Lambda-tek have notified me that they now have 1066 (at time of writing) stock of the NC10 in black.
They’re a bit more expensive than most other places, but with the recent price hikes almost across the board, they might be a good place to get one, if you dont want delays in dispatch etc. Their stock level is more or less realtime too, so you should be well assured that if they say they have some in stock, they do. In fact, when they run out of stock they dont take pre-orders and even recommend other shops to get the product!
Sadly it’s only the black in stock at the time of writing this, but I’m sure the white and blue are on their way there too… just waiting for the ship to arrive at the docks I’d imagine!November 29, 2008 at 1:12 pm #172141
I’d just wait out this rush at the moment. There’s been a lot of good press on the NC10 so word’s spread beyond the usual tech savvy circles. Prices will drop back below Â£300 once all the people who are unable to contain themselves for a couple of weeks have got their hands on an overpriced samsung netbook.
The Eee 1000h can be had for Â£270 which is now looking like a bargain in comparison. The NC10 is a good netbook but is certainly not worth an extra Â£60.November 29, 2008 at 3:22 pm #172139
I already have my NC10, and would agree with you although nobody can really say for sure whether the NC10’s prices will go down again. I have only seen people reporting that the NC10’s price has been changed by the retailers, this is in direct contrast with what usually happens where a product has an RRP – so it may well be that Samsung is saying, “can’t produce it for less, RRP has to go up to compensate”. Therefore the lucky first few (inc. me) to get their NC10’s for sub Â£300 prices may just be that – lucky!
This thread therefore is more for people not so sure about the potential of a price drop back to Â£300 (or less) and who want to get one before Christmas guaranteed, rather than potentially wait ages and ages for a pre order to arrive. The forum area is for Stock as well as price information, and seeing as though Lambda-tek have 1000+ units, it’s worth mentioning they have that many in stock! (so long as you’re prepared to pay a little more…)November 29, 2008 at 3:49 pm #172142
Dixons are selling it for Â£309.99. With the VAT discount that comnes to Â£300.70. From Tuesday if they reinstate the old vouchers it should be around the Â£285 to Â£290 mark.November 29, 2008 at 6:19 pm #172140
Which will be great. I bought mine from Dixons 🙂November 29, 2008 at 6:22 pm #172145limesmoothMember
I curse myself for my impulsiveness, which forced me to pay Â£329. Is the eee1000 really down to Â£270? That’s a pretty good deal.November 29, 2008 at 10:56 pm #172143
Yeah, below Â£270 in some places…
With the 2.5% of VAT on Monday you may even be able to pick one up or less that Â£260 at some point in the very near future. A bit of a bargain for that piece of kit but it is about to be superceeded by the 1002HA.November 29, 2008 at 11:09 pm #172147ezmanMember

yeah…but morecomputers haven;t got any in stock – yeah your impulsiveness cost Â£30…so what? I fit really bothers you pretend that you paid Â£30 to learn how to never be impulsive again. Bargain!November 29, 2008 at 11:43 pm #172146limesmoothMember
I was going to buy the eee100h before the NC10 came out – I’d much rather have the Samsung. Only joking re the impulse purchase – I could have had it at Â£299 but Misco couldn’t deliver for ages, so I really paid the Â£30 to get it now and avoid having to get it delivered. It was well worth it!November 30, 2008 at 1:38 am #172144Quote:but morecomputers haven;t got any in stock
160Gb windows version is in stock at Â£281. If you have a spare copy of windows or like Linux you can pick up the 160Gb Linux version for Â£263, that’s Â£47 cheaper!! Startling really considering the 1000h was Â£330 4 or 5 weeks ago.
I agree that the Samsung is a nicer machine and given the choice it’s the one i’d have, but IMO it’s not worth that much more than the 1000h.
I’m going to wait and see what Dixons do on Tuesday and then make my decision.November 30, 2008 at 5:41 pm #172148snowmanMember
saveonsamsung.com still have black in stock, with free next day delivery for Â£299.99.
Don’t pay more than that!
