Good: The memory and keyboard
Bad: The cover that shows every fingerprint
Comment: As a previous owner of an ASUS eecPc 901, the N110 is a vast improvement. Small in footprint but big in power and a keyboard that is usable for anyone used to larger extended keyboards. Perfect for taking on the road with using Dropbox as my choice of cloud platform. Easy to get in and out of my case while travelling and wireless access is never an issue to connect on the move. The file transfer of Bluetooth makes connecting my Samsung Omnia and N110 simple and effective. So, my recommendations are from a user on the move that expects soild performance and dependability.
Bad: I don't like setting the external DVD drive every time I want to watch a movie. But then, it IS a netbook!
Comment: It's perfect for me!
The camera's good; it's quite pacey; I'm multi-tasking with no problems; and connectivity hasn't been a problem yet.
Videos are a little small, but you'll expect that from a netbook. Web pages open normally, though (no side-scrolling), and the audio is good.
As with all netbooks, one must use an external DVD drive, (but that's OK, CDs are phasing out anyway, and in a couple of years, DVDs will go the same way).
But the icing on the cake is the battery. With normal usage, I charge it once in 3 days!
(Right now, the "Battery" icon says that I have 25% of charge left, with 1 hour, 50 minutes remaining!)
And I really do not understand the stiff reviewers who keep moaning about fingerprints on the cover!
Seriously, just get your handkerchief and rub it if it bothers you so much!
All in all, the Samsung N110 is a great piece of work. Dish out a few bucks if it's too much for you. But take my word, it's worth the money!
Good: Long hours
Bad: It's a netbook
Comment: Seriously, this no innovation, no new graphics card netbook gets an 8.8 for just for being its usual netbook self? What does the N10 get then, a perfect 10?
