n510

Well that certainly didn’t take long. Less than a day after rumors started appearing about an NVIDIA ION-based Samsung laptop, we have something approaching proof. Two European retailers posted product pages for a Samsung N510 model yesterday. Those pages have been removed, but you can still find some details by checking out Googles cached versions.

So here’s what we know so far. The laptop with have an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, and the NVIDIA ION chipset with GeForce 9400M graphics. It will have a 160GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM, and ship with 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth. The computer will have a 6 cell battery, and if it’s anything like the Samsung N120, I’d expect it to get about 6 hours of battery life.

At least one store had a list price of €462.00 or about $650 for the netbook excluding VAT. The estimated ship date was June 30th, but I’d take that with a grain of salt.

Update: Blogeee has posted a few photos of the Samsung N510.

  1. Is really the bezel around the screen so thin? It’s the first time I see it that way, thsi could be a GREAT difference among the others 11.6 inches (hint: eeePC 1101).

  2. You can buy an 11.6″-Netbook for 400 USD, so why would anyone be stupid enough to pay 650 bucks for this one?

    1. My point exactly; except this 11″ has Samsung Lineage and NVIDIA Ion. That counts for a bit more price and even up to $500, but no more.

  3. nearly, nearly…………………….

    just stick a Via Nano in there and you’ll have a whole bucket of WIN!!!

  4. Two probabilities:

    1. Special refrigeration system.

    2. Microsoft (oh noes!)

  5. I’d pay $500 for that computer in American dollars. That must make Samsung grab their ‘bits’ and wince, but for a 1GB, Atom processor, 160 HDD 11″ netbook that is what it is worth. Sorry, the ION and screen is added value of $50, but it is not $200 of added value. I’ll compromise with a $500.00 price tag, but no higher.

    I don’t blame the manufacture for hoping they had found an ‘price angle’ with a larger screen and a better GPU, but I don’t think the market will pay that price. I don’t see more then $50 to $75 more added to the average price a netbook for those perks.

    I find the netbook very attractive and I’ll buy one for $450-$500, but not a penny more. For $650 I could buy a very nice notebook with DVD drive, more features, and just a bit of added weight.

    1. Presumably the price will drop fairly considerably should a raft of these things arriv but as things stand Samsung would be daft not to cash in on a market sector will minimal competition.

      AS with you I agree ~$500 sounds fair and that’s the price I’ll head in at – frankly however I’m just glad a decent 1024×768< capable netbook has finally arrived.
