Samsung intros long-life mini-laptop

Netbook plus?

The essential guide to IT transformation

Want a netbook that will run for (almost) up to 14 hours? That's what Samsung is promising its new 10in N230 can deliver.

You'll have to buy the version with the 66Wh battery, mind - there's also a 32Wh version that runs for a more standard seven hours.

Samsung N230

Other choices include a 1.66GHz Atom N450 CPU or a 1.83GHz N470 - the latter, knocking the battery back a tad, we suspect, thanks to its 6.5W TDP; the N450 is rated at 5.5W - and a pick of 160GB or 250GB 5400rpm Sata HDDs.

All of them contain 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 - plus all the usual netbook features: webcam, Ethernet, 10.1in, 1024 x 600 display and Intel integrated graphics.

The bigger battery bulks up the N230 at bit: 34mm at its thickest point, compared to 23mm for the 32Wh model. They weigh 1.18kg and 1.03kg, respectively.

All the variants - which may not be available in all territories - will be out on 28 June. ®
