Summary: When I received this I was over the moon as it was what I was looking for. Unfortunately the description of what the computer should have didn't and what was on there required product keys. Not a problem as I already had Microsoft office 365. But not for windows 7 ultimate and have had huge problems with it which has now cost me a lot of money to do. Am not impressed.
Summary: I got this netbook just over a year ago and one day the power switch just broke. I couldn't get any support from Samsung. I took it to a computer repair place. The guy said it will cost £95 to fix it. I googled about it and there are so many people having this problems.
Excerpt: "Does Samsung make great phones? yes. Do they make great notebooks? NO. The Samsung N150 is the worst computer I ever used. Having been told that it would do exactly what I wanted it to do I thought why not give it a go. Big mistake. I unpacked it and it looked pretty good. Shiney black case and very lightweight, so far so good. Then I switched it on. The on/off switch is located on the front of the casing and is so small the average size fingers ...
Summary: Not a good netbook to buy! The system is maddeningly slow, windows 7 starter is hopeless, you can't even have a desktop image, the keyboard is totally badly designed and not made for fast typing and the battery doesn't last as long as it's supposed to. It also crashes quite often. All in all, look for something else!
Summary: Bought this for my wife. When it arrived it seemed just too flimsy, and I hated the mousepad, but worst of all half a dozen of the keys didn't work at all. So back it went, and then it's out of stock...
Performs very poorly - not powerful enough spec for Win7

Summary: Having bought my daughter a previous Samsumg (XP) netbook and been delighted with it, I had no hesitation buying another more recent model. Sadly the spec is just not man enough for Windows 7 and is pretty well unusable in my opinion. 2Gb Mem upgrade may help but I will just downgrade the OS to XP (or maybe Ubuntu) and then I am sure it will be fine. Other than that, usual Samsung well built stylish bit of kit.
Summary: Bought this just over 12 months ago and it will suddenly only work on mains. Failure was sudden and battery appears to be charged ok, so problem is probably in the machine itself. Never bought Samsung before, and will not do so again.
Summary: N145 used for 7 hours and then went dead. Charged again and nothing on the screen, would not start up. Returned and decided on the N150 charged it and it was dead as well. Every salesmen says they are the most reliable. Bad luck to get two duds in row.Bought the Acer D255 seems to be great.
