A random tech update. I’ve been looking for a little netbook for some time, you know, the eee PC type mini laptops that only cost a few hundred quid. Check out the UMPC Portal more more info on this kinda stuff. I was looking for a machine that I could use on my daily commute into town, hook up to my flatscreen telly or Hi-Fi to stream iPlayer or MP3s etc without needing my main power hungry PC. It had to have a usable size screen and keyboard but I didn’t want a “desktop replacement” laptop either!
This is where the Samsung NC10 came in!
Here are some random specs from the Samsung website:
This 10.2″ wide SuperBright display has an amazing 1024×600 WSVGA resolution, anti-glare finish and great viewing angles. Images you see are vibrant and rich with bold color.
There’s plenty of room for everything you download from the web with 160 GB of hard disk drive storage. Plus, you’ll enjoy a quick system boot-up and fast access to stored information.
