Asus may have kick-started the netbook revolution utilizing its Eee PC, but Samsung has emerged among the dominant players in this market thanks to a wide range of devices that feature style, comfort and superb construction. The N150 netbook, in that case, has a lot to meet.

The keyboard marks a departure with the usual Samsung offering - as an alternative for shiny, flat keys, the N150抯 buttons have rounded edges including a matte finish - nonetheless quality is still excessive. The keys feel receptive and welcoming and, even if there抯 not quite that much travel as we抎 enjoy, we抎 be comfortable making use of the N150 for long inputting sessions.

We were able to get up to date quickly, too, in part as a consequence of sensible layout: the double-height bring back key and normal-sized living space bar, shift and control buttons are usually in their usual sites, and the standard keys will be of a good sizing. Our only qualm is a delete key, which might be smaller than we抎 such as.

Not much, really. A N150's innards are significant and original, but her chassis isn't particularly ground-breaking. The glossy black lid and also its particular off-centre Samsung logo tend to be pleasant enough -- provided you no longer mind having to fresh fingerprint smudges off regularly -- along with the anodised red stripe round the sides adds charm.

Samsung N150 operation

Additionally, the pre-installed software can lessen the pace of the system抯 performance, which may become frustrating. As it only possesses a 1. 66GHz Intel Atom N450 PC and 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM, multitasking isn抰 among the list of netbook抯 strong points; it performs at it is best when performing just one single task. In our effectiveness tests, the N150抯 good results were solid.

The N150 might be exclusive to PC Globe. It's well priced, but as compared to earlier Samsung netbooks in addition to our current Best Order, the Toshiba NB305, a battery life is very poor. The screen is likewise disappointing, and despite an effective keyboard, the touchpad might be too small. The Toshiba NB305 seems to have over 10 hours' battery life including a much clearer screen, defining it as a better buy.

Connections include three well-spaced USB sockets (one to the left, two on this right), Ethernet, VGA socket for use which includes a bigger monitor, and earbuds and mic jacks. Ladies 3-in-1 memory card target audience.

The graphics performance of your N150 is dependant for the integrated graphics controller in your Intel Atom N450 CPU and it抯 not extremely fast. You won抰 be in the position to play anything but the easiest of games on the Samsung N150 (games which don抰 use complex visuals for example), and even Flash-based video game titles may run sluggishly on.

Either way, the 1024x600 resolution of your screen isn抰 high enough to show off most games anyway. There is a Samsung electricity called Easy Resolution to use to bump up your resolution to 1024x768 (you can do the same principle from the Intel Display screen Driver properties), but it again makes the screen glance squished. Standard definition Xvid-encoded clips will play smoothly, but anything over standard definition will put much more stress on the process.

Below that is an extremely large (considering the figures on the netbook) trackpad having a button bar directly here it. The trackpad itself is user-friendly and uncomplicated, sensitive enough to allow fluid motion all over the screen and even multi-touch assist for scrolling, zooming and rotating to your website through commands.

While the performance of this Samsung N150 is typical on a netbook, its design aspires being a little more than run-of-the-mill. In general, the design is very well executed, but it still looks a little bit of tacky in places. Specially, the screen could glimpse better. It has some sort of matte finish, which we love while it means lights won抰 often be reflected off it, but together there is a sleek strip that frames this screen and becomes distracting in the event the light reflects off the idea. Another quibble relates in the unnecessary label that really reads 慏igital Livecam? next in the webcam.

Get past the good and bad points of the design, that is certainly fairly typical, and you're allowed start using the computer for what ?t had been intended.
