Samsung N210 Netbook
It is a little difficult to conclude without any certainty if the first portable computer was the laptop. After all, what was considered as a laptop back in the day would most certainly not be considered a laptop by today’s standards. There is one thing we can be certain of without even batting an eye: the first portable computers did not look like the typical laptops or netbooks that we are accustomed to seeing today.
If you’re in the market for a laptop or netbook, there’s a reasonable chance you already own a desktop PC and may want to add or supplement your computing needs with greater portability, or perhaps jockey for time on the family PC? When it comes to choosing between a notebook and a netbook, perhaps the first (and most important) question is how much computing horsepower do you need? The second question, almost equally important, is what do you plan on using the device to do? If you need the ultimate portability and have light computing needs, then the netbook is probably the answer.
Netbooks are not going to be suited to arduous tasks that most notebooks will not have a problem doing. Instead, what you will find is that many netbooks are more like a multifaceted devices primarily based on communications. Netbooks are ideal for web browsing or to keeping in touch through e-mail or instant messaging. Whereas notebooks could be used for more robust applications, this is truly where the notebook and netbook start to differ. The varying computing power available in each also translates into different prices as well, with netbooks usually costing less than half of a decent notebook.
Today we will be looking at the Samsung N210 Netbook. The Samsung N210 is very similar to the majority of the current netbooks on the market, based on the Intel Atom N450 processor and offering limited upgrades. While there isn’t much in terms of computing power increase on the CPU, the advantage here is that lower power consumption is offered, which results in a longer battery life.
Let’s have a look at the Samsung N210 and see how this netbook fares.
