Not new to the forums, but soon to be a new owner! Just ordered a white one from Amazon.com U.S.– choice over the blue a very difficult decision! Went cheapskate on the shipping, i.e. free, which for some reason seems to mean not just slow transit, but slow to get out the door: although said to be in stock, estimated ship date December 11. I’m guessing that’s overly pessimistic so as to present pleasant surprises, but a bit of delay should provide time to find an external CD box at a reasonable price. (Suggestions welcome on that!)
Well congrats on the purchase. I take it you mean an external CD/DVD drive? The two that seem popular with NC10 owners are one from Samsung (no surprise) and an LG slimline one. There are some threads in the accessories forum with more details. I will be adding them to the accessories page on this site over the weekend.
jez, thanks for the heads up on the drives. I’ll have a look at the appropriate forum.
No probs chap – any queries just ask or start a thread or whatever!
I have added some drives to the accessories page. I think the LG slimline is proving a popular choice.
Do you need the external drive for many things, or just basic software install?
The reason I ask is MS offers a downloadable version of office, as do other companies, and there are other ways of getting install disks on via a network
Psych, just following the principle of Ya Never Know (a.k.a. belt, suspenders, skewer through the navel). I ended up ordering the Samsung SE-S084B from Newegg. Looks as though it’ll arrive long before the NC10 from Amazon!
