  • Excerpt: I bought this little netbook at Christmas day for my wife.  The only reason I bought it is because of the price (roughly about 240 including shipping and rebate).  I was contemplating waiting for the new atom processor but it is such a low price that I cannot pass it on.  Besides, technology changes everyday; it is like a dog chasing a truck.  You will never get the latest unless you are will to pay a premium.

  • Excerpt: This samsung netbook is perfect for someone just wanting to get online and surf around or send some emails. I bought this for my daughter for her high school work last year. It is holding up good, haven't had an major issues with it. It works good for typing notes in class and emailing them. There is not alot of internal memory and no cd drive. We use USB memory sticks to tranfer the info back to my home computer to print for her.

  • Excerpt: As netbooks go, the N-130 is a solid performer. Nothing really notable to make it stand out from the pack but it's a good, basic netbook. I've had mine for about 2.5 years as I write this and it's still in pretty good running condition. It came with WinXP Home on it but I wiped that clean as soon...

  • Excerpt: My Samsung N130 netbook came installed with Win7, which at the time was one of the selling points it had I liked. However, the specs of the device proved too limiting for Win7 (even the pared down version used) and it ran rather slowly. So, I installed Ubuntu on it, which runs great. No...

  • Excerpt: I've wanted one of the netbooks ever since I first saw them. Though, I would have preferred the trend to go with the term "net-top." Make fun if you want, I don't care if it has too many tees, I know it would have caught on, okay?! Anyway, my mom got me this blue beauty from...

Samsung N130: Surprisingly reliable!

  • Summary: ... nearly 3 years now and this little machine continues to do what it is made to do. wifi adapter does a pretty good job. 3 USB slots really useful. the SD card slot has a protective cover for when it is not used. the sound from the speakers are not powerful, but sufficient if you are in a quiet environment. the screen colour is OK. i like the keyboards. responsive and very functional. you may call it user-friendly. the key pitch is just perfect.
  • Pros: reliable and reasonably fast
  • Cons: a bit heavy and bulky

Samsung N130: Good little machine

  • Summary: This is a great little machine ! I have owned it for more than a year now and can honestly say for the £200 it was a good purchase. The best feature of this netbook is its battery life i can squeeze 7hrs out of it if i drop all settings to eco mode. The specs of this netbook are nothing dazzling but can keep up with most demanding apps even under multitasking.
  • Pros: small , battery life, web cam , cheap
  • Cons: build quality , spec , outdated os

The Netbook I have has 1GB of Ram and a 160GB Hardrive and runs Windows XP, you can also now buy a version of this Netbook that has 2GB of Ram and a 250GB Hardrive running Window's 7 starter; you will want to upgrade Windows 7 starter has alot of limitations such as not supporting these features : * Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the Windows Basic or other opaque...

Keep in touch with a Samsung N130!

  • Summary: OVERVIEW As an overview the Samsung N130 is 10.7" x 7.4" x 1.2" and weighs 2.6 pounds. It is a netbook computer and has a retail cost of around £200.00. It has a small and compact shape with round eges and the battery and the far back of the netbook raises it around a quarter of an inch. With an Atom N270 processer, the netbook is ideal for surfing the web and emailing but it tends to be a bit on the sluggish side when having to cope with a lot of applications.
  • Pros: Small, compact and easy to use.
  • Cons: Small keyboard and only suitable for surfing, emailing etc.

Samsung N130: Fabulous for facebook

  • Summary: I bought this netbook in my last week at uni when my desktop computer broke - possibly the worst time that could possibly happen. I chose this particular model because it was on sale in Argos for less than £200 while many others I was looking at were much higher prices then you had to pay extra for the operating system, but this has everything included.
  • Pros: Cheap, small and portable
  • Cons: poor sound
