Intel Atom Processor: Your PC's Perfect Internet Companion

Take the Internet to more places with the long battery life and flexibility of a compact, lightweight netbook powered by the incredibly small, amazingly smart Intel Atom processor. It features a design structure that packs in 47 million transistors into a single chip sized at just 22mm (0.87 inches), and it uses just 2.5 watts of power--less than 1/10 of the 35 watts used by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor--for excellent battery management. This 1.66 GHz Atom N280 processor also includes a power-optimized front side bus of 533 MHz for faster data transfer on demanding mobile applications and a 512 KB L2 cache (which temporarily stores data).

Hard Drive Protection

While the highly portable nature of mini-notebooks exposes them to the knocks and bumps that are an inevitable feature of life on the move, the Toshiba mini NB205 features a 3D-accelerometer monitoring system that detects freefalls, shocks and vibrations and protects the integrated HDD to secure against the loss of any personal data.

Customer Reviews

Its perfect for travel and to have something in the house that you can carry around.
B. Allworth
The touch pad can be a bit finicky, however.

Color Name: Royal Blue
Well, it looks like I'm first. I have this dream of having a laptop in every room that I use a lot in the house. Mainly my living room and bedroom. I already had two work laptops in my home office and call me lazy but I was tired of carrying the one I use out of the office, up and down the stairs, running out of battery and having to go get the power cord. I decided a netbook might be a good choice for my minor chatting and surfing.

I couldn't decided between this model and the HP Mini 311. I ended up ordering the HP and buying this one at my local store. This model is very slick looking. I got the Blue one and its very elegant. You wouldn't mind being seen out with this laptop.

When I got it home I took it out of the box. The battery was already in the netbook but had 0 power so I needed to charge it. I haven't yet tested how long the battery lasts, I'll come back to update that.

Out of the box the laptop had me name my netbook then it found my wireless router right away. That was really nice not to have to configure anything. I just put in my routers password and I was on. No work, no hassle no headache.

My unit is running Windows 7 starter edition. I see the Win7 has moved the programs you are running to the bottom of the screen, similar to Mac's Dock. Microsoft could have made them look a little better but that has nothing to do with this netbook.

I had a few concerns owning a netbook. My husband has one of the original eee Asus Netbooks and I can't type on those to save my life. Not to mention they get hot enough to cook on. So going in I knew I did not want these two issues.

I have on a pair of thermal (like long johns) material PJ's and this netbook has been surfed on and chatted with on Aim for the last 7 hours straight.

Color Name: Black Onyx Verified Purchase
Before buying a netbook, I did a lot of research and determined that the Toshiba NB205 series would be best for me. Instead of buying it immediately and having Windows XP as my OS, I decided to wait a few days until Windows 7 was released. The only problem I encountered was that the scroll built into the touch pad stopped working. I figured that it had something to do with the 6 Windows updates I did, so I restarted the netbook and it worked fine again, and I haven't had the problem since. After getting used to the netbook, I decided to download some wallpaper, so I searched for some good 1024x600 images, and discovered what everyone else with Windows 7 Starter quickly found out: you can't change the wallpaper. While not critical to the operation of the netbook, this is a pointless and very annoying feature to leave out. When searching for a solution to this, I found several other features that Windows 7 Starter leaves out;

You can't change themes
No personalization
Can't log out
No DVD support
No XP mode

There are more features left out, but the point is, there is no reason I should be paying more for a netbook with Windows 7 Starter than the same netbook with Windows XP, when 7 limits what I can do. Right now I am considering trying to return this for a full refund or seeing if I can load a Mac OS on. Again, the netbook is a good choice, but pay attention to the operating system before buying.

Color Name: Sable Brown Verified Purchase
I actually bought the NB205-N330BN, pre-ordering it from amazon, so this review is by an actual owner. In addition to this netbook, I also own 2 desktops (one I built myself) and two laptops. Before buying, one needs to realize the limitations of a netbook. It's not meant as a replacement for your desktop or laptop. I bought it for remote access to my company's server so I could prepare reports from the road and not have to drive 1-2 hours to my office. For this and for internet browsing, it has been perfect. Two others in my office have Asus and HP netbooks and this Toshiba blows them away, if for nothing else the keyboard layout. Wi-fi reception has been much better than the laptop I previously used, so I have no complaints at all. Windows 7 Starter has been fine. I didn't need all the bells and whistles and stupid Windows tricks. No wallpaper? Who cares?

All I can suggest is that you do your research to make sure a netbook fits your needs. Read the reviews and visit a retail outlet to check out the various models, keyboard layout, etc. At this time I highly recommend the Toshiba. I thought my wife might complain about the brown color, but she and everyone else loves it. A nice change from black or blue.

I've been browsing around for awhile in search of the right netbook and I finally (sorta) settled down on this Toshiba mini NB205 N330. I say sorta because I actually haven't bought it yet but I've tested it--as well as other netbooks--numerous times whenever I visit an electronics store.

A great feature of this netbook is its keyboard. I'm mainly using this netbook to takes notes in class and the buttons are the right size for my fingers which makes typing a whole lot more efficient and satisfying. I find myself making less typos with this extra space in between each button than when I was testing with other netbook keyboards.

There is a ~$20 difference between the Toshiba N225 and N330. And that's because the N330 can hold 250GB (instead of 160) of HD space and supports bluetooth.

Currently, all netbooks won't have any other versions of Windows 7 other than the Starter so its unfair to rate a netbook off of its OS. Theres a hidden link on Microsoft's website that allows students to order Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional for only $30 (offer expires January 3rd I think) so take advantage of that if you're a student. I've already ordered mine so I won't have to deal with Windows 7 Starter when I get my netbook.

This netbook is a chip away from being perfect only because the speaker is terribly placed underneath the netbook which makes very poor sound. I really hope Toshiba is listening to reviews and fix the speakers.

One more downside is the battery pack that sticks out a good inch or 1/2 inch. That means you won't be able to get a 10.2in case but rather go for something a little bigger OR a 10.2in case with a flap top.

As for now, I will await for Black Friday and pray that this NB205 N330 will be on sale that very day. Even better would be if they release another version with improved sound and slap it on sale for black friday.
