The Samsung N150 was announced along with a new other models at the start of the year for 2010. It’s the cheapest of the bunch, offering superb bang for buck. It’s other siblings are the semi rugged version of the N150, the NB30, and the N210 / N220 which are similar to the N150 but boast a higher capacity battery life.
I have been very impressed by Samsung’s latest bunch of netbooks and feel they have a great design and stylish look which is more business and professional than cheap and cheerful.
Like most of the new netbooks on the market today, the Samsung N150 feature the new Intel Atom N450 which consumes less power, resulting in longer run times. It also has 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and a 10.1-inch anti-reflective display.
One of the first reviews to appear is from CNET UK. While they didn’t seem to give an over all rating, they did seem impressed enough with it. They found the battery to last 5 hours in a battery eater test, so you can expect it to last 6.5 – 7 hours during normal usage.
They found the keyboard to be a little cramped, even though it runs almost edge to edge, but were impressed with the touchpad which also supports multitouch gestures.
The Samsung N150 is currently available in Blue, Black and Red color options, but will be available in and extra four “tropical colors” very soon.
