Samsung's N150 Netbooks Get New Colors

Samsung N150 CorbyThe N150 netbooks from Samsung quickly rose in popularity after being presented at CES 2010. The netbooks had a really impressive spec sheet. Packing an Intel Atom N450 (1.66GHz, 667MHz, 512KB) processor, Windows 7 Starter Edition, 1GB (DDR2/1GBx1) of memory, a 10.1-inch WSVGA (1024x600) anti-glare LED display, a 250GB SATA 5400RPM hard drive, an Intel GMA 3150 video card, HD audio, 2 stereo 1.5W speakers, microphone, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 2.1 + Enhanced Data Rate, 3 USB 2.0 slots (one with feature charging from PC off), headphone jack, microphone jack, 1 VGA port, 1 RJ45 port, 3-in-1 memory card reader (SD, SDHC, MMC), digital LiveCam webcam and a 6-cell lithium ion battery for up to 8.5 hours of battery life.

While the specs, obviously, are good, one thing the N150s didn't have was an intense visual appeal. Starting off the N150 netbooks came in standard black or white with a small red piping around the body. But Samsung has gone and added a splash of color to the devices. Instead of the plain old colors you can now get the N150 in red, blue, black matte, Bermuda Blue, Caribbean Yellow or Flamingo Pink. The color of the device is primarily on the top of the lid with a matching color stripe around the body of the computer. The borders of the screen as well as the keyboard and borders are white, or black if you get a black N150. In some countries, the N150 has even acquired the Corby brand as seen on Samsung's affordable mobile phones.

According to Vice President of Samsung's Information Technology Division Charles Barlocco, "The design and style are dominant features in the philosophy of Samsung. We wanted to join the technical performance of the N150 with the color, vivacity and style of Corby so you can always stay connected and not pass unnoticed. The Samsung N150 Corby show how attention to detail is a key component for Samsung and how we are always careful to discover new styles and trends and able to bring cutting-edge products."

The only difference to these new N150's is the color. All the specs and hardware is still the same. This seems like a good move for Samsung, especially with all the other companies making brightly colored laptops like Dell and there colorful Inspiron laptops. The colorful versions of the N150 should be going on sale in Italy first for a price of $379. The colorful N150s can also be found on Samsung's website.
