Im tempted to save myself £290 and cancel the above order to get this laptop. For some reason Quidco hasnt tracked on the above dell order which takes the shine of the order.

£376 for a something, getting the same size as a laptop.

Has a 1.3GHZ processor...

And 1GB of ram is ridiculous, and less battery life than the NC-10...

Cold for me!

good price compared to other places so hot from me.

Can you point me in the right direction for a 12.1" laptop at 1.5kg with 6 hours battery life for less than £400?

Yes the processor does run at 1.33GHZ at rest. Your point? Intel wont let them use the atom and the ultra low power series of processors are too expensive.

1GB of ram is fine for XP home. Many people would say that more than 1GB is a waste.

So im paying 280£ more for:

4yr warranty
1920x1200 screen instead of stock
500gb instead of 320gb
backlit keyboard
2mp instead of 1.3mp camera
Wireless N
Blu-Ray drive
1gb more ram (dual channel at that)
and a 3450 graphics card (256mb), crap but im not sure what the outlests has.



Is it worth it?

Yes but could you fit that in your small hold luggage bag if taking on holiday? also I doubt you would class the dell as "portable"

Personally I'd choose the Samsung NC10 over this anyday mainly because of the via processor used on the NC20 (The NC10 uses Intel)

OR! you could wait for the Samsung N110, which is the same as the NC10 but with longer battery life (8 hours I think) and larger touch pad.

think they are going to hit the street at around £320 ish

You got alot more extras mate...the ram is a bit of a waste as vista only will recognise upto avbout 3.25 gb of ram.

The Intelcard I got is wireless N i think but need the router. Blu Ray and warrent is prob what pushes the price up...check out what it covers you for and if it does goes wrong whats he replacement terms like. I dont need Blu Ray got a PS3 and 1TB external hard drive. But I got my laptop at a steal just waiting for it now.

What graphics card does your laptop have?

nc10 is better than this

I am better than you
macbook or 13' XPS are not competitors for the netbook




Have you read the review?It is very good deal IMO, I will add heat when moderators unexpire it.Still in stock
#14
4 left in stock (more on the way).
#15
hang on mate - the nc10 has intel but it looks a good deal from the review
any other support??
#16
the deal is certainly worth a rep for the op.
Do not look at the temperature, those voting cold have no idea what they are doing

youre delusional, the nc20 is nowhere near as good of a product as the nc10

and it costs an extra hundred quid

is this the nc10 for the fat people who had problems typing or something?

Well as has already has been said its a in a different sector.

Well on your theory the nc10 is for medium fat people that cant use an acer aspire one which is £100 less!

If you want to get at anybody get at Intel. There the ones holding everybody back, thats why they have had to use the via processor. If Intel let manufactures use the Atom Z series in netbooks the option would be endless. How about a twin processor netbook that uses no more power than a current one? (Z520x2) Too expensive, not that much £25 extra. Netbook with 10 hours battery life can be done. (Z500)

So back to the point there is nothing to compete with it in the market,(macbook air at 3 times the price?) but we will just have to wait to see if the market exists.

Well, Intel does let manufacturers use some of the series in netbooks. The 10" Dell I saw in Currys the other day uses the Z520 cpu and the HP keyboard, but I don't see the Silverthorne processors as being a step up from Diamondville. Quite the reverse, if anything.

£376.97 at Amazon is easily the best price out there (black and white models both available)

Most other places have the NC20 listed at £399.99 or higher (and they don't have stock yet)

£382.66 - Saverstore.com
£390.00 - Dixons (out of stock)
£399.00 - MicroAnvika
£399.99 - Play.com
£401.35 - Pixmania (inc delivery)
£403.74 - eBuyer
£424.99 - Expansys

Only bad thing is you could have got this for £346.36 at the end of February from Dixons with voucher codes and Quidco

Those voting cold because they would prefer an nc10 are being daft. I'd prefer a tosh portege r600 over both of these but that is no reason to cool off a good deal for this item.

For serious typing I don't think you can consider a laptop less than 12" in size. At least I can't with my hands and I'm not freakishly proportioned, honest. Until very recently, you were going to pay at least 700 GBP for a 12" portable laptop. This and the dell mini 12 are the only budget machines in this class.

Yes, it doesn't have an intel atom CPU: it has a VIA CPU which smokes the atom utterly in benchmarks. It is also 64 bit (the atom is 32bit only) for those who care about that and supports the "VT" extension for virtualisation for people who care about that (the atom of course does not).

The VIA graphics chipset also outperforms the built-in intel stuff found in nearly every other netbook.
