Toshiba is bringing its first 10 inch netbook to the United States. In fact, the Toshiba NB205 will be the first mini-laptop from Toshiba available in the US. The company’s Satellite NB100 netbook with an 8.9 inch display was sold parts of Europe, Asia, and South America, but never made it to the States.
The Toshiba NB205 has a 10.1 inch display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, a 160GB hard drive, and 1GB of RAM (which can be upgraded to 2GB). Laptop Magazine reports that the netbook has a 9 hour battery, and that it also happens to be one of the best looking netbooks around. There will be two versions of the netbook. The NB205-210 will cost $350 and come in black, while the $400 NB205-210 adds Bluetooth capabilities, comes in four colors (brown, white, ping, or blue), and has an Asus Eee PC 1000HE-style chiclet keyboard.
If the NB205 looks familiar, that’s because this is pretty much the same computer as the Toshiba Dynabook UX the company launched in Japan, and the NB200 which Toshiba introduced for the UK market.
be thankful you didn’t get the over-priced, under powered battery device we had in Australia! The PC mags largely slammed it. About all you could say it was it was tiny and somewhat cute. But they didn’t set the world on fire being A$200 more than similarly speced Asus netbooks…
