SAMSUNG NC20 339.99 @ Dixons + 3% Topcashback

£339.99

Found 7th Jul 2009
Not really the hottest deal ever as some may argue it's still expensive, but for those looking to buy this netbook/laptop like me then this is certainly the cheapest I could find. It was cheaper a few weeks back but all the old Dixons vouchers expired now, meaning it's still the cheapest price online for this version as most online retailers including play and ebuyer still charging over £400.

However, to get it at £339.99 make sure to add code NET1 as it reduces the price by £10 at checkout.

(Code may work with other netbooks/laptops too but unconfirmed.)

Don't forget 3% topcashback!

A netbook at more than the cost of a decent laptop !! here we go again! … A netbook at more than the cost of a decent laptop !! here we go again! :roll:To help me personally understand the point of these can you tell me to what use you would put this to justify the price?



well this is a 12" model so think of it as similar to the 13" macbook without having to pay a couple of hundred quid in appletax. ;-)

Size, weight and most importantly battery life.

Laughable comparision given the speed/performance/capability of the mac … Laughable comparision given the speed/performance/capability of the mac over this



Comparison made as I sold my Macbook and bought a NC10; the latter costing less than 1/2 the former. I have to say there's not much difference in practical everyday use. The netbook is smaller, lighter and has a better battery life :thumbsup:

In which case you bought the mac for all the wrong reasons, writting text … In which case you bought the mac for all the wrong reasons, writting text can be done on a bit of paper cheaper then either



let me know when paper allows you to browse the internet, work remotely and watch videos on the move then ;-) and don't tell me that glossy 13" screen on the Macbook is good for anyting more serious; it's clearly not designed for that and that's why there's a Macbook Pro...

most mobiles have those features nowadays and they fit in your pocket … most mobiles have those features nowadays and they fit in your pocket unlike a netbook



I can see how typing an essay on a mobile phone would work brilliantly. You seem to have some anti netbook crusade going on at the moment.

ha ha now there's your laughable comparison! not sure many mobiles can handle photoshop, which the 2GB RAM in my netbook is very happy with...maybe I should sell my DSLR as I've just realised my mobile has a camera too ;-)

Which also have glossy screens. In fact only one 17" model is available with a matte screen - and you have to order it and pay extra.

PS: All notebooks have TN screens, so what "serious" work did you have in mind that cannot be done on a glossy screen?

Seems a bit off topic from the orignal post now, but for serious photo or video editing, small glossy screens are useless; size/resolution/glare/reflections aside, true colour representation and contrast aren't ideal. So yes, if you need a Macbook for the job, paying extra for the matte screen available on the 17" Pro model is worth it. Anyway, I was simply trying to explain to "whatsThePoint" that netbooks, such as the deal linked in this thread, have a valid purpose as an auxillary computer. In my experience, the 13" macbook was too small/underpowered to replace my main laptop/computer and too big/heavy to be truely portable, but when I bought it in 2006 netbooks weren't an option. Now that they are, they're definately worth considering.

Dixons dont sell the NC20!
