Fab Find: Toshiba Mini Notebook For Moms On The Go

A few days ago Toshiba officialy launched their new Mini NB205 Notebook which I am listing as a “Fab Find” not only because they are great for moms on the go (and what mom isn’t these days!) but also because I want one for myself!

The new Toshiba Mini Notebook is extra light and easy to carry. I don’t carry a purse anymore because with the twins it’s hard to carry them and a diaper bag let alone anything else!  Which is why I would love to have a mini notebook, it would be great for me to just stick in the diaper bag and go and then I can work on projects from anywhere easily and without carrying around a bigger, heavier laptop.

Here are some of the great features of the Toshiba Minis.

Comfort without Compromise

The super-compact mini NB205 features a bright and vivid 10.1-inch diagonal widescreen LED backlit display, a full-size QWERTY raised-tile keyboard and a generous laptop-sized touchpad, making typing and navigating the Web easy and comfortable. The mini notebook also runs Windows® XP, a familiar operating system with broad application compatibility.

Common-sense Portability

The mini NB205 is packed with common-sense usability features that address real-world consumer portability demands. It comes equipped with a Hard Drive Impact Sensor that guards data from the daily bumps of mobile life and a USB port with Sleep-and-Charge that enables users to charge various consumer electronics devices even when the unit is turned off.

The mini NB205 delivers peace of mind around the world – it is one of the few mini notebooks available that comes standard with a one-year international limited warranty, giving Toshiba customers access to over 271 service providers worldwide.

A Stylish and Eco-chic Companion

There are two available configurations of the Toshiba mini NB205 series.

The mini NB205-N310 features a unique and stylish textured finish, an accenting chrome hinge and will be available in four metallic color finishes – Sable Brown, Frost White, Indigo Blue and Posh Pink – to fit the most discerning consumer’s style and fashion needs.
