Finally the wait is over; all you need is to ask your friends and relatives based in UK and US to buy a Toshiba Chromebook for yourself as the company has launched their very first Chromebook to cater the users in US and UK.
In 2014 at Consumer Electronics Show held at Las Vegas, Toshiba originally revealed that its new Chromebook would launch on 16 February. However, company has postponed that release date ahead a couple of weeks, though.
Recently Toshiba released its Haswell-powered Chrome OS laptop to hit the markets in UK and US. The price tag associated with the chromebook on its US website is $299.99. Well the current price is about $20 more than what Toshiba previously said the laptop would cost.
Some other online retail platforms like Adorama and Amazon have listed the Toshiba Chromebook for $280. The Amazon wing of UK is selling the Toshiba Chromebook for £249. The shipments are expected to begin on 10 February from Amazon UK.
Toshiba’s first Chromebook features a 13.3-inch 1366 x 768 display, HD webcam, stereo speakers, full-size keyboard, HDMI socket, 16GB SSD, 100GB of Google Drive, 2GB of RAM, 9-hour battery life, two USB 3.0 ports, and an SD card slot. There’s also Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
“We see great potential in Chrome OS as it offers both consumers and educators a simple and easy-to-use computing experience,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “We believe that bringing a more versatile 13-inch model to market will help drive the entire category forward by giving customers an option that opens new doors for productivity, not only for consumers, but also students and educators.”
With all the above features loaded Toshiba’s Chromebook also sports a “light gold” plastic case.
