Before we delve into the benchmarks, let's take a quick look at the Toshiba netbooks. The unit sports pretty standard connectivity options like USB ports, video-out and audio jacks. The design is bright, eye catching, and we quite like the funky colors of both netbooks. The plastic exterior is also non glossy, which means no ugly fingerprints marring the surface.

Flipping open the top cover, the same exterior design elements continue within. While space is tight on a netbook, Toshiba has managed to squeeze in a decently sized keyboard and the addition of two Harman Kardon speakers. With the netbooks having such a slim frame, we're wondering if the output from the speakers would feel flaky and weak. Happily, this was not the case in our extended trials. Audio output sounded pretty impressive from such a (relatively) small device.
