I've been considering a Samsung NC10 for a personal purchase. Long battery life seems to be the attraction and the reviews I saw compared them favorably to the MSI Wind. Has anyone looked at one of these?

I have been looking at netbooks as a replacement to purchasing laptops. Our technical services group is evaluating a variety of netbooks including Acer, MSI Wind , HP and Dell. I have been using an MSI Wind and I have been very pleased with it's performance and battery life of 5 hrs. We mainly run two applications at a time on our computers and I find that the netbooks handle this fine. I am looking at netbooks with 2 gigs of ram, Windows XP pro, and a full 3 yr warranty. Also, with the purchase of additional wireless devices, we will need to increase our wireless network to accommodate the additional equipment.
In the past we have purchased Dell laptops and have been very satisfied with them, however we are beginning to replace a number of batteries.

RNESU is starting to think about next year's laptop purchases (and late-year purchases for this year). We are interested in hearing from other folks - what have you been buying - whether you've been happy with the make/models, whether you've had any problems that might help inform our decisions.. anyone going in a new direction next year?
We appreciate any suggestions/feedback that you provide.
Thanks very much,
Technical Support, RNESU
