Well, I no longer have to think about which NC10 to buy, where to buy it, or when to buy it. The UPS just arrived and my husband handed me a nice little box. I am now the owner of a baby white NC10!!!
I’m so happy! Can’t wait to fire up this baby!
I’m sure I’ll be back to ask some questions.
Happy, happy, happy!

It’s a very nice gift 🙂
Feel free to ask questions !February 13, 2009 at 7:50 pm #183726
Well, I just plugged it in to charge up the battery, which I understand takes 2-3 hours. Will need to figure out the next steps so I can start using it. Is there a particular link I can read besides what came in the box? Is there anything in particular I should consider or do beyone the standard installation, etc?February 13, 2009 at 8:03 pm #183731OUTATIMEMember
My advice; remove the bloat-ware immediately.
I cut it right down to the Samsung essential programs.
Dump McAfee immediately, personally I’d recommend Avast!, it’s a great free anti-virus program.February 13, 2009 at 8:11 pm #183727
Thanks! I’ll take all the advise I can get. 🙂
Another question while my Nc10 is being charged up: I had read about blotches. How do I check to see if mine has any blotches?

Yay! So you got your NC10! Am suprised it wasn’t a pink one – being Valentines and all ;)!
and thanks for your helpful replies TCMuffin, I’ve lifted some of your great tips and put them in the FAQ! Hope you don’t mind!
Cheers.February 14, 2009 at 5:07 pm #183724
Not at all, Jez, happy to help 🙂February 14, 2009 at 5:13 pm #183725
How about DriverMax for keeping drivers up to date?
“I also use DriverMax. “DriverMax allows you to download the latest driver updates for your computer. No more searching for rare drivers on discs or on the web or inserting one installation CD after the other. Just create a free account, log in, and start downloading the updates that you need. You can also export all your current drivers (or just the ones that work ok) to a folder or a compressed file. After reinstalling Windows you will have everything in one place!”February 14, 2009 at 6:04 pm #183721jezMember
yeah I totally meant to add that!February 14, 2009 at 9:33 pm #183728
No, not pink! 😉 I’m happy with the white NC10.
My husband is doing the tweaking on the NC10 right now as I type on his BIG laptop. Just got rid of McAfee. He asked that I post this for everyone (but maybe you already know):
There is a program that will clean malicious entries in your registry, called Malwarebytes anti malware. It’s freeware and you can find it at malwarebytes.org. There is also a free registry cleaner that cleans the registry but does not take out malware and can be found at eusing.com. There’s other free stuff there.
I’m sure I’ll have other questions.

Make sure that you have decided on the size of the c: (for the operating system) and d: (for data). You can only do it once and it seems 3rd party re-partition softwares are hit or miss.February 15, 2009 at 5:45 pm #183729
I’ll have to let my husband handle this.
I’m happy to report my NC10 doesn’t have any blotches and is very quiet!
Still tweaking. 😉
