Engadget Summary

Toshiba's latest Chromebook is a clear improvement over its predecessor, what with its bright 1080p screen, boomier audio and slightly lighter design than some of its competitors. You generally can't go wrong here, especially at this price, but there are just enough quirks that keep me from calling this best in class. Chief among them are the cheap build quality and relatively shallow keyboard, especially since, for $20 more, you can get Samsung's 13-inch Chromebook 2, which has a faux-leather lid and cushier keys to type on. Also, while the Toshiba Chromebook 2 has decent battery life compared to other Chrome OS devices, it falls short of other 1080p models specifically; the Acer Chromebook 13, for instance, outlasts it by a good two and a half hours. It seems, then, that none of these big-name options are perfect on their own, but Toshiba's offering is at least pretty good.
