Toshiba announces budget Windows tablet and new Chromebooks

Toshiba also announced the second iteration of its Chromebook. Known as the Chromebook 2, the laptop trims the fat from the previous model and features a “sleek new design that houses a 13-inch display in a compact 12-inch chassis”.

The Chromebook 2 will be available in two models; the standard will make use of a 1366 x 768 pixel screen and pack 2GB of RAM, while the premium will rock a 1080p high definition display and 4GB of RAM. The pair will both use an Intel Celeron processor, feature HDMI output, a SD card reader, a USB 3.0 port and USB 2.0 port.

Both models will be available from October 5 in the United States. The lower end model will retail for USD$249.99 and the premium for USD$329.99. Toshiba Australia have confirmed that lower end model will be available in Australia from October for AUD$449.00
