"Pros: It's a pleasing design with some of the best netbook technology on the market Cons: The glossy chassis smears easily and the lack of Bluetooth may cause problems for some

"The netbook market has moved beyond its infancy and most manufacturers have now found their feet. Like the well-entrenched notebook scene, the market's biggest netbook makers have hit upon their preferred technology combination and standardised designs have been cropping up over the last couple of generations. Since Intel's N450 Atom processor boasts such excellent power-saving capabilities over previous chips (courtesy of its integrated graphics processor and improved manufacturing process), it has powered almost all netbooks released in the same period – Toshiba's mini NB300 was no exception.

"Like many of its kin, its 1.66GHz processor complete with Intel IGP is accompanied by 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 250GB hard drive and a 10" screen. With such similar specification cropping up everywhere, the buying decision often comes down to build quality, battery life and simple user preference."
