$280 Toshiba Chromebook goes up for preorder

Toshiba’s web-centric Chromebook is the first Chrome OS laptop to ship with a 13.3 display. 

The laptop, which has a $280 price tag, can now be pre-ordered on Amazon.

Key features include Intel’s Celeron 2955U Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a purported 9 hour battery life.

Additional specs? Two USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI port and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.

As Liliputing’s Brad Linder notes, while the Toshiba Chromebook may not have an abundance of storage, it does include an SD card slot which can be used to transfer files or add extra space. 

Toshiba’s Chromebook can be pre-ordered on Amazon here for $280, with shipping expected to kick off before or on February 16th.
