Review Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 Notebook

17 March 2014
  • Summary: For grandpa. Not interested in Windows? Chrome OS is the alternative offered on this laptop. No complicated hardware settings; just open it up and start surfing. Does Toshiba do a good job with this non-Windows concept?
  • Pros: Very light, Excellent battery life, Good application performance, Very inexpensive, Ideal for beginning computer users, Chrome OS has matured. Surfing, handling files and Google Drive, multimedia -- everything works right from the start.
  • Cons: Cheap construction, TN display with weak viewing angles, Below-average keyboard, High-pitched, clanging speakers, Low webcam quality, If it is a surfing machine, why not equip it with decent input devices? More feedback would have done the keys a world of good.

Toshiba CB30-102

12 March 2014
  • Summary: The usual caveat of ‘Chromebooks aren't for everyone' of course applies, but the Toshiba CB30 is a very useable and capable laptop for anyone who spends the majority of their computing time online using Google services. The increased screen size is a definite bonus over 11.6in models, even if it isn't a high-quality display, while the plastic construction keeps the weight to a portable 1.5 kg. For £250 this is a great device if your creative and privacy needs are modest.

Toshiba's CB30-102 13.3in Chromebook – imagine a tablet with a keyboard

2 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Review The typical low price of a Chromebook suggests you’ll not be buying into a quality product with pleasing design aesthetics. Yet it seems that the brains behind Toshiba’s latest Chromebook weren’t going to be swayed by such presumptions.

Toshiba CB30-102 Chromebook review

23 May 2014
  • Conclusion: As Chromebooks go the Toshiba CB30-102 is one of the more luxurious with its 13-inch screen and relatively fast processor. It suffers from the usual Chromebook issues -- really needs an internet connection to be at its best, limited in its array of apps -- but it's a very good, and well-priced, example of the genre.
  • Pros: Solidly built, decent screen, good battery life, low price
  • Cons: Less than full-HD screen, a bit on the bulky side

Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 review

17 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The CB30-102 Chromebook is Toshiba’s first laptop designed to run Google’s web-centred Chrome operating system. The Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 isn’t particularly exciting to behold, but it has a specification that matches rival Chromebooks from Acer and HP. The CB30-102’s 13.3in screen makes it larger than many other Chromebooks. Even so, the CB30-102 weighs only 1.5kg and is 20mm thick. You’ll certainly have no trouble carrying it around.

Toshiba's CB30 is one of the best Chromebooks we've seen so far, but its screen isn't great

Good Gear Guide.au
21 February 2014
  • Summary: Toshiba's Chromebook CB30 possesses good styling and a useful array of features. At 13.3 inches, it's also a comfortable Chromebook to use. Importantly, it performs swiftly and can do a good job when streaming Web video. However, it has a screen that is very glossy and not as crisp and colourful as we would like. It's the only thing holding it back. Even so, it's still a Chromebook that's well worth considering.
  • Pros: Good styling, Comfortable to use, Full-sized HDMI port and SD card slot
  • Cons: Screen is very glossy, Screen definition and contrast could be better

Toshiba Satellite CB30-102 Chromebook

18 November 2014
  • Summary: Plastfaktoren er høy og skjermen er ikke noe å skryte av. Likevel har vi sansen for hvor lett og portabel maskinen er, og prisen tatt i betraktning synes vi både tastaturet og pekeplaten er et funn. Selv om batteritestene i skrivende stund ikke er ferdige, har vi i testperioden fått følelsen av at batteritiden er god. Støy og varme finnes det dessuten ikke spor av.
  • Pros: Tastatur, Nøyaktig pekeplate, God lyd, Stillegående, Chrome OS flyter godt og er brukervennlig, Rimelig, En hel dag på batteridrift
  • Cons: Plast, plast, plast, Elendig skjerm, Chrome OS har svært begrenset funksjonalitet, Lite lokal lagring, Bare to gigabyte minne

Chromebook – det lette alternativ

26 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Men hvad er en Chromebook så for en størrelse? Begrebet dækker bærbare computere, som kører på det browserbaserede styresystem Chrome OS, der er udviklet af Google (som også står bag netbrowseren Chrome). Styresystemet kan anvendes af pc-producenter i deres egen hardware, og allerede i dag har en række af de førende brands en eller flere Chromebooks i sortimentet.

Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 - Eerste 13-inch Chromebook

12 August 2014
  • Summary: Toshiba is de eerste fabrikant met een Chromebook met een 13,3inch-scherm. Dit formaat biedt een prettige balans biedt tussen een scherm dat groot genoeg is en draagbaarheid. Ook Samsung komt binnenkort met een 13,3inch-Chromebook, waarvan het scherm een hogere resolutie zal hebben. Toshiba's Chromebook heeft duidelijke nadelen. Zo is het scherm erg middelmatig, daarnaast is de fraai ogende behuizing van net iets te goedkoop plastic gemaakt.
