There's no denying that the NF210 is a very nice netbook indeed. The slick design goes some way towards justifying the slightly high price tag, as does the satisfyingly comfortable keyboard and the zippy dual-core processor. If price is the most important consideration, then you can probably find a comparable model for less money. However, it you can afford the NF210, then you're unlikely to be disappointed, presuming that you aren't bothered about the lack of an HDMI port.

We wanted to like the Samsung NF210, if only because of its luxuriously sleek appearance and comfortable keyboard. Unfortunately, compared to a single core Atom netbook, the performance of its dual core Atom processor currently isn't much faster and its battery life is shorter too. If you can live with its plainer looks, Samsung's similarly priced single core N230 is a better buy for travelers thanks to its superior battery life.

Good looks, but it's pricey for a netbook, and you'll hardly notice the new dual-core processor

Samsung's NF210 impresses with a dual core Atom CPU and high capacity battery, but its unique design is what really sets it apart. However, it's still a netbook at heart, so with a price tag of £330 it won't be for everyone.

84% Review Samsung NF210 Netbook | Notebookcheck
Just when you thought it was safe... The NF210-HZ1 is Samsung’s second Shark netbook. The matt HD screen and powered USB of the first Shark are omitted; but it scores points for portability - a 3G UMTS module is included as standard. Is this a useful addition to Samsung’s range?

65% Samsung NF210 : A Netbook with Sexy Curves but Average Scores
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The NF210 is priced at Rs. 22,990 and the question is should you buy it? The NF210 recorded some decent scores, but netbooks are always expected to run for longer durations. Also, the hard drive was a little too slow. While the NF210’s curves and looks bowled us over, it performs very much like the Toshiba NB520. So, if you’re not too hell bent on looks, we suggest you rather go for the NB520 which costs about Rs. 1,500 lesser and will give you the same performance.

Battery life is impressive, but the NF210 is disappointing in other key areas. The swish exterior is undermined by the bland and boring inside, while the size of the screen and the infuriating trackpad are serious letdowns. The hardware specifications are just about satisfactory, and this netbook could suit those who need a small, lightweight system.

Sadly, we noticed little improvement over the old versions in our benchmarking tests. Typically for a netbook, you can run basic office tasks and browse the web, but not much more.

The Samsung NF210-A01AU is a great netbook. It feels comfortable to use, it's light and it looks good. Best of all, its battery life is tremendous! It lasted over six hours when playing videos with its screen at full brightness, and over 10 hours when performing basic tasks. We recommend it to anyone who wants a netbook with excellent battery life.

Comment

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.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


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

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).

» 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).

N470: Upcoming Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the CPU should be compareable to a Atom Z450 with 1.86 GHz and about 5-10% above the N450.

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.

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.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.4 kg:


74.23%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
