I am quite surprised Cnet chose to not be a leader on reviewing and keeping up to date with the NC10. This is samsung's testing water netbook, and it's it looks VERY promising. I ordered one last week and it's arriving tomorrow. It was finally a netbook that caught my attention. I no longer have to sacrifice having to use a netbook with either near-no-memory (like SSD drives w/ 4GB or HDD with 60gb) AND low battery life with a maximum of 1GB memory. Samsung takes care of all this with it's unbeatable battery life, style, 1gb memory and 160gb HDD. Even more amazing is that the memory and HDD are instantly upgradeable to 2GB and 320GB within a matter of minutes.. and the parts are widely available. And it actually comes with XP instead of Vista. Smart move, you can install Linux on there.. if you want.. with that much space.
These things are seriously.. seriously backordered well past Christmas. For now, there's only fleEbay, good thing for us there's the microsoft live 30% rebates going on. I got one for under list/retail price by almost $100.
Honestly I don't know what cnet was thinking. They always cover things I like, but this was too good to have to worry about checking cnet reviews for. Maybe that's why
