Summary: At the heart of practically every netbook beats a slow but steady Intel Atom, chosen for its worthy low power requirements. Now Samsung has, with nVidiaâ€™s help, opened up the multimedia possibilities in the Samsung N510, making the first Ion netbook. An inbetweener, yes, but one with graphics credibility. The presence of a larger, high resolution and matt finish LCD display further ticks boxes on the checklist for assembling a truly serviceable compact laptop.
Conclusion: The Samsung N510 is a netbook which distinguishes itself from the mass already due to its good basic characteristics . The good workmanship's and case quality, the low emissions, the relatively low weight, the anti-reflective display and the good battery life count to that. Above that, the Samsung N510 has configuration details that aren't in any way a matter of course and therefore offer a plus on value .
Pros: Robust case, Very good workmanship, Low emissions, Bright, non-glare display with WXGA resolution, Fairly fast graphic, HDMI, Good keyboard, Good mobility, Smooth FullHD rendering possible (dependent on format, software and files), Good converting performance with use of the CUDA engine, Limited gaming capability, The extended utilization range, due to Nvidia's ION and the form factor, without restricting the mobility. Samsung has also maintained the high-quality stan...
Cons: Port distribution, Contrast poor display with pallid colors, Only 1 RAM slot, Poor VGA quality, A contrast-strong and more viewing angle independent display, a second RAM slot... and maybe a second processor core?!
Summary: This isn’t the first netbook we've seen that’s supercharged its graphics performance by pairing an NVIDIA graphics processor with an Intel Atom CPU . That particular accolade goes to the Asus N10J , an otherwise ordinary netbook dressed up in a businessman’s clothing. The Samsung N510 is, however, the first one to use the official NVIDIA ION chipset . Judging by the spec sheet, there shouldn’t be any difference between this and the performance of the N10J.
Conclusion: Das Samsung N510-anyNet ist ein ganz ordentliches Netbook, das die meisten Ansprüche befriedigen sollte. Lediglich die Möglichkeit moderne Spiele zu spielen fehlt gänzlich aufgrund der schwachen Rechenleistung.
