Default Samsung NC10 vs Archos 5

I've recently ordered a Samsung NC10 netbook, with a 10.2 inch screen, 1gb RAM (soon to be upgraded to 2) and 160gb HDD. I've also been considering the Archos 5 250gb, as I've always wanted an Archos since I saw my friends 705. However, at nearly 275, it's a lot of money to waste on something if it turns out to be superfluous seeing as I have the NC10. Most of the features on the Archos are better on the NC10, such as the wifi and video playback. The larger screen on the Sammy can be viewed as an advantage or a disadvantage, as the Archos is more portable. Also the Archos has more storage (but i doubt I'd ever fill it completely). The Archos doesn't have Bluetooth, but the NC10 does, so I could tether my phone if I can't get wifi.

I'm wondering whether it would be worth getting the Archos as well, not instead of, the NC10. I've read some pretty bad owner reviews of the Archos, and nothing but praise for the NC10.

So would the Archos be worth it?
