Customer Reviews:

  • Great little machine
    This little computer is exactly what I wanted: portable, fast, convenient for travel and taking to class. The sound quality is great.

    My unit came with a problem: the screen would flicker randomly while lines would appear horizontally and disrupt the image. I sent it in to Samsung tech support free of charge and a week later I had it in my hands again, running perfectly....more info
  • I have been researching netbooks for a while now and this one came out on top.
    I was waiting for HP to release the 2140 with the HD display but when they did, all they had as smart, pre-built options had a 6-cell battery. But wait, their 6-cell is not like the NC10 6-cell, theirs sticks down vertically which would cause quite a problem when inserting and removing from sleeves, bags, etc. I could have just purchased the 6-cell smart-buy option and buy an additional 3-cell as an accessory but they don't offer it as an accessory! I called HP and complained and they said my only option was to configure it myself with a 3-cell, but then it would have been $150 more (over $600 total) for less of a netbook!!! I was thoroughly fed-up. I also could have gone with HP's 1035NR but was so fed up with them that I didn't want to give them my business.

    My other option was the Lenovo S10, but didn't hear any good reviews on the standard 3-cell battery life. Again, I could have gotten the 6-cell option but it stuck out of the back of the netbook. The NC10 6-cell is made for the netbook and does not stick out at all; it fits flush, which is nice.

    I ordered the white version and it is a nice pearlized white. It is not shiny/glossy so it does not show fingerprints at all.

    The netbook came with a plain, standard, soft touch sleeve which is nice since now I don't have to buy a sleeve.

    I have used the netbook for a few hours over the weekend and it runs very nice. I went to crucial.com and did a system scan and ordered a 2 GB RAM upgrade for $27.99 before shipping. The netbook is thoroughly fast already, but why not double the RAM when it's only $27.99 and really easy to install?

    Overall, I absolutely love the netbook and couldn't be happier with my choice. ...more info
  • Great Netbook
    I bought my NC10 about a month ago now. I have been very pleased with it so far. I did upgrade the memory from 1GB to 2GB - it's a very cost-effective upgrade with memory as cheap as it is now. It performs well, you can even do some light gaming on it. I mostly use it to surf the web, email, hulu.com, etc.

    If your in the market for a Netbook, you can't go wrong with the Samsung. And in reality, I'd dare say it's one of the best ones on the market....more info
  • Samsung Netbook Shines!
    I looked at a variety of netbooks and this one simply outshined them all. I have not been disappointed. It's perfect for on the go and does everything it should. Samsung did an excellent job.

    I upgraded to 2 gig of ram and the installation was simple.

    Some advice from personal experience. I purchased a generic external USB Slim DVD CD R/RW Drives Burner Writer from ebay for $30 to watch DVD's and play games. They are usually $40-$50 with shipping included (shipped from China) and downloaded the Intervideo XPACK after coupon for $12 and have had no problems. If the audio/video freezes plug in the power usb cord in addition to the usb cord for playing the device and this solves the problem. This download gives you the software and decoder allowing you to play your DVD with the Intervideo, Windows Media Player or Real Player.

    ATT is the best wireless card reviewed by CNET. They did a wireless card showdown this week.

    Oh, don't forget to use both the Windows Update and Samsung Update Plus and download the updates on a regular basis. Very easy to use....more info
  • Really lovin' my Samsung!!
    As a nursing student, this netbook fit the bill! It's light enough to fit into my purse or backpack. I get compliments on the pink color, but mostly I'm asked about its performance. While it is not a fast as my Mac, it is gets the job done. The keyboard is surprising comfortable. The only issue I don't like is having to hit the function key for some letters on the keyboard. Anyone know how to change that function, no pun intended, PLEASE let me know. ...more info
  • Fantastic netbook
    This netbook is amazing. I usually do not write reviews here but I must make an exception for this little netbook. I have been using it for the past 3 weeks and it doesn't stop amazing me. The portability, compactness apart, the machine seems to have excellent build quality like others before me wrote about. Connecting to Wi-Fi is effortless with no dropped connections. I'm planning to upgrade to 2GB RAM but for the moment, the 1GB seems to be good enough. Haven't faced any machine sluggishness with the limited applications I use which are email, web browsing, photo and music management. Even after hours of usage, the netbook underside doesn't heat up as much as my 13" Macbook. The fan also seems to be extra silent. I haven't tested the battery life as yet since I tend to use the power source whenever I can. But getting 6-7 hrs life out of this little machine seems very much possible.

