Samsung NS310 review

 

The rounded and colourful case of this sleek and shiny Samsung netbook makes it stand out from the pack, as do the backlit keyboard and light weight. But do the compromises Samsung has made to achieve the style and slenderness mean it's all flash and...

Sleek, stylish, shiny design, light weight and a useful backlit keyboard

Both battery life and performance are disappointing even for an Atom netbook

Good looking, but this is a case of style over substance. There are cheaper models that are better value, unless the design is really worth the price to you.

Unimpressive battery life tarnishes a real looker of a netbook

Can a netbook still be worth £300? Samsung's latest shiny offering tries to teach us a lesson or two.

Backlit keyboard ; Attractive interior ; Decent keyboard

Expensive ; Underpowered

For the money, you get above-average build quality. There is some creak and flex to the plastic bodywork, but it's otherwise a solid device. No case is included, and you'll want to grab yourself one unless it's going to spend its time in a dedicated...

The 10.1-inch Samsung NS310 netbook offers average performance for a fairly high price. The garish blue case will also make some people want to stab out their eyeballs.

Portable size ; Decent screen

Distinctly average performance ; Poor battery life ; Garish colour won't appeal to all

The Samsung NS310 offers only average performance for a relatively high price. It may well appeal to those seeking a netbook that looks like it's wearing a shell suit, but your money will probably be better spent elsewhere.

Despite the fact that tablets are gaining ground as alternatives to netbooks, Samsung is still releasing new models. The NS310 is a stunning example. It's a clamshell design that's incredibly thin, with beautifully rounded edges and a smart metallic...

A beautifully designed netbook, but battery life isn't great. The NC110 is a better choice for £70 less

The Samsung NS310 is a quite literally shiny example of how the netbook market has matured in three years.

If you're wedded to the notion of a small under-powered netbook, the Samsung NS310 offers all the usual features, but with glitzier casework and shorter battery life.

Samsung were among the first manufacturers to make netbooks, with some of the best devices on the market. We had high hopes for the Samsung NS310 then, but sadly it's little more than a refreshed Samsung N310.

Netbooks may have been overtaken in popularity by the tablet in recent times, but they still have plenty to offer. The Samsung NS310 is a compact, stylish and well made netbook, with a 10.1-inch screen

Power comes from an Intel Atom N550 processor, along with 1GB of memory. Running Windows 7 Starter, the Samsung NS310 is just about fast enough for browsing web pages, but there's plenty of lag apparent, especially if you're carrying out multi-tasking...

Overall, the Samsung NS310 is a disappointment. It looks great, and with the netbook form factor having matured, we were hoping it would deliver on all fronts. It's not exactly cheap, however, and performance is poor, making devices like the Asus Eee...

We take a closer look at the Samsung NS310 netbook and are reminded that looks can sometimes be deceiving…..

Review Will the tablet kill off the netbook? Probably not. Granted the netbook has never quite fulfilled its promise due to a combination of prices that went up with specifications that didn't. Even so, I've yet to find a fondleslab that can truly...

Slim, light and solid, if not particularly cheap, the NS310 isn’t a bad box of tricks for anyone wanting an ultra-portable mini laptop, but isn’t too worried about battery life. The searchlight-bright screen and glowing keyboard are useful additions to...
