The main highlighted feature of the Samsung NC215 netbook is its solar panel that's designed on the lid cover. This can be used to charge the system. Another advantage is that the unit need not be switched on in order to charge it. The system can be recharged in switch off mode.
The eco mode is an added advantage of the new Samsung NC215. The manufacturers have focused more in giving an efficient power management in the system. The Eco made enabled is a best example to support this claim. The Eco mode is basically the listing of four separate energy conservation level modes starting with nature conservation, energy saving, work nature balanced and a user controlled option named user customization mode. The nature conservation mode consumes the least power and thus helps in saving a lot of energy. The device has an efficient monitoring system to carefully analyze and maintain the power consumed via the solar panel.
The solar power generated at a given time and even the carbon emissions from the device can be reviewed by the user and thus keeping a track on the impacts they create on the environment. New Samsung net books will find its best use in markets where continuous electricity supply is a real problem and still requires the assistance of similar computing gadgets.
The Samsung NC215 sports a 1.66GHz Atom processor that eases intense workloads. The system however will not sport effective support for the most current games and is a let down for those who go searching for a multi tasking. Graphical configuration is one among the best that's yet been introduced in an entry level Netbook, which is an Intel GMA3150. It has three USB 3.0 ports and a quality web cam. The absence of a CD/DVD drive is the major drawback.
The Samsung NC215 is available with a price in India tag of Rs. 17,900 in India.
