After many hours of fruitless searching, I saw this machine on John Lewis. I can't say anything about it grabbed me at first, but I looked at the specs and saw that it had a Full HD (IPS) Display, was light, thin, and an incredible 10 hours battery life... It seemed too good to be true, and it almost was, since it is running Chrome OS, something I'd completely dismissed in the past.
But I did some more research and looked at my own computer usage and saw that, actually, it seemed to fit my needs perfectly. Essentially, it's a glorified chrome web browser, though there are a few extra things it can do. Anything you do in your chrome browser at home, you can do on this. That includes:
Editing and writing word documents in Google Docs or Office Online, whichever takes your fancy
Listening to music through Spotify web player
Watching youtube videos (No problems playing 1080p content here)
Sending and receiving emails
Basic photo and video editing
I soon realised that almost everything I was doing on my original computer, I was doing in chrome (bar photoshop, though there's now a version of photoshop for Chrome OS). So the Chrome operating system made sense to me.Read more ›
So I had a Macbook Pro. It was coming up to a refresh and I thought ' I don't really want to spend a £1000 on a new computer'. I'm getting old or more sensible, or both. Oh God.
So before I bought a Chromebook, I made myself use only the Chrome browser for a month, and nothing else on my Macbook.
This was odd because it did prove the point, I didn't use much else, but not only that, it simplified things and found myself avoiding things that I couldn't do in a browser.
So I bought an Asus C300 as an entry to the Chromebook world, used it for 4 weeks, realised it was almost perfect.... It was quick, it looked ok, it did most things I needed. It lacked one thing, a decent screen. To the degree it bothered me. A lot.
So I bought this, the Toshiba Chromebook 2, I nearly bought the Pixel and suspect I will, but this is fantastic.
The screen is brilliant and the keyboard and track-pad are superb. The screen is better than my Macbook Pro (2011), the keyboard definitely better than the Asus C300. While that was decent, this one, to my fingers is pretty close to the Macbook, the Asus just felt a bit too flexible.
Battery life is very good, about 7-8 hours, pretty heavy use. The Asus was a bit nuts here, it got almost 11 hours, I think because of the low res screen, swings and roundabouts...
This takes a 128GB SD card, which I have, with all my old iTunes music on, and movies, this works perfectly and plays straight from sd card.
It only has 16 GB of built in storage, its really strange but you don't use it! You get 100GB free storage for 2 years anyway from google in the Google drive Cloud so everything is backed up automatically as you write. You don't press save at all, its pretty cool.Read more ›
Firstly the design. A very good looking Chromebook, my favourite currently available. Much nicer looking then (in my opinion) the clunky offerings from Acer and the blandness of the Asus Chromebooks. The small indents give a somewhat quality feel to the product, and the good quality hinges combined with the thinness all give the Toshiba Chromebook 2 a feel of quality far above it's price range. The only issue being the screen panel feels a little flimsy.
As I am using this for lecture note taking and essay work the keyboard and mouse is key to me. The keyboard is very well built, the keys feels secure and are very responsive. The black keys on the white surround gives it a decent look, very happy here. The track pad is also very responsive, only niggle being the left click depression needed is a little deep. Barely noticeable however.
I went with the standard definition as the HD seems very hard to source in the UK and it was on sale for £190 at the time. I realised I did not really require 1080p for my university needs. The screen is pretty good, however it doesn't deal with bright light or strange viewing angles too well, however compared to my old HP Chromebook 11 G2 it is wonderful! For £190 really very little to complain about.
I have been using the Toshiba Chromebook 2 for 1 week now and I have been satisfied with the CPU overall. I don't ask much of my Chromebook mainly Google Docs, YouTube and Facebook. All three of these ran well at the same time. I have up to 10(e) tabs often running when I am researching, and the Intel core handled all this fine.Read more ›
