Manufacturer's product description

The NC20 comes as a low-power notebook boasting an ultraportable design. Combining a Via Nano U225 processor with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard disk drive, the NC20 is expected to provide its users with a Windows XP operating system. Thanks to its 12-inch display, the NC20 can be marketed as a different product, compared to all those 9-inch and 10-inch netbooks, most of which are powered by an Intel Atom processor, one of the competitors of VIA's Nano.
