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.
