Samsung X120 mini latop £299.99 at amazon

Not an amazing deal, but the cheapest I could find. I think this is a better alternative than getting a netbook (yes it does cost more), but a pretty good price for a proper mini laptop.
I was going to buy an "open" one for the same price, on ebay, but why not get a brand new one for the same.
Just be warned the reviews say the battery life isn't good, but that's not an issue for me.
Just thought I would share it.

UPDATE: Amazon only have 5 left atm.

Basic specs are:


Brand: Samsung
Mfr Part Number: NP-X120-JA01UK
RAM Size: 3 GB
Processor Speed: 1.3 GHz
Hard Drive Size: 250 GB
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium
Screen Size: 11.6 inches

does 1.3ghz not seem quite low? i'm no computer expert but i'm looking for something to replace my NC10 that could possibly play Civilisation V

It uses one of Intel's ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processors, so (as I understand it) 1.3 GHz will give a reasonable performance.

The only thing to bear in mind with this laptop is that it doesn't have a built in CD/DVD drive - you'd need to use an external one. But it is incredibly thin and light - it was Samsung's answer to the Macbook Air.

Its going to be way faster than the Atom processor you have and its got 3 times the RAM. The SU4100 is a new type of CPU, for mini laptops, and gives comparable speed to a full laptop a year or so ago. Have a look at the first review. Its good for playing HD movies, so would think you would be ok.

Hmmm, we might have different ideas about appropriate equipment for optimal viewing of HD movies...

However, agree with general thread that these machines are getting faster! Bought one of the Tesco £199 eMachines running the Atom processor and it handled one of my wife's 150Mb* Powerpoint presentations without any problem. I have a fullsize laptop with 3Gb RAM from around four years ago that creaks under a similar load.

Is this better than the compaq mini 311c then?
#7
I was ready to order one of these, but the reviews on the battery really put me off.
Only 2 hours?!?
Shame...........

It will be faster due to having laptop architecture as opposed to netbook. Whether Ion graphics is better than 4500MHD integrated, I am not sure.

I see, is the processor on this laptop dualcore?

If its the SU4100 then yes it is dual core. Passmark CPU score of 983. For comparison N270 scores 305.
#11
i see, what about in terms of form factor and weight is much heavier than the mini 311c
#12
Sammy 1.4kg, HP 311c 1.48kg so not much in it.

Google's your friend (_;)

Samsung = Weight: 1.4 kg
311c = Weight 1.46 kg

Sizes

Samsung = 29.3 cm (L) x 21 cm (W) x 2.5 cm
311c = 28.9 cm (L) x 20.4 cm (W) x 1.98 (min H)/3.06 cm (max H)

Amazon Technical Details say it is, and the reviews indicate it too:

"...World class mobile performance - next generation dual-core processor for power-optimised mobile processing..."

does anyone know of a similar spec one with better battery?
