Samsung N130 Review - A Review of the


Bundled with several useful apps and utilities, Matte screen, Excellent keyboard and touchpad, Bundled with several useful apps and utilities

Disappointing battery life, Weaker sound quality than N140, SD Cards stick out when inserted, Underside gets uncomfortably hot

The 2.5 x 1.4-inch touchpad is also the same size as the N140's, and is wide enough to move across the screen without having to pick up your finger too much. The single mouse button bar beneath is a little stiff. We'd prefer to see distinct left and...

Samsung N130 Netbook Review


In the world we live in, portability is becoming more and more one of the top decision-making factors on how we purchase electronics. The biggest and baddest hardware you have was once a thing to show off, however, now portability is taking the cake....

Excellent battery life over five hours ; Decent price to performance ratio ; Inexpensive at under $300

No integrated bluetooth

I have been using the Samsung N130 for some time now and, while having an aging Atom processor, it still is powerful enough for my every-day usage. I have actually replaced my larger laptop with this netbook when I travel about. The only issues I have...

Samsung N130-13B 10.1-Inch Slate Blue Netbook Review


The Samsung is an unusually solid netbook with good performance and doesn't look like a cheap kids toy. I've seen quite a few positive comments on this model and it offers a good mix of styling and performance. As with all netbooks it won't blow other...

I'm not drooling over netbooks as I once was, but I think this one would be high up on my list if I was planning on getting one. It hits does well where it needs to and looks good to boot. The $300 price is pretty tough to beat.

A neat little net book that will meet yo


This is a nice net book. Built like a little tank. I like the matt finish. Got it for my wife so we got the pink one. Funny I find myself using it much more than her. For a 6 cell battery the battery life seems a little low. We have been getting about...

Very well constructed, real good customer service, priced to sell.

Keyboard and touch pad hard to get used to. Sound is low even at max

I don't know if it was me or what, but if you don't get some kind of anti-virus set up before you log on to the internet you may get a virus very quickly. Altogether this netbook is very compact and slick looking and I am very happy with my purchase....

Nice and compact ; Nice keyboard size ; Pretty fast (not fastest out there) ; Good long battery life ; Last about 6 hours

Speaker sucks ; Gets a little hot

Excellent netbook


I was a bit afraid to buy refurbished-but works like new and I am very pleased with the results of this netbook. Will buy again from this website.

A fine little machine
