Samsung gives this Intel Atom netbook a rugged edge.

Samsung NB30 review

 

This netbook is a rugged customer, making it perfect for the kids

Very light machine ; Build quality ; Ideal for children ; Freefall sensor ; Resistant to spilt liquids ; No shiny super-TFT screen ; Excellent battery life ; Webcam ; Bluetooth ; Wi-Fi ; Sleep n' Charge USB port

Not very stylish ; Limited in processing power

A brilliant netbook with all the trimmings. This is one for people on the road or children likely to drop it

Samsung NB30 review

 

If you're looking for a cheap netbook, there's little to distinguish between various models these days.

The Samsung NB30 is essentially a Samsung N210 with a subtly different case finish and an accelerometer. Battery life was a little longer on this sample though, easily breaking the magical 10 hours barrier.

Samsung NB30 (black) review

 

Another day, another Netbook. Though iPads, tablets, and other laptops keep forging on with technological innovations, the stalwart, cheap Netbook remains largely the same generation after generation. New longer-life Atom processors notwithstanding,...

Solid build, easy-grip lid, matte screen.

Expensive despite a basic feature set; mediocre battery life.

The Samsung NB30 is a new iteration on a standard Netbook theme, with a few slightly ruggedized features that don't quite justify the inflated price.

Samsung NB30 netbook review

 

Top class netbook that's built like a tank but light as a feather

Solid build quality; long battery life; excellent visual display; value for money

Added height from battery cartridge; only one memory slot

The NB30 is as beautifully crafted as it is robust, and has brilliant battery performance. It offers excellent value for money because it's built to last and copes with most tasks you can throw at it, as long as you don't expect high-end number...

Samsung NB30

 

The Samsung NB30's ruggedized frame is meant to withstand the bangs and scuffs of everyday living.

Scratch-proof. Rugged-like features. Inexpensive. Good battery life.

Small hard drive. Not very attractive looking. Small touchpad and mouse buttons.

Samsung NB30

 

Samsung aims its NB30 mini laptop squarely at people looking for a rough-and-tumble netbook, though that market probably isn't huge. At $379, the NB30 costs only $30 more than its sibling, the less-rugged N150. Since the two machines are nearly...

Sturdier than the average netbook ; Keyboard is pleasant to type on

Costs $30 more than its nonruggedized sibling ; A bit flimsy for a supposedly rugged system

The NB30 delivers middle-of-the-road netbook performance, with some durability bonuses.
