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

Dell Chromebook 11 review


Aimed at students and school children, the latest version of Dell's popular Chromebook 11 features rubber edges, a spill-proof keyboard and trackpad, plus plenty of power. We take a look.

Dell knows what it’s doing when it comes to Chromebooks. This new, rugged model has plenty to offer in terms of speed and durability, but you don’t feel like you’re sacrificing much in return. With the long battery life and unique waterproofing feature...

Dell Chromebook 11 review


It might be Dell's first attempt at a Chromebook, but the Chromebook 11 ticks all our boxes as a fast, cheap and reliable laptop.

Dell’s debut offering is pretty much exactly what most people want from a Chromebook. It’s fast, easily portable, smart looking, features a great keyboard, and even manages to add in a few bells and whistles like the two USB 3.0 ports. If Google’s...

Dell Chromebook 11 hands-on


We test drive Dell's Chrome OS notebook

The Chromebook 11 has 16GB of SSD internal storage, which helps it boot up in what Dell claims 8.4 seconds. In our tests, the Chromebook took just under 10 seconds to power on. Not quite as fast as Dell claims but still quick enough by far to ensure...