    Overall, this little netbook is good value for the higher price you pay for it. I had the Asus 1000HA in mind previously but this one was easily available here in India. I had also read the rave reviews about this product here which titled my decision towards buying this one. No regrets about buying this one. Highly recommended.

    UPDATE 4/22/09 - Replaced the 1GB RAM with 2GB. The process was a breeze and is fairly simple.Have been using the netbook basically for web-surfing since then, so cannot comment on overall speed increase but I did find a considerable difference while opening some applications and files. A recommended upgrade....more info
  • Great little Netbook
    This Samsung is a great little unit. It is replacing an old Toshiba notebook I have. My wife and I have used it for a couple of weeks now (including a trip) and it's everything I expected and more. It's very well built and it's feature set is just right. The keyboard is excellent. My wife used to type for a living and she had no problems with it. The webcam works as advertised, and the bluetooth works great with a Logitech bluetooth mouse and the Motorola S9 headphones I purchaced separately. The one upgrade I made was to buy a 2GB memory stick which was easy to install (5 minutes). Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone....more info
  • Samsung NC10-14GW

  • Great Little Netbook for the Traveler
    I got this notebook after reading all the glowing reviews on it. I am literally wrapping up my first trip with it and typing this review on the Samsung from my hotel room.

    I wanted something that was small and lightweight to do my email and browsing on while away and the Samsung performed as expected.

    The almost full size keyboard was no problem to type on. I minimized the taskbar to get more screen while browsing. As some comment on the trackpad takes some getting used to but is manageable. In general I used a little tiny travel USB mouse which was fine and made things easier as I'm not a trackpad fan anyway.

    Battery life was very good. Wifi worked fine here at the hotel out of the box.

    I got mine in blue and it is sharp looking. I also got the RAM upgrade and the neoprene CaseLogic case that everyone recommended here. It fit the little mouse and power supply just perfect but left no room for anything else.

    Overall I am very pleased with this little laptop which allowed me to do all my email (I use gmail) and other web related work. I was able to login to my home computer via gotomypc on the Samsung without any issues or performance problems.

    For anyone looking for a good little netbook I would recommend this product. IF I had to pick any con to it I would say the speakers could be a bit louder but if you plan on listening to any real sound just attach some earbud headphones to it and listen that way.

  • Great little mini laptop
    I purchased this product about a month ago and I love it- its compact and light. You can handle it with one hand. The keyboard is like the average PC keyboard. The booting is fast and downloads are quick. The screen is sharp and bright. The best part is the battery life. If you are looking for overall satisfaction, then this is the one. The volume is a lot to be desired, but that is easily fixed by adding speakers....more info
  • Perfect computer for travel
    I did a little research and decided that the Samsung NC10 was the best netbook available right now due to the long battery life. I was right! I LOVE this little computer. I literally opened it for the first time on the plane to Paris. Everything worked perfectly right out of the box (except the McAfee - dump it quick!). I got online in a few seconds in the terminal waiting for the next plane. As I am traveling extensively overseas right now, I need a computer that can find and connect to available wireless networks quickly, and it does. The battery lasts about 6 hours - not even trying to save it. (Everyone else is scrambling for a place to plug in - not easy overseas.) I can just stick it in my purse and go all day. The video cam works great for Skype and staying in touch with family. I have had NO problems, and I am SOOOO glad I made the last minute decision to get this computer. Amazon got it there when they said they would, too. Good purchase. ...more info

  • Samsung NC10 review
    I just purchased Samsung NC10 14 GB 10.2 Notebook. I think this is great little notebook if that's what you are looking for. It is easy to type, good resolution and very light for what you can do with it. It is also a lot of fun to use. This is the only notebook I carry with me when I teach or travel. Another great product from Samsung!!!...more info
  • Great machine
    I've had this for about a week now and love it. I have a desktop so I just wanted this to check email, surf the web, watch streaming videos, etc... nothing too serious. So far I have absolutely no complaints. The upgrade to 2GB of RAM was easy, it picks up my wireless connection with no problem, I routinely get 6+ hours of battery life, and web pages load quickly.

    I was worried a bit about the speakers from some of the reviews here, but someone posted a "fix" on one of the discussions and after that my speakers are louder than my girlfriend's Macbook. They are still a little tinny, but I can't complain much about that.

