April 7, 2009 The netbook marketplace is getting more and more competitive and following hot on the heels of the recently released ASUS Eee PC 1000HE is Samsung’s latest entry into the market, the N110 mini notebook. The N110 boasts many of the features of the 1000HE including a 10.1-inch screen, 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM and claims of up to 9.5 hours of battery life in a unit that is slightly thinner and lighter than its ASUS competitor.

While the same size and weight as its predecessor, the NC10, the N110 has increased the size of the touch pad to 2.5 x 1.3-inches, while still not as large as the 1000HE is definitely an improvement over the 2.3 x 1.1-inches of the NC10. The NC10 also retains the keyboard that is 93 percent the size of a full sized keyboard, which should prove more than usable for touch typists using the unit, but replaces the matte display of the NC10 with a 1024 x 600 resolution glossy 10.1-inch screen.

Powering the unit is Intel’s Atom N270 processor coupled with the Intel 945GSE graphics processor with 128MB of shared memory and the unit’s 1GB of RAM can be upgraded to a total of 2GB. It comes with Windows XP Home pre-installed and includes the stock standard 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR capabilities as well as three USB 2.0 ports, mic and headphone jacks, VGA port, Ethernet jack, 1.3 megapixel camera and a 3-in-1 card reader for SD, SDHC and MMC cards.

The Samsung N110 measures 10.27 x 1.19 x 7.3-inches and weighs in at 2.78 lbs. It carries a one-year warranty and will retail for USD$469.99.
