Samsung N110 - Best Netbook To Date!!!
I just received my Samsung N110 yesterday, and so far it is everything I had hoped for and more. Before purchasing the N110, I had a Samsung NC10 Special Edition from Amazon.com. It was a wonderful little computer, but knowing that the N110 was coming out soon I decided to ship it back to Amazon - and boy am I glad that I did. I know that the differences between the N110 and NC10 SE are very minimal (discussed in more detail below), but the subtle differences in the N110 seem to make a difference. Biggest differences between NC10 Special Edition and N110 1. N110 has glossy screen, and NC10 SE is matte. At first I thought I would not like a glossy screen, but after using my new MacBook Pro 15" for the past few months, my mind has been swayed. 2. Ingratiated graphics: N110 has Intel 945 GSE w/ 128 MB VRAM vs NC10 having Intel 945 GSE w/ 64 MB VRAM. 3. Different chassis. Edges are rounder on the N110, along with the strip of red around the edges. I was skeptical before seeing the red strip in person, but now that I have I find it to be much easier on the eyes then the chrome strip around the NC10 SE. The rounder edges of the N110 also give it a more modern look and feel. Also, one of my TVs is a Samsung w/TOC, and I like it just fine. The only negative I could see people docking the Samsung for is its price. It is slightly higher then its competitors, but for that extra money you get a Netbook with an excellent build quality that cannot be found on its competitors (no squeaks or creeks or keyboard flex!). As far as why I picked the N110 over the NC10 SC, my thoughts are that I mind as well get the newest model, especially if it is less expensive that the current SE. Hope this insight is of some help.
