Toshiba presents new Chromebooks

Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., has announced two new Chromebook laptops, which have come into existence in order to refresh the current Toshiba Chromebook 2 line. The new Chromebooks feature updated hardware but carry the same Chromebook 2 name so there might be some confusion among potential buyers.

The two new Chromebooks offer fifth generation Intel Core i3 and Celeron processors and up to 4 GB of RAM, which results in much better performance when it comes to multitasking and working on the Internet. Moreover, both models come with an all-new LED backlit keyboard for a more seamless experience when web browsing, watching movies, listening to music and getting work done, even in low light environments.

“As more people use Chromebooks for productivity and rely more often on the web for content creation and entertainment, devices need to be better equipped for these higher processing demands and built with hardware features that optimize Chrome OS,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “With the launch of our latest Chromebook 2 models, Toshiba delivers brilliant performance for an outstanding experience on and off the web with entertainment-inspired hardware features that make the most of Chrome OS and enable customers to get things done faster wherever their Chromebook 2 takes them.”

The rest of the tech specs of the Chromebook 2 seem to have been unchanged so expect to find the same brilliant 13.3-inch diagonal display with IPS technology at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) that delivers sharpened color reproduction and accuracy, plus wider, more accurate viewing capabilities. The Chromebook 2 offers ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI output, a SD card slot, a security lock slot and an 8.5-hour battery life. Users will also enjoy two front-facing stereo speakers for high quality audio, 100 GB of Google Drive storage, 90-days of free unlimited music streaming on Google Play, 12 in-air passes for Gogo Inflight Internet and more – all included with the device.

The new Chromebook models will be available in October 2015 at various retailers and online. The Celeron-based model will cost USD 329.99, while the Core i3 version will sell for USD 429.99.
