Netbook - Acer, Samsung or other?????

I am looking for a decent netbook and have shortlisted 2.
Budget £300, and am looking at the Acer Aspire One, or the Samsung NC10. Both are similar spec but prefer the matt screen on the slightly bigger Samsung.
Any thoughts, or alternatives?
Can find plenty of reviews for the Acer, but hardly any for the Samsung...

I have an Advent 4211 (MSI Wind.) It is nearly perfect in my opinion; it's battery life is my only complaint.
I knew the supplied 3-cell battery lasted just 2 and a bit hours but didn't expect to use a netbook that often. As it turned out, it has replaced my laptop. I'm looking for a 6-cell battery at the moment.

Have a look in Staples.

If you wanted something small, light, cheap to buy and very adaptable go for an Asus 701 (we have two) : £179.99 at Amazon or currently "free" from CPW with a mobile broadband contract.
