“I seem to spend a great deal of my time reviewing notebooks. There’s something about being able to carry all the computing power you need in your bag that I find quite compelling. Although I can fully appreciate the merits of a high-power desktop replacement machine, it tends to be the slim and light notebooks that always catch my eye. Models like the Sony VAIO VGN-S1VP and the Toshiba PortÃ©gÃ© A100 are lovely machines, and I lamented the passing of each of them as the review process ended. But now Samsung is set to prove that it can produce a notebook every bit as sleek and slim as Sony and Toshiba.
There’s no denying the fact that the Samsung X10 Plus looks the part – finished in matt sliver, the case has a stylish, but slightly understated look to it. The lid is adorned only by a single Samsung logo, which is orientated so that it’s the right way up when the machine is open. There is a single central clip that holds the lid in place, with the words “wireless communication” positioned mysteriously below it.”
The Samsung X10 was actually rebranded and sold under the Gateway brand as their 200X/XL model earlier this year and late last year. Its a fantastic notebook which Designtechnica Editor-In-Chief Ian Bell continues to use today. You can view Designtechnica’s Gateway 200XL laptop review here. You will noticed that Designtechnica readers have also scored this system very high.
