Has anyone received a Samsung NC10 from the Hut since 20th November?

They seem to keep changing the status of the stock & my order. I think they have been supplying other people instead of me?!

How much did u pay for it on there?



About £290. They phoned me & told me it would be despatched on 26th november when they were getting 400 in stock. Now they say it will be 18th december and the price has gone up on there site.

I have a feeling they don't want to give me one at the lower price I paid when I ordered it.

Cheaper at sendit.com if you want to cancel and order again.

Sendit looks exactly the same as the Hut website and has the same status 'may not be delivered before christmas' on all models.

I think Sendit are supplied by the Hut. Thanks for the info though, if you see it any cheaper/in stock let me know!!

The Hut, Sendit.com, Lovefilm Shop, Currys Entertainment .. all the same.

I doubt we're going to see it cheaper considering most retailers put the price up, gits.

It is going to be Todays Special Value on QVC this coming saturday and knowing what good deals TSV's usually are id imagine it will be under £300 (most sites have put it up to £320+) and probably on easy payments (interest free monthly payments for between 2 and 4 months).

qvcuk.com is also on Quidco offering 5% so it will be on air at 12 midnight friday night / saturday morning via ]qvcuk.com or sky channel 640, on freeview too i think, and id suggest having a look on there and ditching the hut's offer

Hope this helps

Thanks for the info folks. I noticed all the prices going up when the VAT rate went down?!?!

They were on Amazon this morning, but really wanted the Blue one as it looks less like one of the works laptops. I will keep my eye on QVC and if I manage to get one cheaper I will cancel the Hut's order.

I spoke to QVC yesterday and once they finally found the netbook on the system they said it would be £299.72 BUT postage looked to be £20.50.
They also said more details should have been on the system ,so they may not be able to get stock and so it would not be on offer :-(

When I called QVC I was told that they wouldn't have full details until after 11pm Friday (ready to start the 24 hour promotion at midnight). I find it hard to believe that something they've been touting in a trailer, that's bound to sell large quantities even by QVCs standards, may have to be pulled at the last minute due to stock problems. They are a large operation (turnover of around 350 million 2007-2008) and are likely to get preferential treatment by Samsung over smaller operations because of that and the fact that they are a "showcase" retailer.

Then again I used to think that banks were safe and had money...

As another poster mentioned, QVC tend to offer extras and/or make the price very competitive on their special value items. They regularly seem to offer easy payments over 2 to 4 months on more expensive items, and their no questions asked returns policy must be one of the best in the business.

I hope that is the case, but if the price ends up being about £320 I'll stick with my EEE PC till next year, when stock will be more genrally available and the price should drop again.

Thats a bit steep for my liking. I hesitated at paying under £300 from the Hut as I'm not sure how much it will be used.

So much for the precption that RRP prices are a load of rubbish. The RRP is £299 on this but alot of places like Dixons are putting the price up because of the demand.

Just saw this and wondered what yawl thought. It looks to me like a very simillar machine but you get three years warranty. No word of battery life though.

Battery life, as with the MSI and Advent models, was around two and a half hours with the brightness turned down and the wireless networking switched off. That's below par compared with the leader in that respect, the Asus EEE 901. The company will be selling a larger-capacity battery, though, which will be a necessary upgrade for anyone who really wants to take this computer out on the road.
