Samsung N110 - 10.2in Netbook

 

Samsung unleashes the successor to the outstanding NC10, the N110.

Despite not adding a great deal over the NC10, the N110 is still an outstanding netbook provided you don't care about mooted extras such as video decoding. Thus, once the NC10 is inevitably discontinued, the N110 is one netbook that should be on most...

Samsung N110 notebook

 

Samsung impressed with their NC10, delivering a great spec and the all-important battery life that netbook users crave. The N110 furthers the cause claiming a staggering 9 hours of battery life. But can this little netbook deliver in all areas? Overall...

Excellent keyboard, battery life

Trackpad not great, not the slimmest netbook out there

Overall the N110 is a solid and dependable netbook. The quality of the build is compelling and the keyboard really impresses. It is also a silver nano keyboard, which claims to keep bacteria growth under control, if that is a concern of yours.

Samsung N110 review

 

The Samsung N110 is a gentle revision to the company's successful Samsung NC10 netbook, with record-breaking longevity - REVISED, 17 JULY 2009.

The original Samsung NC10 is still available, and at around £50 less than the N110 it remains an attractive purchase. Either model can stand proud as an excellent netbook compared to competition that often just misses the mark in aspects such as...

Samsung N110 review

 

Samsung's N110, like the N120, is a successor to the company's NC10, the winner of our last netbook round-up.

Samsung N110 review

 

Samsung, long an international laptop player, re-entered the U.S. computer market last year with a functional (if not exactly exciting) slate of systems, including the NC10 Netbook. Despite its generic looks, we liked its long battery life, and the...

Good keyboard and touch pad for a Netbook; excellent battery life.

At the higher end of the Netbook price range; uninspired design.

Samsung's second-generation Netbook, the N110, offers extended life without adding too much battery bulk.

Samsung N110

 

A reasonable warming over of the NC10, but not really worth the extra cash.

Taken on its own merits the N110 is a very appealing machine. The problem is that the differences, such as they are, don't really justify the price hike over the NC10. With Samsung launching several variations on the netbook theme recently, it should...

Review: Samsung N110 netbook

 

A good, but quite expensive, example of an archetypal netbook

The N110 is a great example of a netbook: a solid machine that that strikes a good balance between portability and usability. But it comes in at the top end of the netbook price range.

Samsung N110 (12PBK)

 

The Samsung N110 is a solid netbook with long battery life, but it doesn't make any game-changing innovations.

A 93 percent keyboard. Big battery. Excellent battery life.

Pricey relative to other netbooks. Smudge magnet. Not much different than the NC10-14GB.
