Samsung N210The Samsung N210 is one the company’s premium Pine Trail netbooks. The 10-inch (1024 x 600) netbook is similar to the N220 but lacks the subwoofer, two-tone lid and the Broadcom Crystal HD media accelerator (only in UK machines).

Brad from Liliputing has unboxed the Samsung N210 and seemed to like the fingerprint-proof lid design, despite the glossy finish. It also comes with a chiclet keyboard and matte display. The touchpad looks similar as those used in older models. Check out the unboxing video after the jump. Read more

Samsung N210 netbook reviewed – keyboard lives up to pedigree

February 23, 2010 at 8:42 am

Samsung N210The Samsung N210 netbook has seen its first review courtesy of Matt from The netbook is one of four Pine Trail netbooks from Samsung. Whilst the specs don’t stand out (N450 Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter), you do get Samsung’s fabled build quality, comfortable chiclet keyboard and an 11-hour battery life.

We struggled to tell how the N210 differed from the N220 at first, but we now we know the N220 has a two-tone lid (red/black and green/black) as well as an integrated subwoofer, which accounts for the small price premium. Matt liked the non-glossy display and large multitouch trackpad. He didn’t formally test the 6-cell 5900 mAh battery but found that the quoted 11 hour runtime was probably a “fair estimation.” Click here for the full review.
