Samsung NC20 (21GBK)

PC Magazine
29 September 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 NC20 Review

29 May 2009
  • Summary: 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 faster than many (more expensive) laptops that we tried before.

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. The formula Samsung has settled on for this system works very well indeed; it's just what I've wanted to see since netbooks promised us affordable ultraportability but forced a few too many compromises.

Samsung NC20 netbook

Techworld
15 April 2009
  • Excerpt: It's marketed as a netbook , but is the Samsung NC20 really more a clever re-invention of the budget laptop in a lighter, cheaper less compromised form? It's worth mentioning this from the off because most reviews have compared this machine with other netbooks, the current majority of which feature 9 inch and 10 inch screens and sub-compact keyboards.

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. And the NC20 offers better performance than the Dell Inspiron Mini 12. When it comes to the U.S.

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. The NC20 takes many of its under-the-hood cues from the netbook world, offering comparably restrained specs like 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive and, most eyebrow-raising, a VIA Nano U2250 CPU. Seriously, a VIA?

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. The screen is brighter and crisper than most and makes Web browsing and casual gaming an absolute joy – gone is the endless scrolling up and down. Elsewhere, it’s very much a standard netbook affair.
