Samsung = :thumbsup: Colour = :thumbsup: Price = :thumbsup: ...

Why so cheap ? Seems to good to be true ? :?
#6
dire spec, that's why, lol
#7
Yah, very nice spces mate. heat added.
#8
Not my colour but a good deal. :D
#9
Isn't this almost the same spec as the £150 (Asda) Acer that was on here the other day?
I do love the look of the Samsung it's quite nice but the price doesn't seem very competetive. Practically laptop money :-/
#10
I'm voting Cold - seems expensive for a netbook.

Samsung NC10 have 5 to 6 hours of battery life and are fantastic pieces of kit, you pay more for the quality. £15 for a 2GB stick of ram, and you can get a popular fruit based OS to run on it to (with some slight mods)

Hot.

I would advise visiting a high street store & looking/feeling/using an NC10 before you buy one.

I didn't. But it was a gift for one of my kids at Christmas, so I don't use it that much anyway.

The left mouse button, I find, is incredibly difficult to depress accurately. It may just be the physical hardware we have [I perhaps should test this against another in a store], but it is certainly not only me with the operational issue. My partner finds the same problem with the mouse button. We are both used to working on full-sized laptops.

Also, the thought of having a small screen seems good on paper (web site) but when actually using one the amount of stuff you can get on the screen is less than you would imagine.

A smaller sized laptop, rather than a netbook, with a 13.3-inch screen may have been a more suitable option.

BFN,

Samsung customer service is terrible, has made me vow never to use them again after they punished me for changing the screen on my £600 samsung q210 by scratching the hell out of the casing and keyboard and then refusing to reply to any requests to address it. They really are very poor.
#15
WHY?! When you can get a decent spec laptop for the same price? faster, more memory, built for Vista, better for games, proper 14 " plus screen and associated res, proper keyboard, etc. WHY?!

I respect netbooks at maybe sub £200, but not at this price point.

Because its about half the size of a 14" laptop?

If what you are saying is true, why did people bother shelling out £2000+ for an ultraportable when netbooks weren't around?
#17
Because they were stupid.

Ultraportables @ £2000. Like they were real popular right? :roll: Ultras were a great outlet for commodity pc manufacturers (btw that's virtually all laptop manufacturers), to derive increased margins from the consumer.

Don't get me wrong, netbooks are a good idea and have there place, but at £300+ they cease to make commercial sense, and again manufacturers like Samsung will latch onto any opportunity to drive increased margins.
#19
Sorry voted cold!

It has pretty much the same specs as the Aspire One from Asda, even though the Samsung has a better battery life you can easily upgrade the battery on it with a 6 cell (6-7 hours) battery for less than £50 which still makes it a better deal than this.

The point is, that even at that price, there were people out there willing to pay for portability. I can't believe people go: "oh look, its £300 when for that price you could get one with a bigger screen, and also has a better CPU."
The whole point of the netbook IS the small screen and power efficient (and thus less powerful) CPU. That's why people buy them. For the same reason you wouldn't buy an iphone which had twice the screen size and half the battery life, because one of the attractions of an iphone is portability. :roll:

Worth considering the MSI Netbook below, comes out trumps in most reviews and available at a lower price:

I have a nc10 and its possible the best investment ive made, Im studying at universtiy and have an hour train journey each way which i used to do nothing productive on, now i can actually get some work done and give me more time to myself when i get home. The battery life is amazing and is the main feature of this.

I dont want a faster machine or a bigger screen that would just kill my battery life and i want something that fits in my backpack to travel with. I see friends having to being in seperat cases as thier laptops wont fit in and they have to mess about trying to find plug sockets as the batterys give up the ghost so quickly.

The money paid for this is well spent in my opinion, other people may not be able to justify the price tag based upon thier usage but it meets my needs and im more than happy to pay the money for it. Just like you see hardcore gamers shelling out '000's for graphics cards/components so they can run it at a slightly higher resolution witha few more frps. Doesnt mean its a waste of money its what they want and if they feel its good value then its a good product.

