Samsung NC20 netbook review

Samsung had announced the launch of Samsung NC20 netbook, the successor of the NC10, in early 2009 and finally it has hit Indian markets. The Samsung NC20 is larger than NC10 yet the design is quiet similar (view the image and judge yourself).

The netbook has 12.1 inch LCD providing 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The screen is brighter and crisper than most netbooks in the market and it will surely make your Web browsing experience and casual gaming an absolute joy. Other feautres of the NC10 is the use of the more powerful 1.6GHz VIA Nano U225 processor and VIA Chrome 9 HC3 Graphics. It means that Samsung NC20 netbook can play Full HD (1080p) video without any problems. Another striking feauture is the high capacity battery. The company claims that once fully charged, Samsung NC20 can last for upto 10 hours, making it an ideal netbook for my next long flight. This has been possible due to the use of power efficient Nano processor.

However, I was a bit puzzled seeing the Windows button on the right as well as the size of the arrow keys and the function keys being slightly smaller than the rest.

Thanks to its full-size keyboard with optimal key spacing, the Samsung NC20 is a highly portable device that blurs the line between netbooks and laptops. In short, all these features at an attractive price makes Samsung NC20 one of the best all-round netbooks.
