I just bought the Toshiba NB305 netbook from Futile Shop for C$390. (Mine is Mocha Brown.)
I've given it the machine name Green-Lantern.
The selection of the NB305 was based primarily on its exceptional industrial design. It looks gorgeous! The trackpad is very nice to use. The high quality keyboard feels luxurious. The 6-cell battery has a good shape that doesn't protrude impractically.
There's also the Toshiba brand, which I've always favoured.
The NB305 has a large 250GB hard drive, a 10.1" screen with 1024x600 resolution, and the new Atom N450 processor. The 6-cell battery provides an impressive battery life of 8.5 hours.
Green-Lantern will serve three purposes:
- Mobile Internet Device
- Digital camera backup for 40D & S90, via USB or SD card
- Media player (mainly movie files)
