Reviews for the Samsung NC110-A01US
The Samsung NC110 is a very robust and good quality netbook that you can use for general computing and browsing. It is not the most powerful or aesthetically complex netbook in its price range and it does have a couple of weaknesses in performance and design. However, for just under $300, you will find that this notebook can already suffice your needs for a solid, high quality and desirable piece for your daily computing.

Although Samsung arrived late in the netbook sector, it made quite an impact when it did get there with the release of the NC10, a landmark product in its time. Although the Samsung NC110 doesn't do any better than the rest, it does at least as well. With higher battery life, it could have stood out from the crowd a bit more but, as things stand, it's still a netbook you can buy without worrying about making a bad choice.

Battery life, on the other hand, was a different story in a positive way. We were able to get just over 7 hours of battery life, which is above the average for most other similar netbooks.

The Samsung NC110 is a notch above the pack in both looks and stamina. Otherwise, it's just a standard netbook--and unless you are willing to spend the time tuning the unit's software installation, you won't get decent performance out of it.

The Samsung NC110 is a solid entry in the budget 10 inch netbook space. It’s not the most powerful mini-laptop around and it doesn’t have the highest resolution display or the longest battery life. But for under $300 you get a reasonably good keyboard, an adequate processor, quiet operation, decent speakers, and a matte display.

For about the same price, you can pick up the HP Mini 1103 or Toshiba mini NB505, both of which offer slightly better performance and longer battery life. Still, those who like the Samsung brand won't be disappointed with the NC110.

Standing out in any sort of market for budget products is never easy, and making every penny count is key. While some performance issues hold the NC110 down, this is the only netbook to offer strong battery life, 3D sound, and a useful Fast Start feature that will have you working—in Windows—in seconds.

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.
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).
N455: Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated DDR3 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.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
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.
