Toshiba’s New Mini NB205 Netbooks

July 16th, 2009 Borya K Posted in Toshiba Mini NB Laptops No Comments »

Toshiba’s mini NB205 netbooks are out. Although they’re new to the market, these mini-laptops deliver quality, durability, and performance, and do so at a decent price (starting at just $329).

The Mini NB205 battery (5800mAh) actually lasts over six hours. Toshiba’s netbook also has special shock protection features to protect your data. They also have perhaps the most comfortable touchpads in the class. The keyboard, though non-standard, offers a feel similar to larger computers, with raised keys and separations. The new Atom processors (1.66 GHz Atom N280) offer better video playback than the older 1.6 GHz versions. Finally, these mini-laptops protect their appearance with fingerprint resistant covers.

The mini NB205 comes in onyx black, royal blue, sable brown, posh pink, and frost white. All models come with Windows XP. They also have built-in webcams and 802.11 b/g capability. I’d recommend spending the extra $20 for the better battery.
