This review is from: Samsung N210 Plus 10.1 inch netbook (Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz, 1Gb, 250GB, WLAN, Webcam, Up to 10hrs battery life, Windows 7 Starter) - White (Electronics)I purchased this to replace my ASUS 1005HA netbook that had a keyboard failure. Instead of paying for the keyboard replacement for a lesser known brand that failed within 6 months of purchase I opted for a well-known brand this time. But this well-known brand turned out to be a damp squib. This is a slow netbook, Windows 7 is probably not for 1 GB netbooks. ASUS with WinXP was much-much faster. Even the Quick Start is an eye-wash. On re-opening the netbook, it just loads the saved screen image quickly and you can see the HDD access LED light up to load the actual programs in memory after that. The netbook freezes and is virtually unusable till HDD access has finished. So, it actually takes the same time as any other before it is ready for you to work on it. And battery life is poorer to that of ASUS. I would recommend ASUS, if you can take the risk on quality.

Asus have been manufacturing motherboards for years and as such I would class Samsung the 'lesser known brand' as they seem to have only recently delved deeper into home computer territory...
