Reviews for the Samsung X360

80% Samsung X360 13.3-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Samsung's X360 is most closely compared to the MacBook Air and other ultrathin laptops. With its under 3 pound weight, it is one of the lightest on the market, even if it is a bit thicker at the hinge. What really sets this system apart though is its incredible display that provides an incredible picture with some amazing deep blacks. Since Samsung's X460 has already been announced, pricing on the Samsung X360 makes this an excellent ultraportable choice for those on a budget.

Samsung - X360 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Ultraportable is definitely the current buzzword in the computer notebook market, the lighter and thinner the better. The benchmark was raised with the arrival of Apple's MacBook Air, and Samsung's response for Windows users is the X360. Samsung has aimed this ultraportable rival to the MacBook Air squarely at the business user who likes something a bit stylish but with plenty of functionality, security and damage proofing. Although it's well priced in this range, it has serious PC rivals, like Sony's VAIO VGN-Z21MN/B that has a built-in DVD drive and more powerful processor and graphics card.

80% Samsung X360-34P
Source: Laptop Mag English
This impressively thin, luxury ultraportable offers good battery life and performance along with a head-turning design. It may be a little late to the razor-thin notebook contest, but the Samsung X360-34P has a lot more to offer than just a low profile. If you have the money and you’re torn between the style of the MacBook Air ($2,499 with a 128GB SSD) and the functionality of the Lenovo ThinkPad X301 ($2,613 when similarly configured to the X360), the Samsung X360-34P delivers the best of both worlds. Although it lacks an optical drive, this machine (about $2,299 online) has an excellent keyboard, is exceedingly light, and will suit road warriors who require long endurance.

It's easy to be impressed with the Samsung X360, as it's clearly a laptop designed to make a statement. It also delivers both in terms of usability and battery life, making it one of the most appealing ultraportables around.

The Samsung X360's lightweight design and extra-long battery life are its main attractions, and, while Samsung couldn't squeeze a DVD drive into the chassis, it has found room in the budget for an external model. Similarly impressive, at this price, is the inclusion of a 128GB SSD. Build quality is acceptable but, if you're expecting something similar to the aluminium-clad MacBook Air, you'll be disappointed. On the whole, though, this is a decent effort from Samsung. If you can stomach a slight drop in screen size, however, Sony's Vaio TT series is well worth a look. Only slightly heavier, the TT has the bonus of a built-in DVD drive, which may be enough to swing it for some.

Ever since the hype-driven launch of the Macbook Air, the biggest players in the laptop market have been striving to launch their own luxury ultraportables. Sony and Lenovo are the two who have been most successful, the former with the VAIO Z-series and the latter with the superb X300. Very light, but there's little else here to threaten the rivals from Sony and Lenovo.

Samsung's X360 certainly doesn't come cheap. But with the 128GB SSD drive on board, you wouldn't expect it to be a huge bargain. Overall it's a solid machine for indoor and outdoor use. Lenovo's X200 now finds itself facing much stiffer competition.

As a re-entry into the premium ultra-portable market the Samsung X360 has many admirable qualities; its great value price versus performance being primary among them. This makes it ideal for those who want a powerful ultra-portable but can't afford the alternatives, but there are one or two things Samsung needs to work on before it can compete with the heavyweights.

Samsung X360 Clouds Apple Air
Source: Tom's Guide English

Sony’s Vaio Z’s price put it in a slightly different ultra-luxury category than the X360, which represents mere luxury. The Envy and Z are also bigger and heavier than the X360. ZoomFrom our perspective, Samsung’s X360 represents the best value for a 13.3-inch luxury ultralight. Sure, there are cheaper ultralights on the market (from companies like HP and Toshiba), but they would never be described as attractive. Of the pretty ones, this one is the cheapest, and the performance isn’t shameful, either.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


SP9300: Power efficient Core 2 Duo CPU with full 6 MB level 2 cache and all Penryn features (like VT-x). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
