Toshiba’s first Chromebook now available for $299

Toshiba Chromebook

Higher-end price gets you a solid machine with the proper specs and 9 hours of battery

Following up on an initial announcement at CES 2014, Toshiba has put its first Chromebook offering up for sale at its online store. Coming in at $299 it’s more expensive than the $279 price point we were told back in January, but isn’t far out of the realm of what Chromebooks being sold at currently.

For that price you’re getting a relatively run-of-the-mill looking laptop with a silver plastic frame, 13.3-inch 1366×768 display, an Intel Celeron 2955U processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, USB 3.0 and SDcard ports and all other standard appointments you expect for this class of device. Packing a larger screen than many of its competitors the Toshiba CB30-A3120 (great name) comes in at 3.3 lbs, which is a bit hefty but also gives it an expected 9 hours of battery life.

If you’re interested in checking out one of these new Toshiba Chromebooks — we certainly thought it was a pretty nice machine back at CES — you can do so direct from Toshiba at the link below. You’ll even get free shipping.

Toshiba unveils its first Chromebook effort at CES

Clean lines and a larger display than most for $279.99

Android Central @ CES

Toshiba today ahead of CES in Las Vegas unveiled its first foray into the Chromebook market. Simply referred to as the “Toshiba Chromebook” (which perhaps is better than some made-up name anyway), this guy’s essentially what we’ve seen (internally, anyway), from the Acer C720.

The $279 Chromebook sports a 13.3-inch display with a 1366 x 768 resolution, which isn’t going to win any awards anytime soon. It weights a mere 3.3 pounds, is powered by a Haswell-based Intel Celeron processor and rocks a couple gigabytes of RAM and a 16GB solid-state drive. Plus, you get 100GB of Google Drive storage. It also has a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a full-size HDMI port, SDcard reader, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wifi a/b/g/n.

The Toshiba Chromebook will be available starting February 16th.

If you’re buying a new laptop this holiday season, you should probably get a MacBook Air.

Plus, despite what you may have heard about Apple products, it’s actually quite affordable compared to the competition.
