Overview

The Samsung N310 was built with style in mind. Right from the first announcements opinion has been split on the looks of this Samsung Netbook. One thing is for sure, it is a unique model that doesn't compare directly to anything else on the market. Although the N310 has been reasonably well received, the strongest criticism is that the Samsung N110 netbook offers better value in a more traditional package. However if you are looking for a netbook that makes a statement and will be noticed in your school lectures or in the local coffee shop then the N310 is definitely not a bad choice.

The N310 was released in America in July 2009 re-branded as the Samsung Go.
