Samsung N140 Review


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...

Excellent keyboard and touchpad, Bright and colorful matte screen, Above average performance, Good sound quality, USB port charges gadgets with system off

Glossy lid smudges easily, Narrow touchpad button, Inserted SD Cards protrude from slot, Annoying trialware pop-ups

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...

Samsung N140 review


If you're looking for a well-made 10in netbook, you can't go far wrong with a Samsung. That's what we've found so far anyway - but will the new N140 buck the established trend?

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....

Samsung N140


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...

Design ; Materials ; Display ; Weight ; Quality

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.

Samsung N140


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 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...

A great netbook with stunning battery that lacks a few next-gen extras

Massive battery life, good looks, great mouse and keyboard

Not many new features, Windows XP still on board

Samsung N140 Netbook


The N140 is one of the first netbooks to be available in the market that comes preloaded with Windows 7 Starter Edition. The top has a glossy finish which makes the netbook extremely prone to fingerprints. This 10.1” netbook features a bright display...

The Samsung netbook is a good buy as it scores on ergonomics, good battery life and is one of the first one to come with Windows 7.
