US retailer Best Buy is taking orders for the Samsung N310 netbook. I mean sure, the item is listed as backordered, and you may not be able to actually get one for a few weeks. But this makes Best Buy the first company in the US that I’m aware of to actually stock the N310. It’s already available for order in the UK for £399. Best Buy is selling it for $479.99 in the US.
This netbook packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. It has a 6 cell battery which Samsung claims could run for up to 11 hours on a charge.
Is it worth about $100 more than laptops with similar specs? I’ll leave that to you to decide, but if the netbook comes even close to getting the promised 11 hours of run time, that’s pretty spectacular. It also has a unique rubberized design, which has made for some pretty intriguing advertising opportunities.
