Summary: I got this notebook not only because it was a Samsung but because it was pink. It was for daughter. It was faultless but a bit slow so upgraded the ram to 2gb. Most notebooks need this. Win 7 starter isn't that great of your used to home premium etc.. However enjoyed using this for 11 months then battery stopped charging. Thought it was charger then battery but neither made any difference when replaced.

Summary: I bought the Samsung NC10 Plus nearly two years ago, originally for college as it is smaller in size (10.1 inch) to my normal laptop, and claimed to have a long battery life (13 and a half hours), thus I wouldn't need to take my charger into college with me and search out empty plug sockets.
Pros: Portable, lightweight, Quiet, Fast booting
Cons: Struggles with some full-screen games, applications and programs.
Excellent machine. Shame about the battery pack supplied

Summary: Bought this used NC10 as a replacement for an Ipad. I couldn't stand the Apple pseudo keyboard and it has better communications possibilities. I upgraded the RAM to 2GB and had to buy a replacement battery pack (36 quid) when the original failed (lack of workshop sales QC there). Its now super fast and battery lasts about 7 hours on a full charge running XP. in normal battery mode. For bloaters such as Windows 7 & 8 it might struggle.
Excerpt: Small and mighty When my old dinosaur of a desk top computer finally gave up the ghost I was secretly pleased as it meant that I could treat myself to a nice new shiny laptop. Having a browse round the shops nothing really caught my eye and they all looked a bit intimidating to be honest. Computers have never really been my thing and all I really use them for is the internet, facebook, photos and music so I wasn't sure that I really needed 4gb RAM and a 360GB Hard drive.
Samsung NC10: Fantastic little computer for those who travel
13 March 2012
Summary: Aesthetic: I've had my netbook for several years now and it really has been one of the best items I've ever bought. In my work I travel a lot and wanted something more compact than a laptop so I didn't have to carry a big laptop bag or backpack when I was out and about. Not only does mine completely fit the bill,also as it is white it is more stylish and sleeker than many others I have seen on the market.
Pros: Size is the main one. It fits so easily into pretty much any bag and is very portable.
Summary: Really cannot fault this machine, it's still going 3 years on & it's never had so much as a hiccup in that time. Great screen, still quick enough for most basic work & browsing, battery still getting 5 or 6 hours & looks good.
Summary: Most netbooks (at the time this was released), had basically the same specs, 1024x600 resolution, 10.something inch screen, Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, small hard drive, wireless network capability, and a reasonable battery. The NC-10 seems to take all these specs as building blocks, rather than rules. The processor and memory may be standard, but most other things are improved.
Pros: Keyboard, 3 x USB ports, card reader, free with many contracts
Summary: Well at this stage this product is probably out dated anyway, but I had a lot of trouble with it. Apparently common problems are display failing entirely without warning, sound failing, intermittent wireless connection. However a friend of me has the same item and had no problems with it.
Excerpt: "In my house we have three PCs and four laptops, but when I leave the house I take my NC10 with me where ever I go. I have even watched a film, two and a half hours long while on an EasyJet flight. I carry it in a neoprene sleeve within a Carlton shoulder bag which also contains a small mouse mat, cordless mouse, folding noise cancelling headphones and a selection of usb flash drives and card readers. I have used my NC10 every day for 2 years and ...
Summary: My little netbook! Bought it for a transition period and I still use it as my main computer. After the first year of use there was a -white- screen issue (something to do with a bad connection between the screen and the main part)which was fixed for free by samsung. There are newer versions nowdays, but I have to mention that this works well after two (more?) years of maltreatment ;).
