Design and features
When you buy a PC for $300, especially if it's not a pocket-size 8-inch slate-style or 11-inch clamshell, you really can't in all fairness expect it to look or feel like much. By those modest standards, the Toshiba Chromebook exceeds expectations. It's plastic body is subtly textured on the back of the lid and bottom surface (making it less likely to slip from your hands while carrying it), and the interior matte silver, offset by a black keyboard that looks more than little like it came from Cupertino.
If you buy into the Chromebook argument, that of a system that lives 90-plus percent of its useful life online, running Web-based in-browser apps and using cloud-based storage, the Toshiba Chromebook offers a bit more functionality than rock-bottom 11-inch versions, for only a little more money. That said, still stands as the best overall Chromebook value, adding a functional touch screen to an 11-inch model for the same $299.
I had my eye set on the Toshiba Chromebook 2 FHD, loved everything about it when I saw it at the store. I stumbled across a Pixel for sale near me and just ponied up the dough for it.
Wow! This thing is just gorgeous.
