Beefy Bay Trail Toshiba Chromebook on it’s way

imgresA new Bay Trail Toshiba Chromebook is on it’s way. Two separate models are being prepared for a launch this side of Christmas, each with varying screen resolutions and RAM configurations. The cheaper of the pair comes with 2GB RAM, a standard HD (1366×768) resolution and 11 hour battery life (better than the 10.5 we were expecting). Priced at $249.99 (US) makes this more than competitive with similarly spec’d Bay Trail devices.

The second has a more generous 4GB of RAM plus a full HD (1920×1080) resolution. The increase in pixels being pushed means an increase in the power required to do so. As such, this model packs in a shorter battery life of ‘just’ 9 hours. MSRP for this model is $329.99 (US). The release date being touted by Toshiba is November. It’s is expected they shall begin shipping sooner, hopefully.
