Samsung NC10 Plus
Advantages: Long battery life, attractive gloss finish, relatively large harddrive.
Disadvantages: Touchpad is not the easiest to use. Speakers have a slight tinny quality.
Depending on where you purchase this netbook from you are likely to very good deal. Compared with other netbooks in the same price range, this one has a longer battery life due to its 6 cell battery (other netbooks offer 3 cell) and a relatively large harddrive of 250gb (compared with many other netbooks in the same price range offering 160gb).
As far as a netbook is concerned, this does everything that you would want it to. It is lightweight and provides wireless access to the internet either at home or on the move. It has an anti-reflective screen which makes it easy to see even in bright sunlight. It also comes with Windows 7 starter and a trial of Office 2010 which would make it ideal for a student to take to university.
It is perfect for travelling as not only is it compact and lightweight, it has a webcam which can be used to make free calls over the internet via skype - perfect for keeping in touch with the family. It also has a long battery life (claimed at 13.5 hours) which means it can be used for long periods when travelling e.g. to watch a film without the worry of trying to find somewhere to plug in in.
Obviously as a netbook it is lacking the disc drive that you would enjoy with a full sized laptop, but this is not really an issue as most programs you might require can be downloaded online or put on a memory stick through one of the three USB ports this netbook offers.
All in all I would recomend considering the Samsung NC10 Plus if you are looking for great value netbook.
Summary: A cost effective, attractive alternative to a full sized laptop.
