REVIEW

Small Laptops Guide managed to get our hands on the Samsung N145. We are a fan of the Samsung netbook range, they are stylish and excellent value for money, without losing anything on performance. This small laptop offering also proves to be the same. 1GB of memory, an Intel Atom N450 Processor and 3 USB 2.0 ports plus up to 10 hours battery life help to make this a great little laptop.

The Samsung N145 has a very simple and stylish look, with Samsung opting to for a matt finish rather than a shiny one. The case on this small laptop is sturdy and robust and opening the lid is no issue with one hand or two. The hinges seem strong as well in comparison to other machines. This netbook can definitely handle use of heavysmall laptops handed men and The Samsung N145 is also available in a pink colour making it very appealing to women as well.

One thing to remember is although Samsung have advertised this machine as having a battery life up to 10 hours, this is really more like 6. Still this is longer than most similar items and definitely longer than most.

The keyboard is also easy to use although the touchpad is a little small, however it does seem robust and could handle plenty of clicking. The display is also clear, a standard Intel Graphics card and Atom processor make it extremely similar to its competitors regarding specifications.

The best things about the N145 are the noise and temperature levels. The machine is extremely quiet and stays cool despite heavy use.

Overall at such a cheap price, this stylish netbook is definitely a great buy, its affordable price of under £200 is a steal. We often admire the Samsung netbooks here at Small Laptops Guide and this offering is no different.

REVIEW

We’re big fans of the Samsung range of netbooks, as the Samsung NC10 and its follow-up, the Samsung N110, truly define what a netbook could and should be. So, can this latest version, the Samsung N130, really live up to expectations? Check out our review of the Samsung N130 and find out for yourself…

The first thing you notice about the Samsung N130 is that is has a more rounded design than previous models, so you won’t find any sharp edges just a smooth edge that feels good to the touch. This styling isn’t only on the outer case but also on the inside.

This styling makes the Samsung N130 feel solid to the touch and while we don’t think it as robust as the Samsung N140, for example, it’s a good value offering.

There isn’t a great deal that’s unique about the Samsung N130. It uses the now standard 10.1-inch screen with a clear 1024 x 600-pixel display. Samsung has used a matt finish to the screen, which helps keep the price down and reduces glare when using it out and about. However, we did find that it had a reduced brightness range compared to other netbooks.

The screen size allows for a typical 93 per cent full-size keyboard that we found a pleasure to use. Sure, it takes a little getting accustomed to but the keys have a good degree of travel and the overall quality is high.

When it comes to spec, you’ll find the standard Intel Atom N270 in place, along with 1024MB of memory and 160GB hard drive. Three USB ports, VGA-out, Ethernet and SD memory card reader make up the connections on the sides.

You won’t find Bluetooth onboard but Wi-Fi is present. Samsung is pitching this device as an entry-level model, so it’s a cheaper netbook than other Samsung’s in the range.

When it comes to battery life, we found the Samsung N130 could muster just over four hours, which is less than we expect from a high-end netbook but for this budget offering, it’s more than acceptable.

REVIEW
The Samsung N310 small laptop has been designed by award winning designer Nato Fukasawa to have a smooth and rounded design like that of a pebble and in many respects he’s done exactly that. You won’t find any edges to the N310, which goes completely against the design laid out in the previous Samsung NC10.

It’s not only the shape that’s different, for as soon as you open the lid you’ll find the netbook has a two-tone effect- our review unit having a blue outer shell with a black liner.

The 10.1-inch screen has a frameless design and looks amazing. It has a native resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels but a neat Samsung app allows you to change it on the fly to 1024 x 768 pixels – perfect for watching movies in 16:9 aspect ratio.samsung-n310-netbook

The keyboard has been given an overhaul as well as uses Samsung’s latest design, as seen on the likes of the Samsung X360 laptop, where the keys are forced through the body of the device. This helps add space and rigidity to the keys. It’s an amazing keyboard for the size, which is almost full-size, and incredibly easy to use.

