Toshiba’s Eerie Sign Language Robot Will Silently Stare Into Your Soul

Proving its engineers are just as capable as anyone at developing a creepy human-like robot that embraces the Uncanny Valley, Toshiba has developed an android that specializes in sign language thanks to a pair of highly articulated hands. One day the company hopes it could serve as an artificial receptionist, but it’s probably going to [...]

Toshiba Is Getting Out of the Consumer PC Racket in Some Regions (Updated)

Earlier this year, Sony walked away from laptops when it sold off its Vaio business . Now Toshiba is following suit. Nothing’s getting sold this time around, but the Japanese company has said it’s shying away from consumer PCs in certain low-profit regions in favor of beefing up business offerings.

As tablets fail to impress, could the netbook rise again?

The netbook might be making a comeback. Manufacturers have flocked to the IFA conference to showcase their latest products, and more than a few of them are announcing cheap laptops, even though that market was declared dead after demand for netbooks all but disappeared in the beginning of 2013. Is that about to change? Asus, Toshiba, [...]

Toshiba’s New Robovac Uses Three Times the Sensors for Less Collisions

With countless new models released every year, the robovac arms race seems happy to ignore features like battery life, storage capacity, and even price. What’s most important these days is how intelligently an autonomous vacuum can navigate its surroundings, so Toshiba’s crammed some 27 sensors into its new Torneo Robo, so it always knows what [...]

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.

What the hell is 4K anyway? Your 2014 CES glossary

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…

The Laptops Worth Buying This Holiday Season

The Laptops Worth Buying This Holiday Season

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.
