Samsung NC10 - The Best Netbook So Far?

By Nicole S. Peters

A netbook is a streamlined mobile device designed for the Internet, so you can stay connected on the go. But which model out there is the best Netbook? We look at the top three netbooks available on the market in January 2009.

Samsung NC10

The Samsung NC10 edged the Acer Aspire One and Asus EEE PC 1000H because of its better keyboard. The NC10 is a new model in the market and Samsung is a reputable brand. However, a Linux version is not available yet.

The Samsung NC10 has a battery life of up to 6 hours and a keyboard that is roughly 93% of a standard full-sized laptop keyboard ensuring that you can easily IM, email and check out all your favorite websites. By sprinkling incredibly small, nano-sized silver ion powder on the keyboard, Samsung has made the NC10 system bacteria free for even longer. Currently, only three colors are available but more are planned.

This is probably the best netbook money can buy. It is also more attractive and more durable than both the Asus EEE PC and Acer Aspire One series of netbooks - the 'missing Apple' netbook (no announcement from the 2009 MacWorld Expo)!

Asus Eee PC 1000H Netbook

The Asus Eee PC started it all. As of this writing, there are over a dozen and a half EEE PC models ranging from 7" to 10" screens and in various eye-catching colors. The Asus EEE PC 1000H is one of the best selling models for Asus. For almost a full year, Asus was the king of netbooks until everybody else caught up.

The Asus Eee PC 1000H is their top model but it is heavier than the Samsung NC10 due to its larger battery capacity. This netbook has a battery life of up to 7 hours and a keyboard that is roughly 92% of a standard full-sized laptop keyboard but unfortunately it has a poor layout.

There are two operating systems currently available: Windows XP & Xandros Linux. Additionally, it is larger in dimensions than other 10 inch netbooks - a slight negative considering these netbooks should be minimal in size and weight for portability.

Acer Aspire One Netbook

The Acer Aspire One is probably one of the more affordable netbook in the market today due to a recent price cut. This would make a great family laptop used by teenagers who just want to surf the web, check emails, do their homework, listen to music, and watch YouTube videos. It is also great for commuting in public transportation or long trips to college or visiting friends. It also makes a great second or travel 'laptop' for business users. Because of its global distribution network, the Acer Aspire One is the best selling netbook in the world.

The Acer Aspire One has a battery life of up to 5.5 hours and a keyboard that is roughly 89% of a standard full-sized laptop keyboard. Two operating systems are currently available: Windows XP & Linpus Linux. There are five colors available for everyone including the most popular Rose Pink for the female demographic and Sapphire Blue for the male demographic.

If low price is what you're after, then the Acer Aspire One is the netbook of choice. It's not as sophisticated but it offers good value though not battery life.

Well it's known that if you want a fast computer, you're gonna need a fast operating system. If you want to get technical about which specific motherboard and everything else to use then I guess we can save that for another blog (haha) but what a computer essentially needs to run quick is a lot of RAM. With today's technology, we have stock computers running with 4 gb RAM for the speed of the computer. The hard drive and all simply resembles the amount the computer can store in its memory. But, I'm pretty sure that we all know the basics of the machine :)
