Reviews for the Samsung N150

Samsung's N150 is a more affordable version of their netbook lineup with a price tag just over $300. This makes it a bit more expensive than many similarly equipped models but Samsung does offer a few perks. Once of these include an anti-glare display that is delightful to use outdoors and a more slim profile than many six-cell battery equipped netbooks. The downside is that is does have a smaller hard drive than the competition.

While its components inside may be the standard configuration for stock Netbooks, Samsung's new N150 version of its minilaptop line at least stands out from the crowd with a unique design. The back of its lid--a deep red that fades to black at the edges--calls to mind a sunburst guitar finish, and is a nice chance of pace from the basic black we're used to seeing in most Netbooks. Samsung's solid N150 Netbook feels very roadworthy, but other Netbooks have a longer battery life.

Standing out from the crowd of netbooks is not so easy, but Samsung's tweaks to its N150 netbook caught our attention. This Best Buy–exclusive version of Samsung's N150 netbook has a new look and more storage space. Its performance is ordinary, but the bundled extras make it a better value than the competition.

The Samsung N150 Plus has it all: good looks, decent performance, long battery life, and a keyboard that doesn’t frustrate our fingers. We especially like how little power this netbook uses in sleep mode when you take advantage of its Fast Boot software. Overall, we prefer the $50 cheaper ASUS Eee 1001P because it has a better touchpad and lasts longer on a charge. But style mavens who want good audio quality and the ability to use their netbook outdoors will be satisfied by this machine.

The Samsung N150 belongs to Samsung’s new series of netbooks that feature the next generation of Intel Atom processors. This particular model is powered by an Intel Atom N450, which is a single core Atom processor with a clock speed of 1.66 GHz. While this netbook offers a hardware upgrade from previous models, it’s the slick design and rock-solid build quality that will take this netbook places.

Samsung's N150 netbook is good for creating basic office documents, browsing the Web and watching standard definition video. We like its keyboard and think it's a comfortable netbook to use overall. However, its battery life could be a little better and we wish the preinstalled software wasn't so intrusive.

The Samsung N150 is a 10in netbook with a thin profile and it weighs only 1.25kg. It runs Windows 7 Starter edition and it’s perfect for Web browsing, word processing and even for watching standard definition videos.

This middle-of-the-road product delivers your money's worth, and not a dime more. Careful! Don't read too hard, or you might break the Samsung N150 netbook I'm writing this review on. From the flex in its Chiclet-style keyboard to screen distortions when you press lightly on the glossy black back of the backlit LCD, the machine feels fragile. Still, its Atom N450 CPU chugs along, delivering 6.25 hours of life on a single battery charge--not great, but reasonable. Call it the Little Engine that just barely can--and might break on the way there--but won't give up for a reasonable time anyway. Which isn't bad for a netbook priced at $350 (as of April 22, 2010).

The NC10, Samsung's first netbook computer, impressed us because it had a longer battery life and better keyboard than others on the market at the time of its release. The N150 is one of many follow-ups, with a new Intel Atom processor that uses less power than the older version, so its battery should last even longer between charges. This netbook has a good battery life but it’s let down by a poor keyboard.

Asus may have kick-started the netbook revolution with its Eee PC, but Samsung has emerged as one of the dominant players in the market thanks to a broad range of devices that offer style, comfort and superb build quality. The N150 netbook, then, has a lot to live up to. The decent screen and keyboard mean that Samsung’s latest netbook gets off to a good start, but the experience soon sours thanks to average build quality and a disappointing specification.

At £280 the Samsung N150 is a standard netbook that is perfect if your needs aren't anything other than emailing, web surfing and basic word processing. More powerful devices are out there, but you do have to pay a premium for those. The main problem the Samsung N150 suffers from is that it is unadventurous in its design, so there is virtually nothing to shout about over and above the competition other than that long battery life, and then in that it is not unique.

Samsung, buoyed by the success of its first wave of netbooks, has wasted no time in releasing a second-generation device. The N150, rather excitingly, ditches the stalwart Intel Atom N270 CPU for a newer, faster, more efficient processor known as the Atom N450. The N150 will be available soon for around £280. The Samsung N150 is among the first netbooks to use the new Intel Atom N450 chip. As a result, it offers excellent battery life, but it's far from perfect. Unfortunately, its cramped keyboard and comparatively small hard drive let the side down.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» 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).


N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 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.
