Dell Chromebook 11 (3120) Review

 

Enduring. Dell's small Chromebook attracts attention with its long battery life and decent input devices. The robust casing makes up for the odd shortcoming.

Matte screen, Low temperature development, Good battery life, Silent operation, Decent keyboard

1-year warranty only

The Chromebook 11-3120 combines the functionality of a portable typewriter and a browsing machine. The laptop has good input devices and can boast with a robust casing. This is essential since the laptop has been designed for use in schools. The very...

Dell Chromebook 11 Non-Touch

 

The Dell Chromebook 11 is an affordable 11-inch Chrome OS laptop that offers excellent battery life, good overall performance, and a durable construction.

Affordably priced. Durable construction. Excellent battery life

No touch screen. Narrow viewing angles on display

When we tested the Dell Chromebook 11 last year, we were impressed with its durable chassis, affordability, and long battery life. The latest Dell Chromebook 11 Non-Touch ($269 as tested) delivers more of the same offering 10 hours of battery life and...

Dell Chromebook 11 (Intel Core i3)

 

The Dell Chromebook 11 gets an Intel Core i3 processor for smoother performance and better multitasking, but it winds up being pricey for an otherwise basic Chromebook.

Sturdy construction. Healthy port selection. Excellent performance, thanks to Intel Core i3 processor. Solid nine hours of battery life

Mediocre display. Expensive

The Dell Chromebook 11 (Intel Core i3) ($379 as tested) is the latest in a string of new Chromebooks that push the envelope of what the inexpensive Chrome-OS-based laptops can be, remixing the basic Web-connected laptops with new features and unique...

Dell Chromebook 11 Review

 

The Dell Chromebook 11 is a good option for ChromeOS-using students who need to multitask, but suffers when used as a media device.

Good Multitasker ; Inexpensive ; ChromeOS

Awful speakers ; Flimsy keys ; Poor display

The Dell Chromebook 11 is a good, if a bit mixed, device. In some areas it excels with its additional 2 GB of RAM over most other models, the solid trackpad and two USB 3.0 ports instead of just the one USB port found on most Chromebooks.

Chromebooks are the simplest computers you can buy today, but they've proven a tricky formula for manufacturers to get right. The perfect Chromebook is cheap, fast enough, well-built, and lasts all...

Snappy performance ; Solid build quality ; All-day battery life

A little heavy ; Screen could be better ; Noisy fans

The Chromebook 11 is the first model that checks off all of the boxes

Dell needed a Chromebook for the education market, and this 11-inch model works fine. Now let's see something bigger for the rest of us!

Sturdy construction ; Keyboard and touchpad layout are good ; Good wired and wireless connectivity

Hard-plastic keys can feel harsh ; Power cord protrudes from the side ; Only two USB ports

Dell's Chromebook 11 breaks little new ground for the category, but it's a nice execution of a machine category that's inherently simple and limited.

Dell Chromebook 11 (2015) review

 

Meet the toughest Chromebook

Rugged, military tested design ; Loud speakers ; 180-degree barrel hinge

Touchscreen not standard ; Small keyboard ; Large footprint for screen size

Scores in depth Specifically built to withstand the abuses inherent to an education environment, this year's Dell Chromebook 11 features a solid build housed in a boring design. The Chromebook 11 ($249, £170, AU$320) looks more like a business laptop...

Dell Chromebook 11 review

 

Dell's first Chromebook is a star in almost every regard

Amazing battery life ; Suave, comfortable design ; No-fuss inputs

Bluish, low-contrast display ; Limited app selection

Scores in depth It's official: manufacturers are hot on Chromebooks. Recently, Toshiba came out swinging with it's first browser-powered machine, and now Dell has followed suit. While more laptops is always good news, Chromebooks have grown stagnant,...
