Following Google's announcement last September, Toshiba's Digital Products Division has now confirmed that the company is joining the Haswell Chromebook party with a model of its very own. The Toshiba Chromebook is the first to feature a 13-inch HD display, offers dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity and promises day-long battery life.

The Toshiba Chromebook's 13.3-inch, 1366 x 768 resolution TruBrite display size sits between Chrome-based notebooks from Acer and HP. The 3.3 lb (1.5 kg), 0.8-in (20 mm) thin device has an Intel Celeron (Haswell-based) processor at its heart, supported by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB solid state storage with media card expansion, and comes with 100 GB of Google Drive storage.

The Toshiba Chromebook has one full-size HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports

Toshiba has treated its first foray into the Chromebook space to 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, as well as one HDMI and two USB 3.0 ports. There's a full-size keyboard that's been optimized for the Chrome OS, and the onboard battery is reported to offer 9 hours of use between charges.

The Toshiba Chromebook carries a suggested retail price of US$279.99, and will be available from February 16.

I think it is a good deal. If one is just going online and work online, it is a good price for a big notebook computer.

I read that the number of Chromebooks are increasing.

I'm amazed at the number of chromebooks that only offer wifi and not wifi+4g LTE. The ones that do are over priced/poor value.
