Toshiba doesn't plan to offer any more netbooks in US

Toshiba follows Dell, Lenovo in exiting the netbook business in the US: exec

Toshiba won't bring any new netbooks to the US market, a company executive told Liliputing. This means that the NB510 netbook powered by Intel's Atom N2600 processor introduced at CES won't be sold in the US. Instead, Toshiba America will sell ultrabook computers, which are lighter and thinner, but also more expensive.

One such example includes the Portege Z830 (pictured above). Ultrabooks typically cost twice as much as netbooks, however.

Toshiba isn't the first to leave this market, however, with Lenovo and Dell doing so earlier as well, citing slow sales and a consumer shift to ultrabooks or tablets.
