Samsung N350 dual-core netbook
Slimmer, faster and - ahem - pricier...
The price is right?
In the end, I can’t help but think back fondly to the N230 I reviewed last year. It too had a £349 price tag, but its super-long battery life helped it pick up a decent score. However, despite being less than six months old, the N230 appears to have already been put out to pasture. At the time of writing, I couldn’t find it on sale anywhere. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that Samsung reckons its customers will happily sacrifice a whole chunk of battery life for a miniscule boost in performance.
No glossy display for the N350
Small, well-designed and comfortable to use, the N350 could have been a great little netbook. However, the relatively poor battery life and minimal performance boost offered by the dual-core Atom make its high price somewhat unpalatable. ®
