Samsung NC110 review

 

A netbook with a bargain price, huge battery life and superb build

Low price tag ; Huge battery life ; Excellent build quality ; Slim and light ; Good looking

Basic performance ; Bloated with useless software ; Limited screen adjustability ; No HDMI input ; Slightly grainy screen

What do you do when you want to catch the eye of people torn between the growing domination of tablets such as the Apple iPad 2 or Motorola Xoom and a much more user-friendly, but far less trendy, netbook? You bring out a netbook that's so cheap you...

Samsung NC110-AM4UK review

 

If you really don't need to do more than send the odd email and browse the web while you're on the move, and perhaps open an Office document from time to time, then the Samsung NC110-AM4UK could be the ideal option for you.

Small and lightweight, the Samsung is a great travelling companion if your demands aren’t great. But should you need something that is both portable and that you can work on, you should look elsewhere. Also, the styling might not be to everyone’s taste...

Samsung NC110 review

 

A well-built netbook with a great keyboard, but it suffers from the usual netbook problems: limited power and a low-resolution screen

NC110

 

The Samsung NC110 is a lovely looking netbook, that's the perfect spiritual successor to the original portable computers. It's cheap, it's light and it also has great battery life.

Attractive, Well Built, Low Cost, Amazing Battery Life

Samsung NC110 matte-screen netbook

 

Review Tight spots don't come much trickier than the one netbook makers find themselves in. Squeezed from above by prettier, more interesting tablets, netbooks such as Samsung's £350 N350 [1] are barely appealing alternatives to Apple's glossy view of...

It’s easy to see the NC110 as indicative of the netbook's path over the next few years. The amount of power on tap has slowly increased, the price has gently declined, but neither is really moving fast enough, to say nothing of the dire lack of...

Samsung Netbook NC110

 

Often for the person who just does Word Processing, works the family accounts using a Spreadsheet, sends and receives Email, and of course browses the Internet a Netboot is all one will need. One to consider might be this Samsung offering.

Doing my Internet searches found the Samsung Netbook NC110 at £269.08 with free delivery

Samsung NC110

 

Netbooks are so formulaic these days, it's difficult to stand out from the crowd. Samsung, in a small way, has managed that with the $330 (price as of May 11, 2011) NC110. With only the standard netbook 10.1-inch display, the typical 250GB hard drive,...

Good ergonomics ; Handsome styling

Too much unnecessary software ; Sluggish performer out of the box

The NC110 is both easy on the eye and comfortable to use. Trim the software, and this netbook comes alive.

Samsung NC110 Review

 

The Samsung NC110 (which lists for $329, but can be found online for $289) isn't the fastest or longest-lasting single-core netbook on the block. However, this netbook offers a stylish design, good keyboard and touchpad, glare-free display, and...

Attractive design, Comfortable keyboard and touchpad, Good sound quality for the size, Long battery life, Light weight

Below-average performance, Narrow mouse buttons

Samsung NC110 Review and Ratings

 

While some performance issues hold the NC110 down, this is the only netbook to offer strong battery life, 3D sound, and a useful Fast Start feature that will have you working—in Windows—in seconds.

Strong battery life ; Fast Start for quick shutdowns and restarts ; 3D audio

Subpar performance results, even for a netbook ; Herky-jerky real-world performance

While this netbook doesn’t break any performance records, it’s not without its perks. Bundled software includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010, which we like for netbooks, since it gives you real Office productivity for free, without being trialware....
