Samsung intros premium N210, N220 netbooksBy Matthew DeCarlo
Samsung has introduced a revamped editions of its N210 and N220 netbooks, adding a fresh coat of paint and heartier internals. Both feature a 10.1-inch 1024x600 LED-backlit display, an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a chiclet keyboard, a 0.3MP webcam, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and VGA connectivity, as well as one USB port with Sleep'n'Charge.
The N210 Plus Crystal has a smaller 250GB hard drive and boasts up to 14 hours of battery life, while the N220 Plus Premium totes 320GB of storage and maxes out at around 11 hours. Blogeee reports that the new N220 has a matte keyboard, but the rest of the exterior is glossy, which should prevent the most-touched surfaces from becoming grimy. We imagine the N210 has received the same treatment.
The systems will run some form of Windows 7, presumably Starter or Home Premium, and pricing is expected to be in the range of €350 to €400. Availability is unknown.
