When Toshiba had introduced their second version of Chromebook, it was really liked by the gadget freaks and tech-savvies in all over the world. It is still one of the best choices than many other Chromebooks. You can buy this notebook in two distinctive versions. One is not HD (1366 x 768) and the Full HD version (1920 x 1080) – there is a difference of $50 price between both of the versions. The Full HD version is the logical choice – it is far better than the standard version.
The poor quality and dull design are common in many of the cheap Chromebooks – that does not describe the Toshiba Chromebook 2 HD. You’d get the best value for your money with excellent and attractive screen. The reviews about this chromebook are mixed but the best quality features and sturdy body make it worth buying for students, employees and even gamers. Have a look at few of the likes and dislikes about this product.

The Chromebook 2 by Toshiba can be taken anywhere by putting inside backpack or messenger bag as this is the well-proportioned laptop. The overall weight is light – will not be a problem for everyone to carry. Slightly thicker than MacBook Air and identical to its screen size, this chromebook is a perfect pick from many aspects. It has taken tips of design from MacBook Air and identical in shape to most new notebooks. The chunky base and curved corners give this device a unique overall look. The features in design that stand it out from the crowd are the full of texture dot pattern on the top and well-finished plastic. The ample and basic connections have also been placed on the correct sides.
The crowning glory of Toshiba’s Chromebook 2 is the IPS Display with 13.3” of screen. It looks and feels premium because of the crisp HD display. For such a cheap laptop, the quality of black is impressive with bright and rich colors. However, the colors distort and brightness drops at big viewing angles. Topping out at 300 nits it bright and lovely too. The hidden speakers beneath the keyboard are turned by SkullCandy. The music and videophiles will enjoy the sound it produces.
Performance wise, Toshiba Chromebook 2 is as good as many newer notebooks. The 4 GB RAM and Celeron Processor play a vital role to enhance the speed of this notebook. The 16 GB storage is sufficient to store local files – but as with most chrome OS devices…you’ll store most files on the cloud. It has Bluetooth 4.0 and the fastest version of Wireless Network 802.11ac+agn. It seems to work well in streaming video too.
The single charge of Chromebook 2 would give you up to 9 hours computing time. These claims seem to be solid.
Toshiba Chromebook 2 Full-HD Review:
“As someone who writes a lot, the keyboard is a joy to use. The keys have a nice little spring to them, and it feels natural and comfortable. The touchpad is very accurate, and I don’t need or even want to use a separate mouse.”
“Probably the best laptop I’ve ever owned. Great display and sound. It does run on Chrome’s OS so be warned if no prior research was done, that you cannot run any standalone software on this just chrome’s add-ons.”
“Bought this for school. Perfect little device for that reason. All of my papers can be written in Google Docs and access to them is fast with this instant boot device. Fits nicely in my backpack, reducing the weight compared to a laptop.”
