USA magazine reviews Samsung NC20

Thanks to our readers who sent us this link to USA laptopmag website review of the Samsung NC20.

Whilst the review is for the Korean version, the article does have a few interesting points in there:

The battery
The Korean version comes with the 5200-mAh battery, which lasted a respectable 4 hours 17.  The USA NC20 will have an even larger capacity battery at 5200-mAh.  Our guesses put this just under 6 hours.

The price
The price will be somewhere between $500 – $600.  As we’ve seen so far prices of the NC20 have been slightly higher than the NC10, so we’d expect the price to be closer to the $600.

The review conconcludes with fantastic praise for the NC20….

“The Samsung NC20 blurs the line between netbooks and low-cost ultraportables. While the VIA Nano processor isn’t as powerful as a mainstream Core 2 Duo CPU, it provides similar if not slightly better performance than Intel’s current Atom offerings. And the NC20 offers better performance than the Dell Inspiron Mini 12″

In fact all reveiws  so far have praised the NC20 over the rest of the competition and with the laptop expected to be released in the US next monday (16th March) we expect the NC20 to be a bigger sales hit than the NC10.

As always we’ll keep updating our suppliers page with stockist updates in the US and around the world.

    So the Samsung NC20 was supposed to be available today through Newegg.com, but it’s no where to be found on their site. What happened? Was that a false rumor?

    I emailed Samsung directly, and they expect the NC20 to be released at the end of March to beginning of April.

    Yep false rumor as always. In the other post someone said late March middle of April now. I picked up a Samsung X460 in the meantime to keep me busy :) Can’t wait for the NC20!!

    Hi, I just wanted to point out that you mentioned the same mAh for both Korean and US batteries. Perhaps you meant to cite a different spec for the US version.
