Reviews for the Samsung X11

80% Can the X11 perform as a budget business machine? We find out
Source: Pocket Lint English
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)

T2300: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
