Samsung X460 14.1in Notebook


We've seen the X360, how does its larger and cheaper 14.1 cousin, the X460, fare?

This aberration aside the basic design and build of the X460 is very strong. There are no annoying creaking panels, very little flex in the keyboard and though the glossy finish won't suffer bumps and scrapes gladly, the machine itself shouldn't suffer...

Samsung X460 notebook


Following the staggering amount of publicity Apple's super-skinny MacBook Air received, with Mac fanatics waxing lyrical about how you can stick it in an envelope and risk accidentally posting it, South Korean manufacturer Samsung decided it could do...

Amazing light weight, comfortable keyboard, power and features

Cheap looking plastics, average screen resolution

In taking on the MacBook Air, the X460 has a huge amount to live up to. In many ways, it succeeds, and then some. If you’re determined to get one of the lightest and thinnest laptops, without compromising on screen size, performance or features, then...

Samsung X460 review


A highly portable and practical laptop with great all-round performance

Good battery life ; HDMI ; Networking options

Mixed build quality ; Screen res could be higher

A well specified and performing laptop that only loses points due to the choice of plastics used inside the chassis

Samsung X460 review


The Samsung X460 is basically a Samsung X360 with upgraded parts (a slightly larger screen and a discrete GPU). It's even smartly priced considering what's on the table.

We're pretty impressed with the Samsung X460. Oh, sure, we have a couple of quibbles about choices such as the discrete but low-end GPU (obviously a cost-cutting measure), but that doesn't stop us from recommending this machine. It's a little outside...

Samsung X460


The Samsung X460 is a stylish and well speced thin-and-light notebook.

Its 14.1-inch LED display is excellent in most conditions and it offers an HDMI output.

Its trackpad is far too small.

Welcome back, Samsung. You've been laying low in the U.S. market when it comes to notebooks, but after kicking the tires on the X460, I can honestly say you were missed. I mean, you manage to craft a 14.1-inch thin-and-light all-purpose notebook that's...

Many great features in a slim package Bright, easily-viewable screen

Could've used a better discrete GPU

Samsung X460 review: Samsung X460


Samsung X460

Very slim and lightweight; distinctive look; excellent battery life; solid brushed-metal construction; comfortable keyboard.

Overpriced compared with comparable 14-inch laptops; you'll need to appreciate a black-and-red color scheme.

If you want a thin-and-light 14-inch laptop or just love the distinctive look, the Samsung X460 is an impressive piece of hardware, but you'll find better value elsewhere.

Samsung X460-44P


The Samsung X460-44P is a solid—and stylish—first offering into an already crowded U.S. laptop market.

Great design. Lightweight. Big 14-inch widescreen. HDMI-out port. Comfortable keyboard. Very good battery life.

Available only through e-tailers. Needs higher resolution and extended battery options.
