Hey guys. I can’t wait any longer for the NC20 so I’ve gone & ordered a Black NC10 from PowerC who are based in the UK. It’s a bit of a risk, I’ve never heard of them before, but their name came up when I googled an NC10 with 2GB of ram. Will let you know of my experience with them in a few days time.
I hope you paid with a Credit Card and not a Debit Card, as you will have protection in case the worst happens. Had a look at the site http://www.powerc.com, it turns out I used to buy Amiga stuff from them back in the ’80’s.
dixons sell the nc10 for Â£295, play sell ram for Â£15…. =Â£310.
or does the 2gb come with vista or something?
Nope I’ve just taken a look at the PowerC site, it comes with XP Home.
Looks like they just open up a standard NC10 and stick in a 2GB module. I wonder if they switch it on to check whether it’s working, and if so whether they go through the setup (name, partitions etc…), which can’t be redone.
I don’t think I can put this in a nice way, it seems like a rip off to me.
@Trune. Dixons price Â£309+ Plays Â£15 =Â£324. I wasn’t really happy about opening up the NC10, I’ve seen the You Tubes and read about the soft crews so I paid someone Â£25 to do that for me, it’s no big deal. Add the fact that most companies have marked up the original price to Â£320-330 (Staples,Amazon,Argos) and they don’t seem to be any different in that respect.
@Billy. I did pay by credit card incase something goes wrong. Nice to know the company have been around a while then (Amiga stuff – speaking of which, I’ll be putting plenty of old games on my NC10.) 🙂
google tells u how to get it for Â£292.
I got it from them for Â£280 but i believe that deals over now.
The screws arent soft mate, its nice and easy… 🙂 but fair enough.
Personally i think you’d get the ram from a local pc shop for Â£20 and they’d put it in for u for free.
