Samsung NC20 now available

The 12.1-inch Samsung NC20 netbook PC first revealed late in February is now available for purchase, priced at nearly $550. The computer features an unusually large 1280x800 display resolution and otherwise class-standard 160GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM. It most sharply breaks from the class average is via its use of a 1.3GHz VIA Nano processor instead of a much more common Intel Atom CPU.

Otherwise, the large netbook includes a six-cell battery, which contributes to its 3.3lb weight, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality, a VGA output and three USB ports. The operating system of choice is Windows XP Home. The integrated graphics processor is the VIA Chrome9 HC3 IGP that uses a shared 128MB of memory. Rounding out the feature set are a 1.3-megapixel camera, built-in speakers and a 3-in-1 memory card reader. [via CrunchGear]
