LaptopMag has reviewed the recently released 10.1-inch Samsung Go netbook that is also known as the Samsung N310. The Go provides a larger capacity 6-cell (8850mAh) battery that provides enough juice for up to 8.5 hours of operation time. It is almost 30-minutes less than the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA, or an hour less than the Toshiba NB205. The price starts at $450, which is around $100 more than the high-end ASUS Eee PC 1005HA. Here is a verdict.
With the Go, Samsung has created one of the more attractive 10-inch netbooks on the market. Its compact build and peppy performance will provide the fashion-conscious a well-rounded package. However, its $449 price gives us pause. You can snatch up the Editors’ Choice-winning Toshiba mini NB205, which provides a larger touchpad and even better endurance, for $50 less. And for $50 more you can pick up the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 (retailing for $499), which has a larger 12-inch display but less endurance. Still, if a combo of style and a long runtime is at the top of your mobile computing list, the Samsung Go is worth the splurge.
