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 had the Samsung n140 for just over a month now and I have to say it's a fantastic netbook; I purchased the XP version since at the time the Windows 7 version was a good £40 extra and I didn't have any interest in the extra 90gb of hard drive capacity (or Win7 Basic, bleh!). I did however immediately upon delivery upgrade the netbook to Windows 7 Professional provided free by uni.

I write this review basically to give a quick technical overview for any issues you may be thinking you'll encounter, and to disparage any of the other negative reviews I read on Amazon prior to purchasing myself.

Firstly; the screen DOES tilt back far enough, clearly reviewers on Amazon are for the most part hunchbacked or something as I read so many people complaining about this... I have not once wanted it to tilt back any further than it can; most of the time I don't even use it at max angle, the notion that this is something to complain about or even not purchase the item for is something I fail to be able to fathom.

For the tech savvy, putting Windows 7 on this netbook manually was simple, I just partitioned it with Acronis (any partition editor will do) and installed Windows 7 (via a quick win7>usb stick tutorial), and it found all the drivers itself, then just downloaded all the little helpful Samsung apps for the n140 from their website (enables fn keys etc.).

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.
