Toshiba on Monday announced its mini NB305 netbook, now sporting a new look, a full-size keyboard and 11 hours of battery life.
The refresh for Toshiba's netbook distinguishes itself from competitors with a full-size keyboard and touchpad. Outside, you'll find a 10.1-inch diagonal LED backlit display. Inside, Intel's new Atom N450 processor helps the system achieve all-day battery life.
