Samsung’s ION-equipped N510 netbook now shipping in US

November 22, 2009 at 10:39 pm

Samsung N510The 11.6-inch Samsung N510 netbook has finally started to ship in the United States. has it listed for $599.99 and offers free shipping. Looking around, it seems to be the first major retailer to stock the Nvidia ION-powered netbook. The Samsung N510-4B (NP-N510-JA02US) only comes in black.

The US model has some material improvements over the European SKU, including Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB RAM and a 250GB HDD. This compares to the European version that comes with XP, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. I’m sure the Windows 7 N510 will hit Europe at some point, although I haven’t seen it listed thus far.

Interestingly, the Newegg listing also says it comes with the ION LE chipset rather than the ION chipset it was expected to have with Windows 7. However, this may just be a typo. The Samsung N510 also features an 11.6” (1366 x 768) matte display, 5900mAh 6-cell battery, HDMI-out, 1.66GHz N280 Atom, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1, a 1.3MP webcam and 3-in-1 card reader.

    Too late to the market. The Asus 1201N with a dual atom 330 and the Ion will be selling $100 cheeper than this netbook.

    It’s been out here in the UK for a while and it hasn’t really took off like the NC10 did…But I think price played a part in it

    Too late indeed… considering the mini 311 has been out for two months now and from personal experience better build quality. Not to mention 311 has DDR3 meaning it has much faster VRAM.

    ohh and for those wondering… ION LE and ION are identical chips. My ION LE is no longer LE.
