Toshiba only has one model of Chromebook (to date, as far as I know).
I've not used it heavily for a full day, but think it's likely to handle that OK.
Toshiba claims "up to 9 hours" battery life.
I haven't taken it apart, but it feels well built.
It has 2 GB of RAM, non-expandable. Its 16 GB of storage can be expanded via an SD card slot.
It has an Intel Celeron processor, which should make it a bit faster than many other Chromebooks.
I didn't notice until after I bought it, so it was not a factor in my decision -
until the recent recent extension of many models' "official" end-of-life, the Toshiba EOL date was most distant.
I hope these somewhat vague comments are of some use.

I would be looking for this info on your Toshiba
model (have they had more than one?)
actual batt life
build quality as compared to other Chromebooks you have seen


List

Its an interesting problem to have, to need to compare the wide array of models available today, it wasn't that long ago that you were lucky to find more than one model at any given seller.

That said, a Chromebook is a Chromebook is a Chromebook, outside of  price, which is likely a result of screen size and build quality.

I know of one 1-1 student who leaves her Chromebook ac adapter at home bc she brings it in charged and the device lasts all day.

Have also seen less damage to Chromebook ac's not sure if that is a result of them being physically smaller or less necessary (bc of better battery life of CBs compared to our other 1-1 devices)
