Recently, I got a new Samsung NC108 netbook and therefore thought to share a brief description of it along with some hands-on pictures. One thing I’d say is that netbooks are highly portable, light weight, have a great battery life and are true value for money. I’m not reviewing Samsung NC108 in detail because it’s pretty similar to Samsung N148. However, it is a new redesigned model with some improvements in specs and features.
The Samsung NC108 is crafted to deliver a stylish look, sturdy and high-quality design, despite being budget-friendly. It is ultra compact in size, weighs just 1.18Kg (less than N148) and is powered by the upgraded Intel N455 Atom processor.
It boasts a 10.1” anti-reflective display, now enjoy movies and images that are clear and picture perfect, even in bright light. Its energy efficient LED display and 6 cell battery may offer an extensive battery life of up to 10.7 hours*.
The keyboard has an ergonomic design with a slight texture, plus it is a Full Island keyboard with optimised key spacing for easier typing that looks awesome.
The I/O ports on the left and right side carries a precision cut edge design that stands apart from others. It is cleverly styled with an integrated hinge. That means the screen blends together seamlessly with the keyboard, which makes adjusting the screen easier.
A quality webcam is integrated, that is ideal for video conferencing and video calls.

I installed Windows 7 Professional on the NC108. Even with just 1GB RAM, it delivers a good performance that is perfect to surf the web wirelessly, watch multimedia content such as videos, photos, etc., enjoy music, chat and check the documents on the go.
