Samsung N150 notebook

 

The Samsung N150 is the latest miniature notebook that promises an improved battery life and basic computing on the cheap. But can it deliver? We grabbed one and hit the road to find out. At £280 the Samsung N150 is a standard netbook that is perfect...

Simple design, long battery life

Tight keyboard, uninspiring specs, plastic design

At £280 the Samsung N150 is a standard netbook that is perfect if your needs aren't anything other than emailing, web surfing and basic word processing. More powerful devices are out there, but you do have to pay a premium for those.

Samsung N150 review

 

The Samsung N150 is a thin, sleek netbook with a glossy black lid and a matt black plastic case with a sparkle to it. A red stripe, fast becoming a trademark of Samsung's laptops, runs around the edge of the case, and has a shiny metallic finish. As...

A stylish and light netbook, the N150's average battery life, tiny touchpad and fuzzy screen let it down

Samsung N150 review

 

We see what the Samsung N150 netbook has to offer in this review.

The decent screen and keyboard mean that Samsung’s latest netbook gets off to a good start, but the experience soon sours thanks to average build quality and a disappointing specification.

Samsung N150 netbook

 

A 10in netbook that's useful for basic computing and not much more

Good keyboard, matte screen, light weight, chargeable USB port

Battery life could be improved, too much pre-installed software resulted in lots of nagging reminders, netbook screen design is a little tacky and needs to be finessed

Samsung N150-11 review: Samsung N150-11

 

Samsung N150-11

Sturdy design; cool color palette; matte screen.

Narrow touch pad with flimsy buttons; cramped keyboard; merely average battery life.

Samsung's solid N150 Netbook feels very roadworthy, but other Netbooks have a longer battery life.

Careful! Don't read too hard, or you might break the Samsung N150 netbook I'm writing this review on. From the flex in its Chiclet-style keyboard to screen distortions when you press lightly on the glossy black back of the backlit LCD, the machine...

Responsive multitouch touchpad ; Decent battery life

Feels cheap and fragile ; Middling netbook performance

This middle-of-the-road product delivers your money's worth, and not a dime more.
