Samsung NB30 (black)

 

Another day, another Netbook. Though iPads, tablets, and other laptops keep forging on with technological innovations, the stalwart, cheap Netbook remains largely the same generation after generation. New longer-life Atom processors notwithstanding,...

Solid build, easy-grip lid, matte screen.

Expensive despite a basic feature set; mediocre battery life.

The Samsung NB30 is a new iteration on a standard Netbook theme, with a few slightly ruggedized features that don't quite justify the inflated price.

Samsung NB30 Review - A Review of the Samsung NB30

 

Scratch-resistant outer coating, Spill-resistant keyboard, Good audio quality

Shorter battery life than competition, Narrow touchpad button

Thankfully, the NB30 runs much cooler than the N210. After playing a Hulu video clip at full screen for 15 minutes, we measured temperatures between the G and H keys and the touchpad at just 87 degrees Fahrenheit, and the middle of the underside was...

The Samsung NB30's ruggedized frame is meant to withstand the bangs and scuffs of everyday living. But its features and components don't do anything to distinguish it from the rest of the netbook market.

Scratch-proof. Rugged-like features. Inexpensive. Good battery life

Small hard drive. Not very attractive looking. Small touchpad and mouse buttons

Samsung NB30

 

Samsung aims its NB30 mini laptop squarely at people looking for a rough-and-tumble netbook, though that market probably isn't huge. At $379, the NB30 costs only $30 more than its sibling, the less-rugged N150. Since the two machines are nearly...

Sturdier than the average netbook ; Keyboard is pleasant to type on

Costs $30 more than its nonruggedized sibling ; A bit flimsy for a supposedly rugged system

The NB30 delivers middle-of-the-road netbook performance, with some durability bonuses.

Tiny gets semi-tough in Samsung netbook

 

The NB30 might not be Mil-Spec rugged, but it takes toughness among netbooks to a new level.

Durable case, hard drive protected from shock, portable

Slower performance than most laptops

Review: Samsung Gets A Grip With NB 30 Pro

 

It's clear with this netbook that Samsung is making a statement that it doesn't want to stay with the pack.

Samsung NB30 Netbook

 

Today we have the Samsung NB30 netbook on the test bench and we are going to see if Samsung has a netbook that can separate itself from the competition. In the netbook market they are a ton of competitors and with the good majority of them using the...

Solid Construction ; Keyboard Easily Replaceable ; Portable ; Good Value

CPU limits performance (Intel Atom Processor) ; Pre-installed software decreases performance

While the netbook craze might not be as big as it was a couple years ago, buying a netbook still makes a lot of sense for a person who wants a small and affordable computer that is ultra-portable. The Samsung NB30 has pretty standard hardware...

Samsung NB30 Netbook

 

Samsung's brand new NB30 10 inch netbook packs quite a punch, especially given its size. With a full day's worth of batteries, light weight and incredibly durable design and features it offers excellent mobility for those on the go.

Well built ; Beautiful screen ; Incredible battery life

Could use more memory

So, here we are at the end. Is the NB30 a decent netbook? Well, yes. Is it a pretty damn good netbook? Yes as well. As far as netbooks go, the NB30 is exactly as I would expect: Intel Atom, 10″ screen, light, small, and it’s packing some serious...
