A nice little netbook you kick around

Kathy Foss "midgetwarrior", Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: GOOD: 9 hour battery life, Small, Lightweight, Scratch Proof, Mostly Drop Proof, Spill Proof, dog proof, an excellent box to put Linux on, BAD: Screen resolution is terrible, pre installed software is terrible, pre installed ram is a joke 1 GB, What I did: Bought new ram for it up it to 2GB (the max it can support), and put Ubuntu and Fedora on it NOTE: if your a windows user, 7 will work and is installed on this thing, but its very slow...

Snail

  • Summary: I had an Acer Aspire with XP that I used on vacations and decided to get a new mini with Windows 7. I bought this Samsung because you can add extra memory (which I did). From the beginning, I had problems, so I had my computer "geek" work on it. Even after removing all the unnessary junk, adding and then removing the extra memory, it's no better. There are web sites that simply won't load.

Works great. No complaints.

Jack R. Hatcher "Voodoo", Amazon
4 December 2011
  • Summary: I have had my netbook for about a month now and it is an integral part of my business and social life. The easy of transport and battery life are a pleasant change from my laptop. Anyone that has complaints about this particular unit probably did not carefully consider the specifications and limitations of this device. The 5-star rating stems from the netbook's ability to do exactly what I want it to do, but I am sure there are better products on the market.

SO. MUCH. SHOVELWARE.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: The other reviews are right, it is a fine little computer for a good price. however... I've worked on quite a few laptops and netbooks in my day, and this one takes the cake for having the most garbage pre-installed. I understand, Samsung, that this is how you keep the prices down. You get money from Norton and all the other devs so that you can sell the hardware for crazy-low prices. I get it...but you're going too far.

very happy with this netbook

nanmyers, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I was a little skeptical of the Starter OS, but this laptop has done everything I had hoped it would. I have not upgraded the RAM, so I am using with the original 1 Gb. I wanted a netbook for portability that I could do some programming on and also use it for netflix. I am able to use the VGA out to connect to my TV. Just then have to switch the display using function key as the Starter OS will not display on the laptop and the external display at the same time.

Great battery life

Paul, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: When comparing netbooks in the $300 price range, the main difference is the battery life. This one has a great battery life of up to 8 hours. Using it on an airplane with wireless disabled, screen dimmed to 25% while reading an ebook and listening to music (headphones) you can expect about 7hrs battery time. Watching videos etc will take it down to about 6hrs. On the downside, it is not the most slim netbook on the market. Lightweight - yes, slim - not really.

Awesome value for a solid little netbook!

bugsglo, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I got my Samsung nb30-jp02 about a month ago as an alternative to lugging my macBook around and have put it through the paces in that time with awesome results. As a full-time student I ask a lot from my lappys and this little guy has not disappointed. Structurally it is extremely light but solid with a good balanced feel and exhibits all the qualities that I have come to expect from all the Samsung products I currently own, as well as those I've owned in the past.
