    Why You Should Buy the Toshiba NB305?

    While Toshiba may not be the leader in the netbook market (Asus and Acer are the current leaders), the company actually managed to play catch up with the netbook pioneers. Some of the earlier Toshiba netbooks were proven to be the netbook industry's most reliable, durable and high-performing netbooks. So, it will not be surprising if Toshiba can pull one through with its latest offering - the Toshiba NB305.

    There are three reasons why you should buy the Toshiba NB305 over the other Pine Trail-equipped netbooks available today - form factor, battery life and the Media Controller app.

    As said, the Toshiba NB305 sports a durable textured finish. It's the same design as with earlier Toshiba netbooks, so you can pretty much be assured that the netbook could stand rigorous environment and extensive mobility without damaging itself as well as your data files.

    Of course, the 11 hours battery life is a very desirable feature and the Media Controller app a bonus if you want to use your netbook as an entertainment hub.
