Samsung's N110 netbook gets tested
Not even released yet
Samsung seem very keen on taking a big slice of the netbook market and with the N310 launched yesterday it seemed like there weren't going to be any more new models at the moment, but it seems like we were wrong, as Laptop Mag has already put another model that has yet to be announced through its paces.
The N110 seems more like a direct replacement for the NC10, although Samsung has improved the design in several ways. The chassis is about the same size as the NC10 and the N110 gets to keep the 6-cell battery, which Laptop Mag managed to squeeze over 7h of battery life out of.
The spec hasn't changed much with the N110 using the standard Atom N270 CPU and 945GSE chipset combination, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a 160GB SATA hard drive. The screen measures 10.2 inches and has a native resolution of 1,024x600 pixels. Other features include 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, three USB 2.0 ports, a 3-in-1 card reader, a D-sub connector, Ethernet jack and a pair of audio jacks.
At $469 (€343/£319) the N110 is much better priced than the N310, although it doesn't quite offer the same striking design, nor do you get the same kind of keyboard, but it's still a rather decent looking netbook. There's no word on when the N110 will be available, but we'd expect it won't be too far off.
