Toshiba NB520 108 Review posted on
10.1 inch Premium Netbook
Starting at 329 Euros, the Toshiba NB520-108 brings a nearly all-round netbook package to the market. The performance is slightly improved over the single-core netbooks (N450/N455). Work now runs more smoothly at hand, although the adjective fast can't really be used here.

The NB520-108 is a great little netbook, with a truly impressive battery life and surprisingly powerful speakers. The only quirk we found was the temperamental space bar.

Toshiba's 10.1in NB520 might sport the same basic internals, 10.1in screen and connectivity as most budget netbooks, but its rugged, stylish design, comfortable ergonomics and excellent battery life - combined with speakers that put many laptops to shame - mean there's still plenty to like. If you can live with its limitations, it's one of the most attractive netbooks around.
