Toshiba NB205 netbook announced for US market

June 2, 2009 at 10:40 am

Toshiba NB205Following on from the recent Toshiba ‘Dynabook UX’/NB200 launches in Japan and Europe respectively, Toshiba has confirmed that this 10-inch follow-on from the 8.9-inch NB100, will land in the US in the form of the NB205.

The model looks very similar to the NB200, albeit slightly slimmer, and will even come in 2 SKUs, as seen in Europe. The NB205-N310 netbook will be the more expensive version, featuring a metallic textured finish, a chrome hinge, chiclet keyboard and will be available in four different colours (Sable Brown, Frost White, Indigo Blue and Posh Pink). The mini NB205-N210 netbook has a fusion finish in Black Onyx, comes with a flat keyboard rather than chiclet with black matte finish.

The NB205 will have a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) LED backlit display, a very large touchpad (probably the largest I’ve seen on a netbook). It will come with a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD and a 6-cell battery which should be good for 9 hours of life. Laptop Mag has some hands-on impressions and a video of the Toshiba NB205 in action, they think it could be one of the best netbooks yet!

The Toshiba mini NB205-N310 ($399.00) and mini NB205-N210 ($349.00) will be available from June 23, 2009 at all major retailers and directly from Toshiba.

    What exactly is the difference between the NB200 to this apart from it being “slightly slimmer”?

    Toshiba launches new NB205 seies netbooks, NB205-310 and NB205-210. These netbooks keyboard buttons are too small and netbooks have ugly looks.

    It`s going to be failure.
    Look at Sony who leads the fashion – TruBrite is outdated, replaced agan w Hi-Black ot X-Black (can`t remember the adv.).
    - The glossy display is not meant for work, it`s to make the owner proud of it`s shine.
    - Most of the customers of netbooks replace the RAM with maximum possible – 2G.
    - RGB port (VGA) is outdated, most people would like hdmi or DVI to connect ext. display.
    - N series Atom is old, replaced by more battery-economic Z5xx series who has VT virtualization feature also (for windows7 xp mode).
    - no good GPU. At this time NVIDIA`s ION is the best low powered GPU, intended for netbooks.

    Thanks for some great comments!I’ve now used Vista and The Windows 7 puilbc beta on the same laptop and the speed increase alone is enough to justify an upgrade (in my opinion.)

    I might also like to say that most of those who find themselves with no health insurance are typically students, self-employed and people who are not working. More than half of the uninsured are under the age of 35. They do not sense they are wanting health insurance since they are young as well as healthy. Their income is normally spent on homes, food, plus entertainment. A lot of people that do represent the working class either complete or in their free time are not presented insurance through their work so they move without due to the rising price of health insurance in the country. Thanks for the ideas you write about through this website.

    A lot of of the things you articulate happens to be astonishingly appropriate and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. But at this time there is actually one particular point I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the main theme of the point, permit me see what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

Got something to say?
