I’m currently looking at purchasing a Netbook and think that the NC10 will be my choice.
..Just need to decide on which colour to go for!December 11, 2008 at 9:57 pm #174873BritmanMember
You know resistance is futile 🙂 The white one looks good to me, you could even try to fool some by saying it’s a new Mac.December 11, 2008 at 11:46 pm #174870
No no, don’t listen to Britman – get a blue! 😀
Joking aside, colour choice is very personal thing. I think they’re all nice, but I picked blue because it’s my favourite colour generally. Plus I have a natural tendency to go for the most difficult-to-find variety of anything I buy. 😀December 12, 2008 at 9:10 am #174867
Black is clearly the bestest choice!!
Check out the where to buy page. Soz I have to spam that link around – it pays for the site bandwidth ;)!December 12, 2008 at 2:29 pm #174874
So in my first thread I’ve been recommended white, blue and black.. lol. thanks for making my decision making easier!
Reckon I’ll go hunting for blue if not, it’s going to be black.
Off to go see them ‘in the flesh’December 12, 2008 at 2:50 pm #174868
hehe sorry. We are only recommending the ones we have, tbh I think they all look pretty cool so you won’t be dissapointed which ever you pick!December 12, 2008 at 9:40 pm #174875
Had a scout around today for a blue. Only had one in stock at PCWorld but later found out it was faulty (purchased by a staff member and returned due to the battery dying).
Have reserved a black one from staples. Bring on Monday!December 16, 2008 at 2:36 pm #174876
Finally got hold of a black NC10! Unfortunately thinks it’s going to have to go back… The netbook looks like its already been used as the packaging is not fresh looking and on windows startup a named account appears.
I assume you need to go through typing your own details when it’s first run?
Imagine if this had been a present for someone! I would just wipe it and keep it but I don’t know if it was a customer return/ staff member using it for a while etc…December 16, 2008 at 3:29 pm #174869
Doesn’t sound good 🙁
Upon first run you should be invited to set up partitions, do the windows install routine stuff and then backup a restore position. Did you go through all that? There is an early post on the blog detailing the standard setup as I went through it.December 16, 2008 at 3:44 pm #174877
Thanks for the reply Jez.
The nc10 just booted straight to the windows desktop so it looks like its already used.
Also doesn’t have that ‘new stuff smell’ lol!
I’d class that as second hand!December 16, 2008 at 5:07 pm #174871
Ouch! That’s not good – did this one come from Currys as well|? They’re certainly not allowed to pass off a used product as new.
Hope a prompt exchange is arranged for you.December 19, 2008 at 5:12 pm #174878
Got a replacement! The screen is blotch free although the hard drive (I assume) is quite noisy compared to the used NC10 I had previous.
I’d rather not say where it was purchased from. Let’s just say it was a bricks and mortar store. Nice and easy to return if a problem crops up.December 19, 2008 at 5:24 pm #174872
Glad things are sorted for you. 🙂 Looks like you have a different hard drive model to the previous one.
I prefer buying from brick and mortar stores for that very same reason.
Have fun with your blotch-free NC10. 🙂
