Samsung NC20 Unboxed, Compared to Dell Mini 12

Samsung NC20 If you are curious about the new 12.1 Samsung NC20 ultraportable, your curiosity is about to be partially satisfied. Sascha over at has posted a couple of videos showing the NC20 being unboxing and taking a look at the general build quality.

The NC20 has generated a lot of interest due to it being one of the first netbook/ultraportables to be powered by VIA’s new 1.3GHz Nano U2250 CPU, and VIA’s VX800 platform.

He confirms quite a bit of the information that came out at the end of last month.

In addition, he has posted several photos comparing it to the Dell Inspiron Mini 12, the only other real competitor in its class, and a good comparison, since the Inspiron Mini 12 is based on an Intel Atom. From the preliminary benchmarks, the Via Nano seems to be holding its own or even doing better than similar Atom-based systems, even though it’s running at a lower clockspeed (1.3GHz versus the Atom’s 1.6GHz).
