March 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Samsung NC10 is one part, no mini-computer that stands out, but on the other hand, they have succeeded in really nice with small details that make your computer a good choice.

After I have extracted the Samsung NC10 , I note that there is a mini computer (netbook) I might like. The computer is in black and white, and I've tried is the black. The top is in piano black lacquer, while the indoor unit, the keyboard and screen, is in matte black.

NC10 has a screen of 10.2 inches and is therefore larger than my private Asus Eee PC 901Go . I will not disguise the fact that I like the tiny size 901Go have, but I can see the benefits of choosing a slightly larger model NC10. Foremost is the keyboardthat wins it, then it is almost full size. The keys are comfortable to type on and the buttons are positioned correctly, otherwise this is a problem with many mini-computers, which had to squish them to fit.

Samsung has chosen to run with a matte screen . Personally, I prefer this type, because I like the option gloss reflect too much. However, I fully agree that high-gloss screens - among others, the HP Mini-Note and Acer Aspire One - gives much better image, with brighter colors and better contrast. Betrakningsvinkeln is no big shots on the NC10 and it shows that there is a true inexpensive LCD panel. However, it is not a big problem when you sit at your computer.

Samsung NC10 and hardware

If we look at the hardware that is the same as found in most mini-computers. The processor is an Intel Celeron at 1.6 GHz , the internal memory is 1 GB and there is a 160GB hard drive under the hood. It is quite enough to do what you do with a mini computer - surfing, emailing and so on. One tip is to check out Kingston's special turbo memory for minicomputers.

Gates has three USB 2.0, VGA, and audio in and out. There is also an SD card reader on the front. There are also several LEDs to indicate whether the computer work, charging the battery, etc. Networking Opportunities exist in the Ethernet Port, WiFi 802.11b / g and Bluetooth .

The battery is worth mentioning because it is a 6-cell like. You may namely up to six hours of battery life on your computer, depending on what you do. It is really good, considering that the vast majority of competitors is limited to around three hours.

The touch pad is usually a bit so-so on mini-computers, because there is so much space to use. For the NC10 has succeeded quite well. The actual plate is not particularly large, but the keys are in all cases below, instead of that of some competitors, on opposite sides of the plate. Samsung has also added a skrollfunktion-pad, as you move your finger to scroll, for example, your web browser.

Software in NC10

The installation is easy. Windows XP Home is installed automatically the first time you start your computer. A software from Samsung also takes a backup of the system after the first reboot. Unfortunately there is not much software on your computer. There are no Office Suite, so you must download and fill in with their own programs. On the other hand comes with a 90-day trial of McAfee's security suite.

Samsung NC10 is also available in a model that has built-in 3G modem for those who use mobile broadband. Want to avoid the dongle is a bet that version instead.Unfortunately, the PR firm who lent the computer, no such model in stock, so I could not test this feature. However, I have tried it on several other mini-computers with no problems. It assembles the SIM card at any location on your computer - usually behind the battery - and then it is possible to connect via the mobile Internet just as if you have a dongle connected.

I really liked the Samsung NC10. It is a good buy , if you are looking for an inexpensive mini-computer of this size. The computer feels solid built, and it has several advantages, with the excellent keyboard and touchpad, and not least the long battery life.
