Is it an ultra mobile computer - or a high fashion accessory? With an exclusive designer look and power packed performance the Samsung netbook NS310 is both! Its smooth and elegantly rounded casing makes a real impact with a choice of vivid blue and red wine high gloss finishes that simply demand attention. The premium finish continues on the inside, where a flat window display seamlessly delivers an enhanced viewing experience - especially as its 300nit brightness is 50% brighter than conventional displays and provides crisp images and exceptional color clarity when viewing movies or pictures.
