Summary: Bought this a few years ago because, though I have a regular size laptop, I wanted something smaller and lighter so I could sit in my recliner and do things like internet research, email, reading, etc.
Summary: I bought this netbook as a downsize after graduating college. Up until now I always had a desktop or a laptop. The netbook is not as fast as a laptop, but the speed difference is small enough that I no longer notice. For a netbook it's very fast.
OK Product. Horrible Customer Service from Toshiba

Summary: I've had this netbook for a year. It is slow and sometimes it does freeze which does not bother me. However, I'm pretty sure that having 2 gigs of memory would help a lot in speeding up this netbook.
Summary: After wondering if I should replace my very old faltering 15" laptop with a netbook or another laptop, I went for this netbook, and am satisfied with the decision. a) My old laptop was 7+ pounds, this is 2+ pounds. I carry it to various building sites to do work with delightful ease.
Summary: Good mini computer. Nice size and portable. Windows 7 works well on it. It does not come with Microsoft Office, but if you an email attachment or want to open a document that you have on a usb device it will automaticly go to Office on-line and you can read and edit any Office document.
Summary: review: toshiba nb255 - n245 os: ubuntu 10.10 "maverick meerkat" even though the netbook edition is still working out some issues, it works decent. if you are a gnome/kde user, it will feel very restrictive as far as configurability and the layout will need somewhat of getting used to.
Summary: Pros: Large trackpad Cons: 1) although it comes with the N455 CPU, it does not come with DDR3 ram. Why should we care? Toshiba crippled this system by using a motherboard that only accepts DDR2 ram, which is being phased out.
Summary: This is so great. Everything works easily and the picture is perfect. It is easy to carry around and downloads at a remarkable speed. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a small carry around computer.
Summary: I ordered the netbook on the 4th of October, I got it on the 6th, GREAT FAST shipping! When I got it..I just fell in love with it! Its cute, tiny, and perfect for my everyday life;) I had an HP Pavililion before this, almost 2yrs old, and it was just way too big, and the mini is perfect!
Summary: For the price I am happy with this little mini notebook. Love that it is so lightweight. I did have an issue though, I lost the bio password. I had thought the tech could help me over the phone and if nothing else reset the computer to where it was when I took it out of the box.
