Samsung N210, N220, N150 and NB30: netbooks with 12-hour batteries FTW

Samsung has announced a brand new line of netbooks, all of which are powered by Intel's latest Atom processor -- the 1.66GHz N450 -- which offers even lower power consumption

Samsung has announced a brand-new line of netbooks , all of which are powered by Intel's latest Atom processor -- the 1.66GHz N450 -- which offers even lower power consumption to push the boundaries of netbook battery life further into double-figure hours.

There are four new models in total: the Samsung N210, N220, N150 and NB30. We are promised 12 hours of battery life from the N210 and N220, 11 for the NB30 and 8.5 for the N150. All have 10.1-inch LED-backlit displays.

Although Samsung has officially announced all four models, we're still waiting to hear more about the specifics on what's inside. Leaked specs for the N220, however, include 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard disk, 802.11n wireless and the sod-all-features Windows 7 Starter Edition OS .

Don't expect radically new specifications for the other models, though -- they're netbooks after all. The selling point here is battery life, and the power-efficient integrated graphics which are now built directly into the Atom chip itself.

Our reviews of previous Samsung netbooks give us reason to think they'll all be decent performers when they're released in the UK later this month, all being well. Prices are TBC.
