Source: IT Reviews
Samsung's X22 joins a very competitive market and its feature set and price point make it a strong contender, but the comprise between weight and battery life does let it down.

The Samsung X22 is a powerful and portable machine that misses out on Hot Product status only because its battery life is less than ideal. If, however, battery life isn't a concern this is a great all-round notebook at an excellent price.

While Vista improves on XP in various areas, many companies have concluded that the practical benefits don't justify the expense and upheaval of migrating. And so, in accordance with the time-honoured principle of giving the people what they want, Samsung has produced the X22, a new business laptop that proudly bears a "Designed for Windows XP" sticker. Physically, the X22 is close kin to the R20, which last month achieved a place on our A List thanks to its professional specification, solid build and sub-£500 price. The X22 can't claim such a head-turning price, but it shares the compact 14.1in form factor, this time wrought in stylish magnesium alloy, and at 2.4kg it's almost as portable. The 1,280 x 800 screen resolution is nothing to shout about, but it's a sensible choice for a panel this size: any higher and text starts to become too small for comfortable long-term use.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400: This DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI is the direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphic card for laptops. It features the Avivo HD video engine. The performance is not enaough for DX 10 games and high settings.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
