Samsung N150-11

The Good Sturdy design; cool color palette; matte screen.

The Bad Narrow touch pad with flimsy buttons; cramped keyboard; merely average battery life.

The Bottom Line Samsung's solid N150 Netbook feels very roadworthy, but other Netbooks have a longer battery life.

Review

Samsung N150-11

While its components inside may be the standard configuration for stock Netbooks, Samsung's new N150 version of its minilaptop line at least stands out from the crowd with a unique design. The back of its lid--a deep red that fades to black at the edges--calls to mind a sunburst guitar finish and is a nice chance of pace from the basic black we're used to seeing in most Netbooks.

At $349, The N150 falls into the same price range as other retail fixed configuration Netbooks we've reviewed. It costs about $50 more than entry-level $299 models, but for the same price, you can also get the Asus Eee PC 1018 that offers similar components, but a slimmer profile and a more upscale brushed-metal look, as well as more than 30 minutes of additional battery life.

Despite its price, if the bold colorful design of the N150 appeals to you, this is a perfectly capable Netbook at a reasonable price.
