Review Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 Notebook

 

For grandpa. Not interested in Windows? Chrome OS is the alternative offered on this laptop. No complicated hardware settings; just open it up and start surfing. Does Toshiba do a good job with this non-Windows concept?

Very light, Excellent battery life, Good application performance, Very inexpensive, Ideal for beginning computer users, Chrome OS has matured. Surfing, handling files and Google Drive, multimedia -- everything works right from the start

Cheap construction, TN display with weak viewing angles, Below-average keyboard, High-pitched, clanging speakers, Low webcam quality, If it is a surfing machine, why not equip it with decent input devices? More feedback would have done the keys a world...

Toshiba's CB30 is one of the best Chromebooks we've seen so far, but its screen isn't great

Good styling ; Comfortable to use ; Full-sized HDMI port and SD card slot

Screen is very glossy ; Screen definition and contrast could be better

Screen is very glossy ; Screen definition and contrast could be better

Toshiba's Chromebook CB30 possesses good styling and a useful array of features. At 13.3 inches, it's also a comfortable Chromebook to use. Importantly, it performs swiftly and can do a good job when streaming Web video. However, it has a screen that...

Toshiba CB30-102 review

 

Chromebooks are Google's vision of how a modern laptop should be. Generally they're lightweight, relatively cheap, and feature an interface optimised entirely for web use.

The usual caveat of ‘Chromebooks aren't for everyone' of course applies, but the Toshiba CB30 is a very useable and capable laptop for anyone who spends the majority of their computing time online using Google services. The increased screen size is a...

Toshiba CB30-102 Chromebook review

 

We're seeing more and more Chromebooks making their way onto themarket and the CB30-102 is the first from Toshiba. With itslightweight chassis, Intel Celeron processor and 13.3-inch HDscreen, can it deliver the goods it promises?

Solidly built, decent screen, good battery life, low price

Less than full-HD screen, a bit on the bulky side

As Chromebooks go the Toshiba CB30-102 is one of the moreluxurious with its 13-inch screen and relatively fast processor. Itsuffers from the usual Chromebook issues -- really needs aninternet connection to be at its best, limited in its array of apps--...

Toshiba's CB30-102 13.3in Chromebook – imagine a tablet with a keyboard

 

Review The typical low price of a Chromebook suggests you'll not be buying into a quality product with pleasing design aesthetics. Yet it seems that the brains behind Toshiba's latest Chromebook weren't going to be swayed by such presumptions.

I love this. It's so light and quick and the battery life is indeed great. I found it really easy to get used to although I've still yet to find the forward delete button, so I'm having to back delete all the time. Also, I still have issues copy and...
