$50 would be a great price for any 1TB external hard drive. But it’s absolutely unheard of for the Toshiba Canvio Aerocast, which includes an SD card slot for automatic photo backups, a built-in battery, and Wi-Fi to let you access the drive’s contents wirelessly from your phones, tablets, and laptops.

Don’t think Republicans can be punk rock? Well, in 1987, they staged one of the most punk rock protests that Capitol Hill has ever seen. They smashed a boombox to pieces with some sledgehammers. The part that was slightly less punk rock? They smashed it because they were mad at Toshiba for making electronics sold […]
If you’re the owner of a Toshiba laptop, there’s a chance its battery could overheat and go kaboom and melt your machine—which is why the Japanese electronics giant recalled a bunch of Panasonic battery packs this week. Read more… Continue Reading from the Source

It’s already been almost five years since the nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and the inspection and clean-up is going to last decades. Our best weapon? Amazing robots, like this one Toshiba announced on Monday. Read more… Continue Reading from the Source
Earlier this year, it came to light that Toshiba had exaggerated its operating profits by $1.2 billion over the past six years. Now, it looks set to report a staggering $4.5 billion of losses—and cut 6,800 jobs as a result. Read more… Continue Reading from the Source
For many, a laptop is a deeply personal device, one that gets used and abused even more than a smartphone. So you really want to love using it—especially if you’re going to spend upwards of $1,600 on something like Toshiba’s new Satellite Radius 12. But the impressive hardware doesn’t make this laptop worth the price […]

It’s easy enough to find ultra-fast SD cards—if you’ve got the cash —but super speedy microSD cards are harder to come by. No longer: Toshiba has just launched the world’s fastest, and it should breathe life into your compact mirrorless camera. Read more… Continue Reading from the Source
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.
It’s a concept but it’s a super fun one. Toshiba’s shape-shifting concept 5-in-1 PC somehow manages to be a laptop, a tablet, a convertible tablet, a canvas, and a presentation TV-type device. A few of those five might be redundant (and/or useless), bu…

Clean lines and a larger display than most for $279.99
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.
This week marks the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), an orgy of gadgetry where companies big and small show off what we’re told is the latest in state-of-the-art technology. And yet the event has become so tiresome for some tech reporters that Wired went so far as to turn its coverage into a competitive reporter-vs-reporter “thunderdome” just to…
Toshiba is coming out with a Chromebook of its own. It’s slightly larger than the Pixel, and more than a whole thousand bucks cheaper. Read more…
If you’re buying a new laptop this holiday season, you should probably get a MacBook Air. Its build quality is best-in-breed, its 12-15 hour battery life (on the 13″ model) absolutely embarrasses the competition, and its operating system is extremely reliable and polished. Plus, despite what you may have heard about Apple products, it’s actually quite affordable compared to the competition.
Both new and refreshed models coming soon with Intel's latest processor tech Google has announced in conjunction with Intel today that the companies will be bringing multiple new Chromebook and Chromebox devices based on the newest Haswell proces…
