I've been deciding for ages about which netbook to get and was finally settled on the MSI Wind U100 when I saw this Samsung.
They look very similar, both are upgradeable to 2GB RAM I assume.
They both have 1.66GHz processor but one uses the N280 whilst the other the N450. Which of these is better? I'm guessing one is on a newer chipset or something?
Also, is it worth waiting until the MSI Wind U135 or even the U160 to come out in the UK? Or is it likely that they won't be released in the UK for quite some time!
Some advice on this decision would be really appreciated
You're right, the N450 is almost identical in CPU speed, but has a newer, more streamlined chipset. The N450 will use less power overall, giving a longer typical battery life. The N450's integrated video is also somewhat better, although don't expect miracles from it, its still just an intel IGP.
Personally laptops are something that I like to actually see before buying, I haven't seen it for sale locally so I can't voice much of an opinion on that. Spec-wise its nearly identical to every other n450 netbook, though the advertised battery life is less than what ASUS claims for their models. The design looks decent enough from the pictures, but hard to say without seeing it.
What's the N110? Hadn't heard of that one. Oh I see. That has the N270 processor and these are just upgrade to that. I guess I just need to decide between the N210 and the N150 then. They're identical in hardware, just look different
