Paid £299 for mine in March - great price

Nice piece of kit, and good value and build quality for the price.

It really needs to drop to around £250 before Christmas considering its competition (NC20, eee1000HA, etc) but this is a good start.

And BTW, it absolutely flies once you upgrade the ram, install wireless N & swap out the HD for a nice and quick SSD.

ps. And don't expect 7hrs battery life unless you have it sitting idle with everything turned off, all the driver applications stopped and the brightness on absolute minimum. Expect around 4 hours if you're running A/V in the background and browsing the net with med/high brightness.

The Samsung NC10 update model is the N110

http://smartech.blogetery.com/files/2009/03/samsung-n110-netbook.jpg

The Main changes are, Longer battery life (around 9-10 hours Approx)
Gone is the cheap chrome edge around the sides, been replaced by a more sleeker deep red one now, the mouse trackpad has been made slightly larger (a problem on the NC10), also the screen has been made glossy and brighter, although some dont like glossy screens, but i think they look better, the casing is also more rounded and finished, other than that everything else is the same, glad to see they haven't messed about with the keyboard tho, best I've used on a netbook, hard drive can be easy upgraded to 500gb (from 160gb), ram can be upgraded to 2gb also.

However the price is a bit more for the N110, currently it retails for around £349

For me, theres a few cons, no inbuilt HSDPA is a main pain in the ****, I hate having to plug in my 3 dongle, but saying that I've read that in built HSDPA isnt as good as usb types signal wise, the other is the glossy lid top, it's a major finger print magnet, one thing that i would like samsung to change would be these two things and it would be the perfect netbook.

I'm just being picky, other than that it's fantastic, best out there.

Looks ugly though.

Yeah, I prefer the chrome edge on my NC10 (which doesn't look cheap at all). And the "upgrades" aren't really worth the extra money.

So, in short, this deal is very hot :).
#9
how the hell can it be ugly, it's the same fecking design :thinking:

How much mate...and from where..if you don't mind
#14
Is there a netbook available with a genuine 7+ hours battery life? Is the Asus EEEPC 1000HE capable of it?


Anyway, good price for this...hot.

Bought it from TheHut when the NC10 was first launched (before the demand was so high!)

They were charging £293 for the blue version so I bought 3x NC10s when they were having there 10% off everything lunchtime sales. £293 - 10% - £13.18 Quidco = £250.52

The standard price went up to around £330 not long after that....crazy amount £

TheHut cancelled the other 2 NC10s from my order because of the demand......still got £26 quidco for them though :whistling:

It's a great quality netbook but the battery completely failed (didn't hold 2 seconds of power!) just before I was due to take it on a long holiday to the USA. Fair play to Samsung they sent me a free replacement under warranty but that was after I had been travelling around America with the power pack etc.

I can get around 6 hours from the NC10, which isn't bad. Don't think many machines will beat that in this price bracket.

My P Series get similar from the extended battery. So with that and the standard I can get about 8+ hours of real usage.
#17
Hot hot hot!

I bought an NC10 at £310 from CDiscount about 4 months ago, and haven't looked back. Single best computer I've ever bought for all round casual use. My super-specced ACER doesn't even get used now, and will probably end up sold. For portable computing and my evening bedside web browsing, it's the dogs bits.

For the record, the N110 looks incredibly tacky with the red stripe. The chrome does look the business.

I've not had a single instance where I cussed the size of the trackpad... what you don't have you don't miss. You will adapt to the facilities that you're offered by having a 10.2 inch computer on your knee.

I've also had enormous battery life out of mine consistently. I've had certainly between 5 and 6 hours routinely. I run it on a 'medium' brightness on battery, and I trim the 'startup' and 'extension' based software content on all my computers anyway to spring clean and get rid of dead weight. None of it is an 'either or' of features - its simply good housekeeping in getting rid of the worthless crap.

And so far, none of the new releases of the Samsung netbook range are a 'necessary' upgrade from the NC10 which remains in my view the pinnacle of netbook technology.

It's well built, attractive, easy to use, reliable, and honestly, I have to say, I just adore it.

I rarely get attatched to my gadgets but this really is a device to love.

Good price too!

6 hours aint bad, thanks. Tempted. :thumbsup:

Bought mine in November for £285 from Play. I'd also say its the best notebook I've bought, relative to its price.

With 2gb of ram, its noticably quicker than a few other notebooks I've had in the past with higher specs.
Runs other OS's well too.

