A Letdown + Disappointing Samsung Customer Service = No Thanks
Orton Redux, Amazon

Summary: Over the holidays, our family bought two netbooks, one for the adults and the other for the kids. Unable to decide between the top-rated Toshiba NB205 and the equally applauded Samsung N310, we stayed true to our centrist leanings: we bought both, $300 each on sale.
Summary: This netbook is equipped with the typical configuration for this category of computers, but the battery performance is OUTSTANDING. The keyboard is excellent (it's like typing on my regular desktop computer). The rubbery external finishing gives that extra grip.
Summary: I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my college student daughter. Before wrapping it up I spent a bunch of time "initializing" it. It takes a bit of time once you turn it on to go through the setup of all the programs.
Summary: As most netbooks are similar these days, this one definately stands out. The design is unique and modern. The product is great, comfortable keyboard, great graphics, great speakers, and great batterty life. The other big plus for us was that we could buy and install extra memory to keep it fast.
Summary: Love this little computer! The battery life is incredible and really the only thing is it is hard to see the screen in the daylight but that is pretty common with most computers and electronic devices.
Summary: I received this for Christmas from my husband and it's terrific. Seems to me that it does everything a large computer can do and it's so light and easy to carry around. I have a Dell desktop and laptop, but the laptop is now retired!
Summary: This is a great little machine for travel and checking email--surfing the web. It may be a little slower than a regular laptop, but the size and lightweight features make it worth any lag time.
Summary: Okay... I had my heart set on a Toshiba NB205 netbook. I did my research and I was confident in my choice based on the features and the solid reviews. However, Santa brought me a Samsung Go. Well, kudos to Santa!
