Toshiba Chromebook 2 CB30-B Review
Successful follow-up. A bright IPS screen in Full HD resolution, over 7 hours of battery life and a noiseless device starting at less than 400 Euros (~$444) is here for the taking. However, Toshiba's new lineup totters in terms of stability and configuration options.

Toshiba's Chromebooks are going into the second round. We could closely examine Toshiba's CB lineup for the first time last year. This year, the manufacturer introduces two different laptops based on Chrome OS. In the report, we would like to concentrate on the stronger model. In addition to the more potent BayTrail M CPU and a larger 4 GB working memory, a high-quality, Full HD, IPS screen immediately catches the eye.
To put the review sample in perspective, we will continually use Chromebooks from other manufacturers for comparison. Our review sample is listed at a price of 380 Euros (~$422) although the starting price of this lineup is around 270 Euros (~$300). However, the buyer will have to waive some configuration features in return.
