Samsung NB30 Touch reviewed – good multitouch performance

Samsung NB30 TouchThe Samsung NB30 Touch was officially launched in Italy yesterday. It is similar in most respects to the rugged NB30 netbook but comes with a 10-inch touchscreen display. GeekNews have reviewed a pre-production NB30 Touch already and liked what they saw.

It’s nice to see the netbook sport a matte display, that should hopefully make fingerprint marks less of an issue compared to a glossy touchscreen. It’s also worth noting that it comes with a multitouch capacitive display, something we weren’t sure of on its official announcement.

Samsung NB30 Touch netbook a reality

Samsung NB30 TouchRumours surfaced a while back over a touchscreen enabled version of the rugged Samsung NB30 netbook. Well it looks like this model has seen its official launch in Italy. The Samsung NB30 Touch (NB30-JT01IT) is the same in all other respects compared to the original NB30 and costs €399.

The NB30 Touch only comes with Windows 7 Starter, so you won’t benefit from the full touch experience you get with W7HP. The type of touchscreen (resistive/capacitive) is also not mentioned, although I expect it’s the former. Other features remain including its rubberised chassis, hard-disk protection and an anti-spill keyboard. Click through for the specs. Read more
