Product Description

A rough day on your netbook can lead to a rough day on you. It can go easier on both of you with a Samsung NB30-JP02 netbook. Featuring a free-fall sensor, the NB30-JP02 can help keep your data safe if you accidentally drop it as you're fumbling with your keys and your coffee. The sensor detects if the drive is in a free fall, and instantly moves the read/write heads away from the disk, protecting the disk from scratches and keeping your valuable data safe. The exterior is protected, too, with a scratch-resistant, texturized matte black finish, to keep you looking stylish miles down the road. Inside, the Intel Atom N450 processor and genuine Windows 7 Starter OS speed you through your favorite programs. The matte 10.1" screen gives you plenty of room to work, edit photos and IM. Your digital life is accommodated nicely with a 4-in-1 memory card slot and 3 USB 2.0 ports that make it easy to connect a digital camera, printer and more. A convenient gesture user-interface lets you scroll, pinch-zoom in/out, and rotate via touchpad. And with up to 9 hours of battery life, you and your Samsung NB30-JP02 netbook keep going all day long

Customer Reviews

The NB30 has great sound quality.
Cynthia Yeh
I was a little skeptical of the Starter OS, but this laptop has done everything I had hoped it would.
I love the keyboard as it well sized and seems to take a beating well.

I originally bought a Samsung ivory colored netbook from the store about a year ago. I can't recall the model but something similar to this one. But within a day I spilled a couple teaspoons of water into it and the key started malfunctioning. I also didn't like that other model because it came with this odd program that was really a nuisance as well I think it was called Hyper-something. (Sorry if some of the details are fuzzy! Bought it a year ago and only had that other netbook less than week.) I quickly returned it and did some more research and found this the Samsung NB30. It is shock resistant up to 30 inches and also water resistant up to something like 30cc as long as you wipe the liquid away immediately.

I LOVE it. I have had it almost a year and it has been great. No major problems. And I have definitely dropped it and man-handled it a bit. It is also so light and easy to use. One of the things I especially like about it coming from having previously owned two Dell notebooks and two Acer notebooks is the screen and the speakers. On my old notebooks they all had a terrible problem with glare and I hated that. In addition, the most recent Dell notebook I owned had the worst speakers. I could barely hear my music playing unless I used headphones. My cell phone speakers were louder than the Dell! The NB30 has great sound quality. And it comes with Windows 7 which is miracle compared to Windows Vista. It also has an SD slot which has been useful and three USB slots.

So one of the drawback is because this model is shock resistant for some reason the battery life is slightly less than other comparable models of Samsung maybe 6.5 hours versus 7 hours.

I got my Samsung nb30-jp02 about a month ago as an alternative to lugging my macBook around and have put it through the paces in that time with awesome results. As a full-time student I ask a lot from my lappys and this little guy has not disappointed. Structurally it is extremely light but solid with a good balanced feel and exhibits all the qualities that I have come to expect from all the Samsung products I currently own, as well as those I've owned in the past. I love the keyboard as it well sized and seems to take a beating well. Again, full-time student = LOTS of typing and multiple windows/programs running. Touch pad is responsive and well designed, though small (invest in a wireless mouse) The screen is bright and does well in diverse light conditions due to the matte screen. All the i/o, USB and DVI ports feel solid with the one exception being the power adaptor input which, while good and tight, seems a little vulnerable to torque at off angles and could be a problem if stepped on (as with any input) or if subjected to constant pull (stretched power cord, falling, etc.). The ventilation achieved by the tall battery and generous venting ports in the case is excellent and overheating is not even a concern (outside of leaving the machine running while in a bag/sleeve, which you should never do anyway). Couple things to the people shopping around: Spend the $25 on the 2gig ddr2 RAM upgrade (worth it!) and expect to have to remove some of the bloat-ware if you want to run the Windows 7 Starter (would suggest Windows XP but 7 has not been as bad as I expected so far). After some software clean-up and reorganization, the machine runs great for only having an ATOM processor! You won't be able to view HD video very well, but you don't have the screen resolution to do that properly anyways.Read more ›

The other reviews are right, it is a fine little computer for a good price.


I've worked on quite a few laptops and netbooks in my day, and this one takes the cake for having the most garbage pre-installed. I understand, Samsung, that this is how you keep the prices down. You get money from Norton and all the other devs so that you can sell the hardware for crazy-low prices. I get it...but you're going too far. Cleaning this thing off is taking up far too much of my life.
Some of the garbage you'll find on the NB30:
BatteryLife Extender
Easy Network Manager
Bonbon Quest
Norton Internet Security
Daycare Nightmare
Easy Content Share
Easy Display Manager
Easy Resolution Manager
Easy SpeedUp Manager
Easy Battery Manager
Easy File Share
Fast Booting SW
Flip Words
Game Pack (one of 3)
Gem Shop
Google Toolbar
Insaniquarium Deluxe
Mahjong Escape
Microsoft Choice Guard
MS Office 2010 trial
MS SQL Server 2005 Compact (yeah, I need that on my netbook)
Norton Online Backup
Samsung Recovery Solution 4
Samsung Support Center
Samsung Update Plus
Skype Toolbars
four Windows Live applications I don't want
...and this is just what I have left to uninstall. I already got rid of at least 6 applications before I got annoyed enough to write this review.
For those of you who want to manually clean this stuff off, you have a few options:
PC Decrapifier (google it) is decent but sometimes buggy
windows uninstaller works fine but often leaves stuff behind
Revo Uninstaller (google it) is my favorite way to go as it really gets rid of all the cruft these crappy apps leave behind.
