The Samsung N230 is built on the Samsung N210 netbook by slimming it down and introducing minor updates in the design by adorning it with brushed metal finish. The ergonomics of the netbook are great with the keyboard is clearly one of the best features. Folks at notebookcheck did a review of the netbook and the review unit they got came with a smaller 3-cell battery. Samsung also sells it with a 6-cell battery version and will surface in US soon.
At 400 dollars, it costs higher than many netbooks currently available, but in this netbook, one is paying for premium quality and strong build. Another thing that makes N230 special is its matte LCD display. Performance-wise, it is same as other netbooks.
