Toshiba has released its first ever Chrome OS powered laptop, a 13.3-inch Chromebook, earlier than the proposed and has announced that it will be available for purchase starting next Monday for £249.
Powered by dual-core Intel Celeron 2955U processor clocked at 1.4GHz, Toshiba’s debut Chromebook packs 13.3-inch display with 1,366 x 768 HD 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, an integrated Intel HD graphics, 16GB SSD, 100GB of Google Drive storage, stereo speakers, HD webcam, SD Card slot, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Chromebook weighs 1.5Kg, will be available in Silver finish and the Japanese company claims a 9-hour battery life.
The Chromebook has been released in the US as well and has been listed on Toshiba’s website for $299.99 – that’s about $20 more than previously announced price.
Matt McDowell, Toshiba Europe marketing director of the Lifestyle Products and Services Group said, “It’s an all-in, fast and user-friendly Chrome OS device – which makes it ideal for everyone from business professionals looking for new ways of working, to consumers who already use the cloud, to students looking for a light, fashionable and affordable device.”
