"Samsung announced a netbook claimed to offer up to 13.8 hours
of battery life. The N230 also offers "Fast Start" technology,
Bluetooth 3.0, a 250GB hard disk drive, a 10.1-inch display, and a
choice of Intel's 1.66GHz Atom N450 or 1.83GHz N470 processors, the
"Samsung's N230 appears to be only a minor update to the N210
and N220 models announced in January. The company did not list
operating system support, although the previous models ended up
shipping only with Windows 7. Still, we figured the netbook
deserved mention for its Bluetooth 3.0 support and exceptional
claimed battery life, and as with just about any Atom-powered
netbook, Windows can be wiped for a netbook-friendly Linux
distribution of one's choice.
"What's more, the N230 ships with a "Fast Start" instant-boot OS
for quick access to the web and other essential functions, and it
is likely the same Linux-based HyperSpace environment used by the
previous models (see farther below)."