What happened to this site being a site to give others a heads up on some good deals. £282 is a good deal for a NC10 especially a new colour which is going to be in high demand, i challenge you to find a better price. Just because its not the cheapest in the market doesnt make it a bad deal :x

maybe more expensive but acer builds dont last .


exactly you get what you pay for. My nc10 feels solid well built. It gets banged about in my backpack every day and never had a problem

Exactly its fits its purpose very well, but for those wanting a bigger screen etc that is what the NC20 is coming out for. being a good deal doesnt mean you get the biggest screen and biggest processor with the biggest hdd for your money.

I bought an NC10 in November for £285, and I'm really pleased with it.

The Acer Aspire One for £150 that people seem to be comparing this to, is 8.9" screen, 120gb hard drive, Linux operating system and 512mb of RAM.

That's quite different to 10" screen, 160gb hard drive, Windows operating system and 1GB of RAM. And it has a six cell battery.

Acer's build quality is quite questionable compared to Samsung too.

So in my opinion, the extra £136 is more than worth it for this Samsung.

You certainly won't get a particularly good 'normal 14" laptop' for £280 ish, either. Unless you want a refurbished Advent or Ei Sytems one from Currys anyway.

buying a 6 cell battery is a bad idea for the likes of the aspire and wind as they are not designed to house them and the result is they have a J-Lo ass where they stick out the back and can often cause the screen to not open fully. If you want a long lasting netbook pay the little extra and get one which is actually designed to house that type of battery

Here are a few reasons why:

[LIST=1]
[*]Smaller
[*]Weighs less
[*]It doesn't have Vista on it
[*]Uses less power
[*]Battery life around six hours (which laptops can boast that out of the box?)
[*]Looks better than most cheap laptops

The Acer is no longer available and had a smaller screen, smaller amount of RAM, smaller hard drive, smaller battery, worse keyboard and this has Windows XP with it. XP alone is going to cost you £50 so voting cold is utterly ridiculous.

Superb laptop at the cheapest price I've seen it in any colour in the past couple of months. Good spot, Voted Hot.

Amazon's price for the other colours jumps up and down on a daily basis so keep checking if you're not a fan of the pink.

Is this one identical to the nc10's in blue, black and white but just with a pink case?

If so, I'm in...

Yep, it sure is! This is going to be a hellava hit with the girls!

Can someone tell me will this wirelessley connect to my internet router? (Does it have intregrated wireless card?)

And can anyone tell me does this work slow with games?
#32
I own both the nc10 and an aspire one. The samsung is the better machine no doubt, usable screen size, more ram and harddrive, XP included,bluetooth, better battery life while remaining portable, and definitely better build quality.

Whether these benefits are worth £130 more compared to the £150 asda machine is up to you to decide.

is it wireless? And with the really cheap amazon price - the fact that they are for pre order - When they are ready to dispatch do you think Amazon will up the price or do they have to honour the price at the time of pre order? :?

Yes it is wireless.

It, like all netbooks isn't really intended for gaming though. I wouldn't try crysis on it. :thumbsup:

Pish - I have an acer with a six cell and tbh it really doesn't bother me - in actually makes a nice carry handle for it :) The screen goes back almost all the way (beyond being useful actually) in reality btw. The NC10 is a good netbook but it's premium wasn't worth it for me.
#36
The Samsung'll have Wireless (most likely only b/g, I think the EEE 1000 is the only one with Wireless N).
Amazon have always honoured their prices as far as I can remember.

For discussion on which games WILL work, please go here: http://www.sammynetbook.com/plugins/forum/forum_viewforum.php?7

You should theoretically be alright with anything released up to 2003/4, apart from those which have a problem with the 1024x600 resolution (PoP: Sands of Time for example, from what I hear).

Ordered my Blue one of Dixons the other day, so have been doing some research ;).
Yet to arrive though, but have searched far and wide and it seems to be the best.

Every netbook ever made has a wireless card. What would be the point of making a portable internet device that can't connect to the internet unless tethered to a wire? :whistling:

So you reckon if i installed The Sims & all 8 add ons then this could run quite slow ? lol

I have looked at quite a few laptops in the past and been about to buy and then realised they were not wireless. It was only a question. No need for the rudeness ! :?

Why is it ridiculous? I've got a geniune copy of windows, the acer came with a 160gig HD (check your facts before you post), I've already upgraded an extra gig of ram on it for a tenner and the smaller screen makes it more portable.
