in Samsung N210

The votes have been counted and the scores are in! Brad over at liliputing has put up a Samsung N210 review over here.

Jump on over to Liliputing to see some excellent photos of the new netbook up close and personal. Although UK readers are invited to pop back afterwards to find a cheap netbook through!

Summarising the N210 Review
For those looking for a quick update, here are some highlights:

  • Not the thinnest or lightest netbook around
  • The Samsung N210 is a fine example of a netbook with an attractive case design
  • It’s exclusively available in the US at Best Buy (available to buy more widely in the UK)
  • The plastic does a good job of hiding fingerprints
  • The matte display is worth singling out
  • The screen doesn’t look great outdoors, but neither does it reflect sunlight and turn into a mirror
  • The keyboard is quite attractive, but Brad found that it’s not the easiest keyboard to type on
  • The touchpad is decent, but nothing to write home about
  • Brad had no problem using the Samsung N210 to surf the web
  • With the screen brightness set to about 50% and WiFi enabled the N210 achieved 6 hours and 6 minutes run time
The Samsung N210 features an attractive design, a decent touchpad and good, but not great battery life. While I’m not a huge fan of the keyboard, I did find the laptop to be about as snappy and responsive as any Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail-based netbook I’ve used.

i have down loaded somethings on photobucket and saved them to my desktop but still cant figure out how to do it.

Hi Carley, Windows 7 Starter doesn’t allow you to change the wallpaper for some strange reason that only Microsoft can explain. Of all the possible ways to limit the OS this seemed like an odd one!

However, there are third party tools that will allow you to do, some of these are mentioned in our forum, but a Google search will show you the way.

First Netbook purchased, and it is the Samsung N210…..own also a “full-size” laptop (Toshiba). Debated purchasing a netbook for a year or so and bought the Toshiba last Fall…..recently, I considered the I-Pad….A recent visit to my favorite computer store convinced me to buy My Little Buddy (the N210). That was a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love it! It has run and gone surfing anything and everywhere i threw at it! Very happy with the purchase! Seems to be a very quality machine with speeds that satisfy me. I like all features about it. The keyboard, though small, is easy to use. No regrets in my purchase!
