Toshiba Chromebook

 

If you're shopping for an inexpensive laptop, especially under $400 or so, you've almost certainly considered a system running Google's Chrome OS rather than Windows. Known as Chromebooks, these laptops from PC makers such as Acer and HP are sold...

The 13-inch Toshiba Chromebook has a bigger screen and better keyboard than smaller 11-inch models, and battery life is excellent for a sub-$300 system. Ports include HDMI-out and dual USB 3.0.

This Chromebook suffers from the same limitations as other Chrome OS products, including the inability to run native software and very small onboard storage. Some other Chromebooks are branching out, with touch screens and higher resolutions.

Toshiba enters the growing Chromebook market with the first 13-inch model. It's a great size for switching between travel and home/office use and feels comfortable to type on, but other Chromebooks offer more features for the same price.

Substandard screen ; Poor multitasking performance

The 13-inch MacBook Air Toshiba's Chromebook is most certainly not. This laptop isn't super stylish, nor is it the portable powerhouse you're looking for. But what Toshiba managed to accomplish in style and build for under $300 is undoubtedly impressive.

There's a lot to like about Toshiba's first Chromebook

Spacious and comfortable keyboard ; Quick boot-up times ; Good battery life ; Plenty of connectivity

Unresponsive trackpad ; High profile apps missing from Chrome Store ; No 3G or 4G connectivity option

We really have some issues with the display brightness as well. The default setting is far too dim to be useful so you'll need to crank it up reasonably high to get the best viewing experience. The screen is very reflective as well so it's not very...

"I have one and I love it."

 

Best money I have spent on a portable device.

Price. Speed. Convenience.

After Windows and Macs it does have a learning curve. Once figured out all cons become pros.
