Toshiba Mini NB305-N310 Mini Laptop Configuration

Let us start with the processor model and its speed. NB305-N310 has Intel ATOM N450 Processor with 1.66 GHz speed and has 1GB DDR2 RAM. It has reasonable hard disk space of 160 GB SATA HDD with 5400RPM. It has 10.1" WSVGA TruBrite Backlit LED(1024 x 600) display. This model has variable weights Starting at 2.60 lbs. As I explained above, it has Genuine Windows XP (Home) SP3 and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150. Toshiba Mini NB305-N310 has 6 cell battery with a life up to 11 hours. Comparing to most other models, it has reasonably very good battery life. 11 hours support is enough for a user to use it while traveling.

Accessories and Connectors On Toshiba Mini NB305-N310

It includes five modes of data transfer. They are USB ports, RJ-45/Ethernet (10/100), memory card reader and 802.11 g/b/n adapter. It has three USB ports where one USB port with Sleep and Charge and two normal USB (2.0). It has a webcam, Headphone jack, standard stereo speakers and VGA out. The keyboard is 85 key US keyboard with big touchpad.


One issue with NB305-N310 is the lack of a modem port. It doesn't have SmartCard Reader slot and PC Express Slot. Another important feature missing is Bluetooth. Though this model does not support Bluetooth, one important improvement we can see is in the part of the WiFi adapter. This WiFi adapter supports wireless n technology. Most of the older versions supported just wireless b and g standards. Another major problem faced by hardcore Linux users is the lack of Linux installed models. All NB305 netbooks are coming with Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you want to use Linux on it, you must install it separately. I believe later versions will be installed with Windows 7 by removing XP.
