Earlier this week, I obtained an Acer Chromebook 11 and ran it through some benchmarks. Unfortunately, in my first day with the Acer I never played audio over the speakers; when I did, I noticed the speakers crackled – a lot. So, I returned the Acer and picked up a Toshiba Chromebook 2. Now that I have the Chromebook 2 setup, I decided to benchmark it to generate some Toshiba Chromebook 2 benchmarks and compare its performance to other Chromebooks.
How does this new Toshiba Chromebook perform? In one word – ok.
To benchmark the Chromebook I decided to rely on two tried and true web-based benchmarks:
Toshiba Chromebook 2 Benchmarks – the results
The Toshiba Chromebook 2 seems to have mid-range results overall. Scoring a 495 in Sunspider and a 8115 in Octane 2.0.
Other thoughts and impressions
- The screen is much, much, much better
- The screen hinge is much worse – the screen will only open so far which is annoying at times
- The system seems much more jittery than other Chromebooks; I suspect it’s the power to screen size ratio
- The “Skullcandy” logo is damn annoying and I wish they’d make silly stuff like that a sticker
- The computer seems more solidly built than the Chromebook 11
