If you happen to read Korean, I’ve got good news. The Samsung NC10 user manual is now available for download. If you can’t, I’ve still got good news. The upcoming netbook has a RAM access panel on the back which means that it should take about 2 seconds to upgrade the laptop’s 1GB of RAM. Just undo a screw or two, pop out the old stick, and replace it with a new one.

There are a bunch of other pictures in the manual showing things like the keboard layout, the location of the power button (on the side of the unit rather than above the keyboard as we’ve seen on many other netbooks), and instructions for replacing the battery.

For some reason Samsung chose to release the user manual as an executable file which weighs in at about 16MB. It’s not necessrily easier to read than a PDF, but it’s certainly larger. But if you’ve got a broadband connection, a Korean dictionary, and some free time on your hands, check it out. And let me know if I missed anything really exciting.

  1. I have run out of memory on my C drive but have 80GB available on my D drive. How do I use the D drive or how can I change the partition sizes?

  2. So as a linux user i should make sure i never buy from Sony and should make sure i make that clear to anyone that asks about who to buy new hardware from. Does the machine work with linux? Exe files are very vulnerable to malware so Sony are encouraging people to choose risky formats!1

  3. my Samsung NC10 doesn’t work function key. (e.g: to increase and decrease the brightness or volum) and now i want to download it drivers but i can’t. could u help?

  4. hi i just bought a nc10 with a 2gb ram card on the recommendation of the seller; what exactly will this do for my computer’s performance? i have 2 weeks to decide to return the card +/- the whole set-up, if needed

  5. doesn’t it seem a bit rediculas that they supply recovery discs on dvd when there isn’t a dvd rom in the machine. haven’t they heard of usb pen drives?

  6. Just noticed today – Play.com seems to be honoring the UK price drop and now lists the NC10 at £299.99. Presumably this will apply to preorders already taken.

  7. > it should take about 2 seconds to upgrade the laptop’s 1GB of RAM

    I’m not sure what you would upgrade it to though. The specification page in that e-manual (page 157) states that 1GB is the most the netbook can handle. It’s possible that the “paper” specifications have been dumbed down a little to comply with the XP Home license restrictions. Or maybe the device ships with artificial limits which will be removed in a later firmware update (as we have seen from other vendors). Even so, I think I’ll wait and see how other upgraders get on before jumping in myself.

    Another interesting thing to note on the specs page – there are three display options:
    – 10.2″ 1024×600
    – 8.9″ 1024×600
    – 10.1″ 1024×576
    Presumably the last two will be released later in a lower-cost model.

    I was hoping the manual would reveal a little more about the HDD and how easy it would be to replace. It appears to be a standard 2.5″ SATA unit but there are no instructions on how to get to it. I assume it will probably be a down-through-the-keyboard job. 8GB and 16GB SSD versions of the NC10 were also mentioned – the SSD modules utilise the standard SATA connector and sit in the HDD bay, so they should be as easy to swap out as a standard HDD.

  8. Just wondering if they would ever come out with a netbook that could accomodate 2.5 Gig of RAM? If I’m not mistaken Acer Aspire 1 has a built in 512 and its expansion can go up to 2GB. I ask this to add more muscle to the netbook given that rumors have it that Atom Duo would not make it to this category…

    Which is a bit confusing also given that there is a computer reseller here in PH that claims an upgrade path option to Atom Duo from Single Atom Core. Just look at the Laptops with Atom Core .. https://www.pccorner.com.ph/products.do?action=showproductbycategoryandbrand&producttype=23&showall=true
