Here's the glossiness of the screen for you:
Do I even need a mirror? It's pretty terrible for reflectivity, even compared to other glossy screens.
Even on full brightness, I can see my hands on the keyboard. I don't know why Toshiba chromed out the screen, of all things. The whole rest of the device has a matte finish, so why did the screen need to be blinged? Its just annoying. In comparison, the W7s is highly understated.
It takes forever to charge - I plugged it in for an hour, with about 10% battery remaining, and when I took it off charge again, I had around 21% capacity remaining. (As I type this on the Toshi, I ask myself - is TypePad's editor really that resource intensive? I'm lagging, a lot. It shouldn't be this bad. I want a CULV machine.)
Today was a travel day, so not a lot of computer usage and not much to share, other than to mention that switching from the W7S to the NB205 is a pretty painful experience. I've pretty much covered all of the parts of the Toshiba that stand out to me, and I have to wonder, really? Laptop Mag's "best netbook ever made", Editor's Choice winning, etc, etc, this is it? Maybe it was killed by my high expectations, but I feel rather underwhelmed by the NB205, especially when CULV ultraportables start hitting netbook pricepoints. Vive la révolution technologique!
