It’s Official: Samsung NC20 Uses VIA Nano

As if we didn't know already!

It was all but confirmed anyway, but thanks to an official announcement by VIA, we now know that the Samsung NC20 does indeed utilise a Nano CPU.

In addition to its 1.3GHz U2250 Nano processor, the 12.1in not-a-netbook boasts a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution panel, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. The usual array of WiFi, Ethernet and USB connectivity is present, too.

VIA’s specs claim a 6.5 hour batter life, which seems reasonable considering the figures boasted by the like of Asus’ Eee PC 1000HE. Nano is still an unknown quantity in notebooks, so we’ll have to wait and see how well real-world performance correlates with quoted expectations.

VIA doesn’t mention pricing or a release date, but various retailers have already done that for us so get your £380-odd ready for early next month if you’re interested.
