Summary: I ordered this for a trip to Europe - I didn't think that I could really do what I needed to do on an iPad. This little netbook is a real winner, it is light, but sufficiently powerful. I loaded it up with Office 2010 and Quickbooks Pro 2011. Although it is not as fast as I would like, it does the job well. I have also used it with remote desktop access. The keyboard is full sized enough for my big fingers.
Summary: I just purchased the Samsung n140 net book and I have to say that I am quite pleased with the over all packaged of this product. I have owned many net books in the past seeing as I am a repair technician and need constant internet access when I am in in the field. So coming from a piratical and industrial use stand point I have to say that the n140 stacks up pretty well. The design is very ergonomic, its sturdy and has a nice tactile feel to it.
Summary: Had just missed the big box $280 black friday deal by a few hours. Really wanted one so orderd this for more from Amazon on cyber monday evening. Arrived 3 days later via UPS free ground shipping. After playing with this a few days now, wife and I really appreciate the larger keys and non-glare screen. (great at breakfast table near a window) Got the touch pad dialed in to suit (still get the occasional unexpected movement). Anyway a couple of problems here.
Summary: Pros: The netbook is light-weight and for other netbooks, the price is alright. It is perfect for students who would like a very good performing netbook. I haven't had it for long to really have good idea about its memory size, but i think it is enough. Cons: Surprisingly the audio is bad. I usually don't really care for audio and can't tell small differences, but even I can hear the quality of this netbook.
Samsung N140: Very good - just don't expect too much
3 November 2012
Summary: Ultimately these netbooks are made for emails, word processing and surfing the web. The N140 can carry out these functions perfectly and you can comfortably watch videos on it too. Obviously, however, when you consider the graphics card and processor, powerful games and excessive multi-tasking are not possible. Having said that, I have been impressed with the speed of this device. It really does pack quite a punch considering its size.
Pros: Portability, screen quality, hard drive size
Cons: Quite poor battery life when you want faster performance
Summary: This was bought as a present for my daughter, who has really enjoyed using this product from day one. If you need a netbook for general computing and surfing the web then this is the one for you.Handles all task thrown at it well. For example you can watch Youtube clips, open up a document or two and transfer files to a storage device with no interruption or slowing down of the system.
Summary: This was mostly an impulse buy as I already had a laptop. The problem was that the laptop wasn't very good in the first place: an HP model with an advertised battery life of just one hour. Shame on me! Rather than invest in another laptop, however, my focus turned to something I could use for hours at a time, without having to worry about battery life. After doing some due diligence on the Internet, the Samsung netbooks came highly recommended most of all.
Summary: I am writing this on my new Samsung N140 from Amazon. My first experience with Samsungs was at christmas when I got my wife a Samsung N110, the slightly enhanced big brother of the famous N10 which is still (at the time of writing) the only netbook to recieve a 10/10 from trusted reviews. The N140 is just as good and adds the bonus of the sleep and charge USB and the slightly larger keyboard and trackpad with awesome battery life!
Summary: I bought this laptop after reading a review for it on the gadget show and while I think it's a good laptop the wireless connection is iffy (keeps losing connectivity) and it DOES NOT come with 1 year trial of microsoft. I informed Amazon of this today but I see it is still advertised as having it.
Summary: Wanted a small computer to take travelling that really does have a long life battery. This little Samsung really hit the spot with it's 11 hours battery life. The only thing which was initially dissappointing was that on the first charge the battery indicator only registered 9.5hours - but after a few full charges it is now creeping up. Hopefully I will get the promised 11 hours in time. But even 9.5hours is pretty good compared to the 1hour I get on my laptop.
