The Samsung NC10 Plus netbook offers all the high-end style you’re looking for, but without the high-end price tag. And you don’t have to worry about reliability. Most of its components are manufactured directly by Samsung and undergo intensive quality assurance testing. There’s no compromise on performance either. You can get going fast using an innovative Fast Start, while a 10.1” LED anti-reflective screen lets you enjoy the sharpest details and boldest colours even in direct sunlight. It also delivers an extensive 13.8 hours* of battery power. Which is probably just as well, as it’s lightweight and ultra durable design and host of advanced communication and data-sharing tools mean you really can just keep on going and going.

this looks great for the cash - any tech heads got opinions?
#2
Excellent machine although don't count on what they are quoting for the battery.

Should realistically do around 5-6 hours
#3
This isnt the same as the old NC10 which does 5-7 hours easily, its newer with better battery life. So could realistically see 10 hours I would think.

A good price for the NC10+. The original NC10 was probably the best of the second wave of netbooks about 18 months ago. The NC10+ primarily adds a newer N450 atom cpu. Good spec e.g. Bluetooth and wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n plus build quality and battery life are both exceptional. Main thing worth mentioning, and the same goes for all similar atom based cpus, is that you can forget about running the latest games and/or playing HD quality movies. If that's not important to you, then this is a good deal.

If games and HD are important, then you should be prepared to spend more than £220 (nearer the £300 mark for HD capability at the mo). Also, worth noting that some pundits predict that in Q1 2011, the tablet invasion combined with the greater availability of the new dual-core atom cpu's will inevitably force the price of the basic netbooks down.

I personally, would be tempted to stretch the budget to one of the 12" or 13.3" screen dual core CULV cpu (consumer ultra low voltage) powered machines. If you keep your eyes open can be had for around the £300-£350 mark. These successfully bridge the gap between a netbook and a full blown notebook. Relatively powerful and highly portable, they can multi-task and comfortably handle 720p hi def and output it to your tele. Still not up to serious gaming though. I recently bought a refurb Samsung X120 11.6” screen CULV from the fleabay Argos Clearance Outlet for £260 to replace my trusty 10.1” screen Samsung N130 netbook. Much as I liked the N130, the X120 comfortably beats it in every department except battery life. Also, Comet recently had an offer on a brand new 13” Toshiba CULV for £329. I know these are more expensive but for ‘pleasure units’ per £ spent and future longevity, trust me, they take some beating. But, as ever, your choice should depend on individual requirements and if a basic netbook will do the job you want, then go for it.

Best Netbook out there

Hot.

The specs on their page must be wrong . says it only has 2 USB ports
#7
Dont forget this has LED powered screen so it also extends the battery life!

I have used my existing NC10 extensively over the last 22 months and it has been the best £330 I ever spent!
It was one of the first NC10 machines in the UK and the battery still manages 5+ hours

Time for an upgrade maybe!!!!

Used to fix samsung laptops as a day job, they are the most common model that were returned to be repaired... However I am talking about the older models NC10-KA01UK, KB01UK etc...
If you are looking at buying one please remember a couple of things.
1) Dont tilt the screen further than it can go, its quite easy to do on any NC10 and totally screws the plastics, the hinges and can crack the screen. Just be a bit gentle with it.
Also, they are actually really rather good on batteries, If you have the option of getting a 9-cell battery instead of the 6-cell you can get around 8 hours. From memory I think the 6 cell could manage about 4hrs or so.. This is the new model though so who knows?

it doesnt say that it states "USB Ports: 3x USB 2.0 ports "
#14
This is also running Windows 7 Starter (far superior for netbooks, better battery consumption than the previous model which came with XP).
Yep, a great netbook.
#15
Voted hot, but I'm unable to purchase currently due to low funds :(

I'll be on the lookout soon to upgrade my trusty older model NC10 which I bought last year, but suffers badly now from the infamous 'white screen' problem when I put the brightness up above 3 0r 4.

