Product Reviews for Toshiba Mini NB305-N600 10.1" LED Netbook - Atom N550 1.50 GHz
from Oakland, CA on 12/13/2011
This laptop is slow and oftentimes fails to carry out simple commands. It is particualrly unresponsive on the internet, as compared to other computers I use on the same wireless system. It is so inefficient and slow that I have stopped using the laptop for internet use. In short, this is a poor excuse for a legitimate netbook.

I purchased the entire Everything to make this netbook more worthy of use. By doing so It meets all my requirements. (I have other computers for more speedy, technical uses.) This is a very handy tool for the traveler, be it across the country or, over to the Grands for shareing fotos and such. Good preloaded programs to start with, yet I upgraded right away for school. Sleek, small, much easier to truck to & fro school. The battery last for-friggen-ever compared to other similar netbooks. Price? Nice price for the entire get-uo too! With the Ram Upgrade it is perfect, not lightning but great speed. The wireless works very well, no complaints. Storage is par. I purchased the external DVD-RW Blueray which is a great thing to have. If I were to complain, it would be the size of the cleaning-kit that came with it. Just because the netbook is smaller...doesn't mean the cleaner bottle and brush, micro cloth have to be shrunken. LOL No big deal though, I am kidding. I did pick up another caryy case, as the sleve was not up to my requirements. [the Case should hold everything plus pens and small items necessary for functioning; THAT could be improved.} I do recomend the netbook for those whom use a phone for a phone, and a computer for a computer. Its a great Deal! Thanks again for my 5th Toshiba Happy Dance Experience

This is a nice small laptop I can take anywhere. I had a 17 but it was a little to big to take where I would go.
Add $200 to make this usable
from New York, NY on 6/14/2011
Windows 7 Starter that comes pre-installed is useless. To get any functionality from this equipment you are forced to pay, at minimum, 79 dollars more to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. More if you want to use Office for more than 30 days. External speakers are required to obtain an acceptable volume level, even after updating drivers. Toshiba Service Station software interferes with the mini entering and exiting sleep mode. Action Center frequently and inaccurately reports errors with Symantec AV. The mini may be good for a school kid or facebooking but I wouldn't recommend it for doing any real work. Since you will end up spending for an upgrade anyway, save your money and get an inexpensive laptop (doesn't matter if it's Toshiba or not). You will get much more functionality than with this mini piece of garbage.
Best Mini-Notebook / Netbook around!
from Buffalo, NY on 3/19/2011
Gift for my wife with small needs. Fits perfectly. Here needs are email, solitare, MS Word & Excel. Light weight, short startup, WiFi and tethered Verizon Wireless MiFi accessibility, small size with full keyboard. Ordered the 2GB RAM upgrade at same time; well worth the investment! It should have come with built in CD/DVD player, but purchased external with the Netbook direct. Was ready to roll right out of the box. Had to call Toshiba Direct to ensure everything arrived on time ... a pain, but even when Norton 360 changed from Version 4 to 5, it arrived at the same price; just three days late. We own three older Toshiba notebooks now and will be ordering a customized model soon for bigger, more intense needs. Great Job Toshiba!
