Samsung have announced three new ultra portable laptops, with the Samsung X120 being the most interesting to us, as it measures a 11.6-inch brining it into netbook territory.
The Samsung X120 is a CULV-based (consumer ultra low voltage) mini-netbook / netbook, which features an Intel Celeron 1.2GHz 723 processor, Intel GS40 chipset and Intel 4500M graphics.
The CPU and chipset combination gives the Samsung X120 more power than most netbooks on the market, and it also features a large 250GB hard drive, and 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
The X120 is also very slim at exactly one inch (2.54cm) and weighs 1.36kg. Like most netbooks, the Samsung X120 doesn’t feature an optical drive of any type.
It makes a good competitor to the Acer 1410 which features similar hardware.
While the Samsung X120 still hasn’t been released in the US it is available in the UK. A newer version of the X120 now comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, rather than Vista, and the updated SU4100 1.3 GHz Processor, with 3GB of Ram.
It’s recommended price is £499, but it’s currently available for less from Amazon UK.
