Another week, another small, lightweight and affordable laptop comes tearing out of the traps. The Samsung N310 sports a 10.1-inch screen and "large size" keyboard but weighs just 1.23kg and has a battery that keeps on rockin' for up to five hours.

Samsung has drafted in Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa to style the N310, and this collaboration has resulted in a curvy, cutesy shape as well as, according to Samsung, a casing that boasts "amazing strength and superior reliability".

The processor is an Intel Atom and Windows XP Home comes as standard, but Samsung hasn't revealed many of the tech specs just yet. On the feature front there's a 1.3-megapixel webcam built in, as well as a 3-in-1 memory card reader, three USB ports and optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

No price details just yet, but the N310 will be on sale in May.
