Pros

  • Nice keyboard for a netbook
  • Good-looking chassis and screen

Cons

  • Full of preloaded junkware
  • Dismal performance; don't expect good multitasking

At A Glance

While handsome with an unusual metallic chassis, the Mini NB305-N600 is a subpar performer that costs more than comparable, better-performing competitors, including its own sibling, the NB505-N508GN.

Manufacturer’s Description

Many netbooks seriously cramp your style. But the NB300 mini 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. It also comes with a durable textured finish in four colors, so it complements your personal style too.
