Summary: At this price, you'd be better off buying a HP/Compaq Mini 311 with Hardware accelerated NVidia Ion graphics. Amazon are punted them out @ Â£230 with free delivery. Does not quite have the same impressive battery life, but much, much more usable with the 11.6" real estate screen.
Pros: Good Solid Samsung Netbook, Family look now with the excellent R530/730
Summary: Bought this as an alternative to my desktop. Bought on eBay for £150 6 weeks ago and I absolutely love it! The screen is perfect, hd quality and when plugged in, as bright as you'd like! I often use mine for watching shows online in bed, the sound isn't bad either with the SRS function.
Excerpt: Excellent little netbook, purchased mine about six months ago and I would definitely recommend it. Firstly it is hardy; my machine has been knocked on the floor and walked on by my kitten and still functions perfectly.
Excerpt: I had been looking around to buy a computer but did not fancy buying something bulky. I could afford to spend more then around £350. I have always trusted samsung so when i saw this N220 in the shop i really liked it. The cover is a subtle design with a nice looking samsung logo.
Pros: looks great and feels great to work with . display is really good
Summary: for a very portable small laptop this does the job for me. I carry it around wit me alot and use it on my bed and alongside my desktop sometimes and wouldn't be without it. only gripes are the hour or so i spent unistalling the "crapware" samsung had put on, for something that supposed to do web...
Summary: The plusses - smart looking, compact and sturdy little thing - responsive keyboard. The widescreen aspect means there is much vertical scrolling to read web pages, even hiding the taskbar means it pops up often when trying to scroll down with the unresponsive touchpad.
Summary: Pretty happy with the purchase. Screen good, 250G hard drive BUT comes with an awful lot off preloaded stuff that slows the operation right down. The problem is that you're not sure if you need half of the stuff so you're scared to delete it just in case.
Summary: Brilliant little computer. Keyboard not the prettiest but it's operation is as good as any I have used. Processor is up to the job and fast enough for my needs. It has a big hard drive and 1 gig of RAM that can be upgraded to 2 gig. Touchpad has some good features and works very well.
