Love this Netbook!

By

from PA

I recently purchased this netbook after looking at many models and reviews. As I had read, the keybosrd is outstanding. Unlike other netbooks I tried, I can really use this for typing reports, papers, work, etc. I also think Samsung makes some of the best electronics - we own a TV, DVD player, phones, etc. All are top quality. Another great feature is the battery life - key to being truely mobile. For the money, no other netbook had as much. Great purchase.

Best NetBook So Far...

By

from Fremont, CA

As a Mac user, I was very intrigued by the popularity of NetBooks. After researching the plenitude of 10" models and some 8.9" ones, after reading reviewers comments about the netbooks they own, after test driving a few floor models from electronics stores such as Best Buy, Frye's Electronics, and Radio Shack, I've come to the conclusion the Samsung NC10 was THE NetBook to get. When comparing all the other models, most NetBooks come with similar features such as a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom processor, 2 or 3 USB ports, media card readers, WiFi, 1GB Ram, 160GB Hard Drive (often times smaller capacities are equipped), VGA port, 1.3MP cameras, under 3 lbs., smallish trackpads (the nature of NetBooks), and FastEthernet. What sets the Samsung apart from the rest are the included 6-cell battery and the awesome keyboard. The keyboard has a nice positive feel and it doesn't feel cramped at all. The MSI Wind, my second choice, is a strong performer but the Samsung's longer battery life was the deal breaker. A couple of nice features that come standard are Bluetooth and a Matte screen display (less glare). In terms of performance, its standard 1GB RAM is sufficient. I can get about 5 and half hours of normal use - checking email, WiFi on, listening to iTunes radio streaming, and downloading books from Sony's ebook store. If I were a little more frugal, say WiFi on and surfing the net and nothing else, I could get over 6 hours. The Samsung's battery performance is phenomenal. My Black MacBook's normal usage gets about 3 hours. Two minor complaints are the trackpad and the media card reader. The trackpad, as with most NetBooks, is small. You run out of room when dragging anything. The texture is the same as the palm rest, lending confusion to using the trackpad. I purchased a Verbatim portable Bluetooth laser mouse and all my niggles went away. The other small gripe is the media card reader. When an SD card is inserted it sticks out a little bit. If you leave it in the reader, you have to be careful when transporting your NC-10. Otherwise you run the risk of damaging the card reader, the computer, or both. If Apple came out with a NetBook, I would be all over it. As it stands, the Samsung NC-10 is the best out there so far. Pound for pound, it has all the features I wanted and needed. It's also a good looking NetBook with a cool chrome accent on the side - especially in a deep metallic blue. It's not the smallest or the lightest Netbook, but the Samsung hits the sweet spot in terms of performance, size, and features. Despite the 8 year old Windows XP, it's a winner.

Best looking netbook out there

By

from San Jose, CA

I have thought about getting the MSI wind but it looks to rounded. The wind would be great for any girl but not for guys. The Eee PC 901 was my second choice. It had all of the cookie cutter standard stuff and one of the best battery tests out there. But I was disappointed when I saw it in person because it looked like a toy from the 1990's. The 901 looks very boxy and old school. I chose the NC10 because it looks the best and the battery lasts forever. The battery doesn't really last 8hrs like they say but it still lasts between 5-7hrs depending if you have it on max battery life or max performance mode. By far this is the longest lasting battery life I have ever had in a laptop. I never have to worry about it dying half way through class at college. Its lighter and smaller than all of my text books. And since the battery lasts so long I never have to take the charger with me to school. I just leave the charger at home next to my cell phone charger. The touch pad is very small and annoying at first ,but in time I got used to its size. The key board looks and feels just like a regular sized keyboard. The chrome lip thing around the perimeter is what seperates this netbook from all of the others. That chrome lip makes this laptop look like a supermodel compared to the others side by side. Unfortunately the chrome lip was popped out a little bit when I took the NC10 out of the box, but I just pushed it back in really hard and it snapped right back in place. With that said the chrome lip thing along the perimeter is very very pretty but cheaply glued. The power button on the right side glows blue similar to the Vaio FW's power button . The only thing the NC10 doesn't have is 3G network capabilities like the LG X110. Nearly all of the netbooks use the same Intel Atom processor and have the same amount of memory. The only difference between the netbooks is battery life and looks. So far only the Eee pc's, and the NC10 have a claimed 8hr battery life, at least that I'm aware of. So if they are all the same on the inside the only thing left to judge is on outside. And to me the NC10 still looks way better than that card board box of an Eee Pc.

Samsung NC10 is best-of-class

By

from Columbus, Ohio USA

I had been watching the netbook market since the eee PC was introduced. I was looking for something to replace my Palm device that was smaller & lighter than a Laptop. Most of the netbook models on the market had shortcomings - a couple of which I wanted to avoid. Primarily I wanted an adequate key board. I realized that the netbook's small size could require a reduced keyboard, but some received higher praise than others. The .85 keyboard of the NC10 received few major complaints in the early reviews. Second was battery life. The eee PC was touting 6-7 hours performance and I used this as my standard. So many of the new netbook introductions had a wonderful set of features only to be hampered by short battery life. The NC10 seemed to be achieving at least 6 hours for testers. So, I got my NC10 on Wednesday and loaded MS Streets and Trips and my entire iPod library of 1675 songs, videos and photos. On Friday we took a 325 mile trip in the car. With a USB GPS sensor attached I was able to navigate my trip using the NC10. On the return trip I started iTunes in shuffle mode and listened to the music on the NC10 the entire way - about 5.5 hour with it running continuously. Back home Word and Excel documents run fast with no problems. Pictures from my trip loaded speedily even in RAW format. I still have a few programs to load, but, so far, the Samsung NC10 is everything I wanted in a netbook computer.
