"Samsung N130 - Great Value for Money"

As an overview the Samsung N130 is 10.7" x 7.4" x 1.2" and weighs 2.6 pounds.
It is a netbook computer and has a retail cost of around £200.00. It has a small and compact shape with round eges and the battery and the far back of the netbook raises it around a quarter of an inch.

With an Atom N270 processer, the netbook is ideal for surfing the web and emailing but it tends to be a bit on the sluggish side when having to cope with a lot of applications. Due to its size, the keyboard on the netbook is quite small but even myself, as a secretary, adapted very quickly and it is very easy to touch type on.

It also has 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 3x USB 2.0 ports, 3-in-1 card reader, webcam, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The 10.1-inch LCD is LED backlit which is non-glossy, and has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.

I have had my netbook for around 18 months now in a lovely pink colour. It has served me well during this time and it totally perfect for slipping into an overnight bag. I have found the battery life of the netbook to be around 4 hours which is totally adequate for everyday requirements.

I have used my netbook extensively, but I did find that the letters tended to wear off after around 8 months of use.

I would recommend this netbook to anyone who needs a computer for everday activities such as shopping, emailing and surfing. It is light and compact and very good value for money.

Do shop around though and look at the comparison sites as you can get a far better deal this way. Try and check on a daily basis of new deals as the prices tend to change very quickly. I also managed to get a further discount by using a discount code at checkout, so this is also well worth looking at.

    Good, useful comments about battery life, sluggishness when handling many applications etc. Not easy to review laptops as ultimately they're all pretty similar and the hardware spec and software are more improtant than the build or brand. All the best, Mike.

Thanks to its class-leading engineering optimized processing performance, the N130 also boasts an impressive battery life of up to 6 hours so you can easily keep surfing for longer. With an array of sophisticated wireless communications and data sharing technology the N130 really has everything that you need for life on the move - at a price you can afford.
