The World's Lightest 14in Notebook?

It seems clever people work at Samsung. Just take a look at the cracking 19in notebook it unveiled yesterday, the lovely X50 we reviewed in March and the stunning Q30 that made us drool in January. Well, today’s Sense X1 could usurp them all.



At just 23mm thick it ties with the Asus V6800V as the thinnest 14+ inch notebook on the market and, at just 1.7Kg, it is the lightest. Judging by our experience with the X50, the display should be beautiful too and it sports an optimum widescreen resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels.

Graphics are powered by a 128MB ATI X300 card, there’s 512MB of DDR2 RAM as standard, an 80GB HDD and a Pentium M753 1.2GHz processor. Given that Samsung rightly expects the X1 to be on the move as much as machines with smaller footprints, it has taken the precaution of waterproofing the keyboard, while the built in DVD rewriter is moved above it to save space.



A strong focus on multimedia sees the integration of DNIe (Digital Natural Image Engine) and DNSe (Digital Natural Sound engine) technology, both of which are hotly touted but which we have yet to see in action. Lastly, but far from least, it a truly unreal battery life which Samsung claims will last 13.5 hours. This must be via a second battery (like the 12.5 hour C1320 from Fujitsu Siemens), but we just can’t see where it would fit.

Right, I am declaring a course of foot stamping until Samsung delivers a Sense X1 to our labs.

Here we go: Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp, Stamp…
