Reviews for the Samsung N140

The new N130 and N140 netbooks will probably be the last such machines we see from Samsung running the Silverthorne Atom processors as come January it is promising to announce a raft of new machines using the next generation Atom Pine Trail chips. Excellent replacement for with NC10, but Windows 7 takes its toll on performance.

Samsung’s sharp-looking netbook offers snappy Windows 7 performance, good ergonomics, and over 6 hours of battery life. The Samsung N140 is a worthy successor to the NC10 and N110, and it’s one of our favorite 10-inch Windows 7 netbooks. It offers good performance and a stylish design, plus better sound quality than the Toshiba mini NB205-N330BL. Overall, we prefer the NB205 because it lasts nearly 9 hours on a charge and includes a larger touchpad and discrete mouse buttons. But the N140’s 6.5 hours of endurance, coupled with its comfortable keyboard, make it a very strong contender.

Samsung arrived a little late at the netbook party, but the NC10 it launched at the end of last year did at least have the good grace to combine smart design with long battery life. There was little else remarkable about it though, so we were eager to see what Samsung had up its sleeve with its latest model — the N140. It’s little more than an update to a year-old netbook, but we won’t knock the Samsung N140 for that — it’s well-made, performs well and lasts for a very long time on battery power. Highly recommended.

Samsung N140 review
Source: CNet English
Samsung continues to refine, rather than redesign, its netbooks. The two latest additions to its N series, the N130 and N140, owe much to existing models in the range, and are essentially the same as each other, especially in terms of appearance. The N140 adds Bluetooth, stereo speakers and a bigger battery, and is more expensive as a result. It's available for around £310. Although the Samsung N140 blazes no new netbook trails, we can't knock it. It looks good and it's well-made, but its battery life is its outstanding feature. If you need a low-cost netbook that can last all day away from the mains, look no further.

A first glance around the bodywork and through the specs tells us there’s nothing new to see here. But closer examination shows a fractional upgrade in wireless connectivity, along with a step back in usability with the new recessed trackpad buttons. The Samsung N140 is a very good netbook that continues Samsung’s run of higher quality netbooks, but unless 802.11n wireless is essential to you, we’d advise you to also look out for a cheaper and more comfortable NC10 or N110 model.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
