Reviews for the Dell Chromebook 11

Dell Chromebook 11
Source: Comp Reviews English
Dell's Chromebook 11 shows its purpose in its design by being a bit heavier and sturdier than many on the market because it is intended for use in schools. For the most part, this helps the system as it is more resistant to constant use. The better battery life is certainly appreciated but it does have a little bit of a drawback because the screen is much more reflective than most Chromebooks.

90% Dell Chromebook 11 review: Too good to be left to the kids
Source: Zdnet.com English
Dell's Chromebook 11 offers sturdy but stylish design, reasonable performance and good battery life. Screen quality is the only significant drawback, unless you must have an Ethernet port. If you're comfortable living entirely online in the browser, it's an excellent option — especially at $179 or £199 (ex. VAT). If you're looking for more in the way of traditional desktop processing power (for photo editing and other demanding workloads for example), you'll need a notebook running Windows or Mac OS X. But even these users could consider a Chromebook as a lightweight secondary device at this price.

Now that the HP Chromebook 11 is back on sale, however, it’s that model that remains our favourite Chromebook. Although it can’t compete with this Dell on performance or battery life, its display is vastly superior, and that makes a real difference. Despite being a product for students, this, and other Chromebooks, remain excellent productivity machines and are well worth a close look.

Dell Chromebook 11 Review: Is It $100 Better than Acer C720?
Source: Notebooks.com English
If someone can get their hands on the Dell Chromebook 11, they should test it out before buying a Chromebook. Parents and schools should buy. All others should consider the Acer for the lowest price or the HP Chromebook 11 or Samsung Chromebook 2 for a better screen.

The Dell Chromebook 11 is a good addition to the Chromebook range. Its solid performance, combined with the ever-improving Chrome OS and sturdy build quality, make it a good buy. However, if you're after an 11in Chromebook, you're better off with the cheaper Acer C720 Chromebook, or you could get the 13in Toshiba Chromebook CB30-102 for around £35 more. Also, Intel Core i3-based Chromebooks will soon be available, which are likely to be significantly faster. You may, therefore, wish to wait before you buy a Chromebook.

With its strong performance, creditable ergonomics and low price, the Dell Chromebook 11 is a great option for any student looking for a budget workhorse – especially since, with the integration of the Quickoffice beta into the Chrome OS Files app, offline editing capabilities are now much stronger than before. At this cheaper end of the Chromebook market, we prefer it to the Acer C720. Now that the HP Chromebook 11 is back on sale, though, it’s that model that remains as our favourite Chromebook. Although it can’t compete with this Dell on performance or battery life, its display is vastly superior, and that makes a real difference.

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. In some areas it suffers, such as the glossy and reflective screen, bad speakers and flimsy keys. For the most part though, it’s simply another option for the Chromebook buyer to consider when looking for just the right device for school or personal use. At $299 it isn’t the most inexpensive option, but for users who really want that extra memory boost, Dell’s offering could be just what they need to improve upon the otherwise lackluster Chrome experience.

90% Dell Chromebook 11 review Dell's first Chromebook is a star in almost every regard
Source: Techradar English
The Dell Chromebook 11 is an affordable machine that does not feel or look like it was made on a budget. Compared to its competitors, this Dell falls in line with the specs already set by other Chrome laptops on the market. At the same time, it also has two USB 3.0 ports, matching the same record the Toshiba Chromebook set recently in our review. What sets it apart, though, is its impressive longevity, which makes it perfect for anyone who wants to get away from the outlet with a mobile hotspot in tow.

50% Dell Chromebook 11 review: Basic browser machine keeps up with the times, barely
Source: PC World English
The overall construction feels solid. The dark-gray plastic chassis should hide smudges and light dings. I'm amused by the name Dell gave this color, though: “Foggy Night?” Given the educational bent, why not "Scarred Blacktop" or "Old Sneaker Sole?" Ah, the missed opportunities. Dell’s Chromebook 11 is a good execution of an inherently limited kind of product. I’d love to see Dell keep at this and take a run at HP’s Chromebook 14. Why should HP have all the fun?

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 same price, the HP Chromebook 11 (Verizon LTE) $299.00 at Best Buy, our Editors' Choice, gives users most of the same features as the Dell Chromebook 11, plus a brilliant IPS screen and 4G LTE WWAN (though you have to buy a contract with Verizon), so you're never away from the Internet, even if you're in the middle of a park lawn.

A comfortable and sturdy design, great speakers and zippy Haswell performance make the Dell Chromebook 11 a compelling laptop for students. The solid keyboard also makes this device a great option for typing notes and reports. The only drawback that keeps this system from earning an Editors' Choice award is the glare-prone display.
