samsung-nc20-3Samsung 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.

  1. 12″ screen isn’t a netbook in my book, though I’m happy to see Via putting out a competitive chip, I’m surprised it isn’t a DVI output, wasn’t that one of the “requirements” Intel put on use of the Atom chips, along with 1024×600 max resolution?

  2. The rumored price was $600+, which also reinforces the idea that it isn’t a netbook.

    I think a system like this is meant to compete with the Asus netbook that are over $500 and are thinner and professional looking (forgot the model number, but it has the internals of a 1000H)

  3. I know it was a typo, but I wish the NC10 was available with a SSD