    Highly recommended for someone who wants portability but doesn't want to pay $2000+ for a lot of features they won't use....more info
  • A Gift
    Purchased this item as a "Just Cause" gife for my G/F. He's had it for about 8 hrs now and she's been raving about it. From the pink/white color scheme to the ease of operation. ...more info
  • small and light - almost right
    After a month or so, I am still very happy with this. It's my laptop for when I travel. Wireless works great, battery life is good, keyboard is good, but I prefer the mouse to the touchpad if I have the space. ALso, not much bloatware came with it - nice clear boot. My only criticism is that the display is very slow when you are loading ordinary web pages. It would be nice if there were an option to upgrade to xp-pro. Also, a good tool to migrate files from a Vista PC to an XP PC would be helpful.

  • This Little Computer Is The Bomb!
    Samsung NC10-11GP 10.2-Inch Netbook (1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, XP Home, 6 Cell Battery) Pink

    I love this computer! It is small, cute and convenient, with a nice long lasting battery. Very good to carry around from class to class without worrying if or when it (the battery) will die on you. And it came well before Amazon said it would! But. UPS is the worst!!! If you can get it shipped FEDEX instead, do it!!...more info
  • not perfect, well used, still loving it
    This is a great machine. The only flaw that I have found so far are the very poor sounding speakers. I have an iPhone and the speaker in my iPhone is far superior to the speakers in this netbook. Seriously, they are pretty bad. That said, I have yet to find a single other flaw with this machine. It is very solid and tight-fitting with no rattles at all.

    The keyboard is remarkably generous, surprising me with it's ease of typing because I have big hands. I use a Microsoft Natural all day long on my desktop but have no trouble making the transition to this netbook's keyboard. The Control key is in the lower-left, right where it should be! Some laptop manufacturers put the Fn key there (ugh) and it completely screws up my touch-typing, so this is a big plus for me.

    The touchpad takes a little getting used to, but maybe that's just me because I've been a ThinkPad TrackPoint bigot for many years. The single button for the touchpad is no big deal, it's actually two switches underneath for the left and right click. Once you get used to using it, the size of the touchpad isn't a big deal. As with almost any input device, continued use will train your hands to do the right thing.

    The screen is nice and bright, but be ready for the short height of this display. It will take some getting used to, and if you are using any apps that have a display area where the vertical height of any window or dialog exceeds 600 pixels then you WILL have issues here. It's a good idea to adjust the resolution of your home machine to 800x600, replicating the vertical resolution of this netbook, and then test your "must have" applications to ensure you can run them without issues before buying this machine. Be sure to check the settings, configuration, etc. dialog boxes of your applications because if you can't move the window up enough to click on Apply or OK then it's going to be tough to work with those apps on a 1024x600 display.

    Finally, the battery life is stupendous! I can easily get eight hours of low-power use on this machine, or use it here and there for a few DAYS without charging. I tell you, this is absolutely amazing. My previous machine was a desktop-replacement-class notebook that was very heavy and ate the battery in less than one hour. This netbook is very frugal with power and I can't see myself ever going back to a more power-hungry notebook/laptop. This is nearly in the realm of mobile phone charge & use cycles, and for a machine as capable as this, I am amazed.

    Bottom line is that I am about to buy another one for my wife and that says as much in itself as all of my previous words. I would highly recommend this machine....more info
  • So far very happy
    Like many of the other reviewers on here I've had quite a lot of experience with computers, so I had some real trepidation about purchasing a netbook in the first place. After having this computer a couple of weeks though, I really feel good about my purchase. Also like many of the other reviewers, I decided to upgrade to 2GB of RAM, but I did use the computer for a week or so using the stock RAM and had no complaints. In fact, the only reason that I added the additional RAM was because I decided to "upgrade" to Windows 7 (beta) and figured it could use a little extra horsepower.

    My upgrade to Windows 7 was not without its challenges. Obviously the first problem was that there is no DVD drive. However I was able to transfer the software on my thumb drive using Deamon Tools Lite (free) and run the installation from there. Once I installed Windows 7 I had to reinstall drivers for a few items. Luckily I found a website that had links to most of the needed drivers (http://www.ademiller.com/blogs/tech/2009/01/windows-7-on-the-samsung-nc10-netbook/).

