Reviews for the Samsung X125
Source: PC Pro
Netbook performance at a laptop price, with not enough polish elsewhere to compensate.

Samsung has come up with a sexy-looking laptop for folk who want something more powerful than a netbook but not as big as a 13.3in machine. So far, so good, but then Sammy spoils it by lumping the X125 with a slow, single-core processor. I'd cut it some slack if the X125 was cheap, but you buy the faster, dual-core Pentium-based Acer Aspire 1810TZ for less.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
K125: Slow entry level single core CPU for small and light laptops. Still faster as 1.6 Ghz Atom based systems.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
