Toshiba announced their first Chromebook at CES yesterday, and it’s the first one with a 13.3-inch display, priced under 300 bucks. Haswell processor and nine hours of battery life make it an interesting choice.

We haven’t had a chance to get our hands on the new unit yet, so we’re not sure how the keyboard feels or what the display looks like in person. It’s a standard 1366×768 resolution panel, so the pixels will be slightly bigger than the other 11-inch Chromebooks that have the same resolution, but it should also be a little easier to see the screen this way.
This unit weighs 3.3 pounds and is 0.8-inch thick. It’s got only 2 GB of RAM compared to some of the other models on the market with 4 GB, but a Chromebook doesn’t really need a ton of memory to begin with. 16 GB of solid state storage, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, memory card reader, and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.
The new Chromebook is available starting February 16th everywhere.
