REVIEW

The Samsung NC10 can only be described as a superb machine. As far as small laptops go this is one of the if not THE best all round small laptop on the market today. With an affordable price, ease of use and high specification smalllaptopsguide.com highly recommend this product. It sports an all colour (white or black available) design which is very clean and minimal.

The body comes with smooth surfaces and rounded edges which gives it a very nice feel. The Samsung NC10 offers a nice mix of portability, power, style and endurance. The port placement is well thought and nice and the overall positioning of the status indicators and the buttons is nice. samsung-nc10 The build quality is very nice too. It can easily withstand minor jolts without complaints. The shock resistance is however less as it has a normal hard drive and not a solid state drive. The body mainly made of plastic feels sturdy and durable. The Samsung NC10 sports a nice 10.2″ display which supports a native resolution on 1024 x 600 pixels. The display quality is nice and crisp. The brightness and contrast are almost perfect and the image reproduction nice. The display isn’t glossy which means better direct sunlight legibility, and the vertical and horizontal viewing angles are decent too, allowing an audience of about 3-4.

The Samsung NC10 also comes with a 1.3 MP webcam which has nice quality. The built in microphone also works good as expected. The speakers are located at the bottom of the laptop and produce clear, loud sound. The sound quality is decent and is good enough for serious music playback. The keyboard on first look, seems very similar to other small laptops available to buy. It is very spacious and is about 94% the size of a regular laptop keyboard. The key positioning and spacing is almost perfect. The keys offer superb tactile feedback and the key travel is nice. It is the best among all ultraportable keyboards, a blessing for touch typists. The keyboard feels superb, we would give it full marks. The touchpad is located just below the keyboard, and it is a bit too short for comfort. The horizontal length is adequate though. The touchpad is very responsive and has good sensitivity too. The surface is smooth allowing for nice navigation capability. There is a single long touchpad button below the touchpad which can be clicked on the left or right to indicate the left or right click respectively. The buttons offer nice feedback.

The touchpad is a Synaptics one, and hence supports some basic multitouch gestures which is expected to expand more in the near future. The touchpad also sports a vertical scroller on the right of the touchpad which is very useful when scrolling through long documents or web pages. The Samsung NC10 sports exactly the same configuration as any other netbook in that range – a Intel Atom N270 clocked at 1.6 GHz (with 512 KB L2 cache) , a 120 GB HDD at 5400 RPM, 1 GB DDR2 RAM, the graphics department is powered by the reliable old Intel GMA 950 offering 64 MB of VRAM. This specification is capable of handling all basic and casual / office tasks and can also handle multimedia playback. It can also manage light games at playable settings. The performance is more or less the same as other notebooks in its class. Performance shouldn’t be a deciding factor when you choose between different notebooks in the ultraportable category as they perform very similarly, what counts more are the other factors. The Samsung NC10 sports a whole range of expansion ports including 3 USB ports, Ethernet, Headphone and Microphone in, VGA out and a 3 in 1 and SD Card Reader. It also comes with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with EDR. The Wi-Fi reception is nice. The Samsung NC10 distances itself from the rest of the netbook crowd totally when it comes to battery life. It comes with a very powerful 6 cell battery by default which can power the Samsung NC10 for about 7.5 hours on a single charge with moderate usage. Not once did the battery life go below a minimum of 4 hours even with heavy usage. The battery life is simply amazing and is the number one reason why one should opt for the Samsung NC10 instead of the other notebooks. nc10

    Sony Vaio VGN-TT11M/N

    ESSENTIAL SPECS

    Price: Approximately £1200
    Size: 11.1 inches
    Weight: 1.29 kg
    Battery Life: Up To 10 Hours
    Processor Speed: Dual Core 1.2 GHz
    Hard Drive: 120 GB
    RAM: 2GB DDR2



    REVIEW

    This small laptop is super portable with an ultra sleek and sophisticated profile, the TT series is the ultimate mobile office. It provides you with everything you need to do business wherever you are. The chassis measures just 200mm x 279mm and is 23.5mm deep at its thinnest point. Being made from carbon fibre means the whole device weighs only 1.32kg. The lid’s 4mm thickness means the whole screen can bend and flex rather worryingly, but the carbon fibre feels completely rugged so, although we wouldn’t want to stress test it too much by flinging it around by the lid, normal usage shouldn’t cause any problems.

    Inside the compact casing of this mini laptop is an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 1.2GHz, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a Mobile Intel Series 4 graphics card, a 160GB Sata hard drive and a DVD rewriter optical drive. The inclusion of an optical drive, combined with the use of a full Core 2 Duo processor and a hefty amount of memory, is what really sets the TT apart from any similarly sized competitors.

    Given the rest of the high specifications we were a little disappointed to see a base level Intel vaiographics chip that shares system memory but, given the space and heat issues the engineers will have been dealing with, and the types of applications the target audience will be using, we can understand why Sony chose that route.

