  1. Please o please, Samsung,

    No silver edge and silver hinges! Just plain black, blue or white and no shiny glossy features.

  2. I’m thinking of replacing my Eee PC 901 with the NC10. I really fancy a bigger keybaord and screen and the little SSD has become a pain on the Eee

  3. official word is that it will be released in the US in mid-November.

    1. UK Site (saveonsamsung.com) has it on pre-order for £255.31 excluding VAT. Based on current conversion rates, that would be about $440 USD.

  4. Interesting that Samsung uses nano silver coating on the keyboard. This has caused a lot of environmental concerns when used in other Samsung products such as washing machines, with potential problems such as encouraging the evolution of resistant bacteria.

    I, being an environmentally aware consumer (and also looking for a netbook to buy) will think twice about the Samsung product for this reason.

    1. I am also concerned about this, but am wondering if it supposedly works by toxicity or by preventing a point of attachment. The keyboard looks pretty good.

  5. 1.19 cm in height?! Less than half an inch?! That’s simply amazing, compared to other netbooks. But, it still weights almost 3 pounds, which is comparable to others. 8 hours on the 6-cell battery would be nice though.

    1. That’s what the press release says. But honestly. I’m guessing they measured
      at the thinnest point. That’s the only dimension listed. No length or width.
