Until I saw this forum I was considering the highest speced AA1.
However after reading this forum and playing with one in “the flesh”, the following points in this order sold the NC10 to me.
1) 6 cell battery with very good life
2) Keyboard and trackpad design – I find the rocker button design easier to use than the AA1 buttons ( and the scroll function is handy too ! )
3) Ease of memory upgrade if required – remove a screw etc
– no need to take the machine apart
