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...
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: 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: This laptop is really good, I am absolutely happy that I have bought it! There is only one thing I really dont like about it: If you take out the accu you have to put something instead because the laptop will loose its balance a little bit...
Summary: I bought one of these 2 weeks ago, really smart portable netbook, it is worth the extra weight for the larger screen, it makes it more comfortable to view.The clarity of the screen is excelent and the glossy glass has caused no issues so far. The keyboard is slick and touch typing is no problem.
Summary: Pros: - More comfortable than most netbooks due to 12in form factor - Good battery life - Seems perfectly happy running google chrome, spotify, etc - Feels reasonably sturdy Cons: - Things like HD iPlayer are too much for it.
Not really a mini note book more of a small but perfectly formed laptop

Summary: Been looking for a new laptop for a while and came to the conslusion that a 10" screen was too small and the 15" laptop was too big to lug around. As far as I'm concerned there are 3 basic requirements for a laptop; light weight, long battery life and good screen resolution.
Summary: I wanted a small screen laptop/netbook for general surfing and occasional business use which could be easily transported to replace my aging 15.4" Acer laptop. I seriously concidered the NC10 but felt the screen was too small.
