Dec 20, 2011

Samsung netbooks are ultra-light, ultra-affordable, and easy to carry. Samsung notebooks are full-sized and full-performance. Here's what you’ll need to know to make savviest savvy and cost-effective choice.

Light vs. Ultralight

Both styles of Samsung PCs are designed for easy travel, yet there's a notable difference between the lighter- Samsung netbooks and the more substantial Samsung notebooks.

Samsung Netbooks

Samsung netbooks are all about computing on the move. Weighing less than 2 kilograms, with screens that are 12 inches or smaller, a Samsung netbook can be tossed easily into a backpack or purse, or even carried comfortably in one hand. If you lug your machine around all day long, that's a major consideration.

Samsung netbooks are leaner, and better suited to web-based usage* as compared to Samsung notebooks, as they rarely have a CD or DVD drive. Their processors make them efficient and are designed to run fewer programmes simultaneously.

If you have a web-driven lifestyle, such as blogging for work or pleasure, netbooks are a sleek way to go. If an ultra-light machine can handle your needs, it's definitely a great choice.

With a weight just over 2 kilograms, Samsung notebooks are built with the heft to edit large video files, create graphics, or manage large music libraries.

The larger hard drive of a Samsung notebook delivers power and speed, capable of storing huge amounts of content while easily running multiple data-heavy programmes. If your priority is strength over convenience, then Samsung notebooks are a great choice.
