I think you're mistaken when it comes to the graphics.

Other than that it looks like another average netbook that offers nothing different. I wonder when the dual core Atoms will be on the market.
#2
It has an Integrated 1.3 Mega Pixel camera as well
#3
1000H has a 1.3 camera aswell, also integrated mic, 2 YEARS WARRENTY! If you need more than 80GB of hdd, then I think a netbook aint what ya need...
#4
Short warranty, glossy screen, no SSD, although it does have a six cell battery. From the specs it doesn't seem anything special for this price. And it's Samsung so it's probably made of some naff plastic.

Non-gloss screen.

Seems like a good alternative to the eee 1000H. 80GB extra hard disk space vs 12 months extra warranty makes it a very close thing. Cheapest 1000H is around £10 more expensive than this, but eee is the market leader and has plenty of enthusiast support. Hot from me (and I bought an eee yesterday:)).

+1 Damn right. They should be bloody cheap in the Uk as well!

TBH of the 8.9" versions the Acer One is the best for price/usability.

And for 10.2" Samsung or EEE 1000H. I'm leaning towards this samsung!!!!!

I think that cheapest Acer One is £217 with 512MB + 120GB + 3 cell + Linux + 8"9 + 1 year warranty at Amazone. If you intend to upgrade battery for One, the price should be around £68 for 6 cell, so EEE 1000H or Samsung NC10 is still worth to deal

I recommend to purchase from somewhere else. BT.Shop and Dabs.com is the same company and has the same problems: web only, NO TELEPHONE CONTACT when things go wrong. I would not touch either with a barge-pole. I had to reclaim my money through my credit card company, so make sure you have this protection.
#11
Buy a V-card from a Varisity Bar for £2 and get 5% off for a year at Play.com.

So £299 becomes £285 and there's also the quidco to consider as well.
So £285 from Play.com (and the £2 V-Card as well of course). I voted this hot just because it brought to my attention that the NC10 even existed, better value than the EEEPC & Aspire One I should imagine.

The same as everything else then. Don't forget all the US prices are quoted without sales tax.
#19
It's not just the fact that they're cheaper over the pond it's the fact that thanks to Microsoft they're getting huge % cashback on eBay purchases which in turn means dirt cheap netbooks.

Come on Microsoft launch the same scheme in the UK!
#20
in my opinion this samsung is by far and away the best netbook available.

why?

larger screen hence fuller size keyboard
more durable than most
bluetooth
and by far and away the clincher is the 6 cell battery providing batt life of up to 8 hours!

most other netbooks have a really poor 3 cell batt supplied

and netbooks like laptops, mobile phones have batt life which hold lesser charge over time.
this means a 3 cell battery giving a 2hr charge to begin with, after daily use a year later will give about an hour!

1. Most netbooks have 10" screens.
2. While there may be SSD editions this partition one has a hard disk so it's not going to be that durable.
3. Standard on all netbooks at this price.
4. the eee 901, 1000, 1000H and MSI wind all offer 6-cell batteries too.

Sharing common features with other netbooks hardly makes it 'far and away the best', it sounds like you're just praising it because of the samsung badge.

8 hour battery is with everything turned off and the screen down to minimum, using it with wifi turned on and normal settings you're probably looking at half that, maybe less with the 'superbright' screen.

This will be retail price when it comes out so it's not much of a deal.

1. SOME other netbooks have 10" screens
2. SSD is not necessarily noticeably faster than a harddrive and has a much lower storage capacity. Newer HDDs are pretty robust.
3. Don't think so.
4. At an extra £50-£65.
Samsung is not just a "name" the quality of their products is usually very good.
The "8 hour" battery is still twice the capacity of the competition.

By all accounts the first review will appear somewhere here

Personally I dont care about the samsung badge. But you don't seem to be making a fair and objective assessment.

Asus had the 7" EEE PC with a rubbish spec. (which I didn't buy for this very reason) at ~£200+ for a very long time. OKish specced Dells appeared on HUKD for a very similar price (although not as portable) currently the EEE PC 1000H is about £330ish. I think it is Asus who is screwing everyone because they were first in the market and charge higher prices.

The Acer Asire one is £210 for linux version, which is much better than the EEE 8.9" and cheaper - and had Acer not priced this at £200 Asus would never have lowered the price of their 901.

Now saying the samsung is not worth the money is simply not right. Comparing this with the 1000H this has a 0.2" larger screen, twice the HD space, and looks much better (which is more of a personal choice.), the NC10 does not have 11n but 11n devices for most people I would say a quite rare - especially on the move.

I am however worried about the 1 year onyl warranty with the NC10, the ASUS 2 year looks attractive.

I would wait for a review to come out first though. The moment this touches £270 on play or there abouts I will buy it. For the price of £300 this IS the best specced Netbook about, no-one can dispute that.

1. Most netbooks have 10" screens. No they dont most have 8.9" screens
2. While there may be SSD editions this partition one has a hard disk so it's not going to be that durable. A personal choice - I would prefer a larger hard drive - I won't be juggling with this laptop and when I do use it will be placed firmly on my lap or at some desk.
3. Standard on all netbooks at this price - bluetooth is not really an issue a small dongle is £3 from DX.
4. the eee 901, 1000, 1000H and MSI wind all offer 6-cell batteries too - 901 Keyboard is tiny, 1000 and 1000H are overpriced, wind looks rubbish.

