Toshiba NB305 Netbook Unveiled New Toshiba Netbook Gets Pine Trail, New Keyboard, Software

Just a few days ago, we gave a very preliminary report on the new
Toshiba Pine Trail-powered netbooks, and now more specific details on
the new Toshiba NB305 netbook have been released. The main new selling
point of course is the inclusion of the new Pine Trail Atom N450 processor.
But, unlike others, Toshiba isn't putting Pine Trail into an older mode
l – they're adding quite a few new upgrades to the NB305. NB305
buyers will get a 250GB hard drive vs. the 160GB drive commonly found on
other netbooks and on the previous Toshiba models. The NB305 also sports
a smaller 6-cell battery than it's previous models, but thanks to the
energy-efficient Pine Trail chip, it has a longer (11 hours) battery life.
Toshiba isn't stupid and knows that consumers can choose between eight
identical netbooks, all with a Pine Trail Processor, 10-inch screen, 1GB
of RAM and Windows 7, so to different their netbook, they're adding some
new features to help the NB305 stand ahead of the other models. For
example, you can get the 'Chiclet' keys on the keyboard, first
popularized by Apple's MacBook, that are popular with consumers.
Toshiba is also offering a trackpad that is 'full-sized', like something
you'd find on a regular notebook, as opposed to the shrinking ones most
netbooks carry. The NB305 will also come with some new software, to
compliment the Windows 7 experience. Toshiba's NB305 is set to be
released January 8th, and will cost $400.
