    14 hours battery life is great. Been impressed with Samsungs offerings so far in the netbook area, and this might just be what tempts me to buy when we're off camping. Would have to have the 250gb hard drive though, as storage from my camera etc. would be a main use...

    I really which reviewers would not do this, saying something has "blah" battery life, with an extended OPTIONAL battery. You know what i bet it would be even better if you carried a car battery and DC-DC converter! Reviews should be done as the kit is supplied the majority of users will never buy a different battery. Also that has to be the worse laptop picture I have seen, atleast use one where you can see the keyboard/screen so you have some idea of what it is like...

    that's impressive - but the location of the Samsung logo really annoys me, havent they heard of symmetry?

    Re: News - Samsung N230 launches with almost 14 hours of battery life

    It's not a review, it's a news item. As such, it's not really up to Hexus what pictures they use and what figures they report on - they're simply publishing a story based on the press release.

    I suspect that most etailers will carry a version equipped with the larger battery - they certainly have for other netbooks (which requires an annoyingly careful attention to detail when checking the specs!). And it's perfectly reasonable for manufacturers to put these kinds of details into their press releases if they're going to supply the larger batteries to retailers. I'm sure that if Hexus get one in the labs they'll put that claim to the test...

    I'm interested in Netbooks with 12V PSUs - the you can run of a car battery or solar panel really easily for camping !

    Except when the engine cranks or revs and the voltage shoots up and down You can get DC-DC regulated converters if you want to run off car batteries etc.

    Is it really that good though, i mean I already own a laptop why would I want a smaller computer? lol, maybe they have a purpose to me, but maybe not £300 worth.
