Reviews for the Samsung X11
Source: Pocket Lint
Samsung has a reputation for delivering ultraportable notebooks at an aggressive price and the X11 follows a similar theme. At £750 (inc. VAT) it comes with an affordable price tag, especially when you consider it’s running a dual-core processor in the form of the Intel Core Duo T2300 (1.66GHz). For the asking price, the Samsung X11 is a good all-round machine that is powerful enough for most users, especially if you opt for the memory upgrade, just doubt expect it to last a long time away from mains power. This notebook is best suited to a student, or someone who needs to make limited notes and then use the machine for long periods once back at their desk. If this sounds like you, you’ll find a cost-effective answer in the X11.

This Samsung X11 is also is this sensibly priced area, not too bargain basement but not outrageously priced either. The Samsung X11 is available in a variety of specifications, but the one we have here is at the lower end, with 'only' a T2300 Intel Core Duo (1.66GHz) and an 80GB hard drive. Interestingly, on this ‘Shop Samsung’ web site I found the same notebook except with a 60GB drive for only £669 – at this price losing only 20GB of storage space seems well worth it. As it stands Micro Anvika was, surprisingly enough, the cheapest place I could find the exact specification of the notebook I had in front of me.

Samsung's reputation for well-built, attractive laptops precedes it, and an appreciative line of onlookers formed as soon as we had the X11 out of its box. It's available with a range of processor options ranging from the Core Solo T1300 to Intel's top-of-the-range Core Duo CPU, the T2600. Ours came with a Duo T2300, running with a core clock speed of 1.66GHz, and 1GB of PC2-4300 RAM. A notebook that's good looking, quick and enjoyable to use, But consider buying the long-life battery.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
