Samsung X520 – 15.6in CULV Laptop


We take a close look at the X520, Samsung's 15.6in CULV laptop that promises more use between charges.

Samsung X520 review


Unlike some of its more celebrated rivals, the X520's aim is value for money. You'll need to look twice at its spec sheet before you realise that this 15incher is actually thinner than an aluminium unibody 13in MacBook Pro and only a touch heavier,...

Samsung X520 review


The Samsung X520 is undeniably a light 15in laptop with usefully long battery life and enough to firepower to keep most users satisfied. But we weren't enamoured by the build and 'feel', which we hazard will not become a true classic in the line-up of...

A solid, if unspectacular laptop

Battery life is long, looks good, loads of hard drive space

Hefty, no Blu-ray

Samsung X520

Review Samsung X520 Notebook


Legacy? Samsung's X-range is having a downright family gathering

Chic and compact design; Good touchpad; Quiet and cool

Wobbly keyboard; No dual-core processor; Average display

Another design whopper in a 15.6 inch size: The Asus UX50V. Also chic but smaller: The Dell Inspiron 13z. If you want it even slimmer and more exclusive, the MacBook Air would be right.

Quick review of Samsung SGH X520


The SGH-X520 takes all the features of a VGA camera phone and puts them into a chic, smartly designed package with the extra seduction of color. This clamshell phone exudes typical.
