2009 was the year of the netbook, but these smaller versions of a laptop will not have it all their own way in 2010, these devices will come under increasing pressure from tablet devices. Samsung hopes that they have the answer to keep its netbook market alive, and that is with the NB30 Touch.
The Samsung NB30 is already a very popular netbook, but the Korean consumer electronics company decided to add a touchscreen – seems it is a bit of an Apple iPad wannabe. We do wonder if adding this extra feature will be enough to shift more units of the NB30?
Electronista notes that everything is identical when looking at the specs provided by Notebook Italia, it is just that 10.1-inch touchscreen that is different. You still get the netbook standard Atom N450 processor and 1GB of RAM, as well as a choice of 160GB or 250GB hard drive.
The price for the Samsung NB30 Touch Netbook is €399, that’s €120 more than the non-touchscreen version, the question is – would you pay the extra for this one small feature?
