Samsung intros new N130 & N140 netbooks; now shipping in UK

September 3, 2009 at 1:01 pm


Samsung N130Samsung has officially announced two new entries to its ‘N’ netbook series. Both 10.1-inch models have very similar in specifications and looks. The official product page for the N130 & N140 is now live on the Samsung UK website. The manuals for both are also available (N130 here and N140 here).

The UK SKUs are both powered by the 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor and 945GSE chipset, and come with 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. They have 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) matte displays and feature Wi-Fi (including Draft-N), webcam, 3-in-1 card reader, three USB ports and 6-cell batteries.

The N140 is the premium model and offers Bluetooth 2.1, stereo 1.5W speakers with SRS audio (the N130 only offers a mono speaker) and a higher capacity 6-cell battery. The N130 should last for around 7.5 hours, whilst the N140 is expected to last for 11 hours.

The hardware itself isn’t that inspiring but this is represented by their respective price points. Both models are already shipping through the DSG chains (Dixons, Currys & PC World). The Samsung N130 is on sale for £279.99, whilst the Samsung N140 will set you back £329.99. Both are available in black or white and are shipping as we speak.

Update: Sascha from NetbookNews has a hands-on video of both devices below.

    So in affect, are these models replacing the NC10 and N110?

    Can’t exactly work this one out

    The NC10 will (gradually) get phased out. These new models will accompany the N110 and N120.

    Seems a strange decision to me as there’s little differentiation.

    The NC10 goes since it got tweaked to N110 .. if you recall Amazon US sold the ‘bettered’ version of NC10 when there was no N110 and after a few weeks the N110 appeared as the good version. So it stays (alongwith N120) .. and now the wonderful addition of N140 .. So its NC10 > N110 > N140 – the best’est’ NC10. I really liked two things about the N140 apart from the obvious battery life: ONE – Non Glossy Display and TWO: The superb colour options. I would go in for either the dark violet OR the dark red. Samsung somehow manages to get the pulse of the market and delivers. Good going Uncle Sammy :-)

    I just watched the video again .. and the N130 apparently has a N280 and not N270, Win 7 starter edition installed .. This should bring the price to a level with N140, its yuppier version. I also liked the Non Gloss Lid on the N140 – call it anti smudge.

    Looks like the N140 has a much better sound then the N110 I have (3W output speakers instead of 1W). I like the N110 but the volume is just too low to listen to music or video’s. I have bought USB power speakers to boost the sound, but this means carrying more junk around.
