Chromebook fans like myself have been desperately waiting for one thing to become a standard, a higher resolution display. While the 1366×768 resolution screen isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s definitely not fun to work with, especially on a larger screen. Now though, more and more OEMs are including 1080p displays in their higher end models. Toshiba is the latest to do that with their second Chromebook.
The Toshiba Chromebook 2 is a 13.3 inch Chromebook with a Bay Trail Intel processor and starts at $249, already a great offering. But for $330, things really get interesting. This price point ups the RAM to 4GB and gives the resolution a boost to 1080p. To sweeten the deal even further, the TN screen in the $249 model is swapped for an IPS panel.
The Toshiba Chromebook 2 should be available in the US as soon as next month, and expanding to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand shortly after.
