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 Touch

 

The affordable Dell Chromebook 11 Touch has a touch screen and a beefy, rugged design making it a good choice for classrooms.

Rugged, kid-proof chassis. Spill-resistant keyboard. 180-degree hinge. Touch screen. Fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Low-resolution display with narrow viewing angles. Accuracy issues with touchpad in testing.

Conclusion The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is a decent Chrome OS laptop for education, with a rugged design that should survive whatever stresses are inflicted upon it in the classroom. The addition of a touch screen makes it a bit more compelling than...

Dell Chromebook 11 Touch review

 

The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch is more rugged and less expensive than before, but it sacrifices some performance that made the old Dell Chromebook 11 great.

The Dell Chromebook 11 Touch Review

 

In my view, Chromebooks have gone hand in hand with tablets in eating away the part of the market that was once filled with low quality and low cost netbooks. I think that both tablets and Chromebooks offer a consumer a much better experience than...

In closing, I'll say that users who need a laptop with the durability of the Dell Chromebook 11 probably won't be considering other Chromebooks in the first place. I highly recommend opting for the non-touch model, as the touchscreen is not very useful...

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 too 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.

Conclusion The Dell Chromebook 11 (Intel Core i3) is definitely a step up from the previous Dell Chromebook 11, thanks to the switch to an Intel Core i3 processor, but the improved performance is comes with an uptick in cost. In a category where...

Dell Chromebook 11 Review

 

Designed for education, Dell's Chromebook 11 has 4 GB RAM and great portability. But does it live up to standards set by other Chromebooks? Find out here.

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.

Dell Chromebook 11 review

 

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.
