Toshiba mini NB200: Keeps on truckin' for nine hours

The Toshiba mini NB200 can compute for up to 9 hours and also boasts a 10-inch screen, all for a very reasonable price

You know what we need? Another laptop. As if by magic, the Toshiba mini NB200 has appeared. It's a 10.1-inch laptop with a widescreen 1,024x600-pixel LED-backlit display. The standard three-cell battery will keep you computing for up to 4 hours, with a nine-cell version clocking up 9 hours.

You'll get to choose from a smorgasbord of chips, including a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 or the newer, w00tier Intel Atom N280, offering a clock speed of 1.66GHz. Both models also pack the Intel 945GSE graphics chipset.

Inside there's also a hard disk drive to store your movies, photos and porn. It's protected by a 3D accelerometer, to cushion blows inflicted when you drop the laptop or use it to set about traffic wardens.

Features include a 0.3-megapixel webcam, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and no less than three USB 2.0 slots. The sleep-and-charge feature lets you charge mobile phones and the like even when the NB200 is turned off.

With all this going on, we hope it's better than the uninspiring NB100 . But who can say? Actually we can, in one of our famous in-depth, no-holds-barred, no-stone-left-unturned reviews, no doubt coming soon.

The Toshiba mini NB200 will be available in brown, black, white or pink in May 2009. Prices will start from around £320.
