Can’t believe came up with top 5 best netbooks without Samsung in the list. So out of touch.November 22, 2008 at 2:43 pm #170573jezMember
lol good old PC World! You get the impression they are a little slow moving. I guess the group is just too big and takes time to communicate things through.November 22, 2008 at 3:10 pm #170579TheRingMember
Well to be honest i wouldnt trust a thing that store comes out with, they are interested in selling products which are easily recognisable. Asus EEE is a long established in this market so between them and acer it would be obvious that they were in the top 5. If someone said have you got an samsung nc10. you would get puzzled looks, but if you said have you got an eee then people go arr yes indeed. Anyways they sell packard bell equipment says it all (;o)November 22, 2008 at 4:11 pm #170583BeckyMember
Just want to point out that PC World dot com is a US magazine completely unrelated to the UK retail chain of the same name. 😉November 22, 2008 at 4:26 pm #170581dougpMember
There’s also a reason why PC World is going out of print to digital distribution only – they suck.November 22, 2008 at 4:29 pm #170574jezMember

As someone pointed out in another post, it almost seems like the US press has some sort of embargo on the NC10.. almost all the news is from the UK.November 22, 2008 at 7:17 pm #170575

This is so true. It’s like there’s a news blackout, or the US media is out of touch again. I’m posting fro the U.S. and I would say nobody is writing about it. Being a former journalist (now a copywriter), I think they are seriously missing out on an amazing product.November 22, 2008 at 8:28 pm #170586NcssryEvlMember
I think the biggest problems is that the NC10 has just come out to the USA.
A week ago, it wasn’t on Newegg, now it is.
I’ll put my money not on an embargo, but rather the lack of availability when the article was written.November 22, 2008 at 9:55 pm #170584FreddyMember
This is probably because the Samsung NC10 is brand new. PC World haven’t even reviewed it yet have they? If they make a new list after they have tested the NC10 I’d bet NC10 would be number 1.November 23, 2008 at 12:08 am #170585hefMember
it really does sound to me like they have under delivered stock on these likes, that is probably why there is little to no US press on them, nobody even has them to sell yet.November 23, 2008 at 2:50 am #170576

Reviewers in the States have had more than 3 weeks to review it, but haven’t done so. They’re just late in picking up new trends, but will come through eventually.November 23, 2008 at 12:53 pm #170578donkaMember
Samsung have only recently started selling laptops in the US as well so a lot of people will not be aware of their products.November 23, 2008 at 8:30 pm #170577

The Samsung NC10 was launched more than a month ago to consumers. That means that reviewers would have gotten the netbook earlier for review, as is usually the case. See link below. Samsung even downplayed the launch of the netbook in the press release, burying the story. Amazon.com has been selling this also a month ago; only did Newegg come into the picture. I’m just thinking maybe it;s also Samsung’s fault for not creating noise about this, when they should deservedly so, especially since by next week, it’s going to be Thanksgiving and predictions point to netbooks being the most popular item to buy. Now, without Samsung in minds of people because it has not been written bout, the company would have lost a golden opportunity.