    With Windows 7, this is a great little laptop. The computer generally goes from a cold boot to being functional in about 50 seconds, and the battery life is nothing short of amazing. I routinely get 6(+) hours surfing the internet with wi-fi. Two things about the battery life: 1) Windows 7 has its own energy software built in, but you can go on the Samsung website and download their energy management (I forgot the name) for Vista. Once you install it, you'll have an additional energy "profile" in Windows 7. 2) The other thing that I learned is that if you are planning on watching video over YouTube (or similar) on this computer you cannot have the energy setting at its most frugal. I originally had it set to use as little power as possible, but when I watched video it was all choppy. I was just about to return the computer when I decided to adjust the power setting to "balanced" - now it works great.

    All in all, I am very happy with this computer. In fact, the only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because it looks like Samsung has some newer models coming out that might do this in; including one that runs on the VIA Nano chip instead of the Atom. Having said that, these new computers may end up being more expensive, so maybe its a push.

    Finally, Amazon also sells an exclusive Special Edition of this computer. The two main differences are that it has an extended batter and a larger touchpad. Both would be great, but given the increase in price that accompanies those changes, I couldn't justify it - especially with the new models coming out soon.

  • GREAT Netbook!!!
    I have had my NC10 only a few weeks but couldn't be happier. I did my research on not only Amazon but also CNET and a few techy friends and this Netbook is on the top of many lists. I does exactly what I wanted it to do and more. Great storage space, fast and has many of the bells and whistles of the more powerful devices... GREAT job Samsung!!! ...more info
  • Great Machine, Works well with Ubuntu Linux
    I've been using this computer for the last month, and I am very pleased with it. I setup a dual boot using the Jaunty Ubuntu Linux NBR (Netbook Remix), and it works flawlessly. It seems to have everything I want in a computer, the only thing missing is a CD/DVD drive, but that is OK given the small size, weight and price. I recommend getting another 1GB stick of RAM with your purchase so that you can double the amount of internal memory for only about $20. Replacement of your RAM is very easy, taking only about 5 minutes on my part and not requiring any special tools other than a small phillips-head screwdriver. I stuck a logitech wireless mouse on it, because I don't like the trackpad (although it works OK in a pinch).

    The only disappointment that I've had is the battery life only seems to last about 4.5 hours instead of the advertised 6. This isn't a deal-breaker, and it may be related to the fact that linux burns battery at a faster rate than windows. Overall, a great machine for most common computer tasks, and a perfect computer for running ubuntu linux....more info
  • ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!
    Interestingly enough, until a friend of mine mentioned it to me, I hadn't paid a lot of attention to how popular netbooks had become. But as soon as she did, I immediately went online to research them and read tons of reviews, outlining each brand. Finally, I settled on the blue Samsung NC10, and I'm so, so happy I did! This tiny, little machine is absolutely wonderful, and I wish I had purchased it before now. As a writer, I travel quite a bit throughout any given year, so the minimal weight and overall size is perfect for all my needs; which is why I'd been thinking I would mainly only use it while on a plane or possibly when I want to work while sitting in a coffee shop, on our back gazebo etc., but as it turned out this past week, I used it for writing every single day.

    Then, as far as the set-up, the entire process was very quick and easy, and I had no problems at all downloading my office software from Microsoft. I primarily use the word processor, but I also use it daily to sign on to the Internet as well and still my battery has been lasting on average for seven hours---and that's also with the brightness of the screen turned up pretty close to the maximum. Oh and one other thing. While I've always been a pretty fast typer, it now seems that I'm typing even faster and I'm wondering if it's partly because I feel such a great sense of control over the netbook when it's sitting on my lap.

    There's so much more I could say but for the sake of time, I'll just give my overall opinion: I love it, it is by far one of the best purchases I've made in a very long time, and I highly recommend it to everyone!

