Conclusion: This is a netbook. With that bias aside, this is a very capable machine. Just to fill you in, this bias includes underpowered processing, low RAM, terrible graphics, and terrible audio. This is pretty standard across the line, with very few examples that are notably more expensive.
Toshiba NB305 review – most comfortable in its class, but a little pricey
16 February 2010
Conclusion: Overall, Toshiba did it once again with the NB305. It might not be the best in terms of performances, it might not provide the best autonomy and it might not be the most affordable, but all in one, this netbook is the most comfortable to use of all .
Pros: nice matte body (although there’s a glossy version too, for “fingerprints lovers”), very good build quality, now only weights 2.6 pounds, making it one of the lightest 10 inch netbooks out there, good keyboard with chiclet independent keys and a nice metallic feel, properly sized touchpad, separa...
Cons: display is still glossy, but there’s less glare than on the Acer or Asus devices. Still, it would have been nice to have a matte display., there’s only a 0.3 MPx camera, so if you care about that, there’s room of improvement in this area, the top versions sell for $399, and that makes the Toshiba...
Excerpt: This refreshed version of the Toshiba NB305 is almost identical to the one we reviewed back in July, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. At the time, we said it was one of the best netbooks around. From the outside it's difficult to notice any differences in this new model.
Excerpt: It may be hard to get excited by yet another 10.1in netbook, particularly one with largely identical specifications to every other Atom N450-based model. However, for its NB305 Toshiba has put a fair amount of work into making this one stand out from its competition.
Conclusion: Кроме того, Toshiba NB305 поставляется со встроенным WiMAX-модемом с привязкой к Yota. Некоторые нетбуки, как мы помним, отличались не самым хорошим качеством приема сигнала, но к NB305 это не относится: он держит связь увереннее, чем внешний WiMAX-модем, подключенный к USB.
Summary: Заявленное время автономной работы нетбука от аккумулятора до 11 часов, на деле выливается примерно в 6-6.5 часов стандартной офисной работы в интернет. Возможно, батарея еще не успела "раскочегариться", посмотрим и дополним обзор, если это произойдет.
