UPDATE: When I wrote this review the Celeron 3215U was $329.99 and the Intel Core i3-5015U was $429.99.
To start with, the standout feature is the screen. It's a bright IPS 1080p display. It's better than displays found in much more expensive laptops. It's not as good as the retina macbook pro I have... but that costs ten times as much, and the gap between them is closer than it has any right to be. Meanwhile, the screen easily bests that of a 13" macbook air. In terms of other hardware:
Physical: The laptop is very similar to a 13" macbook air in size and weight. It's plastic, which is to be expected at the price point, but it's overall solid plastic with a non-slip texture to it. I like the build overall. The hinges worry me for long term, but they are also not the worst I've seen. Overall it's not bad considering that you're not paying for carved aluminum.
CPU: The Celeron (I have the CB35-C3300) is snappy. I mean, it's not a high end processor, but it's on the above average side of the line for this price range.
RAM: 4GB is enough for most things you'd do on a laptop this size, and is above par for the price point.
Sound: Very good for laptop speakers. It's not going to replace your stereo, but the sound is pretty good given the limitations of small speakers, and the volume is sufficient.
Keyboard: Feels good, almost like a macbook keyboard (a compliment) and it's backlit too (albiet I havn't gotten that working in linux yet)
Trackpad: My one complaint -- the track pad takes a while to break in.Read more ›

Please be aware that I am reviewing the Intel Core i3-5015U model which is not the same as the Intel Celeron 3215U. Amazon sometimes bundles reviews for what they believe are similar products into one pile of reviews, probably because they believe that 'more reviews' is better but, in my view, this can be confusing.
NOTE ON THE VIDEO:
It's probably not the best quality video ever but I am only trying to show how this Chromebook can stream and play videos from 3 different sources simultaneously: Netflix, Yahoo and a news channel without breaking a sweat. The clicks come from the wireless mouse. Also note how quickly it loads my Amazon page while three other videos are running. Quite impressive.
By the way, the Octane score for this Chromebook is 21,453 (average of 5 runs)
I am not in the habit of writing over-enthusiastic reviews and I totally believe that my mission as a Vine reviewer is to help my fellow customers (I don't like the term 'consumers') make better informed decisions by helping them cut through the fog of marketing and presenting a product's qualities and defects as they are. So, these being said, I was a little skeptical when I agreed to review Toshiba's latest Chromebook 2 because 'Chromebooks' to me translate into 'about $200' when it comes to price and this one sells for twice as much but, here I am, absolutely wow'ed if that's a word, by what seems to be one of the most amazing Chromebooks ever or at least the best I've had the opportunity to try so far. But, let me explain why I believe that this Chromebook is worth its high price.Read more ›
I’m going to start with the processor. My Toshiba Chromebook 2 is sporting the speedy Intel Celeron 3215U 1.7 GHz processor and this to me is the biggest improvement over the 2014 model. This things flies now. No longer does it stutter when multitasking (Spotify, casting a tab to my Chromecast & browsing The Verge). It may be just a plain Celeron to some but this not a processor you simply dismiss as mediocre. It gets the job done and does it well.
The keyboard is the next noticeable improvement. The travel on the keys is awesome and when compared to the crappy keyboard on my Lenovo U530 the typing experience on the Toshiba is heavenly. The specs boast of a backlit keyboard and technically it meets the minimum qualification but it is incredibly dim and a negligible upgrade to say the least. The trackpad works as expected. I’m not much of a trackpad user so any of its shortcomings do not affect me.
Overall this Chromebook is worth every penny. The 1080p IPS screen, Broadwell processor and keyboard totally make this a viable contender as the top Chromebook of 2015. If you are on the fence about this laptop don’t be. Feel free to make the jump and I can almost guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
