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,...

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...

Samsung N220 netbook

 

Samsung N220's netbook has built-in 3G connectivity.

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 N220 review

 

The Samsung N220 features an unusual glossy colour lid; we think it achieves a nice balance between work and play. The glossy finish will attract plenty of fingerprints, however.

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.

Pine Trail-powered and HD-ready, Samsung's latest is more than just a netbook…

With Full HD video playback without the cost of an ION chipset, this is the best all-round netbook you can buy

Samsung N220

 

The Samsung N220 is a netbook that is exclusively available to Optus users. Its built-in 3G quad-band module allows you connect to the Internet wirelessly, while its 6-cell battery provides enough juice to last half a day.

Small form factor; Great keys; Comes with 3G quad-band module; Great sound; Battery life

Glossy finish prone to fingerprints; 1GB of RAM; Windows 7 Starter
