The new Toshiba Chromebook is now available to buy in the UK and North America – ahead of its original street date.
A number of stores in the US have the device in stock, including national retailer Micro Center and online giant Amazon US, for one cent shy of $280 – a saving of $19 on Toshiba’s RRP.
At this discounted price the Toshiba is a compelling purchase. For comparison, the HP Chromebook 11, which is less powerful, has a shorter battery life (6 hours vs. 9 hours) and a smaller (if better) screen, is currently listed at $279 on Amazon.
It’s not just North America that’s being graced with the Celeron-powered notebook. Pre-orders have also gone live in the United Kingdom.
The ‘sunray silver‘ coloured notebook can be pre-ordered on Amazon UK for £249 with free P&P with an ‘expected’ release date of February 10.
Toshiba is also selling the device direct on their website and over the phone.
