Summary: Have only had this netbook for a few days but the performance is better than expected. Responsive and just as quick as my desktop computer with downloads. Bought this item for traveling and will be using it in Hawaii this summer and internationally over the next few years. Purchased this netbook, additional memory (which was recommended in reviews of this item) and a 3 year warranty.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Cool color, Fast Web Browsing, Good Display Screen, Lightweight, WiFi
Summary: Bought this for my wife for Mother's Day and she seems to really like it. So far it has been adequate for all her desired uses. I look forward to traveling with it and leaving the laptop at home.
Pros: Adequate Memory, Comfortable Keyboard, Good Battery Life, Good Display Screen, Lightweight, WiFi
Summary: These Toshiba Net Books are the best Net Book Value out there ,over the last several years I have purchased two other Toshibas and several other brands of net books but the ones that are still in service and are used more are the Toshiba's.......
Summary: Only after I received the computer did I realize just how light and small it is. The weight and dimensions are listed in the product description but that was an abstract until I actually had possession of the device. The keyboard is fractionally smaller than the typical keyboard, so it takes a little while to get used to; but it's as much keyboard as Toshiba could fit in the alloted space and it is well laid out.
Summary: I am a computer professional, and this is a very good Netbook for the money. I would recommend buying the 2 GB RAM module as it will run Office 2007 much faster. It was very easy to remove and install the new memory without taking the entire Netbook apart, and in fact it is just two screws and you remove the access cover. Increase your Page file to 5 GB and you will not have any problems running programs.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact, Easy to add memory, Fast, Good Battery Life, Lightweight
Summary: I am a computer professional, and when looking for a travel computer weight, the ability to easily add memory, and being fast is what I wanted. This Netbook comes in at 2.8 lbs whereas my Dell weighs in at 7 lbs. I like to travel and being able to check bank records, web browsing, do e-mail, Skype, and do early check-in for flights were important, and this Toshiba NB505 does what I wanted and then some.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact, Ease of Adding Memory, Fast, Good Battery Life, Lightweight
Summary: I had a Dell 910 and now upgraded to the new Toshiba. Could not wait to get it, and it is really outstanding. Perfect for Skype calls and e-mail. Easy to carry, I use it as a phone and also to browse the web and for light research projects. It's the best for catching catch up on NYT front page podcasts, and for travelling. Love the brown color. It is so sophisticated. Even glamourous. Buying it from J&R was[...]best pricing.
