Toshiba did not release any Chrome OS-powered device in the past but now it finally enters this market in style thanks to the world's first 13.3-inch Chromebook. The Haswell-powered Toshiba Chromebook was announced a month ago and was expected to become available on the 16th of February. Fortunately for those interested, this notebook can be already pre-ordered from Amazon UK and US, as well as from Toshiba's own online store.

"Sleek, lightweight and always up to date", Toshiba's Chromebook has the following technical specs and features:

  • Processor: Intel Celeron 2955U 1.4 GHz with Intel HD graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB DDR3 RAM; 16 GB SSD and 100 GB Google Drive cloud storage
  • Display: 13.3-inch HD TruBrite LED backlit with 1,366X768 pixels
  • Connectivity: dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 2XUSB 3.0, HDMI, memory card reader 
  • Operating system: Google Chrome OS
  • Weight/Dimensions: 3.3 pounds; 8.90X12.90X0.80 inches

This first Chromebook from Toshiba comes in a brushed shiny silver finish and its 4-cell, 54 Whr Li-ion battery can provide an autonomy of up to 9 hours. Amazon's pre-order price is $279 for the US and £249 for UK. First units are expected to ship on February 10 in the UK and "within 2 to 4 weeks" in the US.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
