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. Windows 7 starter has a LOT of limitations so I recommend upgrading to Ultimate as soon as you get this netbook as I did.
Excerpt: This is a really excellent little netbook, with a stylish design. I use this gadget predominately for internet browsing both in and out of the home. The main use I get is when studying in the library I can use the wifi there to connect to the internet much the same as other hotspots around town. Due to the small and lightweight size I can easily carry it around with me with little fuss and it comes with a nice little protective case which does just fine.
Summary: I just cannot fault this Netbook, I have upgraded all the bits that can be upgraded. I just love it. I sit in the garden with it for hours, the battery lasts for ages, a lot longer than my other laptop. It looks nice and sturdy, but is very light wieght, I have not found any downsides yet to the Samsung N220, and I hope I don't in the future. I would highly recommend this product.
Summary: So far have used it at home and travelling, for less than a month. Pleasantly surprised by the high screen quality and visibility even in high ambient light. I need to use Windows applications and annoyed by the startup prompts to use Hyperspace (Linux) for speed. Tried to use Skype on hotel wi-fi and it refused to work saying the computer was too slow - whether this was true, or just the wi-fi itself was slow, I don't know.
Amazing battery life, sturdy, and fast. What else could you want?

Summary: I purchased this notebook as I needed a small and light-weight device with a long battery life, using Intel's latest Atom CPU. Additionally, it should be reasonably fast as I planned to do Java development on it, and have a non-glossy screen. After purchasing the Samsung N220, I immediately upgraded it to 2GB. The battery life is excellent. I was able to use the device almost continuously on a 10 hour flight.
Summary: This is a well-made netbook. It will glide you through your normal day to day tasks: internet browsing, word processing, email, spreadsheets and so on. It plays back standard definition movies relatively well too. Though technically it can play games, you probably don't want to buy this machine for that. It is well made, and has survived a drop on the concrete, and general handling by two kids on two different road-trips.
Summary: nice little netbook , does what you expect . battery life seems close to whats stated if in power saver etc i removed all the bloatware as others have mentioned one thing i will mention , a zip up case is INCLUDED with the deal , amazon kinda twists your arm with the "other people have bought this" and highlight the belkin 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. Wifi works out of the box and the built-in webcam is excellent. OS upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium but the standard Starter edition is fine for most jobs.
Summary: The description says, "Samsung N220 (NP-N220-JMD2UK) Green/Black 10.1-inch Netbook (Intel Atom N450 1.66 GHz Processor, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, 6 Cell Battery (up to 11.2 hours battery life), Webcam, Windows 7 Starter) PLUS a Samsung SCX-4500W Wireless 3-in-1 Mono Laser Printer, Copier and Scanner". Does it really come with a Samsung Wireless laser printer? I've just ordered 2, can't wait to see.
Superb Netbook with the best keyboard on the market.

Summary: Some bullet points for you.... - Great keyboard (key spacing). Can't stress that enough, as I have a general hate for laptop keyboards. - Multi-touch keypad (although I turned off the function that enables a 'tap' to replicate a button click. I was always accidentally clicking on links etc when my finger briefly left the keypad. More of a personal preference). - Matt screen avoids sun glare.
