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.
Wi-Fi connectivity problem warning. Don't be fobbed off!

Summary: 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.
Pros: Great price, nice screen, easy set up
Cons: faulty wi-fi connectivity, sound not great,poor customer service
Summary: 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!
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).
