Reviews for the Samsung X1

Samsung X1
Source: What Laptop English
Samsung has reinvented itself this year as a company that specialises in ultraportable laptops. This doesn’t mean simply making them as small as possible, as the 14-inch screen of the Samsung X1 (£1409 inc. VAT) proves. Rather, the company has designed some stunningly slim and lightweight machines, as the 24mm chassis, which weighs 1.7kg, attests too. To get a chassis this slim, Samsung has had to move the optical drive away from the side of the casing and place it on the mainboard. So when you press a button, the drive lid pops up. This makes getting discs in and out easier, but doesn’t allow for any upgrade path. Fortunately, the dual-format DVD rewriter is as cutting-edge as you’ll find, so this won’t be a problem.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
