Toshiba busts out the Mini NB250 netbook, drops price on NB305
Toshiba’s just not stopping with the laptops this week, and has now outed the 10.1-inch Mini NB250 netbook, while also refreshing the Mini NB305 with an Intel Atom N455 processor. The new Mini NB250 boasts a typical 1,024 x 600 resolution backlit LED, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 CPU, integrated GMA 3150 graphics, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. It’s also packing three USB ports, a multicard reader and a webcam, plus 802.11 b/g/n wireless, Ethernet and Bluetooth. It comes with a three-cell battery standard, but there’s an optional six-cell which will purportedly get you around eight and a half hours of life. The NB250 doesn’t have a nicely coated chiclet keyboard like the Mini NB305, but for $299 we won’t complain. Truthfully, the NB305 continues to be our fave netbook, especially now that Tosh has dropped the price down to $379.
