptionally good battery life which means that you'll be able to use the Samsung M60 for a good couple of hours should you decide to lug it out and about with you.
Unlike some of the larger-sized laptops we've reviewed here, using the Samsung M60 as a portable device is doable, as it weighs just 3.2kg. The Samsung M60 looks good too: its sleek metallic silver finish is both stylish and modern-looking. It is also minimalist, in some areas. A single quick-access button launches the AV Station – the Samsung M60's video, photo and music centre – and the front-facing surround sound speakers produce a great audio output. A built-in TV tuner means you can record programmes for later viewing, too. What stands out about the well-balanced Samsung M60, though, is the software that comes with it.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 / 7700 for laptops and technically a higher clocked 8400M GT. The performance is slightly above the 7600 / 7700 and, therefore, it can represent DirectX9 games fluently. For DirectX 10 effects, the power of the card is not sufficient.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.2 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

Samsung reviews


81.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