    There is the usual array of USB ports, a LAN port, 0.3-megapixel webcam, memory card readers and VGA output. There is also an ExpressCard slot and HDMI output. Along the front of the TT is a discreet collection of buttons for volume and mute, optical drive eject, Wi-Fi on/off and a user definable short-cut key.

    As well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the TT includes a built-in 3G modem to make sure users can connect at any time if they desperately need to check a vital email or update their Twitter feed.

    The 11.1in screen is impressive to behold, and Sony has used its X-Black technology to make sure nothing hinders the bright vibrant colours or sharpness of the display. Although the screen tops at a resolution of 1,366 x 768, there is an HDMI port which can provide full 1,080 HD output.

    Although the keyboard is slightly smaller than a standard sized keyboard, the layout and the isolated keys make typing, even at speed and for extended durations, no problem at all.

    Sony Vaio TZ190N

    REVIEW

    The VAIO TZ notebook features an 11.1″ WXGA widescreen display with Sony’s original XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology with white LED backlight. Sony’s innovative backlight technology offers lower power consumption for improved battery life and provides incredibly high brightness levels, amplifying colors and creating clear, crisp pictures that truly “pop” off the LCD. The result: an amazing 72% color saturation for deeper blacks, brighter whites, true-to-sony-vaio-tz190nlife color and razor-sharp detail. And, with the anti-reflective coating to minimize reflection while providing a wide viewing angle, you’ll enjoy a beautifully clear image from almost any angle. It’s the ideal way to present your work or watch a DVD when you’re on the go. The VAIO TZ small laptop features a thoughtfully redesigned keyboard that showcases an extreme attention to detail. Designed for ease of use and a smart, sophisticated look, the individual keys are slightly raised above an attractive piano-black bezel layer producing a user-friendly touch and feel to the keyboard that creates an improved typing experience. In addition, an extra support layer has been added below the bezel to increase the structural integrity of the keyboard and add stability to the keys, giving them an unwavering up-down motion and making for quieter typing. Details like these not only enhance the look and feel of the TZ notebook, but also reveal the design intelligence and innovation that only Sony can offer. Sony’s innovative power-saving technology combined with Intel Centrino Duo processor technology efficiently manages power resources to deliver an amazing 4 to 7.5 hours of standard battery life. And for those times when you’ll be on the go all day, rely on the optional large capacity battery for 6 to 11.5 hours of power to get you through.

    REVIEW

    We’re used to seeing feature-packed ultraportables from Sony’s VAIO range, but no recent small laptop has come close to matching the VAIO VGN-P11Z in terms of mobility. Weighing in at just 625g, it’s considerably lighter and more compact than all current Netbooks and ultraportables. Despite this, the quality is excellent, which it has to be to help justify the premium price tag. Available in a range of colours, you’ll find glossy and sturdy plastics in place. At 21mm in depth, it’s also one of the thinnest laptops we’ve seen.

    The 8-inch screen is more distinctive than the current crop of Netbooks, with the widest aspect ratio we’ve seen. It features a resolution of 1600 x 768 pixels, with images appearing considerably sharper than even the most expensive ultraportables.

    There’s enough space to work with a number of windows open simultaneously, although text and icons may appear too small for some users. With an integrated Intel graphics card, don’t expect great 3D performance. As a pre-production model, we weren’t able to perform benchmark tests, but power promises to match other ultraportables.

    Considering its size21s, the keyboard on this machine is outstandingly good. There’s not as much travel as on larger laptops, but the keys are responsive and move with precision. Isolated keys protrude through individual holes in the chassis, offering faultless usability.

    There’s no touchpad, however, as the ultra-widescreen layout leaves no space for a palm rest. Instead, the VAIO is controlled via a responsive pointing stick in the centre of the keyboard.

    Processing power is the biggest disappointment on this machine. You won’t find a ULV Intel Core 2 Duo processor, but instead an Intel Atom chip – similar to those found in Netbooks. Running at 1.33GHz, it’s backed by 2048MB of memory, offering enough power for office tasks. Storage space comes from a 1.8-inch 60GB hard drive.

    The biggest compromise made in the pursuit of the tiny dimensions is a lack of ports. The two USB ports are in keeping with other ultraportable VAIOs, but there’s no display-out, modem or Ethernet connection. Wireless connectivity is more impressive, with both 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in place.

    REVIEW

    The ThinkPad X200s notebook combines thin and light design with powerful functionality. It is reinforced with Lenovo’s signature carbon and glass fiber top cover roll cage to provide ultra-light design with extra strength to exceed the rigors of mobile computing environments, helping make it Lenovo’s lightest ThinkPad notebook to date. It is also equipped with up to 128 GB solid state drive storage, LED backlit displays, and ultra-wideband functionality as well as Bluetooth connectivity for an exceptional computing experience.

