Samsung NC10 Netbook




The big-named brands are catching up with the bandwagon and this time, it’s Samsung that’s just came out with their own netbook — the 10-inch Samsung NC10.

At least they know that the 7-inch and 9-inch netbook market has already been won by Asus and friends. The 10-inch netbook though is still a battle to be won and the Samsung NC10 looks like a good contender.

Has 10.2″ display screen (1024×600) running an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 80-160GB HDD, 1.3MP webcam, memory card reader, WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth. Totes a 6-cell battery that could last up to 8 hours (allegedly).

Only available OS is Windows XP Home. Expected price is north of Php25,500 and could be available next month. Aside from the white and black finish, they have one in metallic-blue which looks nice (could be similar to Acer Aspire One).

  3. Nikko says:

    Wow, another nice contender for the 10″ netbook. Ok so now there’s 3 to choose from :( lenovo, samsung, msi. Oh boy

  4. Jhoanna says:

    Can’t wait to try this one out. I hope it’s better than the Asus Eee 1000H whose touchpad isn’t that great.

  5. Randy says:

    Only available OS is Windows XP Home? FAIL!

  6. Joy says:

    I’ve been looking at the pictures of it on the net and the only edge I could think that the NC10 has is its keyboard – at least the right shift is not in an awkward layout like the 1000h.

    @Randy

    You can always download your favorite Linux distro for free. Most Linux distros already have versions for netbooks and drivers should be at the manufacturers website so it should not be a problem.

    Probably a OS less version would be nice minus 5000 pesos.

    looks promising. will just have to wait for the actual price, i guess. :)

  8. felipe says:

  12. John Ray Cabrera says:

    no information yet of its availability in the philippines? haven’t seen this yet in retail shelves.

    who is distributing samsung notebooks here. i know samsung philippines distributes consumer electronics whil FAMI(first asia mobile inc) distributes mobile phones, but i don’t know who handles notebook distribution.

    do we have any price confirmation too?

    if this is not yet available now, do we have any ETA for this?

  13. Neil says:

    it’d be great if that arrives here soon. possibly the best keyboard out there with the best netbook specs.

  14. frustphil says:

    kelan to maging availalbe sa pinas? i wanna buy one..

  15. looks great! but the price is a bit expensive

  16. rockwin104 says:

    I read very good reviews of this netbook and I am really interested in buying one. Looks like Samsung read all the negative comments on the other netbooks, capitalized on this and created a near-perfect product. I hope it will be priced lower than Php25k and be available in Cebu this month…

  17. bintRey says:

    please, anyone. kindly post when this netbook hits philippine retail shelves. even saudi arabia and dubai don’t sell it yet. uk has it only as a freebie when a contract is signed with a certain provider. i found it only at buy.com and amazon.com. a friend will be going to the philippines soon and i wish i could ask her to buy it for me as am still anxious about buying electronic items online.

  18. rockwin104 says:

    Does anyone know if this is already available in the Philippines? How much? Thanks!

  19. charlie says:

    who is the reseller of this unit here in the Philippines….espicifically in Cebu?

  20. rockwin104 says:

    I asked the frontdesk lady at Samsung – Ayala Cebu and Samsung – SM Cebu and both of them are not even aware that Samsung has a netbook. I was not surprised, though, since the one in Ayala carries only mobile phones, LCDs and TVs while the one in SM carries mobile phones only. I also asked the people from several PC stores in Ayala and SM and they are not familiar with Samsung NC10… I am tempted to order direct from Amazon.com (and the likes) but I am afraid of phising.. Hope somebody who knows where this is availabe in the Philippines can give us info… Thanks!

  21. rol says:

    yup, me too! I am so tempted to do a transaction online. Does anybody here already ordered nc10 online? maybe you could help us.

    If this unit doesn’t hit the market by jan2009, might get asus n10j, but its too pricey!

  22. BENCH says:

    i think the best thing for us to do is to wait for the time that it reach our market..palagay ko nxt year marami na nyan sa pinas at ang pricing is from 21k-23k…im also planning to get this awesome netbook bagay na bagay sakin dahil lage ako nag tratravel..

  23. Kai says:

    Hey guys, bad news I asked a technician at Samsung just yesterday. Sabi niya na Samsung doesn’t sell laptops or netbooks here in the Philippines (as of this moment. He also can’t give a definitive date as to when Samsung might decide to introduce laptops/netbooks to the market. We’re better off ordering online. Kaso lang, warranty doesn’t work here. And there is no service center available that can fix ur NC-10 if something goes wrong. =(

    If any1 has info stating otherwise pls. post! I don’t want to resort to ordering online!

  24. BENCH says:

    I just bought this NC10 last week here in riyadh as a replacement for my dell M1330 which just broke up a year after using it. It cost me 1800 SAR (23000 PHP) while the dell service and repair charge is 2500 SAR.

  33. liz says:

    i purchased my Samsung NC10 on April 23 via Amazon. Barely two months after using it, the unit hanged so I had to shut it down by pressing the button on the right side of the unit. Afterwards, the unit won’t start up.

    Really disappointing. I shouldn’t have tried Samsung.

  34. liz says:

    sayang sa pera

  35. ytsrik says:

    meron n ba samsung netbooks/laptops dito sa pinas? last yr p kc comments dito eh

  36. edu says:

    meron niyan sa compex store sa sm or robs. problem, naubos na agad. 27.5K and lately 25K na lang. I might buy this one or lenovo s10-2 or asus 1000HE bcoz my son wants my acer aspire one aod150. But villman is offering acer aspire one d250 for almost 24K with a free external portable dvdrw driver. what do you recommend? Thesy are all very good…

  37. mavic says:

    i also have a samsung nc-10 pink bought from HK. Super ganda ng features, and the color hehe! HK$4000. It has a magic keyboard and antibacterial. I havent seen this out in the market. Siguro nga madali maubos or net yet introduced. Sana magkaron na so that later on, magkaron na rin ng service center for this.
