Samsung introduces NC10-successor netbooks

2GHz Atom chips on board?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Samsung has unveiled two 10.1in “mini notebooks” - netbooks to you, me and Intel's lawyers - for buyers that value portability above all else.

Samsung's N110: 2GHz Atom on board?

The N110 and N120 are both based on unspecified Atom processors - almost certainly the faster models Intel's expected to ship next month - and each feature a six-cell battery. But while the N110’s power pack will last for roughly 9.3 hours, the N120’s battery life extends to 10.5 hours, Samusung claimed.

The N120 sounds as though it’s targeted at audio junkies because of the integrated dual 1.5W speakers and dedicated sub-woofer. It also boasts a full-size 12in “notebook style” keyboard, while the N110’s keyboard has regular netbook "93 per cent of full size" keyboard layout.

Each keyboard has been coated with an anti-bacterial finish that makes it “almost impossible for bacteria to live and breed” on the keys. So you won’t have to worry so much about eating sandwiches above it.

Big stereo speakers and a sub-woofer built in

Both machines have a 1.3Mp webcam built into their respective lids and also feature a three-in-one memory card reader and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. Three USB ports are included as standard.

The two Samsung laptops will be available in Europe and the US next month, but prices haven’t been announced yet. ®
