For those in the US who have been wondering about the 12.1-inch Samsung NC20, it’s coming to the US later this month (March 16) and will be available exclusively through NewEgg, according to LAPTOP Magazine.
It will have a high-capacity battery (5900 mAh) and only be available in black. No pricing information has been released.
LAPTOP Magazine has also published a hands-on look at the NC20, and came away impressed with the performance of the VIA Nano-based device. They were able to play 720p High Definition (HD) video with the Windows Media Player 11, while browsing the web using Internet Explorer. The NC20 has a 1280×800 display which allows for 720p content.
It’s obvious that it pushes the envelope when it comes to what is popularly defined as a netbook with its larger display, and LAPTOP Magazine has published a few photos showing the size compared to the 10-inch Samsung NC10. The keyboard and touchpad are both larger than the NC10.
