A photo from Toshiba's booth at CES 2014 indicates that the Japanese PC maker will indeed reveal its new Chromebook at the show.
9to5Google published a photo on Monday from Toshiba's booth with the words "Chromebook for Everyday." No laptops were yet placed on the stand, though.
A Chromebook from Toshiba is no surprise. Toshiba had committed to ship a Chromebook last September. And product details leaked in December with a prematurely posted review showed a model that would cost $279, and ship with a 1.4GHz Intel Haswell processor, 13.3-inch 1366x768-pixel screen, 2GB of RAM, and a 16GB SSD.
PC makers, stung by sharp declines in the market as consumers spend money on tablets and smartphones instead, are looking for alternatives to boost sales. Computers using Google's Chrome OS, which provides a cheap, browser-based operating system useful for many tasks, is one such alternative.
9to5Google also said Toshiba has a 4K TV at the show, a model whose diagonal is about 30 inches.
