    I'm looking for a little 10-inch laptop for schoolwork and browsing, not gaming or anything intense like that.
    Looking for what recommended minimum specs I should be on the lookout for.

    I'm considering this little Samsung 10.1" Netbook featuring Intel Atom N455 Processor (N145)

    My local pc folks are selling it for $330 CAD tax included, including $73 upgrade from 1G ram to 4G.
    Good price?

    I'd rather buy from a local store than purchase online, if not for reliability of purchase and continued support options.

    If you just using it for normal browsing and school work, the samsung 10.1" would be perfect.
