The Samsung N210 is one of 4 new netbook with Intel Atom Pine Trail processors that Samsung introduced in January. We’ve already seen an Italian review of the Samsung N220, a similar model which isn’t available in the US. Now Matt at Netbook Reviews has posted an in-depth look at the Samsung N210.
Matt like the chromed trim and the matte display, presumably not just because it goes with his name. The touchpad is reasonably sized and it includes multitouch gesture support. The computer’s performance appears to be pretty much what you’d expect from a netbook with an Atom N450 processor, although it did come out a little ahead of the Asus Eee PC 1005PE in the CrystalMark benchmark.
But the two areas where the N210 really scored highly in Matt’s review were the keyboard and battery life. Without doing a precise test, Matt says he feels that Samsung’s 11 hour estimate feels about right. And so does the keyboard, which has an island-style layout and no flex.
