A few days ago, I mentioned that the “Special Edition” Samsung NC10 (NC10-11PBK) that’s available exclusively through Amazon.com had a price drop (down to $469) and had started shipping to those who pre-ordered it.
The NC10-11PBK has a 6-cell high capacity battery that boosts the battery life up to around 9 hours or so, along with a larger touchpad than the typical NC10.
Something else that it has is a slightly different display, and it’s caused some confusion.
Early reports were that the glossy anti-reflection coating is a matte display instead.
So is the display glossy or is it matte?
I contacted Samsung directly, and this is what I was told:
According to our marketing team, the screen on the NC10-11PBK is a glossy screen. Due to the anti-reflective nature of it, it appears to many users as a matte screen. It comes down to user opinion on whether or not the screen is glossy or matte, as it could easily be referred to as either.
