Samsgung's NC10 was king of netbook battery life, but is starting to look long in the tooth. A follow-up, the NC310, does not plan to disappoint. Eleven hours is the claim: good enough to get a day of work with the 3G modem or WiFi on without dimming the 10" display too much. [Akihabara News]

It only has a gig of RAM, as per Microsoft's licensing requirements for XP, but there's no word on CPU. I should hope that all those extra electrons affords us the better, newer Atoms.

Now, that's a foreign model: it's a sibling to the NC110, reviewed by Laptop Mag today, which has exactly alike specifications but a slimmer, plainer design. Joanna Stern rates the battery as hitting 7 hours under usable conditions. [Laptop Mag]
