Samsung N150-11 review: Samsung N150-11

Annual power consumption cost
Samsung N150-11
$2.96 

Where the Samsung N150-11 was weakest was its battery life. While Netbooks with Intel's low-power Atom CPUs can run for 6 hours or more, this model only ran for 4 hours and 40 minutes on our video playback battery drain test, using the included six-cell battery. That's still plenty of time, but it was the shortest of our four retail back-to-school Netbooks. Compounding matters, the system's battery is very large, sticking out significantly from the bottom of the chassis.

Samsung includes an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty with the system. Support is accessible through a toll-free phone line that's open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, and a very well organized custom support page for each specific laptop model with online knowledge base and driver download links.
