Review Samsung NC10-JP01DE Netbook

 

Netbook oldie. We take a look at the Samsung NC10 Ecko Plus, a tr

Robust case and good workmanship; Powered USB port; Excellent keyboard; Matt display suitable for outdoors; Long battery life with standard battery; Low entry-level price

Keys too small in places; Narrow palm rest and small touchpad; Low screen contrast; Low processor performance; Not much included with delivery

Numerous netbooks with 10.1-inch screens. These include, for example, the Asus Eee PC R101 with its top-notch display, the Samsung NF210-HZ1 with Intel Atom N550 and 3G UMTS module, the Acer Aspire One D255 with N550, or the Samsung NF310 with a matt...

Samsung NC10

 

With the latest crop of netbooks beginning to sport Intel's new Atom N280, which features a slightly higher clock speed (1.66GHz vs. 1.6GHz) and a faster front-side bus (667MHz vs. 533MHz), how well does a netbook built around the earlier Atom N270...

Samsung's NC10 netbook offers great battery life, solid construction, and good performance. And it's not a fingerprint magnet

Samsung NC10

 

The NC10 betters previous Samsung netbooks with a built-in HSDPA SIM card reader and the portability this provides. Optus wireless broadband bundles seem like excellent value.

Sharp design, Built-in HSDPA SIM card reader, Good battery life

No 802.11n or gigabit Ethernet, Trackpad is a bit on the small side

NC10

 

Samsung's NC10 isn't just a netbook--it's a series of interesting choices. It scores a couple points with a good screen, great battery life, and keys sized appropriately for human hands. However, before we rip into this review, you should be aware that...

Recessed mouse button too loose

Samsung NC10 Laptop Review

 

Fantastic software suite ; Fairly colorful screen

Recessed mouse button too loose

This boxy netbook from Samsung is a good first try, but a small handful of design flaws in the mouse might annoy you.

Review: Samsung NC10

 

The best part of this beautiful paragon of plastic and chrome is its keyboard. It's not exactly standard size, but it's proportioned to feel as...

Striking matte interior with chrome accents. Comes in black, blue, or white. Solid performance: Tied the Wind for second place

Single mouse button feels like a clunky, shrunken seesaw. Ships with 1 GB of RAM and holds only one stick, so you’ll have to buy a 2-GB module if you want to upgrade

Samsung NC10-14GB

 

The Samsung NC10-14GB is a well-equipped netbook whose trimmings include a standard six-cell battery, but we'd like to see its price adjusted down to MSI's and Acer's level.

93 percent keyboard. 10-inch widescreen. Standard six-cell battery. Excellent battery-life scores

Touchpad is small. Price could be lower

Samsung NC10 review: Samsung NC10

 

With Samsung's recent entry into the U.S. market, it certainly makes sense for the company to include an example of the hottest thing in laptops right now--the humble Netbook. As evidenced by other recent big-name entrants such as Dell,...

Excellent battery life; decent, nearly full-size keyboard.

Bland design with no outstanding extras; too-small touchpad.

The Samsung NC10 is a completely average Netbook in every way, but we like its keyboard and love its long-running battery.
