The white NC10 seems to be plentiful. No blue ones yet. Should I hold out for the Blue or pull the trigger and go for white ? Any thoughts ? Does anyone really care ?November 25, 2008 at 12:12 am #171275techguyoneMember
If I lived in moonbase Alpha I’d go for White
otherwise the Blue (or black) look gorgeousNovember 25, 2008 at 1:04 am #171278Chief JoeMember
I’m in the same boat. I intend to get my son a blue NC10 for Christmas, but I am not the type who wants to wait around until the last minute. At first I was going to get him a blue Aspire One, but upon further research I can’t justify NOT spending a few more bucks for a much better made (and looking) machine. White is not an option for him, either!November 25, 2008 at 3:37 am #171272denniszenMember
I saw the white; it seemed girly to me, so I didn’t buy it. I didn’t know, though, that the store would sell all units in one day. Still holding out for the black. From the press release in Samsung site, it doesn’t sound like they will have black soon. It just mentions white and blue models will be sold in the States.November 25, 2008 at 4:18 am #171274SerendipMember
I wanted the blue, but didn’t want to wait. Between ebay coupon and livecom rebate, $325 and having it NOW pushed me to the white. Add in the complete lack of fingerprints, and I’m so glad I did it.
I don’t see it as feminine, if anything it looks like it wants to be a Mac. 🙂November 25, 2008 at 5:24 am #171276undoMember
White was a no brainer for me, but I’ve owned white bikes, white cars, white MacBooks, keyboards, mice, etc., and I liked them. White keyboards are definitely easier to see in low light and I didn’t want to be always wiping the smudges off a glossy blue top case.
I read a comment somewhere from someone who sent email to Samsung asking about the possibility of a black NC10 in the US. The response was that they’re unsure but it might possibly be offered next year. I might have considered black, but only if it had a matte finish. Black does look a little more business-like, but looks terrible if it’s all smudgy, IMO.November 25, 2008 at 7:53 pm #171273fuelsciencMember
I called Samsung yesterday (Monday), and the person I talked to said that the blue NC10s had shipped to sellers on November 14 and should be available soon. I find it a little hard to believe that it would take 9+ days for retailers to start shipping. I preordered blue from Amazon on Oct. 19. Hoping to get it soon.
I would suggest calling Samsung. See if you get the same story I got.
