Toshiba NB205 Netbooks

Toshiba this afternoon confirmed that it would bring its NB200 series netbooks to the US. Now called the NB205, the line is much thinner and sleeker than its earlier counterparts while also including a more comfortable, optional "chiclet" keyboard. It also promises to upstage competitors with a six-cell battery as standard and making one of its USB ports a sleep-and-charge port that can power media players, phones or other devices while the system isn't fully active.

Much like the European and Japanese versions, the NB205 has a 1.66GHz Atom at its root as well as 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Bluetooth into its 2.9-pound frame. The systems start with the $350 NB205-210, which ships in black with a conventional keyboard. Upgrading to the NB205-310 at $400 adds the newer keyboard as well as color choices of blue, brown, pink and white. [via Crave]
