Samsung N110, N120: 10-hour netbooks

Samsung has detailed a new pair of 10.1-inch mini laptops -- the N110 and N120, which claim to offer seriously impressive battery life

Samsung has pumped out details of a new pair of 10.1-inch netbooks -- the N110 and N120. Both are powered by Intel Atom CPUs, and claim 9.3-hour and 10.5-hour battery life respectively. Though such figures mean naff-all until we've tested them under our own conditions, it's a promising little promise if nowt else.

So with what are these Samsung sandwiches filled? Like yesterday's N310 , the N110's keyboard is 93 per cent the size of a full-sized board of keys, whereas the more appealing N120's is full-size. Both use LED-backlit displays, weigh 1.3kg, and incorporate 1.3-megapixel cameras, memory card readers, three USB sockets and run Windows XP Home.

The more delectable N120, pictured below, should in addition to that full-size keyboard and better battery life deliver decent sound quality. Or at least be louder, as it's got a dedicated subwoofer built in somewhere.

Samsung's laptops average just over seven out of 10, based on all models we've reviewed, so we're expecting neither miracles nor horse waste wrapped in a plastic chassis. Both models will be on sale in Europe, Asia and the US in April, with the N110 going for £349 and the N120 setting you back £379.

Update: A previous version of this story referred to the N110 and N120 as the NC110 and NC120. Apologies for the error. Prices have also been added.
