Reviews for the Samsung X60
Source: IT Reviews
The natural successor to the X50 that Samsung launched last year, this X60 retains the 15.4-inch screen of its predecessor but is loaded with bang-up-to-date features. Powering the X60 is an Intel Core Duo T2500 CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, while backing this up on our review machine was an impressive 2GB of PC5300 DDR2 memory, which gave the X60 very useful performance, as proved by its SYSmark04SE score of 250. This is a well-performing laptop with a good feature set, but the battery life is a bit below what you might expect from a notebook in this class.

Samsung is something of a dark horse in the notebook world. As one of the largest component manufacturers in the world, it produces over 90% of the parts for its own machines, which means it can offer something a little more special than the average run of the mill machine. It’s hard not to be impressed with the Samsung X60. It’s a good machine at a great price and anyone looking to replace his or her desktop PC with a mainstream choice will like it. We managed to get over 3 hours from the battery, which means you can even get a decent mobile experience from it.

I am happy with my purchase, despite the shortcomings I have mentioned above. Overall it turned out to be exactly the machine I had expected. It is definitely not a long-battery life ultraportable notebook, but a well blended mixture of a desktop-replacement multimedia PC with that of a portable notebook. They call it studentbook. Feature-wise, it is a student's dream. Everything you can think of. As far as price is concerned, although it's a very competitive price on the market, I still think this is a bit expensive for the average buyer.

This particular X60 is pretty much fully loaded. Samsung has squeezed in an Intel Core Duo T2500 CPU running at 2GHz, and this is backed up by a generous 2GB of RAM. There’s a capacious 100GB hard disk, which should keep even the most space hungry user happy. But if you do want to free up some space on the hard drive, you can make use of the integrated dual layer DVD writer. The X60 is finished in Samsung’s regular matt silver with black detailing – it looks good, but not what I’d describe as drop dead gorgeous. Lifting the lid reveals a 15.4in widescreen display with a high contrast glossy coating. As always I’ll mention that opinions tend to be split on these coatings, but I quite like them and find the more vivid colours and brighter image a bonus. This particular screen is a fine example and doesn’t suffer from excessive reflections in environments with multiple ambient light sources.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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)
