The Samsung N120 netbook started to ship over the last week both in the US and UK markets. The first units are now just starting to hit the hands of consumers and first impressions are starting to appear. SammyNetbook has some owner feedback from user Otacorb. He also owns as Samsung NC10 Special Edition and gives a detailed comparison between the two.
The N120 is around half an inch thicker to account for that full sized keyboard and comes with a glossy display. He says whilst he would have preferred a matte display, the N120 is not as glossy as the Aspire One. The case also has a matte finish which means much less fingerprints. He seems to be pleased with his purchase, mainly due to a very good keyboard and battery life.
The Samsung N120 is one of the first netbooks to feature a full sized keyboard into a 10-inch netbook. Samsung is also touting the 2.1 speaker system found in the N120. The netbook is powered by a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU and 945GSE chipset. It will come with 1GB RAM and a 160GB (5,400 RPM) hard-disk drive.
