Toshiba Unveils New NB500 / NB520 Netbooks

We have some exciting news now for all the Toshiba fans out there who are possibly thinking about updating their current netbooks. The company has just unveiled two new netbooks — the NB500 and the NB520, which comes with two 2-watt Harman Kardon speakers for superior sound quality.

As reported by Tim Stevens over at, the NB520 features an Atom N550 processor, a 250GB hard drive, a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 and 2GB of DDR3 memory. The battery on the NB520 will give users around 10 hours battery life.

The NB520 also comes with a Sleep and Music feature, which allows users to plug their MP3 player into the netbook and listen to all their favorite tunes through the speakers without turning the PC on. The other model recently unveiled by Toshiba is the slim mini NB500.

The NB500 is ideal for people who prefer slimmer, more mobile devices and offers pretty much the same specs as the NB520, apart from without the sound system and an Intel Atom N455 processor instead of an N550. Both models will be shipping in the first quarter of next year.
