Manufacturer’s Description

The Samsung N150 netbook gives you value without compromise. The non-glare 10.1-inch screen gives you plenty of room, while a 3-in-1 memory card slot and 3 USB 2.0 ports make it easy to connect a digital camera, printer and more. At a scant 2.7 lbs, you can pick up and go at a moment?s notice, and the battery (up to 7 hours) is good for all day.
