There are lots of Chromebooks out there, but one of them stood out at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, taking home a Best of CES 2014 Award. That would be the new Toshiba Chromebook, their first entry into the market.
In case you didn’t know, a Chromebook is a PC than runs on Google’s cloud-based Chrome OS. So, why is Toshiba’s so special? Well...
- It’s the first Chromebook with a 13.3” HD display.
- It’s powered by a speedy Intel Celeron "Haswell" processor.
- It has 2 GB of RAM.
- It has 9 hours of battery life.
Sound good? Wait, there much more:
- It has a 16GB SSD used as a cache drive to improve the performance.
- It has a microSD card slot to add additional storage space.
- It’s thin – just .8 inches.
- It’s light – just 3.3 pounds.
Sounding better? Hold on, not done yet...
- It has 2 USB 3.0 ports for fast and easy connectivity.
- It has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity for fast and seamless communication between devices.
- It supports Wireless N for fast and dependable, dual-band Wi-Fi.

Impressed? Here’s the best part:
It only costs $279.99!
This little gem of a machine is perfect for students or anyone looking to get work done on the go. The performance for the price is unbeatable, (compare with a MacBook Air that will set you back about $1000) and when you throw a Toshiba coupon code into the mix, you are talking value, value, and value.
No wonder it won that Best of CES Award. Sorry other Chromebooks, you have just been schooled.
