One such product is the all-new Toshiba Mini NB205-N325BL with a price range of $329-399 that is more expensive than Apple’s iBook. Now, one is led to question whether it is worth shelling out that much money? Find out all the answers below.

Overview of Features

In comparison to other models of netbook in the market today, Toshiba Mini NB205-N325BL does a pretty decent job of holding its own. It is even able to outdo some of the other brands that belong to the same price category like HP or Asus, to name a few, which is impressive given that the said brands are quite well known in the laptop market. Toshiba Mini NB205-N325BL performs tasks efficiently, thanks to the impressive Intel Atom N280 CPU processor, 1GB RAM, and 160GB 5,400 rpm HDD.

When it comes to the touchpad and keyboard performance, Toshiba Mini NB205-N325BL is a bit on the fair side – it does not impress nor does it disappoint. One main concern though with the hardware is the audio, which is really lacking in quality.

Meanwhile, conducting basic tasks as opening word documents, web surfing, video streaming, among others, can be done in an efficient speed rate.
