Toshiba Chromebook Review
The Chromebook is a $280 laptop running ChromeOS manufactured by Toshiba for Google (sold by amazon here for $279): Toshiba Chromebook CB35-A3120 PLM01U-002005 13.3-Inch Cloud Computer It's specs are decent with a Intel Celeron 2955U 1.4 GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and a 16GB SSD. While using it, it did feel a tad laggy though while running more than 10 tabs in Chrome. It does have great battery time though; Toshiba claims 9.1 hours which was about true in our testing. It comes with a plethora of connectivity ports including an HDMI port, USB port, SD card slot, audio jack and Bluetooth 4.0. The Chromebook felt very sturdy while holding and is fairly light at only 3.3 pounds. The display, while not providing Full HD, looks very good and crisp. Overall, for the very inexpensive price, the Toshiba Chromebook is a great buy.
