I bought this Netbook as my wife has an NC10 with Windows XP which is absolutely superb. I hoped this next generation model with Windows 7 would be even better, but I was very disappointed. The N140 has basically the same architecture as the NC10 but a larger hard drive and other minor differences. Its build quality is fine although I felt that the build of the NC10 and the illuminated on/off button is better. However my major gripe is with Windows 7 compared to XP. Windows 7 might be better than Vista but when compared to the NC10/XP netbook, it is much slower which makes it considerably less usable. Also be aware that the version of Windows 7 on this netbook is a cut down version called 'Starter' that does not have the full functionality of other versions and does even less than XP, particularly with configuration and networking. Of course, there is a link on the desktop to upgrade to the full version of Windows 7 - for another £130! Also, many of the bundled software applications including Office and the games only come with a 1 year license and you'll have to pay to keep using them after that.

My advice is - do not buy this Netbook with Windows 7. Get it with XP if you must have a N140 - or better still, buy the NC10, its dirt cheap now and does virtually everything that the N140 does. Oh, one last thing - upgrade the RAM to 2GB - it's only 30 quid, takes 30 seconds to install and speeds up the boot up considerably.

I've been waiting for ever to find a netbook with the right spec to replace my old original EEE-PC. The Samsung's all have got really good reviews off the press over the last year which got my attention. I decided to wait for the Windows 7 versions - and when this came out I finally bought one. I've had it for a few weeks now - my thoughts:

- Keyboard - superb. Best out for a netbook. Full speed touch typing with very few errors for me. Huge asset over many of the competitors.
- Battery life. Full working day. I have seriously had 8 and a bit hours out of it.
- Windows 7. This may put some folk off as it is the 'starter' edition. It is so stripped down you can't even change your desktop picture (officially at least, unofficially I found out how to do it on google). That said, you get every feature you are likely to use on a netbook - and those you don't there are aps out there you can download for free. Even the starter version of Windows 7 feels quicker, more stable, and more intuitive than XP or Vista.
- 250 gig hard drive. Nice. (Though in time I may swap it out for a solid state drive to see if I can reduce boot time and increase battery life even more - I'm greedy like that)
- Webcam. Just worked straight away with skype. No configuration needed.

Things that stop it getting the 5 stars (I am fussy!)

Looks - if you are a show off then this may look a bit 'business-like' for you. Not an issue for me (I use it for business) but I bet my nephews wouldn't be impressed despite the piano shiny lid.
RAM - Why does it only come with 1 gig? This slows it down. First thing I did was buy a 2 gig RAM upgrade. Literally a 20 second job to do - don't be scared. And the result was noticeable.

I bought this for use when travelling. For that it is perfect. Setting up the new netbook is very easy and it all went trouble free. On partitioning the disk, I chose 60 Gb for C drive and balance as D drive. The key elements of the machine are great: e.g great resolution, good keyboard, has all the essential software. It is also slightly faster to boot than my Vista machine - but nothing revolutionary. When on net, I found streaming videos from many sites was a jerky-and-wait affair. This improved significantly on upgrading the RAM to 2GB - but didnt go away all together. Having said that, streaming majority of You Tube videos was ok. Also since I wanted to install CD based software like MS Office etc or sometimes watch DVD on move, I had to buy USB powered DVD player. If you need the above two add-ons(memory + external DVD)then it adds at least 100 pounds to the total mobile-computing package and of course a little more to carry. Battery life is allegedly 11 hours but I never got that - it was more like 7-8 hours and that was when using the machine for simple tasks like browsing net and NOT heavy computing like MS Office work or running external DVD. So I guess it can only go down from here. I didnt like that when opened the lid cannot go down too far. It restricts viewing angles - not sure why they couldnt put a little wider opening "hinge" on it.
Overall it is a nice machine, fast enough and it covers my need sufficiently well to have been worth the purchase. From the little research I did, it seemes that this netbook is among the best netbooks in its class.

For about £20 more than the Windows XP N140 you can upgrade to the Windows 7. After two weeks I can say that I'm overall satisfied (not wowed, but happy nonetheless). Boot up time is much less than my 4GB desktop or the 2GB Sony Vaio - both of which run XP. In fairness, I've only got AVG and Skype on the Samsung's start up menu but my gut feeling is that it is lot faster in an "apples to apples" comparison. No pun intended.

The look is much cleaner in terms of fonts, icons, etc. And Microsoft seems to have gone out of its way to be more deferential to its users in terms of optionality (for instance upgrades). Where I have issue is on Windows 7 and its use (more precisely the lack of My Documents), I need to spend a bit more time with the new directory system. I also have problems with a driver on my Doro 225ipc VOIP phone (but reading the reviews this seems to be a hangover from Vista). The battery time is nearer 8 hours (on normal settings - i.e. WiFi on). Samsung have included a smart mouse pad as well that allows H/V scrolling, page turning, but I'm a bit of a blind cobbler so I can't get these functions to work consistently on the small mouse pad. The function ESC key provides a quick shut down but when restarting Firefox seems to hang. Its a minor quibble in the great scheme of things.

Disclosure: I'm don't use the Samsung for memory heavy image programmes such as Photoshop but I am a professional Excel developer.

Hope the review was useful to you.