Read what I wrote, The orignal offer page detailed specs
http://www.bestbuy.co.uk/product/1000141290/samsung-nc10-jp101-netbook---intel-atom-250gb-1gb-memory.aspx
is wrong.

Speakers Stereo Speakers

The OP is correct it has 3 usb but that's not what the actual offer page says.

Runtime quoted as 13.8 hours, see http://docs.xenex.co.uk/samsung/NP-NC10-JP01UK.pdf

Ordered mine, delivery Wednesday, already have the old nc10 that does 5-6 hours and is a great machine.

i'm torn between a hp mini 110-3105sa with 2gb/n455/250gb for 260ukp, an acer d255 1gb/n450/160gb for 230ukp or an asus 1005px 1gb/n450/160gb for 240ukp; all from pcworld/dixons/currys which seems odd - when was the last time that group did anything cheaper than ebuyer?!

i've not considered the samsung, how does it compare on battery life?

all these netbooks seem to have roughly the same specs, so how do you decide between them - purely on brand recognition, weight or on bundled extras (like bluetooth, 802.11n etc)?

my aunt reckons her toshiba running xp - think its a 1gb/n270/160gb does 8+ hours easily, i tried it today and it seems pretty nippy for a 1gb/1.6ghz machine.

Great Netbook at a great price I just picked one up at Croydon they were marked up at £279 I showed the sales person the webshot of the online price at she confirmed the price has not been updated instore yet and the price is £219 Bargain !

"Not available for Home Delivery" :-(
#22
I have the (older) NC10, with the 10.2" screen..and I love it. Lasts about 4-5 hours, though it is a bit of a dinosaur now.

Where's the best place online to get this? My sister's got her eye on it for my niece.

And, dredging up the old argument again, does XP run better, or Windows 7 Starter? I think some of the limitations of 7 Starter will annoy her (all I can remember off the top of my head is that you can't change backgrounds). In saying that, you'd be hard pushed to get an XP netbook now.
#23
Mine arrived this morning , :) nice little machine, This is the first use online with it,
I've emailed BestBuy asking if they will be available for home delivery in future, will post answer here.
Update

Hi Alan,

Thank you for your email.

Currently the Samsung NC10-JP101 Netbook is only available for
collection at store as it is out of stock at our warehouse. When it
comes back into stock we will be able to offer them for home delivery
from the website again.

We estimate to have the laptop Netbook back in stock by the 13th
November 2010.

Can you confirm that what you received was the PLUS version? The model number they are showing is NC10-JP101, which doesn't seem to exist anywhere else. The UK version of the PLUS version seems to be NC10-JP01UK. So I guess it would also be useful to know the model number you received.

Thanks.

[bI can confirm that the model is the NC10-JP01UK, Having set it up it seems a great bit of kit, I also have the original and this one seems to run better. H.T.H, Alan ][/b]

Thanks for that.

I had also asked Best Buy and needless to say they said it wasn't the PLUS version, but to be honest I don't think the person was up to speed at all and didn't address the discrepancies in listed specification and model number I had asked about (or return to stock for that matter).
#27
The price is back to at £279.99 on website
#28
Back down to £219.99 now, keep watching should be available for home delivery soon.

bought one from costco derby today for £217. with 2 years extended warranty!
#30
I just phoned to ask for a stock update and they said they should be getting them back in stock Friday 26th November, "give or take a day".
#31
Thanks OP.

I placed an order for collection for one on the 8th November and since I hadn't heard from them in a while (the email said 3 days), I assumed that they were sold out.
I've been looking ever since for the next best price.

I received an email 23rd November telling me that my order was ready for collection and I have 48 hours to collect it.

I too had an NC10 from launch and paid £310 and it was used daily for 20 months I sold it a few months ago after a buying a cheap Eee PC with the N450 chip and although I enjoy the 10+ hours of battery life, I still think I missed my NC10 as the EeePC doesn't quite feel like the machine that I want to take everywhere like my NC10 was.

Thanks OP, I am pleased to have got one.
I'm putting my Asus EeePC on the eBay tomorrow after I pick up the NC10.
