Unboxing the Toshiba NB205 (Mini)

August 13, 2009

Inspired by Kevin Tofel’s tales and other positive reviews, I decided to purchase a Toshiba NB205-N310 (aka. Toshiba Mini in brown)…

It’s an attractive and inexpensive 10″ netbook that’s well equipped with features like Bluetooth, a huge trackpad, and a fantastic battery life (8-10 hours).

Check out my unboxing pictures, including some side-by-side shots with my Toshiba Portégé 3110CT 10″ subnotebook from 1999!

It’s amazing how 10 years later, despite almost identical size and weight, the Toshiba NB205 offers 10x the performance for 1/10th of the price.

Perhaps there’s even some hacking potential hidden within :)
