For people that are always on the move (or those of you that are too lazy to get up and plug your laptop in the power socket) the modern day net-book could be the essential tool to keep you connected to your work, colleagues, email and social network sites like twitter or face-book. The problem with many netbooks is that they lack the features demanded by their target market. However there are a few new ones on the market that seem to deliver all the required spec.
The Samsung N1110 netbook is a compact laptop which manages to pack in a decent keyboard similar to that of one found on a ‘full size’ laptop. Also this portable beauty has a 10.14 inch led screen that delivers crisp, detailed and clean images. The spec describes the screen as being 33% brighter than any standard screen. The most important feature of an led screen is its power consumption, which is much much lower. When coupled with the efficient Intel Atom N270 processor the N1110 can deliver up to 9 hours of battery life.
The battery life makes it perfect for mobile computing and when coupled with its wireless capabilities enables you to surf the web on the move too. All you have to do is connect to a public wireless network and away you go. The n110 also has a integrated 1.3 Mega pixel web cam which works well with all instant messaging services.
Sharing data between your N110 Netbook and other devices is easy thanks to great connectivity. Bluetooth connectivity makes sharing music tracks, photos and files easy, while the 3-in-1 memory card reader is ideal for reading a range of media cards. You can also use the 3 USB ports to connect up your mp3 player, digital camera and more.
The Samsung N110 Black Netbook makes portable internet browsing easy as its only 1.26kg. Its 6 cell lithium battery can give up to a huge 9 hours of battery life with every charge. It’s a good looking piece of kit too so you won’t be embarressed when you pull it out of your bag on the train or in the local starbucks. Also it only costs £349 – you get a lot of spec for your money which in todays climate is extremely important.
