Excerpt: ... 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Great Netbook for a reasonable price however there are now better Netbooks.

Excerpt: I have had this Netbook for one and a half years, I could sum it up in three words - The Headline. 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...
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: A good alround netbook. It does everything I expected it too, doesn't crash. It even survives attempts at destrution by my toddler. The keyboard is a nice size, and graphics are good. But the inbuilt speakers are really really quiet.
Pros: Reliable, does everything I want it to, and has lasted longer than my previous laptop.
Cons: The speakers are pathetic. You have to really be in a quiet room to use it for skype.
Probably the best quality, most affordable netbook on the market

Excerpt: THE BASICS Now retailing at under £200, the N130 shows why tablet PCs (and indeed the IPod) still have some way to go before netbooks are dead in the water. STYLE Moulded plastic casing available in a range of colours (black, light and dark blue, red) and a matt finish. Solid, rather than elegant the N130 nevertheless exudes a sense of style - you won't be ashamed of it, while it also offers the level of robustness necessary for you to chuck it in your (hand/man)bag on a...
Excerpt: Using my work laptop for writing Dooyoo reviews,Facebook and sorting personal e mails was a luxury I knew could not last. When I resigned from my post, I also resigned myself to handing back my well-used laptop. What could replace that gaping ICT hole in my life? The Samsung N130 came recommended by Martin Lewis of Moneysavingexpert.com. It was bought for £220 in November '09 from the Samsung website.
