Toshiba Chromebook confirmed for CES 2014 announcement
Toshiba will unveil its first Chromebook at CES 2014, a picture taken at the Las Vegas trade show reveals (above).
9to5Google has posted an image taken at Toshiba’s display, which clearly reveals that a “Chromebook for everyday” is coming. However, actual details about the device or devices running Chrome OS have not been revealed.
The publication did find a Toshiba Chromebook review that was posted online on Christmas Eve and pulled thereafter.
According to that review, Toshiba will have a $279 Chromebook in stores that will feature a 13.3-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, Intel Celeron 2955U (Haswell), 16GB of storage, 100GB of free Google Drive storage, two USB 3.0 ports, SD card reader, full-size HDMI port, 802.11 n Wi-Fi and Chrome OS under the hood. The device is reportedly just 0.8-inches thick and weighs around 3 pounds. As for the design, the laptop is said to be in line with other Toshiba offerings:
The lid of this model features a subtle texture, a stippled pattern that provides some visual distinction from other inexpensive Chromebooks. The body of the laptop and the trackpad both feature Toshiba’s distinctive U-shape with rounded top corners, in keeping with its current design ID across the brand.
We’ll be back with more details about this yet to be announced Toshiba Chromebook as soon as the company makes it official.
