The touchscreen, A-Team appliqué and Henry Ford colour scheme aside – you can have the NB30 in black or black – the rest of the NB30 is identical to the N220. So you get Windows 7 Starter, an Atom N450 1.66GHz processor with integrated GMA 3150 graphics, 1GB of RAM upgradeable to 2 from the hatch on the underside, a 10.1in 1024 x 600 screen and the same array of ports and status lights.

You also get 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and two decent sounding 1.5w speakers, but I was a little disappointed to find a blanking plate in place of the Wi-Fi switch that Samsung's press images show on the right hand side of the machine. The 5,900mAh battery managed over 6 hours in a video loop test and should be good for around 8 hours of real world use.
