At A Glance

The Toshiba Mini NB305-N310 is a professional-looking netbook with a comfortable keyboard and a huge touchpad, but it's not great for watching Web videos on.

Manufacturer’s Description

Many Netbooks seriously cramp your style. But the Mini NB305-N310 Netbook has a full-size keyboard and touchpad to comfortably type e-mails and update your Facebook page without skipping a beat. Its diagonal 10.1" screen size is larger and easier on the eyes.
