Advantages: Lightweight, cheap, attractive
Disadvantages: No good for serious gaming, poor speakers
For a relatively cheap, small netbook the Samsung N150 Plus far did not much surpass my expectations.
It is quite sleek and not too heavy and so is ideal for taking on the train or other transport for work. The keys aren't too small either and the screen is a sufficient size for everything except spreadsheets which can be a little bit of a pain. The built-in camera is better than I expected but the accompanying software is very annoying so I would advise uninstalling it and finding an alternative piece of software. On top of this the background can not be changed due to the operating system - Windows 7 Starter - which means you're left with the boring blue background.
The laptop as a whole could do with a little extra RAM but the 1GB is enough if you are not intending to use it for non-browser based gaming. The chargeable USB port is a great aspect too as you can charge your phone or similar electronics without having the laptop on and you can turn this option off too avoid too much energy expenditure. The netbook has a quite basic set of speakers which are quite quiet and not great to listen to music through.
I would suggest possibly getting a small laptop instead of this which would not be too much heavier either.
Summary: Decent netbook, buy a laptop
