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.

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.

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.


This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
