Toshiba Chromebook 2
As the name might suggest, the original Chromebook 2 was Toshiba's second attempt at entering the Chromebook market. Originally released in 2014, the Toshiba Chromebook 2 was an instant success as it was one of the first Chromebooks on the market with an IPS display. Despite reviews of less-than-spectacular build quality, the low price point along with a large IPS screen was the perfect combo for launching Toshiba into a competitive place in the Chromebook market.
Following on the success of the original Chromebook 2, Toshiba launched a new version of in 2015 and kept the Chromebook 2 name. The Chromebook 2 (2015 version) built on the original's success, keeping the same sized IPS display, updating the processor, and adding a backlit keyboard. The Toshiba Chromebook 2 (2015) also features an upgradeable m.2 SSD drive and the addition of a cooling fan to keep the updated processor cool.
