Samsung NC20

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Finally, a mouthful of fresh air! No Intel, no AMD, that's what I really enjoy seeing from time to time, although I must admit I simply love AMD processors. Anyway, some people may be surprised, but these two companies are not the only CPU manufacturers on Earth, and now it seems netbooks using other brands to run all over the Web are getting closer. Today's topic - Samsung NC20.

The Samsung NC20 is expected to employ a VIA Nano CPU, specifically the 1.3GHz U2550. In fact, the press release is out already, so we only need to wait for a few days more, until the first units start reaching consumers. Unfortunately, I guess I won't be able to grab my NC20 anytime soon, although it looks pretty good, as you can see in the image above, and in the description below...

Damn, they don't have a Black flavor! Well, I guess I'll skip this one...or maybe get some paint to turn it into a black beauty. Anyway, we still have to check the first benchmarks of the Samsung NC20, so until more info about real-life behavior of this netbook emerge, there's one more item in my "watch out for" list...the Samsung NC20 netbook, of course!
