The 10.1-inch Toshiba NB205 netbook seems to be just another clone with a 1.66 GHz Atom N280 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, Windows XP and a 160 GB hard drive. While you might be forgiven if you dismiss it for that reason, you’d still be making a mistake. Why? The NB205 has 8 hours of battery life.
That number is fantastic, considering the fact that netbooks still come out with under 3 hours of juice. Another fantastic feature includes a USB port that can charge auxiliary devices like cell phones and iPods, even if the system is powered off.
Toshiba’s new netbook comes in at $399.99, but you get what you pay for.
