Toshiba has finally joined the ranks of laptop manufacturers with a Chromebook. Others have stood out with rock-bottom prices or high-res displays, but Toshiba opted for sheer size: Its Chromebook's screen measures an impressive 13.3 inches.

Although that's not the biggest Chromebook on record (the HP Chromebook 14 is one inch larger), it's still pretty hefty for connectivity-dependent laptops, with the idea that the extra area will encourage using the machine to stream video. There's even a full-size HDMI port for relaying videos to an external TV or monitor. It also has a pair of USB ports and SD card slot.

The non-touch display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768, which tells you Toshiba isn't trying to compete with retina level laptops, and it keeps the most important spec the price down to an attractive $279. That's the same as the HP Chromebook 11, which sports just an 11.6-inch screen.
