Toshiba unveils two new netbooks

Toshiba NB300 and NB305 netbooks

Toshiba is continuing its assault on the netbook market by releasing two new models in the UK.

The Toshiba Mini NB300 and NB305 follow on from the company's NB200 and are designed for both professional and consumer users.

Both models feature 10.1in screens and run on Windows 7 although you can choose XP instead.

Running on the increasingly popular choice for a netbook, the Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, they also claim a rather impressive 11 hour battery life from a six cell battery.

There is 250GB HDD of storage available as well as both integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity. The models claim almost full size keyboards and incorporated multi-touch capabilities which is again becoming a favoured feature in netbook design.

The NB305 comes in a choice of two colours, "mocha brown" or "snow white" where as the NB300 sticks with black, or "cosmic black" as Toshiba prefers.

The two products will be available at the end of January although pricing has yet to be confirmed.
