10 inch notebook which one ?

Recommended Posts

Hi people I got myself a 15inch toshiba satellite that is great but its just to big and heavy for me to cart around all the time and the battery life sucks.

 

So I am after a little 10inch as I only need it for emails and web with a few other programs I use like office and so on.

 

My pick so far is the Samsung N150-JP03AU looks like a great little pc.

So if anyone has a better one that I should be looking at please let me know before I hand the cash over.

price range $600 max

 

thanks for any help guys

I have an eeePC 1005P, which is great.

And it is basically the same as the Samsung you've listed in price and components.

Except mine gets a little more battery life.

 

It's a great little netbook, as long as you don't ask too much from it.

Having said that when you have Word, Chrome (with a few tabs) and a PDF or two open, it works great.

Thanks for that I will have a look at the eeePC. I think a 10inch will be just what I need and the 10hrs of power is just great.

 

So am I right in that these small pc's do not have WiFi ? I will be using my little 3 usb modem thingy anyway but WiFi would be handy. So does Wireless LAN 802.11bg/n* work just like WiFi ?

Like could sit at my local cafe and hook up to there wiFi using the Wireless LAN ?

 

sorry for the dumb ass questions.

 

thx

These small netbooks are designed around being connected to the internet all the time. To this end, I don't think there's been one that hasn't had wifi.

Basically any one you purchase right now should have wireless b/g/n, which will connect to any wireless network you have access to, providing you're in range.

And yes, wireless basically works the same as your 3 wireless modem will, except it's all internal and the functionality to connect is in windows already.

I just bought a ASUS eeePC 1005P Pro last Friday from Online Computer for $438.

 

Similiar specs as the Sammy but Online Computer upgraded it to 2GB of RAM free which is always good and even better value for money.
