I bought the N120-13GBL after about a month of looking at the various netbooks. From what i could tell, the netbooks are like ice cream ,everyone has a different preference. This netbook is AWESOME!!. I use it for my college classes: writing papers, sufing the web, and even watching YouTube videos on my couch. The battery (mine has the 5900 mAh) lasts about 6-9 hours! I have a Toshiba 15.4" laptop that only lasts about 2 1/2 hours. The keyboard is very good, but keep in mind that it is a little smaller (about 97%) that a normal notebook keyboard, but very usable. The sound is very good, better than my Toshiba 15.4" notebook. The matte finish of the cover makes it easy to grip. The screen is beautiful, I know some people complain about the glossy screen. But, every laptop i have seen or used in the last 4 years has had a glossy screen. So, to me it is a non-issue. I can have several tabs open at the same time and the N120 does not seem to slow down. I even have MS word and the internet browser open at the same time and it seems to go pretty quick. All in all, in most common stuff, it is had to notice the speed difference between this and my dual core laptop. the best part of the Netbook is it portability. I can easily put it in my backpack, and it doesn't weigh it down or hoog up all the room like my 15.4" notebook does. The N120 is a little smaller than a 3 subject spiral notebook, but about 2 twice as wide. Also the weight is terrific. I know it weighs about 2.5 to 3 lbs, but it feels like next to nothing. Especially, when compared to some of my text books! All in all, I would highly recommend the Samsung N120-13GBL netbook. Its light, got a great screen, great keyboard, and incredible battery life!!! It will do most of the stuff that my 15.4" notebook will do. The notebook is getting dusty, since I only use it about 2 twice per week now. I seem to reach for my Blue Samsung more often! The notebook is jealous of the netbook. I know there are some netbook haters out there. if you want a high powered, desktop replacement, portable notebook computer. Buy a $1500+ notebook. Most people just surf the web anyway (web surfing doesn't require a super computer). If you want a small, light, long lasting, portable computer. The Samsung N120 is the ticket. One last note, the difference between the Blue N120 and the Black and White N120's is the battery. The Blue has a higher capacity 5900 mAh (6-9 hours) vs the Black and Whites 5200 mAh (5-7) battery life. You can extend battery life by turning the bluetooth off, this will add about an hour to the battery life.
