– Samsung N110-12PBK – $469.99 – Intel N270 Atom, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, 1.3MP Webcam, Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR, 6-cell Battery
The next netbook/ultraportable from Samsung that’s available in the US may not be the 12-inch VIA-powered Samsung NC20. Last week, the 10.1-inch Intel Atom-powered Samsung N110 was announced and it’s available for pre-order.
LAPTOP Magazine mentions a release date in the first week of April, but Buy.com seems to be the only retailer currently listing it. Buy.com has a pre-order up for $441.99 (Normally $469 USD):
– Samsung NP-N110-KA01US (Pre-Order)
It’s still based on the Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) instead of the N280, and has a few other features found in the original Samsung netbook, the Samsung NC10, however there are a few other key differences over the NC10:
– Glossy display
– Different chassis (black glossy with a red border)
– Larger touchpad
– Larger/high capacity battery (5900 mAh)
– 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
– 93% Full-size keyboard
– 1GB RAM
– 160GB 5400rpm (2.5″ SATA)
– Windows XP Home
– 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0
Samsung claims a maximum of 1GB of RAM, but it remains to be seen if this is the case, since the NC10 was easily upgradeable as far as memory.
LAPTOP Magazine has published what maybe the first review of the N110, at least in North America. With their LAPTOP Magazine battery test, they were able to get nearly seven and a half hours out of the battery. It was highly rated by LAPTOP Magazine – they gave it their Editor’s Choice award.
