n120-wide-open

Samsung has been making popular netbooks for a while now, but apparently the company hadn’t seen fit to release them in Australia… until now. Samsung has begun adding mini-laptops to is Australian web site, indicating that the N110, N120, and NC20 models should be available in that country soon.

There’s no official word on pricing, but Portable Monkey found a few Australian retailers that are already taking orders with prices for the Samsung N110 between $772 and $838 AUD and the NC20 going for about $950 AUD.

Incidentally, somebody asked me the other day how wide the Samsung N120 lid opens. The picture to the right should give you a good idea.

  1. PLEASE CANADA! Come on Samsung, we have all your other products up here, why not netbooks?

      1. But in both country, less than 5% of the total land area is used. This has no relation. The problem is that Samsung doesn’t see Canada as an opportunity to sell a lot of laptops because other big players are already entrenched.

    1. Yes they are. Most of the Netbooks available to us Aussies are.

      I find it frustrating that prices are based on the USD when geographically Australia is a lot closer to Asia, where just about all electronic goods are made.

      I would rather the AUD be based on a strong currency in the Asia-Pacific region. Maybe we need a single currency like the EU.

    2. Expensive? I’ll say.

      >prices for the Samsung N110 between $772 and $838 AUD and the NC20 going for about $950 AUD.

      My goodness, you would have to be INSANE to buy any of those.

      I can say that with first-hand experience, because I am in Australia and typing this right now on a Kogan Agora Pro netbook.

      https://www.kogan.com.au/shop/kogan-agora-netbook-pro/

      The blurb says this:

      ‘Australia’s Cheapest 10″ Netbook’ @ $549.

      The Kogan Agora Netbook PRO has a widescreen 10.1″ LCD, 2GB of RAM, 6-cell battery, and weighs only 1.4kg. Combined with the gOS operating system, it is your perfect internet companion. At only AU$539, the Kogan Agora Netbook PRO is the cheapest 10″ netbook in it’s class. It is the perfect balance of ease of use, portability, features, and value for money.

      — So you get a machine with twice the RAM and a full set of software applications included, and you save $223 dollars.

      1. And it is still expensive. You aussies must really hate reading about netbooks selling for $150 US.
