New Samsung Netbooks; Up to 11-hr Battery Life

Samsung unveiled two new netbooks today, the N110 and N310, both of which feature 10-inch displays and great battery life.

Up first, we have the Samsung N110, which takes on a professional appearance with a glossy black lid and a touch of red around around the netbook's border.  Professionals will especially appreciate the N110 for the included 10.2-inch matte display with 1024 x 600 resolution, the 6-cell battery that is capable of over 7-hours of battery life and the spacious 93-percent full-size keyboard. Other features of the N110 include an Intel Atom N270 1.6 Ghz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB HDD, Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics, 802.11g WiFi, Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and Windows XP Home.

The Samsung N110 weighs in at 2.8-pounds, has a thickness of 1.2-inches and will be available at e-retailers the first week of April for $469. For further information on the Samsung N110, Laptopmag.com has a full review of the new netbook available here.

As for the new Samsung N310, its design seems to be more playful and stylish compared to the N110. The system comes in a choice of colors, includes a 93-percent full-size chiclet keyboard and has what can be described as pebble smooth curves. As for system specifications, the N310 comes with a glossy 10.1-inch display with 1024 x 600 resolution, an Intel Atom N270 processor, Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics, 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB HDD, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and a 3-in-1 card reader.  As for connectivity options, the system includes Bluetooth, HSDPA, 802.11g WiFi and WiMax, although it is a bit unclear if the WiMax and HSDPA will be optional or not.

The Samsung N310 has a weight of 2.7-pounds, a thickness of 1.1-inches and comes with a 4-cell battery rated for 5-hours of battery life.  For serious mobile users however, there will be an extended battery option that increases the battery life up to a claimed 11-hours. The Samsung N310 will be available globally in the next couple months with a price of £399 ($580).
