Samsung N110 Netbook With Improved Touchpad

Samsung struck a serious cord with its NC10 netbook, and is now revealing its second 10-inch netbook.After having announced the new NC310 netbook, Samsung has surprisingly updated its netbook lineup with the addition of yet another model, dubbed N110. The new model will replace the company's successful NC10 netbook and will compete in the same performance segment as other 10-inch netbooks currently available out there. Despite being built
on the same platform as most of the other 10-inch netbooks on the market, the new N110 appears to be capable of providing its users with a performance level superior to that of its competitors.

This time, Samsung is looking to build upon the success of its best-selling NC10, by announcing its third 10-inch netbook called the Samsung N110. The N110 has improved on its predecessor in a number of areas including an expanded touchpad and a higher capacity 6-cell 5900 mAh battery (versus 5200 mAh in the NC10) that should give over seven hours of battery life. The design is also slightly different with a glossy lid with red border.

Beyond those changes the N110 gets a slightly more professional looking chassis with a black glossy lid and red border. Other than that the specs remain the same as the NC10 including a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB 5,400 rpm hard drive, and Windows XP Home Service Pack 3. It also sports 802.11b/g wireless, and Bluetooth 2.0.


Despite having been released today, fellows over at Laptop Magazine were lucky enough to score one of these new netbooks and put it through its paces. According to their review, Samsung has managed to create a netbook that comes very close to perfection. Some of its major strong points include the improved ergonomics of the touchpad and the 7+ hours of battery life.

The N110 will be available the first week of April through Amazon.com and other etailers for $469.99.

Re: Samsung N110 Netbook With Improved Touchpad

Laptop Mag has already reviewed the N110 and found that the improvements made over the NC10 have made one of the best 10-inch netbooks on the market even better. They believe that Samsung has created a ?near-perfect netbook in its N110?, that continues to outperform the competition. Whilst other models may be cheaper, it believes that Samsung?s premium price tag is worth it for those who demand longer battery lives.

Lets have some features of N110:-

Updated Design


The N110 is the same weight and size as its forebear. Measuring 10.3 x 7.3 x 1.2 inches and weighing 2.8 pounds (even with the higher-capacity six-cell battery), the N110 is slightly wider and thicker than HP Mini 2140, but thinner and lighter than the 3.2-pound ASUS Eee PC 1000HE. When we popped the N110 (in its included felt case) and its AC adapter in a bag, the travel weight of 3.4 pounds didn't put any strain on our shoulder.

Large, Spacious Keyboard


Thankfully, Samsung left the keyboard on the N110 untouched. The 93 percent of full-size layout is comfortable, and the raised keys provided nice tactile feedback. The feel of the keys and the size of the keyboard isn?t all the N110 has got going for it: The right Shift key is full size and directly below the Enter key, right where it should be. While we continue to prefer the feel of the coated and durable keys on the HP Mini 2140, the Samsung N110?s comfortable keyboard will satisfy even the fastest of touch typists.

Expanded Touchpad, Ports

At 2.3 x 1.1 inches, the touchpad on the Samsung NC10 was disappointingly small and vertically very narrow. Samsung has incrementally expanded the trackpad on the N110 to 2.5 x 1.3 inches, which is now comparable to those on other netbooks, including the Acer Aspire One AOD150 and the MSI Wind U120, but it's not quite as large as that on the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE.

Also improved is the mouse button, which is slightly more raised than on the original, though it still remains a single rocker bar, and lacks a divot to separate the left and right sides. We would prefer two dedicated buttons, but this arrangement is still better than the narrow single button on the latest Aspire One and the vertically oriented touchpad buttons on the HP Mini 2140. The dedicated scrolling bar on the N110's touchpad was useful for moving through long Web pages.

The N110 houses the same netbook ports and slots as the NC10, including 3 USB ports, a 3-in-1 memory card reader, mic and headphone jacks, a VGA port, and an Ethernet jack. Unlike the HP Mini 2140, the N110 lacks an ExpressCard slot for adding a mobile broadband modem card, but you can always use a USB modem.

Re: Samsung N110 Netbook With Improved Touchpad

keypoints:-
  1. The N110 comes with a black glossy coating, that whilst looks sleeker, is a magnet for fingerprints. The burgundy trim along the edges gives it a more professional look.
  2. The matte display of the NC10 has been replaced with a glossy, 10.2-inch, 1024 x 600-pixel screen on the N110. Glare didn?t seem to be a problem.
  3. The N110 is the same weight and size as the NC10. It measures 10.3 x 7.3 x 1.2 inches and weighs 2.8 pounds (1.3kg), even with the higher-capacity six-cell battery.
  4. Samsung left the keyboard on the N110 untouched. The 93 percent of full-size layout is comfortable, and the raised keys provided nice tactile feedback.
  5. Larger touchpad. The touchpad size has increased to 2.5 x 1.3 inches versus 2.3 x 1.1 inches found on the NC10.
  6. The mouse button is slightly more raised than on the original. The single rocker bar remains and lacks a divot to separate the left and right sides.
