Samsung NP-NC20

 

Netbooks are all the rage these days, and some companies, like Dell, are practically giving them away.

Large screen for a netbook ; Good battery Life

A bit beefy ; Pricey for its class

This lumpy netbook's biggest selling points: It's screen and good battery life. But you could buy a full laptop for less.

Samsung NC20 review: Samsung NC20

 

Samsung NC20

Bigger screen than standard Netbooks; new Via Nano CPU.

Larger size sacrifices some portability; very basic port selection.

The 12-inch Samsung NC20 holds its own in the first Netbook showdown between Via's new Nano CPU and Intel's popular Atom.

Samsung NC20 (21GBK)

 

There's a lot to love about the Samsung NC20 (21GBK) netbook, including a big screen and a full-size keyboard.

Big 12-inch widescreen. Desirable 1,280-by-800 screen resolution. Full-size keyboard. Performance is better than expected. Very portable. Big battery.

Bland design. A bit pricey for a netbook.

The Samsung NC20 has created a category all its own: hands-down favorite computer of the year. Sure, this netbook won't ever be called sexy, but...

Slaps the netbook market upside the head with the holy trinity of notebook virtues: performance, portability, and play time (nearly four hours on a charge). VIA Nano processor runs circles around Intel Atom found in most netbooks. Full complement of...

Samsung NC20 Review

 

The Samsung NC20 is a good Netbook that is comfortable, light and has a good battery life – the three fundamental qualities that many of us seek. Its Via Nano processor can totally stand against Intel's 1.6Ghz single-core Atom and its hard disk is even...

Samsung NC20 Review

 

The Samsung NC20 is a 12.1" netbook and larger brother to the 10" NC10. The NC20 offers a larger nearly-full-size keyboard, large 6-cell battery, WXGA resolution display, and the VIA Nano platform. Since the last VIA-based netbook in our office was the...

Samsung NC20 User Review

 

The user guide is an animated .SWF document pre-installed on the hard disk. I would have preferred a normal PDF file

Solid construction with good styling and attention to detail ; Bright and sharp WXGA display ; Good sized keyboard including dedicated Page Up and page Down keys ; Generous touchpad ; Good hard disk capacity and speed ; Three USB ports and media card...

Glossy display (but some people see that as a good thing) ; No WWAN option (at the moment) ; Slightly uneven brightness on display ; An Express Card slot would have increased the upgrade options

I concluded my NC10 review with the remark "However, there will still be a demand for the ultra-portables from those people who want their only notebook to be as small and light as possible." Is the NC20 as, Samsung say, a large-screen netbook or is it...
