Samsung's N220 netbook shows up in retail

Written by Slobodan Simic

Non-glare Pinetrail

Almost every notebook/netbook manufacturer will have something to do with Pinetrail, and although some of them have already been detailed and pixellized, these are the first details about Samsung's offering. The N220 as the French retailer lists it, is identical to the N140 except for the new N450 1.66GHz CPU.

The dimensions of the N220 are 26.4x18.8x3.6cm (10.4x7.4x1.4 inches) and weighs around 1.3kg (2.9 pounds). The new 10.1-inch Samsung N220 features Intel's Pineview N450 working at 1.66GHz, 1GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive. We are quite glad that at least someone went for the non-glossy screen and we are pretty sure that many consumers will appreciate this, especially those that have already seen the glossy screen in action. The 10.1-inch screen has a rather standard 1024x600 resolution.

The rest of the specs are pretty standard as well as they include 802.11bgn Wifi, Bluetooth 2.1, Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, D-sub output, webcam and a card reader.

It will be shipped with Windows 7 Starter Edition OS and will feature a 6-cell 5900mAh battery that has a 11.5-hours advertised run time, which should get you around 7 hours of real time work, if the marketing run time is anywhere near the truth.

The Samsung N220 was listed at €349 in France which converts to around US $500 but we guess that the States will see it at much lower price.
