Reviews for the Samsung N350-JA03UK

65% Samsung N350 dual-core netbook
Source: Reg Hardware English
Small, well-designed and comfortable to use, the N350 could have been a great little netbook. However, the relatively poor battery life and minimal performance boost offered by the dual-core Atom make its high price somewhat unpalatable.

Small and relatively cheap, netbook computers are great for tasks such as web browsing and word processing. The Samsung N350 is impressively compact, but its battery life is lacklustre and the benefits offered by the dual-core processor are minimal. It's also more expensive than most 10in netbooks, with cheaper models such as Acer's D260 offering far longer battery life.

Samsung - N350 review
Source: IT Reviews English
There no denying the N350 is a well-crafted netbook. It's small, light and great to type on. However, the high price and disappointing battery life hamper its overall appeal. The dual-core Atom chip is one of the main reasons for the high price, but the fact is you really don't get much of a performance boost from it. Ultimately, Samsung's N230 is a better offering. It has the same great design, twice the battery power and the performance of its single-core processor isn't far off that of the dual-core model on this N350.

A little pricey and battery life is below par; not our favourite Samsung netbook

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).


N550: Dual core Atom with a TDP of only 8.5 Watt. Because of the slow clock speed of 1.5 GHz it may be sometimes even slower than a N465 Atom CPU.» 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.


1.1 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.