    The ThinkPad X200s is a 12″ screen ultraportable business laptop that is the lightest notebook offered in the ThinkPad series. With the smallest 4-cell battery installed the X200s weighs in at an amazingly light 2.47 lbs. Consider the fact many of the 7 to 10-inch screen sized netbooks are weighing in at 2.5 lbs these days and here we have a 12.1″ screen highly durable laptop with that same weight. The X200s shares all of the same rugged features found in the larger sized T400 series, such as a magnesium roll cage and spill proof keyboard, and more. It also has the comfort of a full-sized keyboard. For road warriors it uses an Intel Core 2 Duo low voltage (LV) procthinkpad_x200t1essor to provide better battery life (UP TO SEVEN HOURS) however, this means the performance is a little slow. The X200s also offers a bevy of wireless options and SSD storage to appeal to the business user types who worry about how they will connect to the Internet and how their data will be protected.

    REVIEW

    As far as an elegant small laptop goes the Asus EEE PC S101 is up there with the best and it’s sleek design is suited for male or female users. This ultrathin model resembles Mac Book Air and its originality comes from unusual colour of the cover. The colour of the S101 can be described as being somewhere between brass and coffee. The palm rest, or area around the touchpad, is made of brushed aluminum and besides its elegant looks it is easy to maintain this surface. Interestingly the hinges of the display are decorated with Swarovski crystals on each side. But this detail isn’t too noticeable so male users won’t get their macho image compromised, and its something that female users would certainly appreciate.

    The matte 10.2 inch display has the usual resolution for a panel of this size but the viewing angles are not as we expected from a model of this price range. Since the cover cannot be opened to degree like most netbooks can and in combination with poor viewing angles, this is a small laptop that won’t have a perfect picture on all occasions. For a product in this in this range only the best is expected.

    Because the ASUS Eee PC S101 is very thin, the VGA and network connectors had to be places at the back end of the laptop which we find to be more practical. This model doesn’t have a modem but has plenty of connectors – besides mentioned LAN and VGA it has three USB 2.0 connectors and two audio jacks (Headphone/OUT and Microphone/IN).

    The touch pad supports gestures so you can use more than one finger to achieve results. Keys below the touchpad for left and right click are made as one key and this is a design feature which some users may not like. When pressure is applied to the centre of this key nothing happens but it is hard to determine where exactly the left click end and the right click begins on the touch pad key. Keyboard is good and without any noticeable bendasus-eee-pc-101ing.

    In a line-up of unusual features that ASUS Eee PC S101 has, one has stand out. Most new features are oriented toward external design and looks but interesting feature is that there is a button on this model that has unusual function for a netbook: it raises frequency of Atom CPU from 1.6 to 1.68 GHz. This overclock is more symbolical than functional but it is very interesting option. Even when the CPU is overclocked, the S101 is just slightly warmer on bottom than most other netbooks.

    Since ASUS Eee PC S101 is a high-end model nothing less than SSD is suited for it. Reading performances are more than double of performances of older models. This is really nice result that can be noticed in real working conditions. Since 16GB or capacity is for most users too small, ASUS provided additional storage capacity with one 16GB SDHC card.

    The battery life is also excellent for a laptop of this size. Its six cells can provide really nice autonomy that can achieve eve5d21e86866n 5 hours usage in case you use netbook just for typing while display brightness is set to lower levels.

    REVIEW

    Apple take the design of their latest laptop into new frontiers with the launch of the new Apple Mac Airbook. The distinct design sets it apart from the rest of the small laptop market. Thinnest, lightest and yet the strongest is what describes the best of the new Mac Air Book. “Whether to or not to – take your laptop with you” – the usual dilemma is a thing of bygone days with the ultra slim Mac Air Book weighing just about 3.0-3.4 pounds and 0.76 inch thick. It comes along with an Aluminium chassis which is much more fingerprint resistant than the usual standard Macbooks. Apart from it the aluminium body lends the Air book a very sturdy and robust construction much in line with the kind of games Apple engineers likes to play with any of their products.

    The 13.3 inch display, fitted with a built-in iSight camera, mic and an LED-backlit display has certainly taken the innovations in laptops to a new level. The LED-backlit display is controlled by the ambient light sensor which automatically adjusts the screen brightness in responsapple-mac-book-air2e to the light in the room. The apple trackpad has also got quite a facelifts.The new Air book’s trackpad measures 5 inches diagonally making it comparatively larger than any of the Mac book’s trackpads and has features that lets you use three fingers rather than the usual two fingers.

    This multi-touch gestures enables the user to go forward and back within their Web browser history, and just like zoom-in and zoom-out features in the iPhone, one can do the same with Mac Air Book.

    Not everything is a ‘wow’ with the new Mac Air Book. Shortcomings identified are WiFi with very limited connectivity much slower than other Macbooks; standard hard drive of 80GB with the base and additional option of 64GB SSD hard drive at very expensive price.

    The single USB jack slot is yet another big limiting factor for people who frequently prefer to use more than one USB device simultaneously. The design of The Airbook is revolutionary, aesthetically appealing and targeted to only a segmented niche of laptop users willing to shell out extra bucks for something that’s scarce. But, certainly scoring low with people who wouldn’t like to pay for something that doesn’t deliver much beyond a pleasant experience just to the eyes.
