Saturday Night Netbook Shopping With Tyler


Tyler and I are being bad tonight. We offered to drive to Target to pick up a few items for Barb and there just happens to be a Best Buy in the vicinity. The Toshiba NB205  with 1.66GHz N280 Atom caught our eye and I’m very impressed with the overall package. The keyboard extremely usable with a chiclet-type design. The trackpad seems very generous in size when compared to other netbooks, as well.

I know that Intel’s (s intc) Pine Trail platform, or next-gen Atom, is on the way, but I’m leaning heavily towards this Toshiba. This model has the 6-cell battery that’s advertised around nine hours of battery life. The device is thinner than my MSI Wind as well. Decisions, decisions…
