Booting time is 33 seconds, similar to the Sasha’s test video.
The Nano uses Out-of-order strcture which is different from the Intel Atom’s In-orcer structure. Maybe it’s the main reason that Nano can compete Atom with Hyper Threading.
I also noticed that NC20 can play the 1080P WMV9 video smoothly, however when switch to YouTube HD, the performance is unacptable. Could it be the HW video acceleration’s help?February 18, 2009 at 11:13 am #184217
Hello, Spitwroot here from the above notebookreview post.
The video is strange because vimeo works.February 18, 2009 at 1:03 pm #184209jezMember
Welcome Spit, afaik you are our first NC20 owner! Like I’ve just posted on the netbookreview thread I’ll summarise some of your thoughts and link back to that original thread :).
I now bizarrely find myself craving an NC20 even though I have no need for one. Although it would enable to me to contribue to more discussion – hmmmm!February 18, 2009 at 3:41 pm #184218
Technolust is a crazy thing.
Thanks for the warm welcome. Keep the questions coming 🙂February 18, 2009 at 5:06 pm #184210
Spit what is the camera model you used to take the pics of NC20?
I don’t notice any barrell distortion (fish eye effect), color distortion or under/over exposure typical for amateur pics. Either your cam is very good or you are experienced in photography.February 18, 2009 at 7:36 pm #184219
Well observed summertan. I use a Canon 40d and I am experienced.February 18, 2009 at 8:33 pm #184211
Sorry this is off topic but as experienced photographer, what is the way to minimize barrel distortion/fish eye effect with the cheap cams. Mine is Canon PowerShot A570 IS. It’s a cheapo but does better job than the ultrasmall cams.
By barrel distorion I mean when you shoot a rectangle and it appears ‘swollen’ with bent sides on the pic.February 18, 2009 at 9:05 pm #184220
By standing further back and using the closest zoom. Do not get close and use the widest part of the zoom if that makes sense. Also get a better camera 😉February 19, 2009 at 1:59 am #184216HanzoMember
Hey Spit, I got a question:
The VX800 chipset supports maximum 4GB memory. Does NC20 have only ONE memory slot?
Thanks a lot, Spit!February 19, 2009 at 2:06 am #184212
I know the ‘do not shoot from small distance’ part. What do you mean with the other part? Should I use the minimal zoom (no zoom at all) or the maximal zoom (maximum magnification of the image) ? Someone told me before that I have to use middle zoom, in the middle between minimal and maximal.February 19, 2009 at 10:40 am #184221
Only one memory slot.
I would use minimal zoom. But it could be different for comapct cameras. I use this forum for photography:February 20, 2009 at 6:01 am #184213
Is the glossy screen of NC20 a problem outdoors or indoors?February 20, 2009 at 11:14 am #184222
I love the quality of te screen with the LED backlight, its the 1st ive seen. Not tried outside yet, will do over the weekend.February 20, 2009 at 2:21 pm #184214
Is it comfortable to type on NC20 when you sit on the couch with body upright, not leaning back and screen maximally opened? Does it open enough so you can easily see what you type without need to tilt your body backwards or tilt the whole machine forward so your viewing angle gets closer to perpendicular to the screen?
I love to do work on my couch instead of chair so I hope NC20 doesn’t require special position to see the screen well. I remember NC10 required a little tilting of the machine in order to see the screen well – it was just too short and the opening angle a bit too little.
