This is an excellent all-around notebook that has performance to spare. Samsung’s X11 can handle any application, thanks to its Intel Core Duo (1.66Ghz) processor supported by 512MB memory. Other standard features include a 14.1-inch display, 2x2W SRS WOW TruSurround speakers, 512MB GeForce Go 7400 graphics card, 80GB SATA HD, and WLAN a/b/g support. At $1499 (£799), the price is right, too. Here’s the verdict:

Ultimately though, it’s not the Gateway [MX6640b] that does it for the X11, it’s Samsung’s own Q35. This essentially offers the same specs as the X11 but in a smaller, lighter package but with better battery life. As you can get a low end Q35 for £870, it’s difficult to recommend the larger and less stylish X11, especially while its spacebar keeps sticking
