  • Summary: acted really weirdly for me - resizing text, zooming in and out, changing text colour, etc. but was fine after my son but xubuntu on it - worked well and fast then
  • Pros: lightweight, good battery life
  • Cons: reacts really strangely, win xp

Not bad but poor wireless card and slow

  • Summary: Bought for my 9 year old to do what 9 year olds do. All great but bit slow and suffers from wireless drop out frequently without any solution it would seem. No problem with all other laptops in the house or router issues. Just won't stay connected for long periods without issues. Constantly being asked to "fix it" by my son who seems to have been put off using it somewhat due to the inconstancy. Shame when it has the look and feel of a good machine.

Lovely little netbook but keep an eye on the wifi connectivity.

  • Excerpt: I bought my son one of these for christmas on the strength of the reviews and also because he was insisting on windows xp instead of windows 7 which narrowed the field a bit. We bought it at the end of October because PC world were doing a trade-in discount for old laptaps at the time, but as mentioned it was a Christmas present so wasn't used until Christmas day.

Good for using the odd time, not for excessive use.

  • Excerpt: I did not personally own one of these, but my brother did which i sneakily used quite a lot, and i have also used it at my college who have a load of them. However i have now decided to pay my brother half, to share it with him as it is very handy! The Samsung Notebook is very easy to take around with you because of its size, so easily fits into most bags that you may like to carry it around in, excluding handbags and small food bags!

Be aware that the software only lasts a month or so

  • Summary: Love that this little computer is lightweight but feels well made, but I wanted to warn you all that the Office software on it is just for trial - it doesn't last a year, as other reviewers have said - just a few weeks, then it jams up and won't work. So be prepared to be spending more money to put software onto it, if you want the netbook for word, powerpoint and excel. And check out software prices - I've seen some that cost more than the netbook did.

Small but slow and verrrrrry quiet

David Robson "RV Gypsy", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this mainly because, though now retired, I spend my time between the UK, Spain and Los Angeles, (where my family live). I use a Toshiba 15" Satellite laptop with an AMD Turion 64x2 CPU and 3gb RAM, using Vista Home premium normally, so the Samsung N130 seems really slooooow, even though I swapped the 1GB ram for one of the 2Gb's I had in the Toshiba, (I figured on 32bit Vista, it wouldn't miss a gig and the N130 would benefit).

Great but only 3 hours bat life

  • Summary: I bought my N130 to use whilst travelling - Only used at home so far but very pleased. It is a delightful small machine - I've just obtained a slimline USB CD to load applications - you can do this by networking to a PC with a drive but I found this too challenging and possibly difficult mixing a Windows XP netbook with a Vista PC. Just one thing detracts from the all-round delight, the N130 was billed as battery time up to 6 hours.
