You’ve seen the Samsung N210 and N220 netbooks with extra-long battery life and the NB30 “ultra durable” netbook. Rounding out Samsung’s new line of netbooks with Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processors is the Samsung N150.
This model features the usual Samsung specs including an island-style keyboard, touchpad with support for multitouch gestures, and a matte display. It doesn’t get the same stellar battery life as the other models. Samsung says the N150 will run for up to 7.5 hours on a charge. I suspect you’ll see a bit less than that under real world conditions. That’s clearly not bad by last year’s standards. But with the N210 running for up to 12 hours and the NB30 getting up to 11 hours of battery life, it looks like the N150 is the weakling of the bunch when it comes to battery life.
Of course, that also means the N150 will probably be the cheapest of Samsung’s new netbooks. We should know for certain once they start showing up at retail, which should be any day now.
