Perfect for the price,
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)
I already have an Imac at home, but wanted something portable that I could use when I'm out and about. As I only wanted something primarily for net general browsing, streaming music and video plus a bit of word processing I didn't feel the need to get a fully-blown laptop. My budget certainly didn't stretch to a Macbook!
So after doing my research I went for the Samsung N130. I had seen the Acer Aspire models in the shops but they looked a bit flimsy to me. I placed my order and the next day delivery came up trumps.
I've been using it for general surfing and playing songs off Spotify. Screen is good and nice big keys. The mouse takes a bit of getting used to but is fine after a couple of sessions. As mentioned before the speaker is pretty rubbish so either invest in a pair of headphones or add-on speakers. I've also gone for a 2GB memory upgrade just so it zips along at a nice speed.
If you already have a primary home machine and are looking for a cheap second unit then you should give serious consideration to the N130.
