“The Toshiba NB 100 is a very able netbook for someone looking for a performance with ultra portability. Portability is the main edge of the NB 100 and that’s obviously what the designers had in mind for this system anyway. The battery life is excellent too, which lasts for more than 2 hours and 30 minutes and that’s good for people who spend most of their time in field works.
This gadget is an ideal innovation by Toshiba for people who want a complete package at a very competitive price.” (DealGiant, -)
“Toshiba’s NB100-128 is a small, light and fairly rugged netbook which runs very quietly. But despite getting more out its four-cell battery than most, it can’t keep up with six-cell netbooks in the battery life stakes, looks dull once opened up and its awful keyboard combined with a below-par touchpad means using it might be more pain than pleasure. A higher price than the competition doesn’t do it any favours either.” (TrustedReviews,-)