  • Fantastic!
    I've had my pink Samsung for over a month and absolutely love it. It is lightweight, fast, and does everything I need. While traveling I had no problem using the wireless, and it connected to my home network easily. The battery life is awesome! I got rid of McAfee and also downloaded Firefox and the speed is almost better than my desktop. I concur about the speakers, but it still earns a five star review from me. I am a very happy camper! ...more info
  • Great little computer
    Great computer for the price. I had this computer for about a month now and it works great. The internet is quick and streaming video is good. It is so small and light I can put it in my small brief brief case and hardly notice it. THe only downfall is a relitively small touch pad (which I use a wireless mouse so no matter) and the speakers are not that loud....more info
  • Excellent quality mini notebook
    I noticed with other netbooks, the lower evaluations were running 10% of total, but with the Samsung they were running at 5%. That tranlates to 50% less complaints for Samsung than their competition! Mine worked right out of the gate. Everything about it looks and feels quality built. Installing Windows was automatic. The keyboard is 7% smaller than a typical notebook keyboard, but I didn't have any problems typing. The position of all the keys is very logical, so getting used to the keyboard is almost second nature. The actual color is a shade or two darker pink than what you see here. I think it looks prettier in person. There is a single slot for memory and the maximum memory the computer supports is 2 gig, so if you plan to upgrade the memory from one to two gig, make sure you buy a 2 gig memory card. Surprisingly, the hard drive is also upgradable and can easily be swapped out for one with more capacity. It uses a straight SATA notebook drive. However, upgrading the hard drive means opening up the case and that voids the warranty, so you may wish to wait out the first year. Samsung now provides a slightly larger netbook that comes with a full size keyboard, but it also weighs a bit more. Plus, the color selection is limited (no pink yet). My daughter insisted on pink. Actually, I have no complaints. I'm very pleased with my purchase....more info
  • Simple as ABC
    Have had the "Samsung NC-10 14GW" Netbook for one month now and it is great. I ordered the 2GB chip with it and just removed the cover and slid out the old chip and slid in the 2GB chip and started using the computer.

    Have not had a problem finding wireless sites and logging into the unsecured ones. The battery has long life which truly makes this portable.

    The touch pad requires quiet a bit of pressure to get the zoom in and out feature to work sometimes. Its like spinning your wheels and getting nowhere and then it catches.

    Other than the touch pad minor fault this is a great Netbook....more info
  • All that and then some!
    After reading all the glowing reviews of the NC10, I didn't hesitate in ordering one. It arrived quickly and safely from Amazon in just three days. Right out of the box it fired up flawlessly and I was simply amazed at how well it performed! I'm a tried and true HP fan and this is the first Samsung product I've ever tried and couldn't be happier. After making sure everything worked correctly, I installed a 2GB RAM card like so many others and it took all of about 5 minutes. Then, I loaded Microsoft Office and several other programs that I use daily and they all loaded and worked fine. Today, I bought an LG slimline DVD/CD player/burner and it worked perfectly with no issues whatsoever. The only downside I've seen so far is the volume. While playing a CD or DVD, the sound is rather low no matter how high it's cranked up using the control panel. I suppose it will be necessary to use some headphones to get the full effect of sound from the NC10 but haven't had time to experiment. Outside of that minor issue, I just love this netbook! It also installed quickly onto my home network which was a definate +++++. On a funny note, when I tried typing, I got all kinds of weird symbols with the keys that are activated by the Fn key. I quickly found out from a Samsung forum that I had to hit the numbers lock key to make things work properly. Once done, it was just perfect.
    The blue color may pick up some fingerprints, but that's OK- blue is such a cool color! I little Pledge and soft rag takes the prints right off and makes it shine like a jewel. Thinking of a netbook? Look no further than this Sammy NC10! ...more info
  • GREAT Netbook with Bells 'n Whistles
    Since there's so many reviews on this product already, I debated adding one more. But, I'm tossing my 2 cents in.

    This netbook is an exceptional buy for those that want lots of bells and whistles with a brand name (Samsung) and especially those of us who appreciate a bright, clear, and anti-glare screen.

    For me, when I had narrowed my choices down to 3 netbooks, the NC10 and the N120 were in the final selections. So was the HP2140. And, the HP lost because of one feature: it's screen. I couldn't get over the idiocy of HP to cut corners on a screen that should be on a par or better than other netbooks, including its own "mini" series. With the HP out of the picture, I argued with myself between the NC10 and the N120. In the end, it was the NC10 with the anti-glare screen that took center stage. BTW, I use headphones for music, etc., so the NC10's higher-pitched and low volume speakers were of no consequence to me. But, I've listened to them now and they are "okay" just nothing to brag about. This is a netbook and I'm not interested in broadcasting what I'm viewing or listening to.

    Performance-wise, when the NC10 arrived, I immediately unboxed it and dropped in 2 gigs of 667MHz RAM. That operation took less than 5 minutes (I took my time). So, I have no idea of the performance of the NC10 with the 1 gig of RAM. I do know it is quite responsive with with the 2 gigs. I am very pleased by it. I had over 9 windows open and the little thing was still moving along quite nicely.

    Next to come off the NC10 was all the bloatware. I was surprised to find little of it (thankfully, no trial versions of Word, or Office or Works). I also removed the McAfee security suite. I then installed my security suite, OpenOffice, Firefox, and a few other XP programs that should come free with XP, but don't. See Uniblue on the web.

