The Toshiba Chromebook features a 13.3-inch diagonal HD TruBrite™ display with a native 1366 x 768 screen resolution, offering more room for web browsing, document creation, video chatting and apps than a tablet and is better suited for productivity – just like a laptop. A full-size Chrome-optimized keyboard and spacious touchpad makes getting work done a cinch online with an increasing number of productivity-driven apps like Gmail, Calendar, Docs and more that enable users to continue working even when not connected.

The Toshiba Chromebook will super-charge productivity for consumers, schools and businesses, with its 13-inch screen and long battery life,” said Caesar Sengupta, vice president of product management, Google. “With this new addition to the Chromebook family, consumers have even more choices at very affordable prices.”

The new Toshiba Chromebook was designed from the ground up, weighing just 3.3 pounds and featuring a slim 0.8-inch profile sporting a sleek new design with a textured finish. A Haswell-based Intel® Celeron™ processor3 plus 2GB of RAM4 and a 16GB solid state drive5 deliver versatile performance, ultra-fast start up time and a long battery life of up to nine hours6. An everyday cloud companion, the device is equipped with 100GB Google Drive storage7 out of the box enabling a storage place for files and media that can be easily synced, shared and accessed across other smartphone and computing devices. This Chromebook is also equipped with laptop essentials for greater usability, including two USB 3.0 ports8, a full-size HDMI® port, security lock slot and a memory card reader, plus Bluetooth® 4.0 and dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi®.

Chromebooks are designed with security in mind, which helps keep users safe from viruses and malware without having to buy and install security software separately. They also update themselves automatically, for free, so they get faster, more efficient and more feature-rich over time. The Toshiba Chromebook will be available beginning February 16, 2014 at major retailers, e-tailers and direct from Toshiba at Toshiba.com/us.
