Toshiba NB520

 

Toshiba's latest 10.1in netbook might sport the same old Atom internals, but it's the most stylish and best-sounding netbook we've reviewed.

Great speakers, Stylish design, Good build, Comfortable ergonomics, Affordable

Toshiba NB 520 review

 

The Toshiba NB520 has the same basic specification that you'll see on a lot of netbooks - a 320GB hard disk, 1GB of memory and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600. It's not exactly a processing powerhouse, with it only achieving an overall score of 11 in our...

A great media-playing netbook, despite its low screen resolution

Toshiba NB520 review

 

Most netbooks are so similar that, when something slightly different comes along, we get all giddy, like a teenager queuing for the Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe Park. The 10.1-inch Toshiba NB520 is just such a machine, sporting a dual-core Intel Atom...

Dual-core processor; good screen; best audio we've heard from a netbook; great battery life.

Design isn't as slick as that of some rivals; no HDMI port.

The Toshiba NB520 netbook might lack the flashy design of some of its competitors, but decent performance, great speakers and impressive overall usability mean it's good value for money.

Toshiba - NB520

 

Netbooks haven't moved on much recently. Their place has in part been usurped by the iPad 2 and Android tablets, while their general specifications have languished in a sort of limbo as other laptop computers get ...

The Toshiba NB520 is a standard netbook on the inside, except for a superb pair of speakers. On the outside a lovely keyboard makes for good user ergonomics and the colour scheme simply looks attractive. In a sea full of similar products, Toshiba has...

Toshiba NB520 review

 

Excellent speakers for a netbook, and some nice media features too. It all depends on Toshiba's pricing

And then there's the question of price, on which Toshiba is remaining noncommittal right now. Given the Harman/Kardon involvement and the effort put into giving it a unique look, we're not expecting the NB520 to be among the bargains of the netbook...

Review Toshiba NB520-108 Netbook

 

Sound miracle. As a counterpart to its AMD Fusion NB550D sister

Solid feel; Constantly cool case; Well laid-out keyboard; Touchpad with good feedback; Good sound with subwoofer; Good battery life; Low energy consumption

Fan constantly perceptible and restless; Low performance; Long charging time of 4:30 hours; TFT not anti-glare; Limited brightness for outdoors; Few connection ports

Why does Samsung manage to keep perfect control of its netbook fan while Toshiba on the other hand does not?