    The fan is absolutely silent! I can't believe it. My 17" HP roars next to the silence of the NC10! That was a shock to me; a very pleasing sound.

    Battery life? I figure 6.5 hours is about right. If you want more, take on the N120 along with its larger footprint (size and weight).

    I also downloaded Ubuntu Jaunty onto my NC10. Jaunty runs beautifully, definitely faster than XP. I'm debating whether to keep XP or turn my NC10 into an Ubuntu Jaunty machine.

    Lastly, finish and construction. The chinzy chrome noted in the other reviews was of no consequence to me. I sort of appreciate it for its ascetic "add-ness" to an otherwise drab computer. The case is plastic but seems to be of a higher grade than that of several other netbooks I've looked at. The glossy black top is definintely NOT a fingerprint magnet, as it's more a matte than a glossy. The keyboard is fantastic! Big shift keys for us touch typists and it's size is easily adjusted to within the first few minutes of use. I've made 3 typing mistakes since I began this review.

    In my mind, the NC10 or the N120 definitely need to be on your "must see" list if you're opting for a netbook....more info
  • Great little computer.
    After researching Netbooks on Consumer Reports, I bought the NC10-14GB. It exceeded my expectations. Very long battery life, good screen, great speed and very portable. I highly recommend it....more info
  • Would buy it the next time
    I've been using NC10 for a couple of months. Moreover, my unit is equipped with a built-in GSM/UMTS/HSPA modem which is a great advantage indeed and gives the user the real connectivity freedom as you're no limited to WiFi's available. My wife owns an MSI U100 which I had been operating previously. NC10's pros in comparison with MSI U100 are the built-in modem mentioned above as well as a better battery and keyboard. Cons is the display which is not as bright as on the MSI....more info
  • LOVE THIS NETBOOK!!!!!!!!
    I recently purchased this netbook and after ordering was very excited to recieve it in the mail. Almost two months later, the excitement has not subsided. This is a great little computer, and allows me to do all the functions I need to do. The only thing I would recommend is getting an external cd/dvd drive. I thought I could get by on just usb alone, but realized I was wrong when I went to import some of my cd's to iTunes. I mainly use my computer for email, internet, music, word processing, and photo storage. I have definitely been impressed by what this machine has to offer!!!...more info
  • Love this Netbook
    I purchased this netbook about two weeks and I really love it. I did a ton of research and read just about everything on available netbooks. I decided to get the Samsung based on all the great reviews I read about it, especially here on Amazon. I looked at the Dell Mini 10, the HP mini 1000, the MSI Wind. Since I travel all the time, I needed something that was light enough to travel with yet, was powerful enough to handle all the things I need for work. There seemed to be issues with all the other ones I liked at, except the Samsung. There is a great support on-line community that offers good suggestions too. I am not highly technical, but can get by with a little help. I'm not going to do anything fancy with it. If you are debating about a netbook, I highly recommend them and I highly recommend the Samsung. I love it....more info
  • This is the netbook you want...
    I bought this netbook for a simple purpose, to use as I travel to manage my blog. I will carry this along with my work laptop to keep personal things separate. This is compact, but not too small. It has the video port and RJ45 internet port built in (unlike the HP model). It has three USB ports (very handy). It instantly recognized my bluetooth mouse without having to plug in the stupid dongle (or take up one of the USB ports). You can choose how big or small to make the partitioned D drive when you boot up for the first time (the partitioning directions are included in the handy cheat sheet). I made mine 0mb (that's zero) so everything is one contiguous C drive. It comes with a nice little slipcover (not a padded neoprene one, but very sufficient for my needs). It also has nearly zero bloatware. I ordered the memory upgrade direct from Crucial.com. The unit works great. And I bought the blue one which looks very distinctive. I chose to buy the cheapest external CD drive (which was not very portable, but I wasn't seeking portability in the CD drive). I installed Office 2007, some other writing tools and I'm all set up. It surfs the Internet pretty fast (did not notice any degradation). The price is right, the size is right and the configuration is right (160GB and XP). This is the one you want....more info
  • Samsung NC10 Review
    I love this netbook. I did buy the upgrade to 2GB RAM and this works better and faster than my laptop computer. Since buying I have been on several trips and am getting ready to go on another. This netbook is small and light, fits into the pocket of my carry on luggage, has an extremely long battery life and a great wireless signal.
