Love it - Excellent for the money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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)
Think this is a great piece of kit, especially for the price. It's very lightweight and has good battery life, some 6hrs or more. The screen is excellent having watched a couple of movies on it quite happily. The supplied software is preloaded so works almost straight out of the box. The Samsung utilities are pretty good and easy to use. I am using it mainly for working on the go so the portability issue is important to me. Like the idea of the anti bacterial keyboard. Haven't tried the webcam yet.
Drawbacks (if any) the screensize for some web pages and only one speaker, so a pair of reasonable headphones is a must.
I would recommend the following to use with this:
A decent pair of headphones or portable speakers, 2g memory upgrade,a small portable mouse,a portable DVD drive, and a small padded backpack or bag to keep it all in.
All in all very pleased with this and more than happy with Amazon for their pricing and quick delivery of it. If you want a low cost but decent spec'd netbook then this is it.

Thanks for the review. I just bought one myself. X Mini II Speakers are good to use, only £15.00 and very loud with bass. Did your netbook come with a large or small shift key? Thanks, John.

The UK version of Samsung NC10 came with a small right shift key. Does the N130 also?

Did you buy the Kingston 2GB memory upgrade, did it work and was it easy to install? Thanks

I found your recommendations of what to buy as extras a little baffling - surely people who buy netbooks are not wanting or expecting all those peripherals and extra add-ons. With what you are suggesting a person would be much more suited to buying a standard laptop which would be cheaper, and far easier to carry around than a newtbook with all the extras you are suggesting.

Sorry to break this to you but I found that stuff interesting. I always use a mini mouse with my lap top provided I have room for it. It comes in a tiny case and takes up hardly any room. External DVD drives are pretty small to as are external hard drives. None of these are essential but are handy items to have.

This review and the other ones encouraged me to buy this product. It was easy to load with regards to the internet etc, but won't accept the product key (from the underside of the netbook) to load Office. There is no paperwork that gives any other product key, and it is not easy to find out who to contact to ask this question. So .... although I am happy with the size etc of the netbook, I now need to seek extra help to get Office loaded - even if it's only for the year's trial. Any ideas?
