Samsung N110 (12PBK)


The Samsung N110 is a solid netbook with long battery life, but it doesn't make any game-changing innovations.

A 93 percent keyboard. Big battery. Excellent battery life.

Pricey relative to other netbooks. Smudge magnet. Not much different than the NC10-14GB.

Samsung N110 review


Samsung, long an international laptop player, re-entered the U.S. computer market last year with a functional (if not exactly exciting) slate of systems, including the NC10 Netbook. Despite its generic looks, we liked its long battery life, and the...

Good keyboard and touch pad for a Netbook; excellent battery life.

At the higher end of the Netbook price range; uninspired design.

Samsung's second-generation Netbook, the N110, offers extended life without adding too much battery bulk.

Expert review by : Darren Gladstone (



I'm going to lay this out to you straight: The Samsung N110 is, at its core, a slightly revamped take on the company's NC10. A bit of streamlining (better plastics and a slimmer profile) here and a couple tweaks (immense improvement on the mouse...

Fantastic software suite Crisp, glossy screen

The curse of glossy screens: glare

Offering an improved mouse button and impressive battery life, the Samsung N110 would make a great choice for your next road trip. At $470, it isn't by any means the cheapest netbook on the block, but it certainly is a handsome, functional one. While I...

The curse of glossy screens: glare

Take everything that we liked about the Samsung NC10, but fix the mouse. That's what the N110 is all about.

Samsung N110


Samsung's updated 10-inch netbook continues to beat the competition with an improved touchpad and more than 7 hours of battery life.

Sleeker design than NC10 ; More than 7 hours of battery life ; Improved touchpad ; Roomy and comfortable keyboard

More expensive than similarly configured netbooks

The N110 houses the same netbook ports and slots as the NC10, including 3 USB ports, a 3-in-1 memory card reader, mic and headphone jacks, a VGA port, and an Ethernet jack. Unlike the HP Mini 2140, the N110 lacks an ExpressCard slot for adding a mobile...

Samsung N110 Review


Build quality is above average, with a very strong and durable chassis. When closed the screen cover does have some minor flex, but it doesn't appear to affect the screen. Inside the palmrest and keyboard are super rigid, with barely any movement when...

Classy looks with high-gloss black paint ; 9 hours and 44 minutes of battery life ; Nearly flush mount battery

Keyboard could be more spacious ; No easy access to hard drive

Samsung includes a responsive Synaptics touchpad on the N110, which is easy to use and has no noticeable lag. The touchpad size is about average compared to other 10-inch netbooks, with only a few standing out as being larger. Toshiba has a large touch...
