Toshiba releases new NB200 netbook, fastest Qosmio X300 notebook

World’s sexiest netbook versus world’s fastest notebook

Stand-out features: It may not have the fastest, most impressive configuration we’ve seen in a netbook, but the NB200 has a few features that make it stand out. Because it has a conventional spinning hard drive, it employs 3G drive guard technology, which can detect movement and park the heads in case you get a little too rough with it. It comes with face recognition technology that allows you to log on by posing instead of typing a password. The netbook has sleep-and-charge USB 2.0 ports, which allow you to charge your USB devices even when the NB200 is switched off (including the iPhone), and it has synchronisation software that allows you to sync your PC or main notebook with the NB200.

As you can see it also has a full-sized keyboard with isolated keys, a very roomy touchpad and separated left- and right-click buttons. The keyboard takes a little while to get used to, but the touchpad is smooth and responsive.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
