Was just cruising around and found this forum. I just had my nc8000 about a week ago. PM 1,6/512/40/MR10(64Mb) (Yes, we don't have 128mb model here in finland.. at least yet. Unless you wan't to buy nw8000 with FireGL T2.. that's a bit too much.. and +500 euro).
Rao Hamid was asking about Centrino & Wireless features. Well, the machine is "almost" a centrino. It lacks the Intels wireless 802.11b card BUT has instead a 802.11b/g(!) card. So if you didn't know Centrino-brand requires Intel Pentium-M, Intel Chipset and _INTEL_ WLAN (which isn't yet to be found as 11g standard). So it is a "Centrino".
Battery life is pretty good. I got it to last a bit over 4 hours and in this time I actually watched 30 minutes of DVD and played about 20 minutes of Colin McRae 3 and rest of the time used it for surfing and more common use. So pretty impressive.
Call Of Duty runs in 1400x1050x32 with extra detailed graphics and 2xAA about average of 35-55fps.
3DMark03 gave 1937 points with 1024x768, 2xAA and Anisotropy of 16.
Well, this isn't a gaming machine but it runs games if you don't have the need for 6xAA/16xAF (or maybe this will run with 128mb?..).
The Chipset supports only 4xAGP (MR10 supports up 8x).
Generally I like the look and feel of the nc8000. I'd say it has a very good keyboard and the dual pointing device is also a positive thing. The arrow keys could have been bigger (are smaller than the other keys) because there is space left on the sides of the keyboard. This actually looks very business like. It isn't ugly nor especially beautiful. And it weights about 3kg which I think isn't that much for a "desktop replacement".
Ooh, and doesn't make that much noise
And the SXGA+ display is very nice. Wide viewing angles, sharp and bright.
Hmm, what else.. ask something
. It lacks a PS2 port but maybe I'll manage without it
. Also has free multibay slot for extra optical device, hard drive, floppy disk drive or battery. I think these are pretty expensive so maybe it's better to get an external DVD+RW or hard drive in case you need one.
Now I have to go sleep but maybe I'll post some more later.
And asking is allowed
