Who says netbooks and tablets can't live in harmony? In addition to its unnamed tablet, Toshiba has brought along two 10.1-inch netbooks to CES. The first -- the Mini NB505 -- is really no surprise, and similar to the one released overseas, it has an Intel Atom N455 processor, 1GB of RAM, Windows 7 Starter, and a 250GB hard drive. At $300, it's officially Tosh's cheapest netbook, but we actually have to say the spotted, rubbery lid, which is available in five colors, is a nice addition. On the higher netbook end -- yes, there is still such a thing -- Toshiba has updated the Mini NB305 with an blue, aluminum lid and a dual-core Atom N550 processor. For $380, you get a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and that same great chiclet keyboard and touchpad combo. Alright, so isn't a Libretto W105 refresh, but hey, you can't say Toshiba's lacking in the mobile computing options department.
