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.

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!

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.

Well made and quick in operation, the Chromebook 11 is let down only by a poor display.

We test drive Dell's Chrome OS notebook

The Chromebook 11 also boasts two USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and an HDMI port. Dell claims that it has a 10-hour battery life, though again this is something we'll have to test when we get the Chromebook in for review.
