Toshiba Chromebook 2 (CB30-B-104) review

 

The Toshiba Chromebook 2 is more expensive that other Chromebooks, but the Full HD screen is worth it

Toshiba Chromebook 2 review

 

Toshiba has updated its 13-inch Chromebook model with the new Chromebook 2, boasting improved components and a gorgeous IPS display. We spent some time with it to see if this really is the new king of the Chromebooks. This is the only Toshiba...

If you're happy to live in the cloud for the majority of your tasks, then Toshiba's Chromebook 2 is currently the best way to do it. The device is light, fast, and that screen is worth the money alone. Chromebooks are quickly coming of age, and this...

Toshiba Chromebook 2: A Feast for the Eyes

 

We often complain about the effects of the race to the bottom – the race to the lowest possible price, regardless of what effect that has on overall quality. For more than a decade we've seen very little in the way improvements in display quality on...

I have to admit that when I first saw the pricing on the Toshiba Chromebook 2, I was skeptical. When you have $200 (and sometimes less) alternatives like the Acer C720 floating around, and with a lot of Chromebook users going that route due to pricing...

The Toshiba Chromebook 2 refreshes the original with a slimmer design, a gorgeous 1080p IPS display and powerful speaker.

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...

Bright Full HD screen, IPS display, System performance, Fan-less design

Keyboard's drop, Restrictions in the OS, Matte screen only available with low resolution

The manufacturer has successfully launched on the market a solid Chromebook in the form of the Toshiba CB30. We observed just as many positive as negative aspects throughout our tests. Starting with the casing, we can call the feel, the low weight and...

Toshiba Chromebook 2 Review: A Quick Look At The One Chromebook To Rule Them All

 

I recently decided to replace an ancient laptop. In this Toshiba Chromebook 2 review I'm going to explain why this was the one Chromebook to rule them all.

That Screen, it's incredible

A bigger lip to help open the device would have been very helpful

Toshiba Chromebook 2 (Late 2015, Core i3) Review and Ratings

 

Toshiba freshens its already excellent 13.3-inch Chromebook with a (not very) backlit keyboard and a (very) improved Core i3 CPU.

Snappy Core i3 performance ; Compact size ; Great IPS screen and comfortable keyboard ; Above-average sound

Costs as much as two cheap Chromebooks ; Mediocre battery life ; Dim keyboard backlight

Finally, we ran the system through our battery-rundown trial. Much harder on a machine than everyday browsing and work in Google Docs or Office Online, our battery test involves looping a locally stored video (the full

Speed. Cheapness. Excellent screen.

Being a Chromebook, there are slight issues with working offline or with MS Office documents. Nothing insurmountable
