"So which is the best? It's clearly the Toshiba Chromebook 2. For its specs, overall build and features, you can't do better. At $330, it's quite affordable -- and the 13.3-inch 1080p IPS screen is a beautiful display that you'd expect from a much more expensive machine. (Note: There are two versions of the Toshiba Chromebook 2, a $249 version with a 1366 x 768 screen, and the 1920 x 1080-pixel 1080p version for $330. The more expensive one is the one to buy.) Not only are the colors bright and bold, but it has a wide viewing angle. This is a Chromebook that you can truly use for watching videos as well as for work.
It's also got great Skullcandy speakers that you certainly don't expect on a Chromebook, and certainly not one in the low $300 range. So it's great for listening to music as well as watching videos.
Unlike many other Chrombooks, it comes with a full 4GB of RAM, which is important because its processor, like many Chromebook processors, won't knock your socks off. But the 4 GB of RAM gives the machine enough oomph to make up for that."
