I recently was in the market for a new laptop, and I discovered that it can be super overwhelming to find the right one for you. One of the reasons is that a lot of the models are virtually pretty similar, so it can be difficult to determine which version to go with. Well, now that Toshiba’s Chromebook 2 is available, you won’t have to research other models (yeah, it’s that good).
Recently, tons of sites have reviewed the Chromebook 2 laptop, offering their expert opinions on the product. Paste Magazine said, “When it comes to laptops you can buy for under $350, the Full HD Toshiba Chromebook 2 is simply your best option.” While LaptopMag.com gave the verdict of: “a slimmer design, a gorgeous 1080p IPS display and powerful speaker.”
Want to know why Toshiba’s Chromebook 2 is truly changing the laptop game? Read on for the 5 top reasons to pick this product!
1. Cheap price
Sure, I’d like to start off by highlighting all the amazing features of the Chromebook 2. But, really, the number one factor most people consider when buying a new laptop is the price (am I right?). So, it’s crucial to note that Toshiba offers this laptop starting at just $249. Much better than an Apple laptop for over 1,000 bucks, no? If you’re looking for a laptop that will fit within your budget, the Chromebook 2 can’t be beat. You can improve on the price even more by using a Toshiba coupon code too!
2. Display features
As the LaptopMag article points out, the Chromebook 2 display and screen is one of the main reasons to purchase it. The 13.3 inch, diagonal, FHD TruBrite IPS (In Plane Switching) display comes with full HD (1080p) functions. If you love to watch movies or play games on your laptop, the Chromebook 2 is the ideal option for you. Some laptops give you awkward viewing angles, but this model’s IPS feature allows for wider and more accurate viewing angles - plus enhanced color reproduction and accuracy.
Need more convincing? In a review from CNET.com, tech experts said, “The screen itself is fantastic compared to what we’re used to seeing. The colors and viewing angles of displays on competing models look sad by comparison. Pictures and videos pop on this Toshiba and text looks sharp. And it’s a bright display (340 nits) too, which comes in handy when battling glare.”
3. Fast processor
Normally when you’re buying a budget laptop you have to be concerned that you’re not settling for slow processing speeds. Not to worry with the Chromebook 2 - it comes with a dual-core 2.5GHz Intel Celeron processor, which allows all of your programs to run super fast. You can even boot up your computer in an amazingly fast 8 seconds! The processor also helps make sure your download and streaming speeds are quick as well, so you can game or watch your favorite TV show with no worries of frozen screens or that dreaded loading signal popping up.
4. Sleek, portable design
The days of lugging around a heavy, cumbersome laptop are long gone (thank goodness!). The Chromebook 2 was designed so users could easily take it with them on the go. It weighs just 3 pounds, so you’ll never feel like you’re carrying around something heavy, and has a compact, 12 inch body. The slim design means you can store it in your briefcase or purse without feeling like you don’t have room to fit other stuff.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about taking your charger with you everywhere you go - the Chromebook 2 has an extremely long battery life of 9+ hours! Another added benefit? The Chromebook 2 has a more spacious keyboard than most other laptop brands, which means you’ll be more comfortable when you’re typing away.
5. Stellar sound
When LaptopMag highlighted the sound qualities of the Chromebook 2 as being outstanding, they weren’t kidding. Toshiba teamed up with the geniuses at Skullcandy to create an awesome sound system that you’ll be surprised to hear coming out of a laptop. The Skullcandy stereo speakers offer a super rich, clear sound (perfect for playing your favorite tunes).
Speaking of music, since your Chromebook is Google-affiliated, you’ll have access to over 30 million songs (along with any tracks or playlists you bring with you from your hard drive or the cloud). When you buy your Chromebook, you can even get a free 60-day unlimited music pass to rock out to custom radio. Plus, your audio streaming will be seamless with the high-tech dual-antenna 802.11ac WiFi that offers fast connectivity speeds.