I guess that's why Asus launched the 160GB EEE 1000, watch this space :).

You're also assuming that everyone wants a ~10" screen which is not the case, you're also assuming everyone wants a normal 2.5" drive which is not the case.

So that leaves the 0.2" larger screen and personal choice.

Proof

I just hope they bring the UK price down otherwise it's a wasted effort.

If that price was UK £ - I'd be buying that, but we will be screwed over the price as always. :x

The dual-core Atoms won't be appearing in netbooks for about a year, the current ones are for slim desktops and the like. I'm sure an updated Eee Box will be out including them soon.

Ordered from Play.com for £284.99 with RAC code, and via Quidco, though I'm not sure what will track on there as I believe its 0.5% on PC and Eletricals which is poor.

Hi everyone.

I guess that most of you do not have IT background that is why the majority of you have never heard of ASUS. ASUS is a well-known company within the IT world and have been producing high quality mother-board for over 20 years. If you owe any laptop or desktop you are most likely to have an ASUS mother-board on it as they supply them to all mayor brands out there.
In the IT industry ASUS is also well-known to manufacture all the Macbook for the last 2 years and some of the Sony laptops (VAIO being one of them). So whenever you are buying a Sony or a Macbook what you are really buying is an ASUS...........but you PAY Sony or Apple price.
Just recently in the last 2 years is when ASUS is starting to sell and open the market under its own name. They are the fastest growing IT hardware company in 2008. They employ 110,000 all over the world.

I know that all this info can be founded on wikipedia or anywhere else but I thought that you might still find it handy to read.

Saying that, Samsung is not a laptop brand. They have 1.4% of the laptop market which means pretty much nothing! Samsung focus more on other markets in which they share more percent of it, TVs, watching machines, etc. It is true that Samsung has been making some of the DELL laptop for the US market (the inspiron model) but to be honest I find the inspiron model quite cheapy and not very nice........but Samsung makes what DELL pays them for so let's not blame Samsung for this.

Going now straigh to the point, the NC10. Firstly I have to admit I love the NC10 design.....but then again I have not seen it on the flash yet so Photoshop could be making it look a bit better that what it really is.
There are few things that Samsung disappoints me with on this model.
1- No LCD blacklighting compared to other 10" products.
2- Samsung uses nano silver coating on the keyboard. This has caused a lot of environmental concerns when used in other Samsung products such as washing machines.
3- No wireles -n.
4- No 6600MAH battery, only 5500MAH and Samsung have a reputation to have very poor battery performance on other models.
5- The NC10 comes with nothing different compared to competitors. This is perhaps the biggest disappointment. They just copy ASUS and pretend to sell the same product but with the brand SAMSUNG on it.

Saying all this, I think I'd recomend the 1000H over the NC10 but let's have in mind that both of these machines can't be compared to high quality laptops.......lets face the truth. They are great to travel with but far from powerful.

Bu they way, the ASUS Eee Pc 1000H also has a 10.2" screen :-)
#32
Also I forgot to mention.
1 extra year warranty or 80 extra GB HD tight call?????

Are you even serious?

Start praying you do not have any hardware issues after the first 12 months.

That could cost 4-10 times more than those flicking 80 extra GB of HD.
#33
It is amazing to see how many latented programmers owe an ASUS Eee PC.

With the eeectl software you can overlock the CPU up to 2.0 Ghz or down to 1.0 GHz which will seriously increase your battery life at least 30-40 mins.

The eeectl will NOT work on other netbook so far,

what about the toshiba coming out the nb100 ??

what about the toshiba coming out the nb100 ??


Toshiba is a serious laptop brand, they could certainly be a contender in the netbook market.

These are the specs for the NB100:

8.9 ich 1024 x 600 screen
Intel 1.6Ghz Atom
1GB RAM
120GB HDD
LAN, Wifi, 3 x USB and SD slot
XP Home

The netbook looks nice, it has some 80's feeling which I acutally like it. It seems to have a serious touch pad, the NC10 touch pad looks to be far too small.

I'll wait for reviews on this model before buying anything but one to watch out for..........at £260 you can't go wrong with this toshiba!!!!
#36
Another nice contender LG's X110 netbook.

Although I will say all over again.......LG is not a laptop company so dont expect to come out with new stuff. They do the same than Samsung. They copy the leader on that market, make the same product with a nice desing and they add their names to it. What's the great thing about it? I do not get it!

Something instering about the LG is the 6GB SSD option and choice of built-in 3G HSDPA and GPS modules. At least LG bothers to come out with something new :-).

The GPS thing sounds very very cool to me.

I'll keep an eye on the LG..........could be the one to buy.

Hold on, the NC10 doesn't have a backlit screen? So like a normal laptop it doesn't light up then?! Also I'm sure it had wireless...

It DOES have wirles but it doesn’t have 802.11n. About the screen, it is a bit confusing. It has a non-glossy LCD according to the manual.
