Impress has revealed Toshiba’s latest netbook – the NB100 series (NB100H and HF) and will be expected to retail this month.

Prices of these netbooks will cost around 65,000 yen (S$1005).

Key differences between the variations available are:

NB100/HF

  • Comes with 64GB SSD as storage
  • OS is loaded with Windows Vista SP1
  • Memory comes with either 1GB or 2GB

NB100/H

  • Uses a standard 160GB hard disk as storage
  • OS is loaded with Windows XP SP3
  • Only 1GB memory

Other than that, the other specifications are the same between the 2 models including  the looks

  • Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz)
  • Intel 945 GME Express chipset
  • 1024×600 resolution on a 8.9″ display that is claimed to be low reflective.
  • Weight: NB100/HF is at 1025grams, NB100H at 1059grams. The battery, a 38Wh model is at 224grams.

Size: 225x190mm

A test on battery life which involves turning the brightness to the maximum, wireless and bluetooth activated and a video (WMV9, bit rate 1156kbps, 640 × 480 resolution) playing continuously the background.

The results –  NB100 about 1 hour and 48 minutes while, NB100/HF about 2 hours, 46 minutes.

The only complaint however, was the touch pad, there is no gap between the pad and click buttons, hence care is needed during operation.
