Left: Asus Eee PC 701 / Right: Samsung NC10

Ukraine’s TechIteasy has posted a detailed review of the upcoming Samsung NC10 netbook. If you don’t happen to read Russian, here’s the Google Translated version.

There aren’t a ton of surprises in the review. The case is attractive, the keyboard roomy and easy to use (by netbook standards). But there are a boatload of pictures of the computer from the front, back, top, buttom, and sides.

There’s a SIM card slot hidden behind the battery pack. And speaking of batteries, this review unit came with a 3-cell, 2200mAh battery which provided just about 2 hours of operation time. Word on the street is that a 6-cell battery will also be available.

  1. honest suggestion and the question… now with samsung how much back up will be there.. i mean how many hours on 6 cell batter…

  2. Nice to hear that the netbooks are improving,
    but I think I will wait until they come out with usb 3.

    thanks from tony

    1. wow! Jules you kinda spoiled my enthusiasm about getting my NC10 tomorrow, I’m not sure if I will want to touch the keyboard now :O

  3. According to all of the websites that are selling NC 10s for preorder in the UK (amazon, dabs, play.com etc) the NC10 has a 6 cell battery and weighs 1.33kg.

    1. Then this is still about 4.5 ounces lighter than the eeePC 1000H, which is at least a small step in the right direction.

  4. The specs give 1.29 kg from the low power 3-cell battery model! So despite the slimline appearance it’s far from featherweight.

    I notice the 13″ Samsung X360 review straight afterwards comes in at the same weight. Why do a number of 12″ and 13″ notebooks weigh the same as their 10″ cousins. Only the S101 seems to buck this trend but I’m loathe to shell out more just for the weight and design. If only it had one or two more redeeming features.

    1. I also wish the NC10 had weighed in a few ounces lighter. The 1.29 kg is just ~ 150gm (~ 5oz) lighter than the eeePC 1000H, which has 6 cells. But still, it has a better keyboard than the eeePC.

      As for the X360 weighing the same, Samsung apparently designed it as a Macbook Air killer, probably with a price approaching $2000.

      About the S101, I agree about the lack of extra features (except bigger SSD), and I don’t like the glitzy appearance. But when I saw the video and the crystals on the ends of the hinges, I was totally put off. This is not a geek’s machine, it is a “suit” eeePC 🙂

  5. That’s rather disappointing. I was really looking forward to this netbook, but the battery is pretty bad. I was hoping for a 4 cell or at least a high-cap 3 cell. Now the thin profile will be ruined by a large 6cell battery.

    1. with 6 cell it gives up to 8 hours, some review now available saying it did 7 hours with WiFi on!
