Conclusion: The Samsung N120 could boast with welcome detail innovations in a few areas, but allows itself to take a grave step backwards just exactly at the most important interface to the user - the display. Especially pleasing are the good sound emissions, the higher battery life with, at the same time, a lower weight, the improved (because bigger) keyboard and the pleasant low noise level.
Pros: Good manufacturing quality, Long battery life, Quiet, Adequate sound, Good input devices, Resistant and easy to care surface, The chic design, the long runtime and the good workmanship.
Cons: Reflective display with low contrast values and uneven illumination, Display lid has little twisting resistance, Unfavorable placement of USB and audio ports, Base's temperature development, A good display with a matt surface and better contrasts.
Summary: The Samsung N120 is a nice alternative to the N110 if you're willing to give up some battery power for a slightly roomier keyboard and small bumps in performance. The good news is that they both cost around Â£350, so you won't pay a price for your choice. Whether you'll notice the snappier performance or miss the extra battery life more is up to you.
Excerpt: Samsung may not be as big in the computer market as they are in the television one (at least in the USA), but in the recent months they have made significant progress. One of their most successful offerings was the NC10 netbook , which immediately emerged as one of the best products available (and remains a fine product despite the progress in the netbook market since its release).
Summary: The Samsung N120 is one of the best netbooks we’ve tested this year, thanks to its roomy keyboard, long battery life, and loud speakers. With an MSRP of $439 (and a street price of $410), the N120 has a higher price than the MSI Wind U123, which gets more than 40 minutes of additional battery life for $60 less. The Samsung also costs about $20 more than the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE, which offers a stylish design and nearly as much endurance.
Pros: 1024 x 600 resolution higher than most netbooks, Long battery life, Large keyboard, ,
Summary: The Samsung N120 isn’t the smallest or lightest netbook on the market. And it doesn’t have the loudest speakers. But it is thin, light, and has some of the best
speakers I’ve heard on a netbook to date. And they totally justify the bezel around the 10.1 inch display. In fact, the bezel isn’t really that much larger than th ones found on many other 10 inch netbooks, and it’s much less noticeable than the huge bezel around the original netbook, the 7 inch Asus Eee...

Summary: Samsung's return to the notebook market after two years is a successful one, at least in the netbook category. The Samsung N120 is well built, has an outstanding keyboard and great battery life. It's a little expensive when you consider that some similar machines can be bought for a few hundred dollars less, but we have no problems recommending it if you are after a compact, comfortable and sturdy netbook.
Pros: Design, excellent keyboard and track pad, good sound quality, battery life
Cons: A little expensive, underside can get very warm during prolonged use, glossy display
