Reviews for the Toshiba CB30-102

80% Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Toshiba CB30-102 ranks among the best-value mid-size laptops on the market. It’s more powerful and cheaper than the 14-inch HP Pavilion Chromebook while offering much better battery life. Things are less clear-cut when compared with the benchmark-setting Acer C720, though. The Acer C720 is cheaper and has marginally better performance, but the CB30-102 has a larger screen. If you want a great value Chromebook with a fairly large screen, the Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 is the one to buy.

Toshiba’s 13-Inch Chromebook Is a Low-Cost, No-Frills Laptop

Finally, the battery test: Our harsh tests on laptops and tablets usually involve turning off all power savers, popping the display up to full brightness, running an email app and playing locally-stored iTunes files on a continuous loop. Since you can’t install iTunes on a Chromebook, and there are no power-saving settings, I tweaked this test a bit. Instead, I streamed music nonstop through Google Play. I also installed a Chrome browser extension called Keep Awake that kept the laptop from going into sleep mode.

80% Toshiba CB30-102 review: Chromebook boasting a 13.3" screen and Intel Celeron processor
Source: PC Advisor English
The usual caveat of ‘Chromebooks aren't for everyone' of course applies, but the Toshiba CB30 is a very useable and capable laptop for anyone who spends the majority of their computing time online using Google services. The increased screen size is a definite bonus over 11.6in models, even if it isn't a high-quality display, while the plastic construction keeps the weight to a portable 1.5 kg. For £250 this is a great device if your creative and privacy needs are modest.
