CES 2014: Toshiba debuts the first 13-inch Chromebook

1:26 /

Toshiba enters the Chromebook race with a 13-inch model for under $300.

I'm Dan Ackerman here at CES 2014 with Toshiba's first entry into the ever-growing Chromebook market and typically called the Toshiba's Chromebook, and it is interesting because it is the first 13-inch Chromebook that we've seen. There are a lot of 11-inch ones, a lot of 14-inch ones, but I think 13 inches is really the optimal size if you want to mix productivity and portability, it's big enough that you can work on it, you know, pretty much all day long but it's small enough that you can carry it around in your shoulder bag, if not every day at least several days a week and when you wanna take a Chromebook which is relying on that Chrome operating system really needs to be online all the time and use it for productivity, you want something that you could still, you know, go to the coffee shop, get on the Wi-Fi there, you know, take to the airport lounge and use it there. It's $279 which is right around where Chromebooks should be. You have to spend a little bit more, you get some other models that have like, you know, touchscreens and higher resolutions but for a basic Chromebook, you know, you kind of wanna be just under 300 bucks and I like that the design is a little bit nicer than some of the other really inexpensive Chromebooks we've seen and you do get a couple of USB ports and you get an HDMI output which I always appreciate having especially if, you know, you can stream to movies and open the video somewhere else. I'm Dan Ackerman at CES 2014 with the Toshiba Chromebook.
