Previously most of Toshiba’s netbooks have been priced higher than the average netbook, which have been pushing them out of the market, even though their netbooks have always been very good.
But with the newly announced Toshiba NB255 that could change. The NB255 is a black only version of the NB305, with the latest DDR3 supporting Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor, which comes at a cheaper price of just $299.
This sub $300 price should make it a popular seller as it retains its high quality keyboard, battery life and overall build quality. Unlike the NB305 the Toshiba NB255 will be restricted to only black as a color option.
Other features include a 101.-inch LCD with a 1024×600 resolution, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and a 6-cell battery rated for 8 hours of run time.
If you are looking for a well priced, high quality and modern netbook and aren’t too fussed about color options, the Toshiba NB205 should be an ideal fit.
Update: You can now buy the Toshiba NB255 from Amazon for just $299.99!
