Samsung NC10 9-cell battery boosts runtime by 50%: 12+ hours

Samsung NC10 9-cell battery boosts runtime by 50%: 12+ hours

The Samsung NC10 netbook has become somewhat infamous for its incredible battery life, with some reviewers reporting in excess of 7hrs runtime from the standard 6-cell pack.  So it seems almost greedy to ask for a larger, third-party battery, but as we've seen for the MSI Wind, retailers will always offer that temptation.  UMPC Fever have been running benchmarks on the first 9-cell Samsung NC10 battery pack, and from the figures they're getting you're looking at around a 50-percent increase over Samsung's standard battery.

The Samsung NC10 netbook has had a pre-release unboxing and benchmark photoshoot, pitting the NC10 against ASUS' Eee PC 901.  While falling short of a full review, it does tell us that the keyboard is more usable than the Eee PC's - thanks to larger keys - and the trackpad, though relatively small, works well.  As for the benchmarks, in CPUMark 2.2 the NC10 scored 75.05 points, while the 901 managed 74.27.

Samsung NC10 netbook: better keyboard layout than rivals

Samsung's NC10 netbook is garnering more and more interest, with new higher-resolution images showing a well-laid-out keyboard that makes fewer concessions to a smaller casing than, say, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9.  The 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and 10.2-inch 1024 x 600 display are confirmed; what's new to us is that the VGA output can drive an external monitor at up to 2048 x 1536 at 85Hz, and that the N10 has HD audio.

Samsung may be delaying their N510 Ion-based netbook in the US, but someone in Germany obviously didn't get the same memo.  NetbookNews has not only unboxed the 11.6-inch notebook but thrown up some comparison shots between it and the smaller Samsung NC10.  There's also some demo footage showing HD video performance of both systems side-by-side, in case you're really wondering what difference the GeForce GPU makes.

Samsung ND10 OS-free netbook is crying out for Android

Samsung ND10 OS-free netbook is crying out for Android

Looking to save a little money on your next netbook, but still want a brand-name machine?  Not especially enamored with Windows XP, and prefer to use Linux or something else?  Then Samsung may have the answer, in the shape of the ND10.  Ostensibly identical to the well-thought-of Samsung NC10, the ND10 was recently spotted in China offering the same 10.2-inch, Intel Atom N270 hardware but with no OS and  $50 discount.
