Well done, Samsung. While Sony wants us to believe that the Atom CPU is good enough in its latest upscale netbook, Samsung had the right idea and installed a dual-core CULV processor in the latest X Series notebook. Yeah, the Sammy isn’t constructed out of carbon fiber and is quite thick in comparison at 0.95-inches, but at least users will be able to preform all but the utmost intensive tasks with ease. And that’s more important than 0.44-inches.
Besides the unannounced CULV CPU, the notebook has the standard fare: Bluetooth, SD card reader, WiFi, HDMI out, and a 6 cell battery that Samsung claims will rock-out for 9 hours. Prices start at 699 Euros for X120 11-inch and will rise modestly for the X420 14-inch and X520 15.6-inch.
