How good a choice the Dell Chromebook 3189 2-in-1 Education is comes down to what your needs are.

And if you’re a technology admin/coordinator for a school or district, its sturdiness and its education-friendly features would make it a good choice for a system to hand out to students for in-class or roving use alike.

Comment

Model:

The Dell Chromebook 11-3189 is designed and marketed for use in K-12 education environments. It has support for Google for Education administration and features which include a variety of tools that teachers and school/district technology administrators can use to more effectively interact with students, monitor system use, and track learner progress. Google Classroom offers several tools that teachers and learners can use to communicate and work with each other. This Chromebook has been ruggedized to survive typical use by a grade-schooler in whichever of its modes it is bent into. Even if students never stow them in their bags and are just issued these Chromebooks for classroom use, these machines can handle the inevitable classroom drops, bumps, and rough housing, being tested to MIL-STD 810G standards for factors such as shock and vibration resistance. All of the edges, including the rim around the display's perimeter, are covered by a rubber bumper that helps protect the Chromebook 3189 2-in-1 from accidental damage from bumps and minor drops. Its hinge allows to swing the display all the way back, allowing to use the system in laptop, tablet, tent, or stand mode. Under the hood, the Dell Chromebook 11-3189 comes equipped with a very modest 1.6GHz Intel Celeron N3060 dual-core processor with 4GB of memory, plus an 11.6-inch IPS touchscreen with a native resolution of 1,366x768. Local storage is supplied by a 32GB eMMC drive. The local storage is hardly enough. However, Google’s G Suite for Education offers tonnes of cloud-storage space at no additional cost.

As far as 11-inch-class Chromebooks go, the Dell Chromebook 3189 is a bit bulkier and heavier than expected. It measures 0.82 inches thick, with a footprint of 12x8.2 inches, and weighs 3.2 pounds. The good news is that with that extra weight comes some extra rigidity and protection. The outside of the top lid sports a shiny, scratch-resistant covering. The top corners are adorned with a Chrome logo on the left and a small LED stripe at right. The latter is the Dell Activity Light, an alert that students can trigger on the screen to let their teachers know when they’re ready, have questions or need attention. Opposite the display is a full-size keyboard with Chiclet-style keys, with a wide touchpad below it, mounted in the centre. Both the keys and the touchpad are sealed off internally from spills, further helping to protect the system. For connectivity, it has two first-generation USB 3.1 ports with Type-A connectors, a full-size HDMI port, a MicroSD memory-card reader, a combination headset/microphone jack and the port for the 65-watt power adapter. For wireless connectivity, the Chromebook 3189 offers 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 support. The Chromebook 11 is probably the perfect laptop for schools and younger students. It offers all the basic features for a very reasonable price.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
