Amazon is taking preorders for a new special edition version of the Samsung NC10 netbook.
Unlike the original NC10, which has a matte screen, the special edition has a glossy screen, which is going to be a bit of a mixed bag. Some people like glossy screens and think they look, I don’t know, shinier I guess. But they tend to be harder to read outdoors or other places where glare is an issue. And they’re fingerprint magnets. It would be nice if you could choose between the new features and select a netbook with a larger touchpad and battery and a matte screen. But that doesn’t seem to be an option right now.
If you’d rather save $50 and pick up a Samsung NC10 with the lower capacity battery (still good for 7 hours), smaller touchpad and matte screen, Amazon is selling the original NC10 for $445.
Update: Photos of the new touchpad are now available.
