Samsung announces two new netbooks

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on April 24th, 2009

samsungn120-sbNetbook sales are booming as consumers buy the low cost machines in droves. The only real issue that goes along with using a netbook rather than a full notebook is that the keyboards tend to be smaller on netbooks and the machines lack the power that full notebooks have.

Samsung has announced a pair of new netbooks called the N110 and the N120. The two machines share some of the same features including an Intel Atom N270 CPU running at 1.6GHz, Windows XP Home, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LED backlit LCD, and a 160GB HDD.

samsung-logo-sbWhen it comes to life on the road with a notebook one day, you will probably drop your precious computer. If you travel a lot it may be that someone else drops your computer for you.

Samsung has announced a new hard drive series called the Spinpoint M7. The drive is available in 250, 320, 400, and 500GB capacities. All of the models use a new controller that promises power savings of up to 25% compared to conventional 2.5-inch drives.
