If you travel a lot, carrying a heavy and cumbersome laptop about with you isn’t always going to be ideal. If you are using your laptop ostensibly to surf the internet, then a better option may well be a netbook, which is a pared down laptop designed primarily for the web. My husband bought a...

I bought the Samsung NC10 Plus nearly two years ago, originally for college as it is smaller in size (10.1 inch) to my normal laptop, and claimed to have a long battery life (13 and a half hours), thus I wouldn't need to take my charger into college with me and search out empty plug sockets. Even...

After my white Asus Eee PC 1000H got stolen, I decided to replace it with a black Samsung NC10. The Asus and this Samsung are what is known as a netbook. It?s sort of a small, low cost laptop to let you surf the net, while you?re out and about. I bought it off Dixons.co.uk for £322 in December...
