The latest laptop from Samsung, the X360, competes in the same 13.3-inch screen class as Apple's Macbook Air but is a little lighter. Running an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a 128GB solid-state drive, it should start and shutdown faster than laptops with hard-disk drives. Other features include a Webcam, Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity. The X360's battery life is between 6 hours and 10 hours depending on usage, according to Samsung.
