Excerpt: The Samsung N150 belongs to Samsung’s new series of netbooks that feature the next generation of Intel Atom processors. This particular model is powered by an Intel Atom N450, which is a single core Atom processor with a clock speed of 1.66 GHz. While this netbook offers a hardware upgrade from previous models, it’s the slick design and rock-solid build quality that will take this netbook places.
Excerpt: This Best Buy–exclusive version of Samsung's N150 netbook has a new look and more storage space. Its performance is ordinary, but the bundled extras make it a better value than the competition.
Pros: Attractive design, Software for quick power-ups and battery preservation, Bundled Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition
Cons: Compressed keyboard is challenging to use (especially ridge below space bar), Slightly below-average performance
Summary: The Samsung N150 Plus has it all: good looks, decent performance, long battery life, and a keyboard that doesn’t frustrate our fingers. We especially like how little power this netbook uses in sleep mode when you take advantage of its Fast Boot software. Overall, we prefer the $50 cheaper ASUS Eee 1001P because it has a better touchpad and lasts longer on a charge.
Summary: Samsung's N150 netbook is good for creating basic office documents, browsing the web and watching standard definition video. We like its keyboard and think it's a comfortable netbook to use overall. However, its battery life could be a little better and we wish the preinstalled software wasn't so intrusive.

Summary: Samsung's N150 netbook is good for creating basic office documents, browsing the Web and watching standard definition video. We like its keyboard and think it's a comfortable netbook to use overall. However, its battery life could be a little better and we wish the preinstalled software wasn't so intrusive.
Pros: Good keyboard, matte screen, light weight, chargeable USB port
Cons: Battery life could be improved, too much pre-installed software resulted in lots of nagging reminders, netbook screen design is a little tacky and needs to be finessed
Excerpt: I must admit, the more gear from Samsung I review lately, the more respect that I have for the company. Many years ago, I regarded them as just another Apple wannabe- but how wrong can a guy be? In this case, after spending the past week or so playing with their N150 netbook -although I am not a big fan of the mini laptop category - I’ve got to say the unit is truly is a little marvel.
Pros: light, long battery life, no overheating issues
Cons: small, keyboard, small HD and lack of colour options
