Features:

There are some controversies regarding this netbook. Though it manages a 6 cell battery with light weight and slim built, and fixes the previous too small touchpad, it is still quite expensive at around $500 because the processor is none other than Intel Atom, RAM 1 GB and HDD 160 GB. There are many other mini laptops that provide the same features but are priced under $400, like Lenovo S10.

Clad in glossy black color and having a matte black interior, this netbook has a lid which is prone to smudges, smears and finger prints. The person would be a hero who could keep this netbook look clean for a whole day.

Keyboard consists of individual keys that are broader on the bottom and narrower on the top. There is a big Shift key on the right, and the touchpad is also bigger than the one in Samsung NC10. a scroll zone has also been defined on the right side vertically.

Screen has a display size of 10.1; quite okay but creates difficulty while reading documents or vertically long pages. Also, the glossy display is not s nice idea. Intel Atom performs well while multitasking. Running for almost 6 hours while constantly playing videos; is nothing less than wonderful battery life.

Product’s Unique Selling Points:

  • Nice keyboard and touchpad
  • Excellent battery life
  • Fantastic software suite

Limitations:

  • Glossy display
  • Price

Final Words:

With fine features like webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc and nice keyboard and touch pad; Samsung N110 is priced very high, and this is a drawback. On the other hand, this is really nice netbook with awesome battery life. Excellent battery life and ultra portability are the two things one needs form a netbook; N110 offers both.

  1. I agree, the additional price is slightly off putting when the excellent NC10 is still available and does the same job. That said, if you have the money then an extra few hours of battery life would be welcome.
