Samsung NC10 netbook looks to have top battery life thanks to super low power consumption


It’s been relatively well documented already that the Samsung NC10 netbook boasts excellent battery life – well over six and a half hours via the included six-cell battery. Chippy over at UMPC Portal was able to do some battery-drain testing on the device and found that it was able to sip a paltry five watts at the bare minimum.

This could very well be attributed to good engineering and high-quality electronics and components. We’re still waiting for it to become available (any day now) but it’ll run $499 with a 10.2-inch screen, pretty useable keyboard, six-cell battery, XP Home, 80GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.6GHz Atom processor when it actually ships.
