86% Review Toshiba NB 200-113 Netbook | Notebookcheck
Toshiba NB Netbook, Episode 2. As the 8.9 inch sized NB 100 has recently been in our test lab, now Toshiba's second netbook coup, the NB 200, is already on the test-bench. This time, however, with a 10.1 inch display for an improved overview. The question, if the Toshiba NB200 can even be considered to be the NB 100's heir, as the implemented hardware of both models by and large are conform, or if it's simply a refresh of the NB 100 with a larger display and altered look, remains to be seen.
Making a fashion statement
Source: Star Techcentral English
If there’s one conclusion that I can come up with for the NB200 it’s this — this netbook is the one to buy if you like a small, cheap computer without looking like you bought a small cheap computer. Performance is not too shabby either, especially the keyboard. While battery issues can be solved by buying the extended battery, I’d have preferred it if Toshiba had just put in a better set of speakers into the netbook as I often use mine for watching movies while on the go. However those are really minor niggles, especially when you consider that you get a pretty high quality and nice-looking notebook for RM1,699.

Toshiba NB200-10Z
Source: Netbookchoice English
Toshiba’s first attempt at a 10-inch netbook has delivered one of the most distinctive models on the market today. The company has shown that portable, value computing does not mean that you need to compromise on looks and desirability. The Satin Brown NB200-10Z that we tested is superbly designed with a great exterior and interior colour scheme. We love the fact that the lid is not a fingerprint magnet unlike so many other netbooks with their glossy lids.

After spending some time with the NB205 it’s clear that this is a prime candidate for the hot netbook of the month. Toshiba got a lot right with this, including the design, the input devices, the size, and even the price. Of course there are some minor stumbles with the battery, performance, and sound, plus it’s not the lightest model out there, but it’s still a competitive machine. It’s probably not the best netbook on the market, but it’s not one to cross off your list without trying out, especially if you need the battery life. Note: The model we tested and photographed was the NB205-N312BL. There are other models in the NB200 series, not all of which have the same keyboard. This is a major selling point so users should be careful, especially if a model is $349 instead of $399. Laptop Mag has a photo and breakdown.

  Toshiba's second attempt at a netbook is a stunning success... almost. The design's superb, the build quality good and the specs decent too. Only the above-par pricing - though you do get a better-than-average software bundle - and the awful colour schemes applied to the higher-end models let the side down. Toshiba: ditch the silver and chrome and you'll have a real winner on your hands.

Toshiba can't be blamed for the lack of evolution in the netbook platform, however infuriating it might be. Until someone deigns progress necessary (or nVidia ION systems begin to hit the shelves) all any company can do is make the best product possible under the limitations created by Microsoft and Intel. Toshiba has done just that with its second netbook, the NB200. Though it's bound by common restrictions, Toshiba has managed to add one or two unique features of its own and delivers in the all the right areas. There's no shortage of good netbooks these days, but the NB200 is definitely one of the best.

There are several build options, and the NB200-123 model we tested includes the useful 3G modem and 6-cell battery. Models without the modem can be found for well under £300 if you don’t need the added connectivity. For solid build, excellent battery life and good interface components, the Toshiba NB200 earns a hearty recommendation.

Toshiba's first stab at a netbook, the NB100, was on the boxy side, and suffered from specs that were slightly out-of-date by the time it launched. With the slicker-looking NB200, Toshiba is looking to make up lost ground. With so many good netbooks now on the market, manufacturers face an increasingly tough challenge to make their offerings stand out. By adding neat features like the charge-and-sleep USB port and shock-protected hard-drive, Toshiba has managed to pull it off with the NB200. We have no hesitation in recommending it.

Toshiba mini NB200-11H

The new Toshiba mini NB205 is an attractive netbook that offers a fantastic touchpad, large keyboard, and easy access for upgrades. The battery life of the NB205 is among the best in class and should get you through a full day at school or the office. At a price of just $400 this might be a popular netbook for the back-to-school season. Still, despite these nice features, it's hard to overlook the flex and sound of weak plastics, the extremely flexible keyboard, and the weak speakers. Most netbooks have surprisingly firm keyboards, so we're more than a little disappointed that the keyboard on the NB205 practically "bounces" while you type on it.

This is about as high end as a low-end laptop gets. We admire Toshiba for finding a design hook, hanging itself off it, and resolutely staying there no matter how loudly the world shouts: the look of the NB200 we recieved is best summed up as 'diagonal stripes and plastic'. If you can find the black version we'd say the NB200 is a fantastic choice poking its head out above a busy crowd. Steer clear of the silver one, though.

The jump from an 8.9-inch form factor in the NB100 to the 10.1-inch design here places the NB200 firmly in line with its rivals. Aside from the excellent battery life, it has no stand-out features, but it still remains a highly attractive and well-made netbook. It may not move the game on, then, but it’s among the best netbooks currently available.

If you've been wondering whether or not to buy a netbook, and you're reading this before the end of October 2009, then there's every reason to be tempted by the Toshiba NB200 range right now. Up to that point you can get £50 cashback with your purchase, which means the typical price of £329 inc VAT for this version (the Toshiba NB200-11M) drops down to £279 inc VAT (during the review, we saw it for a few pounds less at Laptops Direct). And at that price, it's a bargain. This netbook holds three aces: superb battery life, a great keyboard and a nice screen. If you can get it for under £300, with or without the current cashback offer, it's a superb buy.

The Toshiba NB200 is a solid all-around netbook that can be a good traveling companion. The lack of a built-in optical drive does not affect the usage of the system. Even with just the b/g wireless device, I am able to connect to all home and work networks with ease. Using the standard resolution the screen offers good clear viewing during browsing, office works and media playback. Surprisingly the speakers are clear for a small foot print notebook. I am further pleased by Windows 7 Ultimate performance on this comp. There is no shortage in system resources when switching between tasks.

Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba reviews


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

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).

» 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.

N280:

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. Compared to the N270, the N280 is only minimally higher clocked and offers a higher FSB.


10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small 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 a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.18 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.

1.4 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


81%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
