Looks identical to the samsung chromebook.
I have a Samsung Chromebook and a Macbook Pro, to which the resemblance is far closer. The Samsung has that odd hinge popping up, and puts the ports on the rear, where they are inconvenient, to say the least. Toshiba is filling a small gap in the Chromebook line, slotting in between the first generation designs and the HP Chromebook 14. At the price, they should sell well. I'd still like to see something with a sharp IPS display, a backlit keyboard, and a 32gb SSD/4gb RAM option, but those features are going to push up the price point.
It would be nice to see something a little more solidly built, and with a somewhat improved screen. 1440x900 even. I guess they're feeling the market out, but I'd be ready to pay £300-350, especially as my Samsung is my most used computer and is showing the physical wear and tear of a year of hard use.
i really like the black bezel in the third pic. What is that the kirabook ? it looks beautiful with the black bezel <3 too bad the price is almost 2k :(
same here bro. I would be willing to pay 2-3 hundred more to get a premium macbook air looking chromebook with maybe a tad more ram. Anyway its a seen one with a 13.3" screen
Not very innovative at all! Chromebooks need to be connected to get the best out of them - no 4g or even 3g??? What's the point in having superb portability if you're tied to wifi spots? Quality wise, seems same as all the rest. Hope the other companies can come up with something better than this!
Who do I have to do to get a Chromebook designed with a back-lit keyboard.
Chromebooks have an increasing amount of offline apps now. It's not a "brick" if you don't have WiFi. Alternatively, HP just released a 14" Chromebook with 2GB of T-Mobile 4G for free every month.
EOL laptops are now rebranded chromebooks. no thank you
For internet surfing these machines are fine, but for productivity (particularly in terms of printers) they are very limited.
I use one regularly and have never had any problems. Indeed, my Windows PC is the one that saps productivity with its constant updates, security worries and expensive battery-hogging applications.
Not invented here, right?
The same is true for any computer. You tried surviving offline using Windows? Not much fun.
The LG Chromebase all-in-one is coming for $349 -- IPS 21.5" monitor. Should be interesting. Hope that the tabs fonts are not too tiny on Chrome OS browser.
