Special Offers – Week of January 10th

January 4, 2010

Happy new year everyone, hopefully you’re all as warm and well as we are here, despite the icy conditions surrounding Komplett towers. The big thaw is on, everyone is back to work and with it we’ve got some special offers we thoughts you might be interested in… for the “back to work” vibe.

This week, we’ve got a gorgeous display, a graphics card and a netbook bundle on offer. We won’t stall any longer, here are the products themselves.

Samsung 21.5” LCD Syncmaster 2233SN:

Samsung’s flair for design is something that comes up time and time again when we talk about displays. The fact is that they’re not the cheapest when it comes to hardware, but the kit is well worth the asking price when you factor in how good it looks.

Samsung’s Syncmaster 2233SN is a 21.5-inch, widescreen display with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080, which should mean you’re not hampered at all when it comes to viewing high-definition content or playing games. The response time is low at 5ms, so sports fans and gamers should be well catered to.

The case is a glossy black, tapering to a transparent bevel along the bottom of the display, with a nice, slim stand to prop the whole thing up. It’s relatively simple, but gives the whole affair a classy kind of a feel that many other displays don’t quite manage.

Samsung’s Syncmaster 2233SN has been dropped to €144.99 this week, which isn’t a bad old deal at all.



New EEE to Outclass Other Netbooks?

October 13, 2009

Rumours of a dual-core Intel Atom processor have been doing the rounds for a while, but now those rumours have spread to encompass Asus’ EEE PC, which people are saying could be the first netbook to boast a dual-core Atom.

Asus EEE 1000HA

According to Liliputing Asus’ EEE PC 1201N and 1201HA ‘leaked’ specifications include the fact that it boasts fully 3GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive, to say nothing of the fact that it boasts the newly finalised Wireless-n standard. As you might have guessed from the first paragraph though, we’re particularly interested in the news that the EEE 1201N is said to boast a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N330 dual core processor… and it’s Nvidia ION based, like Samsung’s N510.


Netbooks Responsible for Revenue Decline

October 12, 2009

Times have been hard for those invested in the notebook market, and it’s starting to look as though the humble netbook is responsible for the decline in revenue in the notebook space.

The fall in revenue in the portable space is due to a combination of factors, the two most prominent of which being the startling popularity that netbooks have managed to gain, and their lower prices. According to ChannelWeb, the falling price of netbooks means that this could well be the first time year-on-year decline in revenue in the portable space.

(more…) Netbook Roundup

October 7, 2009

Hey there all, in the spirit of getting all of the relevant Back to School stuff together for people looking to buy specific scholarly equipment, this piece was meant to go up last week, when those heading back to college would have found it most useful. Of course, I was sick during last week, but hopefully this will still be of use to some students caught in netbook limbo.

Basically, we hear an awful lot of questions from week to week about what netbook will be the best for someone who wants X or Y, and the fact is that for most users, there’s relatively little in the difference between most netbooks. You’ll find that they, for the most part, boast similar processors (the 1.6GHz Intel Atom), similar amount of RAM and HDD space, but beyond that there are differences, so hopefully we can illuminate anyone looking to pick up a new netbook in this piece.

Samsung NC10:

Samsung’s NC10 has been enduringly popular in a way that very few machines can be. It’s price has remained reasonable for the hardware and the combination of a solid, good-looking build and it being a reliable device.

The NC10 fits the stereotypical netbook ideal, with a 10.2” display. It boasts an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM a 160GB hard drive and its own Bluetooth adaptor, which makes it easier to have your various mobile devices chattering to one another without involving a tangle of messy cabling.

For us the NC10 pretty much epitomises what a netbook should be. It’s relatively tough, reliable, boasts solid battery life, a built-in webcam and has won an absolute raft of awards for the combination. It’s not too heavy, weighing in at 1.3KG. Almost as a parting thought, it boasts a 3-in-1 card reader, for those who like to take straight from the camera and upload on the go 🙂

For those concerned about the keyboard (which will be most of the note-taking student population), it’s worth pointing out that our country manager managed to get a little over 90,000 words out of his NC10 in a month. With that wealth of experience behind him, he informs us that the keyboard is very fine indeed.

The Samsung NC10 is €345 and you can check out more specifications and pictures on our product page for it.
