Even though it is one of the world's lightest netbooks in its 10.2" class, weighing just 1.33kg with a powerful 6 cell battery, the NC10's innovative design is packed with the latest technology for maximum mobility and productivity. It also incorporates a range of practical features, like a normal-size, ergonomic notebook PC style keyboard, to simplify life on the move.

Class leading craftsmanship
A class leading design built to fit in with people's fast-paced and digitally interconnected lives, so you can do even more on the move - and still look good! The superb look and feel of its slim and elegant chassis is accentuated with a choice of colours and haptic styling.

An integrated 1.3 mega pixel digital motion camera makes it easier than ever to keep in touch with friends and family, using video-conferencing or live messaging. The camera combines the resolution and image quality of a still camera with the sustained high frame rates of a video camera.

'Normal' keyboard
Incorporates a normal-size, notebook PC style keyboard, for easy typing. Its ergonomic design and optimised key spacing make working and communicating a much more pleasurable and productive experience, with fewer errors and faster typing speeds.

Intel Atom processor
Incorporating Intel's smallest and lowest power processor, the Intel Atom processor, which is specifically designed to deliver an amazing Internet experience using netbooks. Based on an entirely new micro architecture, the Intel Atom processor increases energy efficiency to extend battery life, while delivering enhanced mobile performance and increased system responsiveness.

Fully featured for simple data sharing
Enables simple data sharing with a host of advanced connectivity tools, including a 3 in 1 memory card reader (SD, SDHC, MMC), 3 built-in USB ports, and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR* (Enhanced Data Rate), so you can easily transfer pictures, movies and data to and from virtually any modern camera, peripheral or audio-visual device.

10.2" Widescreen LED display
The NC10's 10.2" widescreen display is optimised to deliver a seamless visual experience on netbook and by using LED technology means that the screen is thinner, up to 33% brighter, and uses much less power than traditional LCD screens. Even the durability of the system is better, because there are fewer breakable parts.

Anti-bacterial Keyboard
Uses Silver Nano Technology to coat the keyboard with incredibly small, nano-sized silver ion powder, which makes it impossible for bacteria to live and breed. So, 99.9% of bacteria are successfully eliminated within 24 hours and the netbook remains bacteria free for even longer, creating a more hygienic personal computing environment.

 Great machine. I love it!

I bought the EeePC 701, and then moved to the 9" 900 model.
I thought the EeePC 900 was perfect in size, footprint and weight, but the keyboard was a little irritating for prolonged use, and the battery life at less than 3.5hrs (I had the 5800 battery) was not ideal.

The NC10 although larger, is more stylish and grown up looking.
It is heavier, but still acceptable and the larger (and nicer) screen means there is a larger footprint.

I used my EeePC everyday, and the NC10 with the far superior battery life (average 6.7 - 7hrs) has won me over, and I don't need to have it plugged in everyday.

The 10" screen is a good size, especially when it enables the keyboard to be a more useable size, and it is very bright and clear.

It comes with Windows XP Home, and coming from the Linux OS on my EeePC, it does seem a little slower, but overall it boots up relatively quickly for a Windows OS.

I have a black unit and it has the fingerprint-magnet shiny finish, but that can be fixed with a microfibre cloth if it bothers you. I'm OK with it as it adds to the machine's good looks.

This is a great all round machine and I love it.
Stylish with great keyboard and battery life.

 Nice little laptop!

I don't own one but we sell them at our work and they are really nice machines. They look nice, and it doesn't feel too cheap but performance wise it's a very popular model.

And regarding the recovery CD, the machine may not have a CD/DVD slot but you can easily use this by attaching an external DVD drive which is why you get the CD in the box. Although what would be better if the recovery disk file was already on the HDD and you could put it onto an SD or a USB drive. Either way though, it's nice you actually get one as most laptops (mainly Vista) all have an inbuilt recovery which at some times can be quite an inconvenience.

 Cool little Machine

I recently purchased one of these as a replacement for a faster, Vista laptop - and have to say that I am really impressed.
It runs XP - which seems like a retrograde step - but because XP is less demanding - its actually quite nippy as long as you don't push it too hard or expect to run 3 or 4 apps at the same time.
The battery life is really good as well - around 5.5 hours on a full charge is pretty good! It is well built and does not feel at all cheap.
Only downsides are a lack of disc drive and the screen is not glossy or particularly hi-res - if you are not fussed about these - its a perfect little machine which I wholeheartedly recommend!

 Make sure you know what you are getting with a netbook

All netbooks give you a recovery CD without a CD ROM drive. As netbooks are designed as portable secondary computers you have the choice of; accessing the CD from another computer over a network, transferring the CD to a usb or memory card or buying a usb CD drive.
These devices are fantastic but make sure you understand that they are not a full desktop replacement. They are devices cheap enough to replace so you dare take them out and about and portable enough to use anywhere. They are great out of the box for email, internet and word processing. They have enough memory, hard drive space and processing power for other tasks, but again you do not have the option of transferring from CD right out of the box. You wouldn't want to convert video or edit large photos on them regularly and they are not powerful enough to game with.

I own an EEE pc with a 7" screen, it proved its worth to me on a recent 3 month trip to greece in terms of its weight ( I could carry it everywhere at less than 1kg), limitations were HDD space which meant I had an army of 8gb USB sticks, this machine appears to have my asus model beaten, 8 hrs of battery life ( not sure how accurate that is, I would investigate before buying) but my eee only has approx 3 hrs anyway, 160GB HDD easily beats the paltry 4gb of my eee, and a much larger screen at over 10" .. this machine seems to press all the right buttons, at a close price to my eee which was about £220, plus it has the atom processor, id go for black if this is going to be a mobile machine for you, they can get put in some unusual situations + it also has blue tooth built in ... looks good to me !!!!
