More expensive than a single core N450 or older N270 but quite a bit quicker.

A benchmark here comparing the Atom N550 with some other Atoms and ULV SU3300.

Also has the 6 cell battery with claimed 10 hour life.

I have this netbook. I paid £250 for the blue version a few months ago, so this is holding its price well.

It's a solid netbook, but I wouldn't expect much else from Samsung - I've always liked their hardware.

I haven't tested it, but I doubt the battery life is 10 hours during normal use - probably more like 5 - 7? But that's still excellent, especially considering every laptop manufacturer overstates their battery life.

The 6 cell battery is designed to fit into the body of the laptop very well, so unlike 6 cell batteries on other laptops it doesn't jut out.

hmmmm tempted. Just had an Asus netbook with the Atom 450 before and it was sooooo slow. In the end gave it back (for some other reason but was happy to get rid of it). Will this really be faster? And what would be a suitable memory for an upgrade to 2GB?

Voted hot in any case as the price is decent.
