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 ...
Summary: I am very impressed with the Notebook. The only disappointment was that I had to load Office 2003 on to it. It wasn't included in the deal. Apart from that, it means all my expectations. Well done!
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: This Mini-notebook is just amazing.. I've had Dell & Sony laptops before.. this performs just as well, but half the weight, the battery lasts approx 4 hours and although alittle tinny, the sound is better than my previous Sony. I can make calls via skype without requiring a headset and all my programs run perfectly. The Atom processor is fast enough and thank God, it had XP and not the dreaded Vista, so all my applications ran as fast as I required.
Summary: I previously had an NC-10 and thought that was great...but this netbook is even better. The larger screen is well worth the extra cash to avoid excessive scrolling. The machine is fast and screen resolution is excellent. It will even run Windows 7 !
Summary: So far the only issues I've had with this laptop are minor - it's taking a while to get used to the keyboard - a longer right hand shift would be very useful. And the fingerprints... arrrgh the fingerprints! (The shiny outer case is covered with my greasy paw marks.) Otherwise, it's light, but sufficiently large enough to make everyday use convenient. I prefer it over the lighter, but tiny, 10.1 inches.
Summary: Have been using this for a while now. Great little netbook. It isn't really a full laptop replacement, it is a little slovenly to boot, or load apps etc, lacks a bit of grunt for more intensive work. However, it is a netbook, primarily aimed at light duties, like web browsing. It is great for this. Battery life is fairly good. chassis is nicely built, screen is great. All in all, it is a great purchase, I'm very happy with it.
Summary: Netbook arrived on time and has been working perfectly with no issues! A very handy 12.1' screen size so not too big like the 15.4' and not too small like the 10.1'. Very easy to carry around due to light weight. I thoroughly recommend this netbook especially if you're only going to surf the net and download.
Summary: I would like to give this product 5 stars because I am very happy with it but there is just one too many (minor) drawbacks which prevent it from getting a perfect rating. I bought this machine for portability i.e. lugging through airports and around town. I don't use it for playing games, just the usual business stuff. I knew that a 10" netbook would be too small for prolonged periods of work and hoped that a 12" would be better.
Summary: This computer was an awfully big disappointment for me. Before I had bought it, tried to read as much reviews about this product as I could and found most of them absolutely positive. So I decided to buy one. I wish I wouldn't have done it. Total money wasting as I don't really use it since then. It takes 2 minutes to log in to googlemail, no way to use skype and other basic things just to mention some examples.
