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.
Conclusion: The Samsung N150 cleans up in the netbook segment in one point after the other. It does not ascend the throne, however. Worthy of mention are the stable case including the very good display hinges , the good input devices and the low noise emissions . In Silent-Mode, the fan hardly makes a peep. When it does, it is extremely quiet. The same goes for the almost inaudible 250 GB hard drive.
Pros: Long battery life, Very quiet and cool, Matt TFT, Stabile case, Good keyboard, Integrated UMTS, Long runtimes and whisper quiet in Silent-Mode. Samsung uses the advantages of Pine Trail to the full.
Cons: TFT too dark for outdoor use, Significant heating in silent mode, Limited performance, small palm rest, The TFT is too dim and prevents the resurrection of a netbook god.
