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: Nice portable idea with built-in keyboard and long battery life. Can be horribly slow when doing two things, so when I write I shut off wi-fi and stop the virus protection. Can take several minutes to launch Word for example. Once in though, it performs okay.
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.
Summary: Happy enough with the netbook. Keys can be a little fiddly. I've had it 18 months and - to be fair - have used it quite a bit (particularly for business when on the road). It's not always connected to the mains power supply, and I quite regularly run it off battery. And there lies the problem.
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.
Summary: I treated myself to it over 6 months ago and it hasn't given any trouble. The keyboard is easy to use (even my 6 year old son uses it with no complaints), its fast and compact. I use it for browsing the web, and writing assignments and my blog.
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...
Excerpt: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BOYS AND THEIR TOYS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Seduced by the idea of the ability to read, write and surf on the go, I have been hankering after an ultraportable netbook for ages. The catalyst that turned wishing for one into actually buying one was twofold.
