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...
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.
Summary: I find this piece of kit indispensible to me. It gives me that freedom to roam around the house working whereever I wish without lumping a great big laptop about. My only criticizm is that the keyboard is far to light to touch and I have found that the I bar jumps all over a piece of text if I try to use the built-in keyboard; however, I prefer to use a wireless keyboard/mouse so that particular problem is not a great worry for me.
cute but sometimes problematic with internet and free software
28 June 2010
Summary: I bought this for my wife and it is very cute and useful. Nevertheless, there seem to be some problems with internet. Whenever Skype is on use or McAfee or any other program updates, you cannot run any browser. So, you have to choose, talk with friends or surfing? I hope that this is just a problem of internet security or any other of the many programs that were on.
