Toshiba Mini NB205
The Toshiba Mini NB205 marks Toshiba's first entry into the netbook market, meaning that Toshiba is quite late to the party. They've apparently been keeping good notes, however, as the Mini NB205 is an extremely competent netbook which ranks among the best.
When it comes to aesthetics, the NB205 knocks it out of the park. The netbook is available in blue, pink, brown, or white, and the lid of every color choice is decorated with raised horizontal lines which give the netbook a luxurious texture. The NB205 looks good when opened, as well, thanks to a silver finish which looks almost metallic from afar.
Functionally, the NB205 is even better. The island-style keyboard provides keys which have a large separation between each individual key, resulting in a keyboard that communicates well with the user's fingertips. (Island style means that the around around the keypad is lower than the keypad itself.) The trackpad is one of the most spacious devices available on any netbook. Toshiba's first entry also has class-leading battery life, providing between eight and nine hours with a six-cell battery. The only real weakness of the NB205 is the audio, which is a bit poor even by netbook standards.
