Check out the rest of its features, specifications, price, and where to buy one.
Toshiba Chromebook CB32-A3120 Specifications
The Toshiba Chromebook CB35-A3120 is the company’s first Chromebook, but they are not the first one to release it on the market. The Toshiba CB35 Chromebook runs on Chrome OS, and is powered by a 4th generation Intel Celeron 2955U processor, an ultra-low voltage dual-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz and is based on the latest Haswell architecture.
You don’t really need a powerful processor to run Chrome OS and its applications, plus a ULV CPU like this helps extends the battery life, as well as helps in lowering the overall cost. The processor is paired with a 2GB of DDR3L-1600 RAM and a 16GB SSD for storage. You also get 100GB of free Google Drive cloud storage for two years. It has a 13.3-inch display with HD resolution at 1366×768.
The Toshiba Chromebook also features a WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity. It also has two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output port, an audio port, a memory card reader, a 720p webcam, and has a built-in stereo speaker. It is powered by a 4-cell Lithium-Ion battery that can last up to 9 hours of run time.

Chromebooks like this are cheaper alternatives compared to full pledge laptops and notebooks. They are just an alternative and not a replacement. You should get a Chromebook if you use it primarily for web surfing, if you are comfortable using Google Docs (and other web-based apps) and cloud storage, for your multimedia and streaming needs and if you have a very limited budget.
