Toshiba just announced the first Chromebook with a 13.3-inch display during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Toshiba’s device will hit the market in February at an affordable price point. Let’s take a look at what kind of specs it offers.

First, the Toshiba Chromebook is powered by Intel’s new Haswell processors, which promise super fast boot times and up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. Additionally, the Toshiba Chromebook offers a 13.3-inch TruBrite HD display with a 1366 x 768-pixel resolution, a full-sized keyboard that’s optimized for Chrome OS and more. It weighs just 3.3 pounds and measures just 0.8-inches thick, and includes 2GB of RAM and a 16GB solid-state drive in addition to 100GB of Google Drive storage. Other features include two USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI-out port, Bluetooth 4.0 and  802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.

The Toshiba Chromebook will launch Feb. 16 for $279.99 and will be available direct from Toshiba as well as from “major retailers.”
