Good netbook but not enough power to relplace your laptop
6 November 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: 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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
