Reviews for the Dell Chromebook 13, Core i5-5300U

60% Dell Chromebook 13 review - a Chromebook Pixel rival?
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Dell Chromebook 13 is undoubtedly a premium Chromebook, but Chrome OS still doesn’t really justify the need for such wanton specifications. In all fairness, this is a complaint which can also be levelled at the Chromebook Pixel as well, but when Google's Chromebook offers so much more for less once you add in VAT, the top-end Chromebook 13 is difficult to recommend.

The Dell comes as close to the ideal Chromebook as anything I’ve tested. The catch is that you’ll pay for it. It’s probably best compared directly to the only Chromebook that’s more powerful and pricier—the Pixel. If you want a high-end Chromebook and don’t mind spending $900 for it, the Dell bests the Pixel in many ways, including battery life.

Unless you simply crave a touch screen, the $799 Dell Chromebook 13 is a formidable rival to the class-leading $999 Google Pixel, and maybe even the $1,299 Core i7 Pixel. One touch of its carbon-fiber lid and you'll be spoiled for ordinary Chromebook construction—even that of excellent contenders like the Toshiba Chromebook 2, which also has a 13.3-inch IPS 1,920x1,080 display and was just refreshed with a choice of Celeron or Core i3 power.
