Trying to set it up now. Good news is I don’t see any blotches on the screen.
One quirky thing is some of the letter keys produce numbers, like when i tried typing “msconfig” i got a whole bunch of numbers and wrong letters. I rebooted now so I’ll see if that helped. Working on trying to get McAfee off and install NOD32, then I’ll get it connected to my wireless and start installing more stuff.
Pictures to come.
EDIT: Got the number thing sorted already, didn’t notice the number lock was turned on 🙂January 21, 2009 at 10:01 pm #180817
You may want to disable Num Lock Bootup in the BIOS. 😉January 21, 2009 at 10:25 pm #180810jdog29Member
I too just got my black NC10 and had the same issue. Finally I posted why I was getting such numbers and a user directed me to that exact thing… Num Lock was On in Bios. Works great now. LOLJanuary 21, 2009 at 10:55 pm #180811
I didn’t turn the BIOS feature off, just disabled it on the keyboard… Boots up fine without re-enabling it.
I’m loving this thing so far. Had to get used to the smaller screen but I think I’m used to it already.January 22, 2009 at 2:00 am #180812
Well, I’ve been using this thing for most of the day. I got it around 3PM and it has been on since, I just got done watching an episode of The Office and still have 45% battery left. Pretty nice.January 22, 2009 at 2:55 am #180818
I hope I can say the smae thing when I get mine… I can’t really choose which color though…
If I get…
white=Matches my Wii/Ipod
black=Matches my old laptop/DS/palmtop/cruzer micro/headphones
blue=Doesn’t match anything. 😛January 22, 2009 at 8:26 am #180809MattJessopMember
Blue every time !January 22, 2009 at 5:56 pm #180813
Wow, I just checked Amazon’s site again and the price dropped to the regular $449 for the black one. I paid $469 two days ago. I knew they used to have a price guarantee and recently did away with it, but I emailed them voicing my disappointment anyway and asked if there was anything they could do for me.
They responded with:Quote:Hello from Amazon.com.
Thanks for contacting us about the recent price change on “Samsung NC10-14GBK 10.2-Inch Netbook (1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, XP Home) Black”. I recognize you have a choice of retailers and appreciate that you prefer to order from us. Unfortunately, we do not have a post-order price guarantee.
I’ve reviewed your order and see that the price change was significant and you just received this item from us.
Under the circumstances, I’ll make a one-time exception for you and issue a refund for the price difference in the amount of $17.03. You should see the refund in the next 2-3 business days.
Please understand that I’m issuing this refund because of the exceptional circumstances, and I’m doing this for you against our standard policy.
Nice going Amazon, I’m impressed.January 22, 2009 at 6:44 pm #180819
Wow, that associate really pulled some strings for ya. 😉January 22, 2009 at 6:48 pm #180814
Indeed 🙂 Luckily I have a habit of checking the site I order from for a bit to see if something like this happens. If I would have waited, I wouldn’t have known it dropped today and probably wouldn’t have been credited.January 23, 2009 at 5:06 pm #180815January 23, 2009 at 5:39 pm #180808kinkbmxcoMember
Thanks for the pictures! I ordered a white one and never looked back!January 23, 2009 at 5:43 pm #180816
I just can’t stand white. Most of my electronics are in black or a dark color, and I didn’t like the color of the blue one, so black it is 🙂
Apple forever ruined the white look for me with electronics. The first time someone comes up to me asking “Hey is that one of those new Apple laptops?!” I’d scream and punt a kitten.
