Good value for money,
This review is from: Samsung N130 10.1 inch Netbook (Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz Processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, up to 6 Hour Battery Life , XP Home, Black) (Electronics)
I needed a budget, light-weight netbook for travelling across the world. I reluctantly left my usual laptop (MacBook Pro) behind as it was just too valuable for the kind of trip I had planned.
While I am not a big fan of MS Windows the little Samsung N130 netbook served me well. It's Samung's budget netbook. However, it comes with a fairly decent spec given the price. It is certainly enough to check your email on the go, do some web browsing, use Skype and create word documents - exactly the stuff I needed to do while travelling. I even managed to watch movies I had downloaded from iTunes. And if someone had nicked it the financial loss wouldn't have been enormous.
All in all, it does exactly what it is meant to do. I would not recommend it as your only laptop / computer given it's small screen and lack of speed. But for travelling it's excellent.
