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

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.
