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.
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]([...Read more ›
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.Read more ›
