Our Samsung N130 Review
The Samsung N130 is... okay, weíll say it: An adorable little netbook. At a scant 10.1 inches, and just 1.25 kg, itís like an adorable, cuddly little baby computer, and at the risk of sounding like old ladies fawning over newborn puppies, weíll say that it really is so cute youíll want to gobble it right up!
Something really cool about it, though: Itís powerful, too. Itís not just a cute little notebook, itís something like Bam Bam Rubble, hiding a true reserve of strength under its cuddly surface. A gig of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, three USB 2.0 ports, a three in one card reader, webcam, and an 802.11b/g/n WiFi modem. It puts some full sized laptops to shame, truth be told.
The screen is LED backlit, non-gloss, with a 1024 by 600 resolution. There are TV sets that canít offer that.
All of this runs at a whopping seven point five hours, minimum, on the battery pack.
Depending on who you buy it from, prices may vary, but itís usually well under four hundred, so itís really priced to move. The rig is available in either black or white, so itís stylish, to boot.
Bottom line: Itís an incredibly capable, incredibly portable, incredibly cheap rig. Not much more to say about it than that.
Samsung N130 from back
So if youíre looking for an awesome little netbook, you canít go wrong with either of these. The question is more of which one youíre after. You could save a little money with the N130, and itíll probably perform just as well, but you get a little more compatibility with the N140ís Bluetooth. Either way, this is one of the cheapest and best netbooks available, and if all you need is a cool, simple little netbook, then the N series might be perfect for you.
Both versions come with Windows 7, both have real keypads, with the clicking and everything, both have crystal clear picture, decent sound, great battery life, a nice, sturdy build, and both cost less than you could make in a week on minimum wage. What more is there to say?
