Toshiba NB305

 

Let's talk about love. When you love something, you love it for what it is, not what it isn't. We love netbooks; we don't care that they can't really do games, or HD Flash video, or any media encoding to speak of. We know what we want—all-day computing...

Incremental improvements to solid platform; great battery life; sleep-and-charge USB port

Win 7 Starter; no Bluetooth; wonky keyboard (especially space bar); expensive

As a vanilla netbook—one without Nvidia’s Ion netbook gaming platform—the NB305 performs well. It ships in two configurations: a $350 version with Windows XP, a smaller hard drive, and no sleep-and-charge USB port, or the $400 Windows 7 Starter version...

Toshiba Mini NB305-N600

 

The Toshiba Mini NB305-N600 ($380 as of April 5, 2011) comes from the higher end of Toshiba's two-part netbook family. Nothing if not eager to meet your netbook needs, Toshiba offers its two basic models--the Mini NB300 and NB500 series--in a total of...

Nice keyboard for a netbook ; Good-looking chassis and screen

Full of preloaded junkware ; Dismal performance; don't expect good multitasking

While handsome with an unusual metallic chassis, the Mini NB305-N600 is a subpar performer that costs more than comparable, better-performing competitors, including its own sibling, the NB505-N508GN.

The updates aren't major and there are better netbooks out there, but the Toshiba mini NB305-N600 has all your basic netbook needs for one low price.

New aluminum design. Small and compact. Dual-core Atom CPU. One of the best keyboards in the netbook category. Roomy touchpad and big mouse buttons. Affordable

Yearning for a higher resolution. Battery life not as impressive as its predecessor

Toshiba mini NB305-N310

 

The Toshiba Mini NB305-N310 is the slightly lower-end version of Toshiba's Mini NB305-N410 netbook, but design differences and the NB305-N310's ability to run Windows XP make this Mini a better choice than the NB305-N410.

Nice big touchpad with two distinct buttons ; Great keyboard with big letter keys

Function keys and Tab key are somewhat small ; A little on the heavy side

The Toshiba Mini NB305-N310 is a professional-looking netbook with a comfortable keyboard and a huge touchpad, but it's not great for watching Web videos on.

Toshiba Mini NB305 Netbook Review

 

Intel's Atom N270 processor – and the surrounding limitations on specifications – had a lot to answer for: over a year of cookie-cutter netbooks. With the advent of Pine Trail, Intel look to be loosening their grip on the segment a little, at least,...

Overall, then, the Toshiba Mini NB305-N410B is a decent netbook and probably of more interest to those entering large amounts of text while mobile. The mediocre graphics of Intel’s GMA 3150 chipset and the non-HD resolution of the NB305′s display mean...

Toshiba Mini NB305-N410BN

 

The world of cheap, ubiquitous, and nearly identical Netbooks has been a stable and predictable landscape for a while now, and hasn't gotten any less predictable with the launch of Intel's next generation of Atom processors. Whereas Netbooks used to...

Great battery life; large touch pad; improved speakers, bulge-free battery; sleep-and-charge USB port.

The keyboard, while wide, has awkwardly sized keys for touch-typing; some Netbooks offer HD displays for the same price.

With a new Atom processor and a tweaked design, the Toshiba Mini NB305-N410BN is an improvement over the already excellent NB205, at a price that's identical.

The Toshiba mini NB305-N410 netbook carries over many of the qualities that made its predecessor, the mini NB205 so lovable, and it's still the netbook that gives you the most for the least amount of money.

Well designed. Full size keyboard. Laptop-like touchpad and mouse buttons. 3G option available with Best Buy. One of the USB ports can charge peripherals while the system is turned off. Excellent battery life. Keeps the price where it is. Greentech...

If there's been a Renaissance man in the world of first-gen netbooks it'd be the Toshiba Mini NB205. Its long battery life, comfortable keyboard and

Striking design ; One of the best netbook keyboards ; Large touchpad with right / left mouse buttons

Toshiba has updated its stellar netbook with a sleeker design while still delivering 8.5 hours of battery life.

Now that we've tested a fair number of netbooks with Intel's new Atom N450 (Pine Trail) processor, it's easy to see that there is a lot of good competition. The ASUS Eee PC 1005PE lasts two hours longer on a charge than the $399 Toshiba mini NB305 and...

Toshiba NB305 Review

 

I have been a long standing fan of the Toshiba NB305 series, I actually picked my Mom up the NB305-310 last Christmas, so the updated NB305-440 with the upgraded 1.6 GHz N455 processor seems like a win win situation. I am a fan of the keyboard and the...

The NB305′s 5,400-rpm, 250GB hard drive performed well, copying a 4.97GB folder of multimedia files at a rate of 20.6 MBps, 4.8 MBps faster than average. It booted into Windows 7 Starter Edition in 1 minute and 9 seconds, which is 10 seconds longer...
