Keep in touch with a Samsung N130!
Member Name: steffcuk
Advantages: Small, compact and easy to use.
Disadvantages: Small keyboard and only suitable for surfing, emailing etc.
As an overview the Samsung N130 is 10.7" x 7.4" x 1.2" and weighs 2.6 pounds.
It is a netbook computer and has a retail cost of around £200.00. It has a small and compact shape with round eges and the battery and the far back of the netbook raises it around a quarter of an inch.
With an Atom N270 processer, the netbook is ideal for surfing the web and emailing but it tends to be a bit on the sluggish side when having to cope with a lot of applications. Due to its size, the keyboard on the netbook is quite small but even myself, as a secretary, adapted very quickly and it is very easy to touch type on.
It also has 1GB of RAM,
a 160GB hard drive,
3x USB 2.0 ports,
3-in-1 card reader,
and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
The 10.1-inch LCD is LED backlit which is non-glossy, and has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.
I have had my netbook for around 18 months now in a lovely pink colour. It has served me well during this time and it totally perfect for slipping into an overnight bag. I have found the battery life of the netbook to be around 4 hours which is totally adequate for everyday requirements. The battery does seem to get very hot if it is used on the mains for any substantial length of time. I tend to charge mine up for a while and then disconnect the charger units and run it off the battery again which seems to have sorted this problem out.
I have used my netbook extensively, but I did find that the letters tended to wear off after around 8 months of use. This is not a problem for me as I am a touch typist, but for those who are not it could cause a problem!
I would recommend this netbook to anyone who needs a computer for everday activities such as shopping, emailing, surfing and for social networking sites. It is light and compact and very good value for money.
I would not recommend this netbook for anyone wishing to use it for any type of audio activity. The internal speaker system is very very quiet indeed and even when on a maximum setting you can barely hear it.
Do shop around though and look at the comparison sites as you can get a far better deal this way. Try and check on a daily basis of new deals as the prices tend to change very quickly. I also managed to get a further discount by using a discount code at checkout, so this is also well worth looking at.
