Technology Tuesday on Empty Streets: Toshiba Mini NB200

Posted 6:34 AM by Unknown in Labels: , , ,
Toshiba has finally entered the Netbook market with their version known as the Toshiba NB200.
I have to say that after trying it out myself and it being equipped with the new Atom N280 coupled by a very easy to the fingers type of keyboard (chicklet type - Think of Sony Vaio), is putting this netbook on the my faves list. It even is aethetically designed with an elegant bronze finish guaranteing its user to become a definite head turner. Unfortunately though this has to come with a hefty price tag in competition that of the Asus Magnesium Netbook.

First look, I knew it's expensive! I would love to have one, especially now that my laptop Sam is slowly dying. :(

Happy Wednesday Metz!

I bet my Hubby would like one of these. He keeps hinting at a new comp and he is a Fan of the Japanese models. I will show him this when he comes home.

Monica said...

Hi Metz! oh I'd love to have one, too! ;-)

Hi Maria,

aww that is a bit sad to hear that about sam :) maybe all he needs is a ram upgrade :) but as for this baby yup last price check that I had was pegged at 29,000 Philippine Pesos :)

Hi Yanjiaren,

yup if your husband is a techno dude like me am definitely sure that this is something he is going to love dearly. It has really redefined how netbooks are from this point :)

Hi Monica,

It is something i want too hehehe :) I wonder how much it would cost over at your side of the world :) Have a great week dear :) xoxo

Nicola said...

I've just bought an nb200..great deal! I'd like to know how to make a recovery disk since no cd-writer is in here...Besides, is there any software that helps me doing the recovery?? Thank u very much!!!

Hi Nicola,

There is the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator but you will need a DVD Burner to complete the process. If you want to make one using a USB you will need an ISO builder which can be found in and set your computer to boot from USB.

Here the link from Toshiba with topics that talk about this concern to help you out:

Hope this helps :)
