One of the joys of mobile computing on a netbook is the long battery life. When I bought my NC10 I was rather impressed with the 4-5 hours that it gave me but now it seems that the newest model on the block is going to offer a whole lot more.
N230 Battery Power
The Samsung N230 will be available with a 66Wh battery that comes with a 13.8 hour battery life claim. Of course real world computing might not reflect this but rest assured this is a competition beating run time!
This new model might not have presented any processing advances but the increase in battery life is going to appeal to many potential buyers.
Multiple Versions of the N230?
The exact packaging of this new model isn’t exactly clear, but it seems that there will be at least two versions to look out for:
1.66GHz N450 vs the very slightly quicker 1.83GHz N470 processor160GB HD vs 250GB66Wh battery (13hrs).
