Good netbook but not enough power to relplace your laptop
11 June 2010
Excerpt: 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...
Hard to find real fault with this versatile laptop - and pretty too!

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
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.
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
Excerpt: 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?
Summary: This is a very, very slow computer. Got one for my co-worker after my wife got an NC10, the smaller brother of this machine. This PC has a different processor from the NC10 - Via rather than Intel - and it's much, much slower.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this to replace my 5 year old 15" laptop. Impressed with the ease of use and speed and delighted with the size, weight and portability. A few minor gripes - fingermarks on the shiny lid and I'll have to buy a new pair of specs so I can read the small text.
