Top three mobile application threats

Since the N110 lacks what we would call a killer advantage over the NC10, its success or otherwise is going to come down to the sordid matter of coin. The cheapest we found the N110 for was a penny under £350 making it forty quid more expensive than the NC10’s typical street price.

Sibling rivalry: different, but not that different

So is it worth the extra? No, not really. Yes, the battery will give you an extra half an hour running time. Yes, the glossy screen is better for watching video – though many will prefer the NC10’s matte screen. Yes, there are some other minor improvements, such as the more powerful speakers, larger touchpad and rather more attractive design. Yet, none of these are really reason enough to cough up the extra cash let alone upgrade if you already own an NC10.

Verdict

Taken on its own merits the N110 is a very appealing machine. The problem is that the differences, such as they are, don't really justify the price hike over the NC10. With Samsung launching several variations on the netbook theme recently, it should just have bitten the bullet and priced the N110 as a direct replacement for the NC10 rather than as a putative improvement. ®

A reasonable warming over of the NC10, but not really worth the extra cash.
