samsung go laptop

The Samsung Go is a unique looking netbook with a rubberized (but not necessarily ruggedized) case that comes in a handful of bright colors. In Europe it’s sold as the Samsung N310, but the company decided to give the Go a new name for the US market. The US version also ships standard with a high capacity 6 cell, 8850mAh battery, which Laptop Magazine says is good for about 8.5 hours of use.

The folks at Laptop got a chance to put the Samsung Go through the paces, and in addition to the long battery life, the Go has a somewhat more durable case than most netbooks while taking up a little less room on your lap or desk than the slightly larger Asus Eee PC 1005HA. The netbook reportedly has a an excellent keyboard that’s coated with silver ion powder to help keep nasty bacteria away.

The Samsung Go is available from Amazon for $449.95 in black, blue, or orange.

  1. And when that 6 cell battery in Europe??????????????????????????

    EUROPE exists in the world too, Samsung!!!!!!

    4 cell for Europe and 6 cell battery for US???. Well, never again buying anything from Samsung then!! Never again, GO and buy your garbage in USA!!

  2. Well, $449 is not too bad for a price point, I say that given that the NC10 at launch was $489 and NC10 is $389 now. If the screen were not reflective I would tell people to buy it without any hesitation.

    But, when N510 come down the pike in a few months that opinion might change. Although, N510 is sure to be a $499 or above product when it arrives this fall.
