A couple of people have emailed us to mention that there is a “Special Edition” 10.2″ Samsung NC10 showing up on Amazon.com for American customers.
It’s listed as an “Exclusive” Amazon.com model.
– Samsung NC10 NC10-11PBK (Amazon) – $499.99
– 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
– 1GB RAM
– 160GB HDD
– Windows XP
It’s exclusive and a special edition because of this:
– 6-cell High Capacity Battery – 5900mAh (Up to 9.4 hours of continuous run-time)
– Larger touch pad than other NC10 models.
– Anti-reflection gloss coating for the display.
In my view, it would be worth it just for the battery. The larger touch pad is a nice extra touch, as is the display, especially for only $50 over the normal price.
It remains to be seen whether the battery, display, or larger touchpad make their way into future NC10 models.
