Best Netbooks - Toshiba Mini NB 505 N508BL


The Toshiba NB505 netbook gets an average of 4.5 stars out of 5. Here are some opinions.

"A great little netbook, not for gamers or techies. But perfect for the Internet, email, facebook and everyday stuff or when you're on the move and want to keep in touch. Small and lightweight. More than fast enough. I like it a lot."

"I have had this Toshiba netbook for 4 months and am very happy with it. It is now my primary computer. Lightweight, it fits into a bag or backpack, but is very sturdy. I am not disappointed. The Office Starter and Windows 7 Starter are adequate for my needs and I have not needed to upgrade. I did add another 1 GB of memory, which was very easy. A good buy for the money."

"I love it. The display is crisp, the webcam is as good as my Logitech 9000. The keyboard is firm and solid, no sticking keys. I use it with a wireless mouse. It connected to my wireless network no problem and zipped along at maximum speed."
