Samsung NC20 (21GBK)

PC Magazine
25 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Despite a slightly bloated price tag, the Samsung NC20 (21GBK) is the only netbook that has both a 12-inch widescreen and a full-size keyboard.
  • Pros: Big 12-inch widescreen. Desirable 1,280-by-800 screen resolution. Full-size keyboard. Performance is better than expected. Very portable. Big battery.
  • Cons: Bland design. A bit pricey for a netbook.

Samsung's NC20 ultraportable notebook

techreport.com
5 May 2009
  • Summary: In a market populated by shrinky-dink netbooks with low-res displays for under 400 bucks, hulking bottom-feeder laptops for $750 with severely compromised mobility, and svelte ultraportables hovering near the daunting two-grand mark, the Samsung NC20 is a revelation.

Review: Samsung NC20

Wired
28 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Our hands-down favorite computer of the year is in a category all its own. With its 12.1-inch screen, 3.3-pound fighting weight, outstanding battery life, and exceptional performance, the Samsung NC20 might seem like a new entrant in the ultralight notebook market.
  • Pros: 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 features, including 1.3-megapixel webcam, SD ca...
  • Cons: LCD is on the dim side. Looks won’t incite envy in the executive lounge — can’t we have cheap and sexy?

Samsung NC20 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
4 March 2009
  • Summary: The Samsung NC20 blurs the line between netbooks and low-cost ultraportables. While the VIA Nano processor isn't as powerful as a mainstream Core 2 Duo CPU, it provides similar if not slightly better performance than Intel's current Atom offerings.

Samsung NC20 netbook

wired.co.uk
29 December 2009
  • Excerpt: It's not quite a netbook, not quite an ultralight PC. Whatever it is, Samsung's NC20 is a dazzling feat of engineering: an extremely usable 12-inch laptop with epic battery life, impressive specs and a mystifyingly affordable price tag.

REVIEW: Samsung NC20

BCW
20 August 2009
  • Summary: Features Available in a choice of white or black, Samsung’s NC20 isn’t all about the VIA’s Nano processor. It offers a few other niceties. For starters it’s armed with a larger-than-usual 12.1-inch glossy display which provides a useful 1280×800-pixel resolution.

Samsung's NC20 netbook, why it beats the Dell Inspiron Mini 12

PC Authority
23 July 2009
  • Summary: With only Dell's disappointing Inspiron Mini 12 so far released, Samsung doesn't have a great deal of competition at this size. The NC20 has six-hour battery life, fine performance and a superb display

Samsung NC20 review

expertreviews.co.uk
22 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung's NC20 is one of only two netbooks here with a 12.1in screen. This means it's a little heavier than the 10in netbooks here at 1.5kg, but it's not that much bigger. The larger display means a resolution of 1,280x800 pixels, which is higher than the 1,024x600 resolution of the 10in netbooks in...
