Samsung N510 Review


Even though it's taken its sweet time coming to market, we like the Samsung N510. This 11.6-inch netbook combines souped up graphics with very good audio quality. Some may prefer the Ion-powered HP Mini 311 ($583 when similarly configured), which...

Surprisingly good audio, Excellent HD video experience, Comfortable keyboard and touchpad, Best battery life among Windows 7 Ion netbooks, Very good speakers

A bit pricey, Long boot time, Outperformed by other Ion netbooks

Review Samsung N510 Ion Netbook


Pocket Player. Nvidia's ION chip set has already provided for a s

Robust case; Very good workmanship; Low emissions; Bright, non-glare display with WXGA resolution; Fairly fast graphic; HDMI; Good keyboard; Good mobility; Smooth FullHD rendering possible (dependent on format, software and files); Good converting...

Port distribution; Contrast poor display with pallid colors; Only 1 RAM slot; Poor VGA quality

The Samsung N510 is the first available ION netbook and therefore still without competition. Other manufacturers, like Lenovo with its Ideapads (S12) or HP with the Compaq Mini 311 want to follow and also launch devices based on ION.

Samsung N510 - 11.6in nVidia ION Netbook


We've seen the power of nVidia's Ion in a nettop, now Samsung brings it to a netbook as well.

Samsung N510 review


The first ION netbook is here, capable of playing HD video and demanding games. But does the N510's performance come at too great a cost?

Worried ION is dead in the water? Think again, the Samsung N510 lives up to the NVIDIA hype

Samsung N510 notebook


Samsung's N510 netbook is one of the first machines featuring Nvidia's ION technology to hit the market. With a relatively powerful graphics card alongside the regular Intel Atom processor, the N510 offers a much more rounded package than most rival...

Sharp, matt screen ideal for outdoor use, good 3D performance, excellent keyboard and design

Bland, colours lack vibrancy

With a mid-level price, the Samsung N510 strikes a good balance between performance, portability and comfort. Its large keyboard is one of the best you’ll find on a netbook, and despite a lack of vibrancy the screen is also sharp and highly usable.

Samsung brings the Nvidia Ion to the masses

Ion graphics ; Great keyboard ; Good battery power ; Connectivity

Intel Atom

The first ultraportable to include Nvidia's Ion technology doesn't dissapoint. It's fast, highly portable and has a nice interface to work with

Samsung N510 review


The Samsung N510 is the first netbook to use the nVidia Ion graphics chipset - in other words, the first netbook that can really do video.

At the heart of practically every netbook beats a slow but steady Intel Atom, chosen for its worthy low power requirements. Now Samsung has, with nVidia's help, opened up the multimedia possibilities in the Samsung N510, making the first Ion netbook;...

Its 720p-capable screen and Ion chipset are welcome, but its battery life is poor compared to the N120.

A decent netbook, but the price is too much for what you're getting

Pics look great thanks to Nvidia graphics

Product Specifications

The Samsung N510 is compact and light but still packs an exceptional visual punch. Its dedicated nVIDIA GeForce Go 9400M graphics card delivers 10x faster image processing than existing netbooks. So movies are more lifelike. Sports are delivered in smooth, flowing detail. And 3D images almost leap out of the screen.
