Netbook News recently got the chance to test out Toshiba’s new netbook, the NB250, at Toshiba’s 25th anniversary press conference.
The Toshiba NB250’s specs aren’t anything out of the ordinary for a netbook. However, there are a few features that make this particular netbook somewhat unique. Toshiba included DDR3 RAM, which is faster than the standard DDR2 RAM that most other netbooks come with. Toshiba also included a multi-touch trackpad.
Toshiba NB250 Specs:
- 10.1-inch LED backlit display (1024×600 resolution)
- Intel Atom N455 processor
- 1GB DDR3 RAM
- 250GB HDD
- USB ports
- 1.3-megapixel webcam
- 4-in-one card slot
- 3-cell battery for 4 hour battery life
- optional 6-cell battery for 8 hour battery life
- Windows 7 Starter Edition
In the hands on video, Sascha Pallenberg of Netbook News runs through the full specifications as well as all of the available ports and connections. Of special note, Netbook News draws attention to the accessibility to the netbook’s hard drive, memory, and even the WiFi card, an attribute that is not found on all netbooks. This allows the end-user to upgrade hard drives and memory with ease. The keyboard is unique in that it combines a chic-let and ordinary keyboard which, according to Pallenberg, provides impressive feedback – though some of the keys are an abnormal size. Finally, Netbook News notes that the palm rest has a good feel to it, keeping your palms from slipping. Below is the full hands on video from Netbook News.
The Toshiba NB250 is available today from Toshiba Direct for $299.
