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 $449.95in black, blue, or orange.