When it comes to specification, you’ll find the N310 small laptop is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from a netbook. So you’ll find Windows XP ticking away quite nicely on the Intel Atom N270 processor. There is a single SODIMM of memory that Samsung has made easily accessible so can easily be upgraded to 2GB at some later date. The 160GB hard drive is also standard of this type of machine.

Extra features come in the form of 802.11n wireless LAN, while Bluetooth also makes a welcome appearance. There are the now customary three USB ports, as well as VGA-out and Ethernet, the latter of which has a protective cover as if suggesting you won’t use it that much.

REVIEW

The Samsung NC10 can only be described as a superb machine. As far as small laptops go this is one of the if not THE best all round small laptop on the market today. With an affordable price, ease of use and high specification smalllaptopsguide.com highly recommend this product. It sports an all colour (white or black available) design which is very clean and minimal.

The body comes with smooth surfaces and rounded edges which gives it a very nice feel. The Samsung NC10 offers a nice mix of portability, power, style and endurance. The port placement is well thought and nice and the overall positioning of the status indicators and the buttons is nice. samsung-nc10 The build quality is very nice too. It can easily withstand minor jolts without complaints. The shock resistance is however less as it has a normal hard drive and not a solid state drive. The body mainly made of plastic feels sturdy and durable. The Samsung NC10 sports a nice 10.2″ display which supports a native resolution on 1024 x 600 pixels. The display quality is nice and crisp. The brightness and contrast are almost perfect and the image reproduction nice. The display isn’t glossy which means better direct sunlight legibility, and the vertical and horizontal viewing angles are decent too, allowing an audience of about 3-4.

The Samsung NC10 also comes with a 1.3 MP webcam which has nice quality. The built in microphone also works good as expected. The speakers are located at the bottom of the laptop and produce clear, loud sound. The sound quality is decent and is good enough for serious music playback. The keyboard on first look, seems very similar to other small laptops available to buy. It is very spacious and is about 94% the size of a regular laptop keyboard. The key positioning and spacing is almost perfect. The keys offer superb tactile feedback and the key travel is nice. It is the best among all ultraportable keyboards, a blessing for touch typists. The keyboard feels superb, we would give it full marks. The touchpad is located just below the keyboard, and it is a bit too short for comfort. The horizontal length is adequate though. The touchpad is very responsive and has good sensitivity too. The surface is smooth allowing for nice navigation capability. There is a single long touchpad button below the touchpad which can be clicked on the left or right to indicate the left or right click respectively. The buttons offer nice feedback.

The touchpad is a Synaptics one, and hence supports some basic multitouch gestures which is expected to expand more in the near future. The touchpad also sports a vertical scroller on the right of the touchpad which is very useful when scrolling through long documents or web pages. The Samsung NC10 sports exactly the same configuration as any other netbook in that range – a Intel Atom N270 clocked at 1.6 GHz (with 512 KB L2 cache) , a 120 GB HDD at 5400 RPM, 1 GB DDR2 RAM, the graphics department is powered by the reliable old Intel GMA 950 offering 64 MB of VRAM. This specification is capable of handling all basic and casual / office tasks and can also handle multimedia playback. It can also manage light games at playable settings. The performance is more or less the same as other notebooks in its class. Performance shouldn’t be a deciding factor when you choose between different notebooks in the ultraportable category as they perform very similarly, what counts more are the other factors. The Samsung NC10 sports a whole range of expansion ports including 3 USB ports, Ethernet, Headphone and Microphone in, VGA out and a 3 in 1 and SD Card Reader. It also comes with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with EDR. The Wi-Fi reception is nice. The Samsung NC10 distances itself from the rest of the netbook crowd totally when it comes to battery life. It comes with a very powerful 6 cell battery by default which can power the Samsung NC10 for about 7.5 hours on a single charge with moderate usage. Not once did the battery life go below a minimum of 4 hours even with heavy usage. The battery life is simply amazing and is the number one reason why one should opt for the Samsung NC10 instead of the other notebooks. nc10
