Chromebooks are a unique class of mobile computing devices, designed specifically for Web-based tasks. They differ from traditional laptops in a few important ways:
Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft's Office web apps.
To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.
Meet the new Toshiba Chromebook—the first device of its kind to feature a 13.3-inch diagonal HD display. Powered by Chrome OS, this Chromebook has everything you need, already built in. It boots in seconds. Has no annoying updates. Browses faster. Sleek, lightweight and always up to date, the Toshiba Chromebook is an ideal choice for everyone. It is easy to use, easy to manage and convenient for everyday use.
It's the only Chromebook to deliver the best of the web on a gorgeous 13.3-inch diagonal HD TruBrite screen. Offering more room for web browsing, document creation, video chatting and apps than a tablet and is better suited for productivity—just like a laptop. A full-size Chrome keyboard and spacious touchpad makes getting work done a cinch online with an increasing number of productivity-driven apps like Gmail, Calendar, Docs and more that enable users to continue working even when not connected.
With up to 9 hours of battery life*, the Toshiba Chromebook is highly portable with a sleek and lightweight design. It weighs just 3.3 pounds and features a slim, less-than-an-inch profile and textured finish. Powered by the Intel Celeron processor, plus 2GB of RAM and a 16GB solid state drive, it starts up in seconds and enables you to breeze through the web at lightning speed.

Chromebooks are designed from the ground up with security in mind, to help keep you safe from viruses and malware without having to buy and install security software separately. They also update themselves automatically, for free. And you won't have to purchase or install upgrades manually. Now that's easy.
Ideal for growing families, Chromebook features multi-user support so you can create a custom experience for each user. Just turn on your Chromebook, tap your photo and sign in to your own homescreen, apps, email, photos and storage.
Built for the cloud, Chromebook lets you save and access your growing collection of files, photos and entertainment from your smartphone or PC, thanks to 100GB of Google Drive online file storage space included.
