Another day, another Atom N450-based netbook launch. This one comes courtesy of Toshiba, who on Monday announced its version of a next-gen netbook, the mini NB305.

"Our first netbook in the U.S. market stood out from the competition because we fixed what was broken in the previous generation of netbooks," said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba, Digital Products Division. "As the category continues to evolve, we're pushing the envelope even further to deliver the next generation that again exceeds customer expectations with better performance, an even higher battery life rating, and smarter features that enhance the mobile computing experience."

In addition to cruising along with Intel's Atom N450 processor, Toshiba says the mini NB305 comes with a full-size keyboard and full-size touchpad. The 10.1-inch netbook also features 1GB of DDR2-800 memory (upgradeable to 2GB), up to a 250GB HDD along with Toshiba's Hard Drive Impact Sensor technology, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, three USB ports (one of them Sleep-and-Charge capable), a memory card reader, webcam, a 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Starter Edition.

The mini NB305 will go on sale on January 12 with prices ranging from $350 to $400.
