Samsung N220 review


Pine Trail-powered and HD-ready, Samsung's latest is more than just a netbook…

With Full HD video playback without the cost of an ION chipset, this is the best all-round netbook you can buy

Samsung N220 review


The Samsung N220 features an unusual glossy colour lid; we think it achieves a nice balance between work and play. The glossy finish will attract plenty of fingerprints, however.

We like the Samsung N220's built-in 3G wireless broadband capabilities, but its impressive design will also win its fair share of fans, as will its excellent battery life.

Review: Samsung N220 Intel Atom powered Netbook


Buying a netbook in 2010 has become an extremely tedious task. Most netbooks offer similar features, run on ideantical Atom powered processors and offer the same lightweight mobile computing options at very similar prices. Samsung's a bit newer to the...

Samsung N220


Samsung have gone through the motions here at yet again, and they do not usually disappoint. We have waited for this particular model with baited breath, a model that has indeed proved popular with users.

Mobility ; Materials ; Weight ; Quality ; Battery

Display size ; No HDMI (wishful thinking)

Samsung N220 is exactly what a netbook should be. It focuses on all the right aspects and is quick enough so as not to make you impatient.

Samsung N220


Samsung's netbook uses Intel's second-gen Atom processor to boost battery life.

Samsung actually includes Linux with the N220, as the HyperSpace quick-boot feature. Although not installed on our review sample, this provides quick access to internet, email and other basic tasks without having to start Windows

Samsung N220 netbook


Samsung N220's netbook has built-in 3G connectivity.

Good design and build quality, build-in 3G wireless broadband, comfortable keyboard, adequate performance

Windows Desktop can be a little cramped, small touchpad, gets warm during prolonged use

Review Samsung NP-N220-JA03DE Netbook


Softly spoken. This 10-inch Pine Trail netbook from Samsung turns

Battery life; Stays cool; Almost silent; Good keyboard feedback; Robust case; Matt screen; Large hard drive

Poor contrast ratio; Noise on webcam pictures

Foremost in terms of affordability is the Asus Eee PC 1005P from about €270. A pricier but more striking alternative would be the Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid. The MSI Wind U135 is available from €319, but the battery life is not as good as the Samsung...

Samsung N220


Subwoofer makes an actual difference to sound quality. Quad-band WWAN should connect to any Australian network. Three USB ports. Excellent keyboard. Two-year international warranty.

Only 1GB RAM. 1024x600 screen. Low-level networking still a netbook staple.

The N220 is a brilliant little netbook that just needs a tiny bit more in the screen, memory and networking department. With the combination of the excellent speakers, keyboard and connectivity though, we think this will appeal to a great many people...
