Samsung 12-inch NC20 Netbook

samsung nc20 netbook

Announcing the 12-inch, fat-batteried NC20, Samsung has become the very first major netbook manufacturer to adopt the uber hot VIA Nano platform. The Samsung NC20 netbook fits in between netbooks powered by Intel Atom and other more powerful systems, bringing you a stellar combination of productivity, performance, and style.

The Samsung NC20 has specs that are decidedly un-netbooklike. In addition to the 1.3GHz VIA Nano ULV U2250 processor and a choice of XP Home, the specs are like that of straight laptop: a 160GB HDD (and an SSD option), 1GB of high speed RAM, a 6-cell battery with a promise of over 6.5 hours of operation, and a generously resolved 1280X800 LCD. The netbook also has uncompromised set of adapters, ports, and inbuilt accessories.

Including the six-cell battery, the Samsung NC20 netbook weighs 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg). As for one of the most important details, Samsung has yet to announce the price. Therein lies the rub: the Samsung NC20 netbook will almost certainly be expensive. Having said that, if they can chip away at the $650 rumor price by a c-note or so, Samsung might have a strong fighting chance.
