Samsung has posted the user manual for its upcoming NC20 notebook. With its 12 inch display, the NC20 is a bit large to be called a netbook. But since the laptop is in the same family as the successful Samsung NC10 mini-notebook, I’m still intrigued by it.
As expected, the manual confirms that the NC20 will sport a 1.3GHz VIA Nano CPU, making it one of the first laptops to use the new processor which draws more power than the VIA C7-M or Intel Atom CPU, but also provides more oomph.
The Samsung NC20 will also ship with a choice of hard drive or solid state disk, a 12.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 6 cell battery, and optional 802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth. It also has an flash card reader, webcam, 3 USB ports, and a VGA output. The notebook measures 11.5″ x 8.5″ x 1.2″ which makes it big for a netbook, but still pretty small for a laptop.
No word on how much the Samsung NC20 will cost yet, but if the company can keep the price low, this computer could be worth checking out if you’re looking for a machine with a larger keyboard and screen than a typical netbook.
