how easy it to switch ram?

i know it'll be a push, but if possible, can you let me know how cs3 or vegas works on it?

cheers with envy :)

sure no problem

ram and hdd are easy, 3 screws to expose both, swap the ram out and remove caddy and sata adapter (it turns the power and data connections through 90 degrees) and bobs your uncle :)

wow looks impressive!

Dont know if you saw my last question, but could you please let me know what the speaker quality is like and if there is a sim slot (probably behind the battery)

Thanks

Ion chipset, atom processor, 1gb ram, sata hard drive. Google it if you want to know more. Very similar to the hp. I would choose the samsung over it, because I like their N range. Refer to the epic NC10 thread to see why.

It looks very nice OP. Feel a little twinge of regret for going for its little brother.

The 510 is new as well. You've got to ask more specific questions, which parts of the specification? Same processor/ram/graphics. Same/similar screens/wireless/ethernet. Probably different batteries. Not much in it, but I would still choose the samsung.

just trying to get a few things setup and hopefully ill be away, the only thing win 7 didnt pick up was something to do with the chipset (available from nvidia) and the wifi wasnt recognised other than that it was plain sailing

as far as sound goes I dont find it much different to my old nc10 tbh, maybe a little bit more bass but its never gonna be great, its certainly not bad tho, if i recall its a bit louder than nc10

Thanks mate, I will hold out for the mini 311 then. I currently have a mini 700 and the speakers are great and compared to my friends nc10 there was a massive difference.
As I mainly use my netbook whilst travelling with work its a big consideration for me
