Toshiba Chromebook 2 CB30-B Review

The Toshiba Chromebook 2 is a really excellent portable computer. As is the case with all Chromebooks, it’s distinguished by great speed, security, ease, and set up. It’s light, thin, slick, and extremely attractive, with its own upscale textured silver finish, and its quite sharp and angular lines. It undoubtedly has the feel and look of a superior computer.

The total-HD 1920x1080p IPS display is totally amazing, with really sharp text, vibrant and rich color reproductions, and special horizontal and perpendicular viewing angles.

Connectivity is superb, with 802.11a/c WiFi capacity, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 interfaces, a full size HDMI interface, and a full size SD card slot. This is incredibly useful for supplying auxiliary storage and loading pictures from the internet onto the Chromebook. The computer keyboard is outstanding and provides tactile feedback. The receptive and big trackpad is outstanding, and all the conventional multi-touch gestures are easy and extremely flowing.

Browsing and typing the web on this particular computer is an absolute delight. It’s more than sufficient for the normal computer user, although this isn’t an exceptionally rapid or strong central processing unit. An actual power user would likely be better-served by one of the Chromebook versions equipped with Haswell microarchitecture with an Intel Core i3 central processing unit.

In conclusion, the standout attribute of this 13.3-Inch Toshiba Chromebook 2 is undoubtedly its fantastic full-HD 1920x1080p IPS screen. As previously noted, the Chromebook user for whom capacity and the operation of the central processing unit is the most significant characteristic, they would be best-served by one of the Chromebook versions powered by the Intel Core i3.

However for most users,  the 13.3-Inch Toshiba Chromebook 2 is a thin, light, slick, and quite appealing portable computer, with an upscale and superior form factor, and an entirely wonderful HD IPS screen. All these can be had at a very reasonable price directly at its launch in 2014.
