Samsung N130 Review

 

We're fans of the budget-priced Samsung N130's ergonomics. However, when compared to the N140, which is only $50 more, it comes in behind in overall performance and--more importantly--battery life. If your budget is flexible, the N140 is definitely the...

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

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.

Samsung N130 review

 

Can this 10.1" netbook swim in an already drowning netbook market?

Cheap ; Good battery life ; Portability ; Nice build

Screen isn't very bright ; Protruding battery

A refreshing offering to the netbook gods, this machine avoids the extensive feature count for a simple approach to highly portable computing

Samsung N130 netbook review

 

We take a look at one of Samsung's latest attempts to break the netbook market, the N130.

Although an average netbook in all the specs, the Samsung N130 is enjoyable and comfortable to use and proves to be a sturdy reliable machine you can take out when you are on the move.

The OG of NETBOOKS

 

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
