The Toshiba NB505-N508 is an extremely budget-friendly netbook released as a competitor to Toshiba’s AOD255E-13444. It shares the same single-core 1.66GHz processor and 5400rpm hard disc drive, but it hosts weaker memory. In particular, it drops from 1GB of 1066MHz DDR3 to 1GB of 667MHz DDR2, which translates to slower processing speeds. However, the NB505-N508 has an improved 4-in-1 memory card reader that supports SD, SDHC, SDXC, and MMC, versus just SD and MMC. Otherwise a duplicate, it too hosts wired/wireless connectivity for 24/7 networking, a web camera for web conferencing, and a multi gesture touchpad for easily navigating the net.
