Review Toshiba NB520-108 Netbook

 

Sound miracle. As a counterpart to its AMD Fusion NB550D sister

Solid feel; Constantly cool case; Well laid-out keyboard; Touchpad with good feedback; Good sound with subwoofer; Good battery life; Low energy consumption

Fan constantly perceptible and restless; Low performance; Long charging time of 4:30 hours; TFT not anti-glare; Limited brightness for outdoors; Few connection ports

Why does Samsung manage to keep perfect control of its netbook fan while Toshiba on the other hand does not?

Toshiba NB520: Sounds Great and Performs Well

 

Just a few days back we saw the ASUS 1015PEM, sporting a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor. It still wasn't the best in terms of performance. So what does Toshiba's NB520, which boasts of almost the same specs, have to offer? Design The NB520...

The Toshiba NB520 is priced at Rs. 21,490 which is just about right for its performance and features. The speakers sound great and the performance is a lot better thanks to the extra RAM and let’s not forget the sleep utility feature that helps save...

Toshiba NB 520 review

 

The Toshiba NB520 has the same basic specification that you'll see on a lot of netbooks - a 320GB hard disk, 1GB of memory and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600. It's not exactly a processing powerhouse, with it only achieving an overall score of 11 in our...

A great media-playing netbook, despite its low screen resolution

Toshiba NB520

 

Toshiba's latest 10.1in netbook might sport the same old Atom internals, but it's the most stylish and best-sounding netbook we've reviewed.

Great speakers ; Stylish design ; Good build ; Comfortable ergonomics ; Affordable

Limited connectivity ; Basic specifications ; Average, sub-HD screen

. Essentially, the NB520 feels and looks more premium than its basic specifications and sub-£300 price would suggest.

Toshiba - NB520

 

Netbooks haven't moved on much recently. Their place has in part been usurped by the iPad 2 and Android tablets, while their general specifications have languished in a sort of limbo as other laptop computers get ...

The Toshiba NB520 is a standard netbook on the inside, except for a superb pair of speakers. On the outside a lovely keyboard makes for good user ergonomics and the colour scheme simply looks attractive. In a sea full of similar products, Toshiba has...
