Low prices generally don’t equate to great build quality or design, though, something Toshiba aims to improve on with its second go-round, the aptly named Chromebook 2. Toshiba’s first Chromebook didn’t look bad, but because it had a 13.3-inch screen, it was bulkier than the 11.6-inch models it was competing against. For the 2, Toshiba shaved off as much as possible so it is closer in size to those smaller-screen Chromebooks while keeping the 13.3-inch screen. Toshiba’s Chromebook 2 sheds some bulk from the original (bottom).

You’ll also find stereo speakers tuned by headphone maker Skullcandy that fire up through the keyboard, an HD webcam with a dual-mic array, one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port, a full-size HDMI output, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an SD card slot.
