Samsung redesigns netbooks with new software

Along with its X series updates, Samsung at the IFA show launched two new netbook updates. The N130 and N140 have the same rounded aesthetic as the new full-size notebooks and also bring basic productivity apps to a category that normally comes with little software. Both have a stripped-down version of Microsoft Office and streamlined backups to Microsoft's SkyDrive service, which can hold as much as 25GB of data online for free.

Either model has a 10-inch display, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive at their base as well as 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a webcam. The N130 has just a stock 3-cell (standard) or 6-cell (optional) battery and a mono-channel notebook speaker, but the N140 brings higher-capacity batteries as well as stereo speakers.

Black, blue and white versions of the netbooks will ship, but price points and ship dates aren't available.
