Review Toshiba NB-100 Netbook

 

Netbook from Toshiba. The fight for netbook-market shares goes on

Quiet even under load; Option of Win XP or Ubuntu; Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR; UMTS/3G

Glossy display; Unsuitable for outdoor use; Loudspeakers are too quiet

Netbooks are defined as being small, light and mobile so that you can take them everywhere. Well, almost everywhere. What's the glare display doing here?

Toshiba's answer to the mini-notebook trend comes in the form of a typical 8.9-inch model that sports similar specs as its competitors.

A tiny Toshiba netbook which doesn't cut corners on features

Stylish design ; Good value ; Sturdy build

Cramped touchpad

Toshiba NB100

 

Toshiba's NB100 is a Windows XP--based, 1kg netbook that is a little over-priced but well built and with some good functionality. It's one of the best...

1kg, Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, screen tilts all the way back

Cramped keyboard is hard to type on, screen is susceptible to reflections, touchpad buttons are uncomfortable, Sleep-and-Charge is not enabled by default

The NB100 is a little overpriced, but it is a solid little unit with Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, which are very convenient while travelling. It could use more RAM and a solid-state drive; a version with Linux installed would be pretty sweet, too.

Can Tosh take on the established netbook players?

With its mini-me styling, comprehensive software suite and easy to use operating system, it's impossible to dislike the NB100. Now some of its rivals are concentrating solely on larger, 10.2-inch Netbooks, it's a refreshing change to see a return to...

We see how Toshiba's entrant into the burgeoning netbook market holds up.

On the outside, the lid and a section of trim around the base are finished in the aforementioned Champagne Gold, which does look very attractive. It's high-gloss but does an excellent job of disguising fingerprints. This is nicely offset by the matte...

The Toshiba NB100 has its good points, such as its impressive TruBrite display and good battery life, but the cramped keyboard and lack of Bluetooth support are big letdowns

Attractive glossy finish on lid ; Good screen

Plasticky feel ; Small keyboard ; No Bluetooth

Conclusion The Toshiba NB100 has decent battery life and a good-quality screen, but it's let down by a cramped keyboard and lack of Bluetooth support. With so many high-quality netbooks vying for your attention at the moment, the NB100 doesn't really...
