Reviews for the Toshiba NB100

87% Review Toshiba NB-100 Netbook | Notebookcheck
Netbook from Toshiba. The fight for netbook-market shares goes on. It might be that every renowned notebook manufacturer has, in the meantime, brought one or even more netbook models onto the market but the demand for mini-notebooks doesn't appear to come to a stop. One model is followed by the next. If Toshiba's NB-100 can stand out from the broad mass of netbooks and presents an enrichment for the already very big netbook range or rather goes with the flow, is unveiled in this test report.
50% Toshiba - NB100 review
Source: IT Reviews English
It won't be a surprise to anyone that Toshiba has a netbook in its portfolio. After all, netbooks are a popular breed of computer and there is money to be made in bringing them to market. However Toshiba is wary of the netbook nomenclature, and instead chooses to call the range in which the NB100 sits 'mini laptops'. Toshiba may be calling its range 'mini laptops', but the NB100 lacks sophistication. Future models will hopefully address some of the shortcomings.

  While others manufacturers wasted no time in jumping on the netbook bandwagon, Toshiba has taken an absolute age to get its own Intel Atom-powered machine on the market. But, with the NB100, has Toshiba learned from the mistakes of others or simply repeated the sins of the past? The Toshiba NB100 has decent battery life and a good-quality screen, but it's let down by a cramped keyboard and lack of Bluetooth support. With so many high-quality netbooks vying for your attention at the moment, the NB100 doesn't really offer anything that makes it stand out.

Source: Techradar English
The only real decision you have to make when choosing a netbook is screen size. Do you go for a super portable but slightly cramped 8.9-incher, like the Toshiba NB100, or a comfortable but larger 10-incher? The NB100 is, however, a great looker – and cheap, too, if you go for the Ubuntu version rather than the more expensive XP one.

70% Toshiba NB100-128 review
Source: Techradar English

Great mobility and software, but too flawed to be an essential purchase. As with Samsung, Toshiba was relatively late to enter the fast-growing netbook market. When it finally released the NB100 range last year, we were left slightly under-whelmed, but that's not to say that this model, the NB100-128, isn't still worth consideration. Although the excellent storage, battery life and screen quality of the Toshiba NB100-128 make it easy to recommend, it falls too far short of its rivals to be an essential purchase. At this price, you may find that other options are a better overall fit for your needs.

Toshiba's NB100-128 is a small, light and fairly rugged netbook which runs very quietly. But despite getting more out its four-cell battery than most, it can't keep up with six-cell netbooks in the battery life stakes, looks dull once opened up and its awful keyboard combined with a below-par touchpad means using it might be more pain than pleasure. A higher price than the competition doesn't do it any favours either.

75% Toshiba NB100 netbook
Source: Reg Hardware English
There are netbooks that have a curvy, kid-friendly look. Others are sleek and shiny - every one aimed at adults. Then there are blocky, serious looking ones, carved with no concession to consumer levity and fluff because the manufacturer reckons that's what businesspeople want. It's not the sexiest netbook out there, quite the reverse, but the NB100 is no slouch when running at standard speed and delivers a good battery life too. It's by no means a bad machine. We just wish Toshiba had come up with something a little less dull.

Toshiba NB100
Source: PC Authority English
There’s a huge amount to like about the NB100, Toshiba’s first netbook. Here in Australia, unlike in the UK where a slick custom Ubuntu Linux implementation is available, you only have the option of Windows XP Home on the NB100. With that, you get decent specifications, starting with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor and the standard 1GB of RAM. The hard disk is well-sized, if not as large as the HP Mini, at 120GB, providing plenty of room for documents, music and other media. In this cut-price market Toshiba’s netbooks look a little expensive – especially considering the bland design. If the NB100 drops in price, though, it could be worth a look.

Last surprise that Toshiba NB100 had for us was price tag: it is in range of similar products from less known brand names. Obviously Toshiba is aware of the fact that they came late and one way to compensate this is by offering better accessories and better quality build but it is obvious that they failed in this segment. Second path that can be undertaken is to use wise price politics and offer to customers product with well established brand for price similar to products from direct competitors. As long as Toshiba continue to use moderate price for NB100 it will have its position on the market and buyers can be nothing less than satisfied.

A tiny Toshiba netbook which doesn't cut corners on features. The only real decision you have to make when choosing a netbook is screen size. Do you go for a super portable but slightly cramped 8.9-incher, like the Toshiba NB100, or a comfortable but larger 10-incher? Although the Toshiba shares exactly the same keyboard design as the similarly sized Asus 901, it doesn't overcome the size constraints quite as well. The NB100 is, however, a great looker – and cheap, too, if you go for the Ubuntu version rather than the more expensive XP one.

The Toshiba NB100-11R is a well-made and smart-looking example of how to make a powerful mini laptop – not powerful in the sense of raw processing power but by covering most users needs, out of the box, with a trim and reliable interface.

Just like Dell with its Inspiron Mini 9, Toshiba has eased into the netbook fray with an 8.9in affair. Rather than offering a radical design, integrating 3G or supplying stunning specs, it's pinning its early hopes on reputation - a "netbook from a brand you can trust" is its non-too subtle tagline. A superb choice of operating system and great-looking 8.9in screen, but the price needs to drop for Toshiba's first netbook to make a big impression.

With its mini-me styling, comprehensive software suite and easy to use operating system, it’s impossible to dislike the NB100. Now some of its rivals are concentrating solely on larger, 10.2-inch Netbooks, it’s a refreshing change to see a return to the original form-factor, and this is a machine you can truly take anywhere. It’s worth having a go if you can, however, as some users will definitely find the small keyboard too cramped. Other than that, it’s an excellent effort, and one that comes highly recommended.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.9": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.05 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
