LAPTOP Magazine Updates 10-inch Netbook Face-Off

Netbooks LAPTOP Magazine has updated their 10-inch netbook face-off with a couple of new models, as well as well as updated models of previous netbooks they have reviewed.

In the original face-off, the MSI Wind U110/U100 and the Samsung NC10 came out on top when it came to battery life tests.

This time around, the HP Mini 1000 and Samsung NC10 came out on top with keyboards (no surprise, the NC10 is The Netbook when it comes to the keyboard).

Netbooks/Ultraportables compared:
– Acer Aspire One 10-inch
– ASUS Eee PC 1000HE (Update of Eee PC 1000H)
– HP Mini 1000
– Lenovo IdeaPad S10
– MSI Wind U120 (update of Wind U100)
– Samsung NC10

A major focus of the Eee PC 1000HE was battery life – that’s the main selling point in addition to the chiclet-style keyboard, and it came out on top in the tests. The 1000HE and the 10-inch Acer Aspire One came out on top as far as value.
