Toshiba is adding a new Chromebook to its lineup. At first glance the new Toshiba Chromebook CB30-007 looks just like the model the company launched earlier this year. But the first Toshiba Chromebook sports an Intel Celeron 2955 Haswell processor. The new model has a lower-power Celeron N2830 Bay Trail chip.

The new Bay Trail model showed up first in Australia, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it makes it to the US and Europe eventually.

Update: The Toshiba Chromebook 2 is coming to America in October for $250 and up.

Toshiba’s new Chromebook joins a growing number of laptops that pair Google’s Chrome operating system with a low-power Intel Bay Trail processor. Asus has two models. Acer has one too. HP is getting ready to launch one… you get the idea.

The Toshiba Chromebook CB30-007 features an Intel Celeron N2830 dual-core processor, a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel matte diesplay, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Unfortunately the RAM is not user upgradeable.

Update: There’s also a model with 4GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 9 hours of battery life, and a $330 price tag on the way. 

There’s a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 44Whr battery for up to 10.5 hours of run time.

The notebook measures 12.6″ x 8.4″  x 0.76″ and weighs about 3 pounds.

US pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but the Bay Trail version of Toshiba’s Chromebook seems to be about the same price as a Haswell model in Australia. But it’s a tad thinner and lighter and gets slightly better battery life. On the other hand, it won’t be quite as fast.

  1. I would rather have a little more speed, than a longer battery life.
