As previously reported, it appears the Toshiba Mini NB200 (or Dynabook UX if you happen to live in Japan), comes in at least two versions. There’s a cheaper, plasticky version with wider keys. And there’s a nicer, metallic model with a chiclet-style keyboard reminiscent of the keyboard on the Asus Eee PC 1000HE. Portable Monkey has posted a review of the latter model.
If you’re thinking about picking up a Toshiba Mini NB200, you should check out the detailed review. But here are some of the highlights:
- Excellent build quality
- Decent keyboard
- Large keyboard with two distinct buttons but no multi-touch support
- Speakers are clear but quiet
- Glossy screen
- Lasts for about 3.5 hours with a 3 cell battery
Portable Monkey also reports that the RAM can be upgraded to 2GB, despite the fact that Toshiba says the netbook maxes out at 1GB.
