The Toshiba netbook's 3lb weight and size makes it incredibly portable, handleable, and stowable. Grab it single-handedly at the palmrest, grab it at the hinges, or scoop it up from underneath; it's construction feels sturdy and solid where you don't have to worry about something falling off from this kind of abuse. For you existing notebook users, ever feel like you're devoting 80% of your backpack to carrying around that bohemoth... or how about trying to use a 15" screen on the dining tray in the cattle-section of an economy flight? ESPECIALLY when you're just using it to compose a few paragraphs for a meeting, class, or email rant? The NB305 netbook remedies this exactly. The 10.1" screen can be comfortably angled away from you even when the passenger in front decides to stay reclined throughout the flight. Size and weight. Advantage? Netbook.
Unlike other netbooks, Toshiba's NB305 has a design that accomodates a 6-cell battery as standard. No outrageous goofy protrusion as in HP and Sony's extra-cost offering. With the lid closed, the whole package remains as svelte and stowable as lesser competitors with their 3-cell designs.Read more ›
I read all the top reviews and I came up three Netbook manufacturers that caught my eye: Asus, Toshiba, and HP. As I continued to look at user's reviews and comments I finally narrowed my decision to get a Toshiba. A few reviewers that caught my attention were Mac users and they selected a Toshiba netbook. I made up my mind and decided to go with the NB305-N440BL model. It has the latest N455 processor and uses the newer memory DDR3. This combination gives the system a slight increase in speed. Also, having a 250GB hard drive is a much needed feature for me.
I purchased this netbook from Beach Camera via Amazon. I ordered it on a Thursday evening, it shipped on a Sunday and I received it on Tuesday.
The initial installation was easy. Created a new Windows account for myself. Connecting to the WIFI network was quick and easy.
Windows 7 Starter OS is a limited version. I do have plans in the near future to upgrade to the Windows 7 Professional version along with installing a 2GB memory module. In the meantime, I'm still using the 1GB RAM that came with the system. I also installed an 8GB USB flash drive that's dedicated as a Ready Boost device for the Windows 7 Starter environment. I've setup the flash drive of which 4GB (the max) will be used by the OS. I think for now, I'll keep Windows 7 Starter. So far, it's useable and I haven't encountered any issues. My 2GB Kingston memory module is in the process of being shipped from Toshiba Direct.
In regards to finding the correct memory module. I've read that the BIOS version 1.5 will handle either the DDR2 or the DDR3 memory modules. Versions prior to BIOS version 1.5, can only handle DDR2 memory.Read more ›
Update: Memory now available is Kingston KTT1066D3S/2G
Ok. These things happen.
Amazon very generously sent me a new memory module. This also didn't work.
I spent hours on the phone, with Toshiba's "technical" support. Serial liars all. Their clownish obfuscation was beyond all belief. I wish I had a transcript, because I can't recreate the stream of circular logic, technical ignorance, scripted flowery phrases, and dropped calls. (I also spoke with the wonderful folks at Crucial. They make the module and spent a lot of time with me trying to diagnose the problem.)
While Toshiba was busy denying there WAS a problem I watched -- on the fly -- Toshiba's website change: it no longer linked to recommended memory upgrade modules. But no one, from Level 1 to Level 2 (Level 3 was mysteriously sequestered and unavailable for direct contact) to Customer Support back to Level 1 could ever for a moment admit there was a problem other than the unlikely coincidence that BOTH modules sent to me were flawed.
And (I had owned the machine for 1 day!) if I wanted them to look at the netbook I had to ship and insure it to Kentucky, at my expense, for their leisurely look. They wouldn't cover me under warranty taking it locally into a Toshiba-authorized repair shop.
The long story short, when I saw their own web site refresh and change, I saw Toshiba's new official story: they wouldn't support a memory upgrade. I still have a downloaded spec PDF, which certainly does. But they've changed their tune online.
Amazon has been terrific throughout this mess. But Toshiba: what an awful corporate culture. What an awful warranty. What a lineup of people picking up the phone.
A company's product is no better than their customer service. I rank Toshiba as the worst.
