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?

In the face of an identical hardware platform, Toshiba's netbook fails to bring a unique point of difference.

Toshiba NB100 - HardwareZone.com

 

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.

Expert review by : Elias Plastiras (goodgearguide.com.au)

Toshiba NB100

 

An 8.9in, WIndows XP-based netbook

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.

Toshiba NB100 review

 

While we're feeling suffocated by the influx of just-in-time-for Christmas netbooks, only Toshiba is adding anything new to the smaller of the two common form factors, the 8.9incher. This is good: on the size versus convenience battlefield in which...

Toshiba NB100-11R notebook

 

With over 20 machines available, it's fair to say the netbook party is in full swing, but it's still missing one or two of the big players. Toshiba is no longer one of them, having recently launched the NB100, and it's definitely a case of better late...

Tiny, sturdy, well-designed interface

Noisy keyboard, slightly cramped

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...
