Samsung NC10 netbook: yes, that keyboard really is great

It doesn't take much to differentiate yourself from your netbook rivals, and once word got out that the Samsung NC10 had a far better keyboard than other budget ultraportables we've seen, it developed quite a pre-advance following.  Laptop Mag have spent some hands-on time with the NC10, and return with nothing that will really dissuade would-be buyers; the netbook feels just as fast as its Atom brethren, and that keyboard really is good.

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 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.

Albatron Slimline Netbook sized-up

Albatron Slimline Netbook sized-up

After seeing NEC's frighteningly expensive VersaPro VS netbook, all of a sudden Albatron's slimline netbook seems a little less impressive.  That's unfair to Albatron, though, as they've still managed to pack a whole lot into very little space; here you see it getting a piggy-back from the Samsung NC10, itself seldom accused of being a porker, while after the cut the Albatron manages to make a BlackBerry Bold smartphone look oversized.
