Summary: I bought this notebook computer, the NB305-N310 by Toshiba because I have had good luck with the other Toshiba's I have, (3 others) and I wanted something small to carry with into hot spots when I travel. I am very pleased with it, it is quick and responsive, and the battery lasts forever so I don't have to search for a AC outlet when I use it. A perfect travel companion, I love it. I bought a cordless mouse to use with it, which is most convenient for me.
Summary: I bought my netbook book 3 weeks ago. Already I've had to restore the system and I consistently get error reports on it. I have the basic min. on it and it still acts up. I think my next netbook will be a Dell.
Summary: This netbook has 1 gig main memory and 160 gig hard drive with XP. The reason for the purchase was for a few reasons. After reading a number of reviews it seemed that many people were upgrading their netbooks with 1 gig to more memory to get decent performance with Windows Starter 7. They were also no so happy with Starter 7 and many upgraded to the Full version. Many also were upgrading from and 3 cell battery to a 6 for more hours on battery.
Summary: This particular netbook family has gotten rave reviews since it came onto the scene. I've been watching and price drop on it from the time of its origins. It started out around $400 and the good reviews kept it that way. When I spotted at Walmart for $288 I had to strike. Other still had it at $349 for the nb305-n310 series. It is not the fancy all metal n410 version, but yet it has gotten better ratings. The nicer and wider keyboard is the key.
