77% Dell Chromebook 11 3181 (Celeron N3060) Laptop Review

Low Quality. Dell's standard Chromebook 11 leaves quite a bit to be desired. A low quality display and cheap construction drag down the device. Additionally, the limits of Chrome OS and bugs with Android app compatibility leave a bad taste.

Ruggedized for Tough Work. With these words, Fujitsu advertises the industry tablet Stylistic V535. The 8.3-inch tablet comes with many communication features, large memory capacity, and a 64-bit CPU. The specification appears excellent. However, the reality is different: Passive cooling thwarts any plans.

Meaningless. 299 Euros (~$333) have to be put on the counter for the B50-10. This delivers a Bay Trail laptop with Windows 10. However, it is not a portable typewriter. Lenovo cut back on the battery (24 Wh), and the laptop can consequently only serve with limited stamina.
