Dell and Google announced earlier this week the imminent launch of a new premium professional Chromebook. The 13.3-inch Dell Chromebook 13 "combines sleek design, superb performance and Chrome OS to deliver an ultimate business-ready solution" and promises up to 12 hours of battery life, all for a price as low as $399 USD.

The highlights of the Dell Chromebook 13 include a 5th generation Intel Celeron, Core i3, or Core i5 processor, Full HD IPS touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, stereo speakers and dual array microphones, as well as a 720p webcam. This Chromebook packs an aluminum base, magnesium alloy palm rest, as well as a carbon fiber weave cover. Its security-oriented features include the Dell SonicWALL Mobile Connect (VPN) app, as well as Dell Secure Mobile Access.

As mentioned earlier, the cheapest configuration will start at just $399 USD. The Chromebook 13 is scheduled to hit the US and Canada on September 17. Customers will be able to customize their Dell Chromebook 13 or choose one of the existing hardware and software setups on Dell's online store. We will get back to the Dell Chromebook 13 next month, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
