"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."
