Samsung NC20 Netbook

samsung-nc20The Samsung NC20 netbook will be launching soon and is a step up from the NC10. The differences between the 2 are the processor and screen size.

The NC20 will have a larger display measuring 12 inches. Due to the larger screen a larger keyboard can also be made availabe. The NC20 will run with the Via Nano processor clocked at 1.3GHz. This processor speed is lower then an Intel Atom however, but this Samsung netbook will have a Chrome DX9 GPU which should take a lot of the strain away from the CPU. The netbook will be supplied running Windows XP (usually home edition for netbooks).