In short, this is a good deal. Pap retailer though, in my opinion.

yes, you can get 7 hours easily the 1000he. The 1000he has some clever software that allows you to turn off with one click the bluetooth and the webcam, I don't mean "software-disable" it, but to really disable the hardware so it doesn't drain any power.

A minor thing that I love from the 1000he (I have a 1000he and I used to have an NC10) is that the SD slot takes the whole of the SD card, on the NC10 half of the SD card comes out if the chassis). This allows you to do another great trick, which is to disable the HDD and do everything on a high speed SD card, this can make the battery last for even longer. I read a review which said that the battery could last for more than 10 hours with this configuration, but:
1) That depends on the hardware and battery (I mean how lucky you are with the quality)
2) Probably it was with wifi turn off, which is almost a no-go.
3) I can't find the review to prove what I'm saying :S. If you understand french, you can take a look at this website, they did some tests and got from 6.5 to 9.5 hours of battery life.

To be honest, I prefer the 1000he to the samsung nc10, but it's not a big difference.

how easy is this to add memory? which memory will go in this (link please?) and how much up to?

6 hours aint bad, thanks. Tempted. :thumbsup:


Yeah I was pleasantly suprised.

I actually got it when I got stuck out in Rome thanks to our country not being able to handle a bit of snow :roll:. Hadn't taken my laptop because I'd only gone away for a couple of days, but then needed to do some work while I was stuck out there.

My dads pretty much made it his own now. He just charges it overnight and then uses it on battery around the house for the whole day without any problems. The extended battery it comes with as standard really isn't that obtrusive. Its very well built, has a good keyboard and screen (aside from res, but then you're looking at twice the price for a P Series and thats without the extended battery) and looks quite nice. Although I do concur with the previous poster, the red stripe version looks a bit Naff IMO.

At this price you could pickup a second battery and USB modem to give you 12+ hours of mobile computing (USB modem would probably knock a couple of hours off if you had it on all the time) for less then £350.

Best netbook of them all I think (around £250 mark). Excellent battery life, works out of the box with Linux. Nice screen, nice design, easy access to RAM.

Say goodbye to Asus.

Great price for a great product.
Managed to get mine during the Viking Direct 'fiasco' for £220 but would say it is well worth the £270 price tag.
Also available for that same price currently from Currys and Dixons online... just thought I'd mention in case PC World go out of stock or Currys / Dixons make a discount code available.

BTW, does anyone cleverer than me (doesn't really limit it down) know how to make the NC10 turn on with full screen brightness rather than manually adjusting it each time?
#27
any quidco guys?
#28
Nice deal voted hot I almost bought one of these earlier this year but after research I'm waiting for the next wave of netbooks that are set to include the Nvidia Ion . They will easily play Call of Duty , 1943 , Battlefield etc . and can cope with HD .

A whopping two per cent according to the Quidco site.
Which of course is two per cent more than if they had offered nothing whatsoever.
So not to be sniffed at.
Never had a PC World Quidco transaction so no idea if they pay on the exclusive or inclusive of VAT price.
#30
Is this any good? Would it be a good addition to this Netbook? (I am gonna get rid of my laptop)

Need it for 'backing up' DVD's

Thanks all!

The N310 looks good but the battery life is c**p!!

My sentiments entirely.

Last year, I went through 2 netbooks in 6 months (EeePC 701 and then 900), and although I liked the form factor/functionality on the whole, I wasn't satisfied as they came with problems that I couldn' live with.

I got an NC10 last November and I am still in love with it.
I finally settled on white, because I didn't like the look of the black/blue with fingerprints all over them.

Currently posting from my NC10 whilst sat under the hairdryer at my local salon. :)
Great battery life means that I can take it anywhere and I do (UK, Europe, USA). :thumbsup:

HOT! HOT! HOT!
#33
Just bought one, nearly bought one 2 days ago for £299 so glad i didnt! also get 538 BA miles
#34
if i upgrade it to 2gb, how good will it run windows vista and windows 7 when it comes out?
#35
I have just ordered from Currys.
Use discount code 15SAVE to get £15 off orders over £300. I made up my order with swordfish case, O2 USB PAYG dongle and some screen cleaning wipes to qualify for the discount.
#36
Love mine, bought one back in april for £245.

Excellent battery life, easily get 5-6hrs with everything on.

You can of course buy a 9-cell battery which boosts your runtime by 50%: 12+ hours :thumbsup:

The battery failed on mine also, only 5 days from new.
I sent it back and got an EEEPC 1000H. Better screen and sound.

LINUX - I thought it came with XP installed?

Can someone let me know if it has in built WiFi to connect to my wireless router or do I have to add something?

Thanks
