Reviews for the Toshiba mini NB205-N210

80% Toshiba mini NB205-N210

They say the best things come in pairs. When the colorful Toshiba mini NB205 launched (and subsequently nabbed our Editors' Choice in the netbook category), another more traditional-looking netbook launched along with it (though flying under the radar), one that deserves almost as much praise. The Toshiba mini NB205-N210 doesn't have the NB205's fancy colors and textures or its full size keyboard, but every other part and feature is as lovable. The Toshiba mini NB205-N210 takes care of all the netbook necessities and places its focus primarily on price.

Toshiba’s more budget-friendly netbook has a more basic design, but it outshines the competition when it comes to its touch pad and battery life. With the mini NB205-N310, Toshiba proved that it could build one of the best netbooks on the market, and its low-cost cousin is also compelling. Though the $349 NB205-N210 is missing a few of the premium features, such as a more elegant lid and island style keyboard, it still manages to run for more than 9.5 hours and perform up to netbook standards. Whether you opt for the N210 or the more expensive N310 depends on what you are willing to spend. Those who have the extra $50 should go with the NB205-N310 and its more compelling design; however, if you’re looking to save a little cash, the NB205-N210 is still one of the best netbooks on the market.

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). These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » 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).
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":

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.

1.4 kg:

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.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
