"The volume is loud enough to use as your music system around the home"If you're looking for a great budget netbook then look no further than the Samsung NC110, a small machine that packs a lot of punch, the NC110 is light too, at only 1180 grams it's great for quickly packing in your bag and heading off out.
The NC110 is visually appealing too, and Samsung have done a good job with its styling. The keyboard has a nice feel and is quiet when tapping away, the 10.1-inch display is bright and delivers good colour quality and sharpness at a resolution of 1,024x600 pixels, the keyboard keys are nicely spaced out which helps when typing at speed. Being a netbook means it doesn't come with any built in CD or DVD drive or HDMI port, but it does come with a nice big trackpad, 3 USB ports, a 250GB hard drive, an SD card reader, an ethernet jack, a VGA output point and a 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter built in, if you're in urgent need of a CD or DVD drive, then you could purchase an external one, which are reasonably priced these-days. After several test, the NC110 managed to last around 10 and a half hours without a battery re-charge
We have had the NC110 sitting around the Fit4Talent offices for the past few weeks and the ladies in particular liked the NC110, mainly for its small compact size and loading websites quickly.
Often one of the most annoying features of a netbook is the poor volume quality, the same can be said for most laptops too, but this is not the case with the NC110 as the volume is loud enough to use as your music system around the home.
With a speedy Intel Atom N550 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM and Windows 7 installed, the NC110 is fast enough to surf the net without sitting around waiting for sites to load, it also plays music and video at a decent speed too, just don't expect it to handle memory hungry games or software as you will be disappointed.
Overall, if you're looking for a netbook to surf the net, pickup email, write documents and enjoy music and videos, then the NC110 is perfect and will suit your needs nicely, and as long as you don't quite need the power of a fully featured laptop and are not worried about having a built in CDDVD drive (of which the NC110 does not), then the NC110 could quite easily replace that chunky laptop.
