Reviews for the Toshiba NB305-N410BL
Source: IT Reviews
The NB300 excels both in terms of its battery life and keyboard. Considering these are arguably the two most vital features of any netbook, Toshiba can be reasonably proud of itself. It's also managed to keep the price under the £300 mark, making the NB300 one of the best netbooks currently available.

The Toshiba Mini NB305-N410 is a basic netbook that's pretty solid, with decent specs: a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Starter Edition; however, it is priced a bit higher than similarly configured netbooks. The Toshiba NB305-N410 has decent battery life and a great screen, but its keyboard, while pretty, is a bit of a disappointment.

The Toshiba NB300 is a 10in netbook with a slim frame, a long battery life and an advanced Sleep-and-Charge USB port. Overall, the Toshiba NB300 is a little gem. Sure, it can be improved (and we hate the use of Torx screws for the hard drive compartment), but its build quality, user comfort and features make it one of the best little laptops on the market.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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).
Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
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.
