Review Samsung NP-N220-JA03DE Netbook


Softly spoken. This 10-inch Pine Trail netbook from Samsung turns

Battery life; Stays cool; Almost silent; Good keyboard feedback; Robust case; Matt screen; Large hard drive

Poor contrast ratio; Noise on webcam pictures

Foremost in terms of affordability is the Asus Eee PC 1005P from about €270. A pricier but more striking alternative would be the Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid. The MSI Wind U135 is available from €319, but the battery life is not as good as the Samsung...

Samsung N220 10-Inch INTEL ATOM N450 “PineTrail” Netbook


Despite what the folks in Cupertino may lead you to believe, the netbook form factor will continue to survive in the face of these new-fangled Internet tablets. The technology continues ...

Great finishes and sense of quality ; Impressive battery life ; Chiclet-style keyboard is comfortable ; Handles live video streaming over Internet

Awkward keyboard design (enter key, right shift key) ; Loaded with too much bloatware ; Performance of Pine Trail is a little disappointing ; Very weak built-in speakers

This Samsung netbook otherwise looks like a pretty standard netbook in stature, but it is interesting that the multi-card reader (SD/SDHC/MMC) is located in the front rather than on the sides. Similarly, there is the power slider switch in the front,...

A 10.1-inch netbook clad in Samsung's unique crystal design finish. This stylish device is powered by the Intel Pine Trail platform, and comes with a long-lasting 6-cell battery.

Samsung N220 (Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail) 10.1-inch Netbook Review


A simple compact corrugated box is all that the Samsung N220 comes in. Opening up the box will reveal the following items inside the box...

The biggest drawback to any netbook on the market today is the current Atom processor. Windows Experience Index shows that the Atom N450 is the weakest link in the overall package. The hard drive is the fastest component in the N220 netbook system but...

Works well with Pixel Qi screen.


I picked up Samsung N220 so that I can use it with my new Pixel Qi screen. It was easy to install and is working well

SSD and 2GB of RAM would've been beautiful but I'll upgrade it myself

Consumer review by:

ultra portable to stay connected


its not a gaming laptop but i knew that before i bought it.

boots pretty fast. decent battery. i bought this instead of lugging my 17' laptop on a recent trip. i immediately upgraded the ram though to 2gb. i think it was a good deal for $299. i plan on connecting it to control a new telescope. comes with win7...

some bloatware that i still haven't got around to removing. keyboard layout takes getting used to but i expected that with it's small size

Samsung N220 netbook


The Samsung N220 is a 10.1in netbook with built in 3G mobile broadband access; it's the successor to the Samsung NC10. Sold directly through Optus and...

Good design and build quality, build-in 3G wireless broadband, comfortable keyboard, adequate performance

Windows Desktop can be a little cramped, small touchpad, gets warm during prolonged use

We like the Samsung N220's built-in 3G wireless broadband capabilities, but its impressive design will also win its fair share of fans, as will its excellent battery life.

Samsung's new netbook is all about the battery life

Suerb battery life ; Well built ; Good features

Expert review by:

Samsung N220 review


The Samsung N220 isn't a hugely ambitious netbook, but it looks good, offers excellent battery life and is highly usable. We like it

Highly usable and portable ; Matte display eliminates screen reflections

Other netbooks offer higher-resolution displays

The Samsung N220 isn't a particularly ambitious netbook, but it's a good machine nevertheless. You'll find better displays on other netbooks, but a supremely comfortable keyboard and trackpad, excellent battery life and a highly stylish appearance help...
