I started with an eeePC 701, which I bought as a internet browser and as a way of getting to know Linux better.
Soon after, I bought the eeePC 900, which I bought to use more as a mini laptop, and loaded XP Home onto it. Not long after, I started experimenting with a number of linux distros, which is why it is now multiboot XP and three linux distros.
One thing that bugged me with the eeePC’s was the battery life – about 2.5 hours on a standard battery. I did buy a higher capacity battery which gives 4.5 hours, but it is not flush with the back of the netbook.
That is when I saw the awsome battery life of the NC10. I read review after review, and really thought there must be a catch, but I am pleased to report that the battery really is as good as the reviews.
I use the netbooks for browsing, email, communicator programmes, music, radio, ebooks, etc
I never go far without one, especially when travelling.
I couldn’t see me using the eeePC’s as main PC 100% of the time (only 95%), but the better keyboard and screen of the NC10, makes me think that I could use it as the only PC.
One thing I was surprised at though, was the weight of the NC10 compared with the eeePC900 + big battery, the NC10 is noticably heavier in the rucksack.
It all kicked off when I thought I’d lost some photos on an SD card whilst on holiday. I decided I needed to be able to backup photos whilst away from home and also to view and lightly edit them on a decent size screen. I bought an Archos 605, which although was an excellent viewer, the OS was so flaky, it had to be treated with kid gloves. It had to go. I was then looking at an Acer Aspire One, an Asus 901 and was on the point of buying the Asus 1000, when I discovered the Sammy. Very pleased with it so far, it does everything I need and more. Even the wife seems impressed!! Whenever we’re off on our travels, the Sammy will come too. Could just do with a worldwide mobile broadband card, lol.
