A story of two Chromebooks: one measurement does not match all

A tale of two Chromebooks: one size doesn't fit all

I have been spending a whole lot of time with Chromebooks. About one a month for the final six months, if my math is right. These days, although, I’ve discovered myself within the considerably uncommon state of affairs of testing two fashions directly. Two very totally different fashions, I ought to add. On the one hand, we’ve got the Toshiba Chromebook 2, which brings a full HD, 1080p show and a comparatively huge thirteen-inch display. At $330, it is a whole lot in comparison with comparable machines, however it’s additionally on the pricier finish for a laptop computer that principally simply runs the Chrome browser. On the opposite, we’ve Samsung’s latest laptop computer (additionally referred to as the Chromebook 2), which has a smaller measurement and in addition a smaller worth: simply $250. However the design is good and in a method, so is the keyboard. So what issues extra, then? A stunning display or a fake-leather-based lid? Strong audio or being priced to promote? Take a look at our two evaluations (Samsung and Toshiba) and determine for your self.
