The N210 comes with a wealth of, mostly useless, pre-installed software. Firstly, there's the Game Pack, from Oberon Media -- a collection of children's demo games that anyone over the age of 9 years old will probably never touch. The best we could find was Dairy Dash -- a game that involved a man feeding a goat, or something. It was rubbish.
Arguably the most interesting addition is Samsung Movies -- an online service -- that lets you rent movies for 99p or buy them outright for a fiver. The picture quality isn't particularly breathtaking, but it's on a par with similar services such as BBC iPlayer.
The Samsung N210 has the same internal gubbins as most netbooks, so it provides similar performance to most of its rivals. It returned a PCMark 2005 score of 1,350, which is about average, but it felt a little slow during day-to-day use -- possibly due to the amount of additional (read: pointless) software installed on our test machine.
Thankfully, its battery life was a little more impressive. The machine lasted a whopping 7 hours 20 minutes in our Battery Eater Classic test, which runs the CPU at full capacity until the battery is exhausted. With more frugal use, the machine can last in the region of 12 hours -- which is fantastic.
The N210 is an excellent netbook. It doesn't do anything particularly different to rivals such as the MSI Wind U135, but small touches, such as the matte display, isolated keyboard and extraordinary battery life mean it's definitely one to consider.
