Excerpt: "== Samsung Nc20 == I have a Sony Viao laptop but i wanted something lighter and more portable for travelling so I thought about getting myself a netbook. I had a look round the shops but they all just seemed too small and I had trouble even reading the text on the screen but then I seen an article on the Samsung nc20 which is the upgrade of the nc10 which I had looked at and thought was nice but too small. The big difference between them was that ...
Samsung NC20: The NC20 - A great alternative to full size laptops.
6 January 2010
Summary: When I finally gave up on my Dell Studio laptop, I decided to go for portability and price over looks and speed. After much hunting I discounted the host of standard netbooks available and went for the slightly larger Samsung NC20. The attraction for me was the larger than average glossy 12.1" screen, and the ability to upgrade the memory from the standard 1gb, together with past good experiences of the marque.
Summary: I've had the pleasure of using this netbook for the last month or so, and I love it. After a lot of research I decided to go for the NC20 as it matched all my requirements and was already highly recommended by a reliable source. This is an upgrade from the NC10 model, and uses the new Via Nano processor, offering superior performance over the Intel Atom used in most other netbooks. Samsung is the first manufacturer to use Nano in a mobile device.
Summary: Bought one of these for my girlfriend who is an academic and works in the library a lot. The screen size allows long use and can, after a fashion, just about let you compare two documents side by side. Keyboard is straight from the NC10- great quality, but they could have made more of the extra space. As people have noted before, the arrow keys are small, and the windows keys (either side of the spacebar) have been swapped for some reason.
Pros: Screen size, keyboard quality, battery life
Cons: screen looks washed out, battery manager only works out of the box with an admin account on XP
Summary: Netbooks are becoming more & more popular at the moment, primarily because of their size making them ideal to carry with you on the move. Samsung's latest offering the NC20, is the successor to the highely popular NC10, so what added extras does this offer? Well something you'll notice straight away is the larger 12 inch screen which is in fact the largest screen ever seen on a network & almost brings it into laptop terriority.
Pros: Lightweight & looks good
Cons: Glossy screen not visible very well in the sunlight
Excerpt: "...the newest model from Samsung following on from the very successful NC10. I own the white model but this machine is also available in glossy black. ==Reasons for Purchase== My main use of a computer tends to be for emailing and surfing the web. At £375 from Amazon this seemed expensive for a netbook - which this machine is- but I was hoping for a better build quality and for it to be quieter than a cheap notebook at about this figure. The ...
Excerpt: "I have just purchased a Samsung NC20 from Amazon. I originally planned on getting the NC10 after reading lots of fantastic reviews, but I was apprehensive about the size, being approx 10" screen. Anyway I heard about the NC20, and after seeing a HP notebook of the same size, I decided to wait for that instead... Amazon have had the white version in stock for a few weeks, but the Black one only came in this week. Customer service was excellent, ...
Conclusion: стильный и классный ноутбук. Монитор показывает отлично, разрешение приличное. Работает хорошо, хотя проц и одноядерный, но зато не греется совсем и не шумит. Батарея держит прилично, и не тяжелый. Вобщем ноут хороший, рекомендую. Кнопки тач-пада, правда, не очень уодбные, но сам он работает четко.
Conclusion: да, машина, что надо, монитор классный, сам нетбук работает отлично, нет глюков. Сборка и материалы очень качественные. Аккумулятор супер, клава несмотря на размеры, позволяет работать без опечаток. Для работы и учебы лучше не найти.
