This netbook feels very sturdy and well made.

I found countless others with the same issue, cracked LCDs on a new Toshiba notebook and Toshiba refusing to repair or replace their defective equipment.

Dual core processor with hyper-threading. Much faster than the single core atom netbooks. I own a N255 as well as this one, and the NB305-N600 blows the N255 away. I have a 2GB Crucial memory stick coming this week, would have been nicer if Toshiba would have just had 2GB installed from the factory.

It's been a month since I have owned this netbook. I LOVE it, I use it daily now and don't even bother with my desktop anymore. It does everything I need it to, email, internet, itunes, pdf files, basic stuff. I installed 2GB Crucial stick and that helped quite a bit. Purchase the memory direct from Crucial... Amazon doesn't sell the right stick at this time.

The wireless N is great. No problems with it connecting, it does so very quickly too! Raise the screen/lid from hibernate/suspend/whatever, enter password, within 5-6 seconds I am online.

Be forewarned that Toshiba has a LOT of pre-installed software that is pretty much useless to most users. I plan to install a Intel SSD drive and full copy of Windows 7 in the next few weeks.

I am getting about 6-7 hours battery life, but I did increase the screen brightness to a realistic level.

I purchased the Toshiba NB305 mini- notebook a few months ago. After having only used it for roughly a week, the LCD behind the screen cracked rendering the screen unusable and therefore the notebook as well. The LCD cracked from simply closing the notebook. The notebook was fairly new and covered under a standard one year warranty, so we figured we would be able to contact Toshiba and have the issue remedied with no problem. Wrong. The first contact made to Toshiba was by my husband who was told that LCD damage is not covered under the warranty and repairing it would be more expensive than the product itself. He was quoted a repair cost of $500 dollars. The machine itself was a little under $400. I figured the representative he spoke to might have been misinformed and that they would be responsible for a product with an obvious manufacturing defect, so I contacted them myself and was told that Toshiba would pay to send the notebook to a repair depot and have it repaired free of charge under warranty. I was then instructed that they would be sending me an email with a form that I would need to complete to arrange for the shipping and repair of the notebook. I was dismayed to find the form required my payment information for the shipping and handling fees. I contacted Toshiba again and was told the previous representative had misinformed me and that I would be responsible for the $25.00 cost of sending the notebook to the repair facility. I was then told they would incur all other charges from that point, including repairs and its return shipping and handling. I paid the $25.00, figuring it was worth it to not lose out on the larger cost of the unusable notebook.Read more ›

I was a bit disappointed at first, the review I read had praised how much faster and better this version of the Atom processor was. The machine I got seemed to freeze up if I tried to run more than 3 things at a time, so I maxed out the RAM to 2gigs. After that still didn't seem to fix things I did some investigating online about the Windows 7 Starter that it came installed with, it is designed to make netbooks look less attractive, you can only have 3 things on your desktop at a time. I upgraded to Professional and it was like night and day. With the upgrades this netbook is very capable, much faster than the NB205s. The battery lasts forever, so far not less than 7 hours no matter what I do with it. It has plenty of speed for what I want to do; Hulu and Netflix runs great, the WIFI is much better than the one in the NB205 I had been using. It's even a great conversation starter, it looks good.

One of the main reasons I picked the Toshiba was that my girlfriend bought a NB205 with XP on it in February of last year. A pretty good machine; a little too slow to run Hulu or even Netflix, but everything else that we ran on it seemed to do OK. I really loved the portability, the long battery life, the ability to pull pictures off our camera anywhere, edit them, and send them out to friends as soon as we took them, it went with us everywhere, it WAS great. So we got to depend on having it around. But recently (the last week or so) there have been some major issues cropping up with her NB205 that are making me very nervous about my new (now 3 week old) NB305.

The NB205 has become very hesitant to turn on, and this is apparently a pretty common problem with the NB200 series; [Toshiba Forums]([...

After two weeks of testing this machine I am ready to walk-away from laptops.

This is our second NB305. We have the NB305-N442. The N600 is a dual-core atom processor while the N442 is single core. The top of its case is brushed aluminum, compared to the N442's plastic. These are the only two physical differences I see.

We swapped out the standard drive for a Zalman N128 solid state drive ("SSD"). Installed Windows 7 Professional (you only need the 32-bit version since this machine only supports 2GB of memory). Most drivers load with the Win 7 install, but you will need a few which you can download from the Tosh support website. While this route is extra work, you get rid of the bloat-ware that comes preinstalled on the disk drive it ships with. We have had many Tosh laptops since 1995 and the bloatware just keeps getting worse. In our experience, it slows the machine down. Swapping out the shipped drive and doing a clean install on an SSD gives you great speed gains in loading the OS and the programs you install.

In this configuration, the OS load time is FAST, especially out of hibernation. If you are using your laptop for word-processing, VPN, remote desktop or email, you are going to love this machine. Using the configuration above with Office 2010, will get Word or Outlook loaded in about 5 seconds! I've used my PowerPoint off of it to give presentations without a hitch.

I travel alot and this is where the machine shines. At airport security it is easy to pull out of a bag, it weighs less than three pounds. On the plane, I do not have to worry about my screen getting jammed up when the seat in front of me reclines. It is light and powerful, but battery life is outstanding.
