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.

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.

Conclusion With its durable build, spill-resistant keyboard, and impressive battery life, the Dell Chromebook 11 Non-Touch is ideal for any grade-school classroom or for use as an affordable, everyday laptop. It has more than enough chops for...

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 (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...

A rugged Dell Chromebook for students


Dell adds new Chromebooks, laptops and tablets to its education line.

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.

Dell Chromebook 11


While aimed at schools, the Dell Chromebook 11 can act as your primary online laptop at home as well.

Affordable. Haswell-based processor helps lengthen battery life. Desktop-class browser. Sturdy construction. 4GB of memory.

No 4G/WWAN option. Narrower screen angle than an In-Plane Switching (IPS) display. Laptop-style charger.

The Dell Chromebook 11 is a very good alternative to a Windows 8 PC, particularly if most of your needs can be satisfied online or with Chrome OS offline programs. It's a good effort, but not quite the best for end users in this price range. For the...

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 3181 (Celeron N3060) Laptop Review


Low Quality. Dell's standard Chromebook 11 leaves quite a bit to be desired. A low quality display and cheap construction drag down the device. Additionally, the limits of Chrome OS and bugs with Android app compatibility leave a bad taste.

compact size ; good keyboard ; adequate browsing performance ; most Android apps are compatible...

...but there are still some bugs ; cheap build materials ; poor color accuracy ; poor viewing angles ; low-quality speakers ; no upgradebility/repair options

Dell's Chromebook 11 3181 is a story of too little, too late. The device feels about two years old, despite its relatively recent launch. This is augmented by the device's lackluster performance, poor build quality, and awful screen. There's little...
