Samsung N140

 

Samsung's sharp-looking netbook offers snappy Windows 7 performance, good ergonomics, and over 6 hours of battery life.

The Samsung N140 is a worthy successor to the NC10 and N110, and it’s one of our favorite 10-inch Windows 7 netbooks. It offers good performance and a stylish design, plus better sound quality than the Toshiba mini NB205-N330BL. Overall, we prefer the...

Good computer, sketchy wi-fi

 

My wife got this for checking e-mail and doing some light word processing while on business trips, it was one of the few at the time with 802.11n. Unfortunately, we found the wi-fi rather sketchy and have had to send it in to replace the wi-fi module....

Problems with wi-fi, blue screens of death (don't know if blue screens are from windows vs. samsung)

Samsung N140 review

 

Although the Samsung N140 looks rather dated compared to the new generation of netbooks from the likes of Acer and Asus, it's still a solid performer at a reasonable price. The N140's battery life is among the best you can expect to find too. This...

Good build quality ; Fantastic battery life

Offers nothing new in terms of netbook technology

Conclusion Although the Samsung N140 blazes no new netbook trails, we can't knock it. It looks good and it's well-made, but its battery life is its outstanding feature. If you need a low-cost netbook that can last all day away from the mains, look no...

Swelling the ranks of Samsung's award-winning netbook line-up is the Samsung N140.

A first glance around the bodywork and through the specs tells us there’s nothing new to see here. But closer examination shows a fractional upgrade in wireless connectivity, along with a step back in usability with the new recessed trackpad buttons....

This time around, Samsung has given us the opportunity to review N140 – a model that promises both mobility and battery life. It is a direct descendant of the popular NC10 that Samsung originally entered the netbook market with, but with an improved...

Touchpad button ; No HDMI (wishful thinking) ; Touchpad button integrated into a bar ; Stickers make it ”uglier ; Glossy lid

Samsung N140 is the descendant of a model that received plenty of praise and positive criticism. It almost cannot go wrong, and it does not. The design is practically perfect in our eyes; it seems sturdy and trustworthy, and you are not afraid to bring...

Excellent replacement for with NC10, but Windows 7 takes its toll on performance.

At last Samsung have just gone ahead and replaced the NC10 with something better, rather than try to cook up yet another endless variation on the theme. The N140 takes all the good bits of the NC10 but adds a larger HDD, a bigger battery and a more...

Samsung N140 netbook review: first look

 

We take a look at Samsung's latest netbook, the N140, to see whether it's fit for business use.

Our brief play with the N140 has left us wanting more so we're looking forward to putting it through its paces properly in a full review. Check back early next week for our considered verdict.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Samsung has merely put a new name to an old face with the N140. After all, it's a 10.1-inch netbook with Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive. However, this 1.3kg netbook brings a few new tricks...

Samsung pretty much got things right the first time around with its first netbook, the NC10, so it’s no surprise to find the N140 has roughly the same look and feel. Sure, the trackpad has been improved and the mouse buttons now have a better feel to...

Samsung has been a bit keen to get this netbook out, so you’ll only find Windows XP in the current version – we’d wait until a Windows 7 version is offered, as it would make this netbook feel a little fresher. You see, the main problem with the N140 is...

Samsung continues to refine rather than define its netbook range, bringing with it a staid screen but a beefed up battery life, a smoother keypad and the best trackpad on any netbook yet. Sure, there are richer pickings elsewhere but for reliability...
