not bad, but again, asus for 280 exists with very similar specs.

edit:
my bad, the screen is bigger here than the version I speak of. I guess they do have a competitive product here then.

So the differences to the NC10 are what exactly (I'm talking about the N110 here), a .07 inch larger screen and a 1% larger keyboard, big deal, although that does mean it'll be a damn nice bit of kit.
I just saw the title "mini netbooks" and thought "oh dear, they can't get smaller can they?

Agreed. Dont understand why they dont compare this against the IMPROVEMENTS (if there are any) over the NC10. I think this is actually a marginal product refresh and NOT a "new product launch".

x600 is too small in the "y". They really need to go HDTV1 ie x768. I was hoping that "gen 2" of netbooks would do that, not stick with the OLD screens.

Even just if they could support it while looking funny, I've come across software expecting 768 minimum in height (Pidgin's settings menu mainly) and I couldn't see what was at the bottom (turned out to be a button saying close but I couldn't tell if it had apply etc). That'd be useful.

It is really quite easy for them to put a higher density (smaller pixel pitch) screen into that 10" screen. Even existing screens could be used, but better if they made a new panel.

Fujitsu does 1280x768 on 10"
Panasonic does 1024x768 on 10"
Asus does 1366x768 on 11"

Samsung's 1024 x 600 on 10" is a poor show for a company THAT MAKES TFTs!!!

Fair 'nuff, just a point though:
The intel chipset doesn't support higher than 1024*768, I hooked it up to my proper LCD monitor and it gave me options of 800*600 and 1024*768.
