Summary: N140 has great build quality, Windows XP means I know what I'm doing, good performance and battery life well up to the advertised 10 hrs. Super bright screen, and very good wireless pereformance to router. Bought the 2Gb upgrade, which seems worth it. Improves performance, copes with a pretty large spread sheet I imported very well.
Summary: I love this netbook. It looks brill in the while and the free protective cover is very usefull. It was easy to set up (I am not a computer whiz). Its small enough to take on holiday and large enough to use comfortably at home. Keep it on my coffee table to use as and when, usually about 4 times a day. Take it away on business to use in my hotel room using free hot spots. Took it to the USA and logged in every day (free)to send emails home.
If battery life and portability are your main concern you are onto a winner with this

Excerpt: Samsung N140 10.1 inch Netbook (Atom N270 1.6GHz Processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, BT, XP Home, 9 Hour Battery, Black) I needed a netbook that would perform two main roles. One to contain all my documents and emails for work and two to be portable enough to carry in my case. I did buy and install a 2GB Ram which is really easy to install yourself (just be aware of any impact on your warranty).
Summary: I bought myself this netbook as it fits perfectly on the small tables in my lecture theatres, and helps me to organise my notes in a much more effective manner than pen and paper which would just get sprawled across the floor. With the year's free MS Office it is an even better product and totally fit for purpose. The 250gb HDD is a brilliant feature too. Since purchasing the netbook my main Acer Laptop died and I have had just the netbook to use as my main computer.
Summary: I bought this for working and dossing while on trains, planes and buses but now it has become the computer I work on most - even at the office, etc. Of course it's still only a netbook so has to be treated with patience (maybe a memory upgrade would help in this regard) and the sound from the speakers isn't great if you want to listen to music or watch a film without earphones - but really, how often do you do that with a netbook anyways?
Summary: Bought this netbook for use when travelling, rather than as a replacement for my main machine. It seems to be lightweight but robust. The keyboard is excellent and I was able to touch type at speed on it from the outset (unlike my previous 7" netbook where it was never really possible to touch type properly due to the smallness of the keys).
Summary: A really nice laptop with clear screen, very good battery life and a surprisingly easy to use touchpad. It would have been helpful if the instructions had mentioned that initial set up would take well over an hour - if I had been in a hurry it would have been a problem. But a good purchase which I can happily recommend.
Summary: I've had my N140 for a few months now. Absolutely perfect given the current Atom chip spec. Here's how I set mine up. Firstly, bought my N140 with Windows 7 starter. Upgraded on line immediately to Windows 7 Home Premium. Then increased RAM to 2gb. Got rid of McAffee and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials for free. Smooth, safe and highly recommended.
