Unveiled at CES 2011, to be available for purchase post conclusion of event on January 9th

Japanese electronics giant Toshiba Corporation showcased its mini NB505 netbook recently. This happened at an event at the CES 2011. According to Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba America Information Systems, Digital Products Division, netbooks are an affordable option that people are increasingly resorting to for casual around-the-house Internet surfing and e-mail. The convenience of using the device also is an important cause of its popularity.

Mr Carl Pinto reinforced that Toshiba’s new best-in-class netbooks are designed keeping in mind consumer needs, in an attempt to yet again exceed customer expectations with better performance, better styling and better convenience-driven features. Thus defining what a companion PC should actually be.

Specifications of the mini NB505 netbook

The Toshiba mini NB505 netbook will come in a plethora of colour schemes from which users can take their pick from. This would include Turquoise, Blue, Lime Green, Brown and Orange. It will account for up to a 250GB hard drive and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. Processing capabilities will be powered by an Intel Atom N455 processor. The new Toshiba mini NB505 netbook will also sport a smart new rubberized EasyGrip Finish on the cover and Black textured finish on the inside aimed at avoiding those clumsy fingerprints on the device.

Specifications of the updated NB305 netbook model 

A protective aluminium cover will surround the updated NB305 netbook model. This cover will also perform the added functionality of adding zing to the external appearance in terms of a sleeker, elegant look. Processing capabilities will be powered by the new Intel Atom N550 dual-core processor. In addition there is the provision of 1GB of DDR3 RAM memory and a 250GB HDD.
