Samsung's N110 netbook got its official announcement and first review all in the same day, but we've had to wait a little longer to see the 10.1-inch ultraportable go up for pre-order. Now Samsung's own shop-online page has purchase details, and the N110 has also shown up at Buy.com.
We should perhaps have known something was up when the Samsung N310 launched with neither leaks nor inklings earlier today, but the company has surprised us a second time with another new netbook. The Samsung N110 replaces the NC10 and has already been across Laptop Mag's test bench; its predecessor was well-esteemed, so there's a lot for the new 10.2-inch netbook to live up to.
Samsung's N120 seemed like a netbook desperately searching for a niche back when the company announced it in March, promising a 10-inch display like its N110 sibling but the kind of larger keyboard you'd expect to find on a 12.1-inch machine. Bizarrely, though, it's not the keyboard that reviewers Liliputing found impressive about the N120, but the speakers; in actual fact, the 'board is something of a disappointment.
All eyes may be on Samsung's latest 10-inch netbooks right now - the N110, N120 and N310 - but we shouldn't forget the company's VIA Nano marvel. The Samsung NC20 is a slightly larger machine, at 12.1-inches WXGA, and uses the VIA Nano U2250 1.3GHz processor; it's now on sale at Newegg, priced at $549.99.
The Samsung N120 has gone up for pre-order on various sites, offering the netbook from between $443 and $475. Boasting the same 10.1-inch display as the Samsung N110, the N120 pairs it with the keyboard from a larger, 12.1-inch notebook and a battery promising up to 10.5hrs runtime.
As well as the N110 and N310, Samsung have a third new netbook, the Samsung N120. Equipped with the same 10.1-inch display as the N110, the Samsung N120's party trick is a full-sized 12.1-inch notebook keyboard; the Intel Atom-based netbook also promises up to 10.5hrs runtime from the 6-cell battery pack.
