Dell getting in on the Chromebook frenzy

wpid-dell-chromebook-11-1.jpegLooks like Dell is planning to release a Chrome OS devices. We have hard this before as they had considered it back in 2009, but then nothing came of it. Dell has now announced the Chromebook 11 and it is looking like a great option for those looking to get a Chromebook soon. The Dell Chromebook 11 has fairly typical specifications and comes with a large focus on education.

Dell Chromebook 11 specifications

  • 11.6-inch 1366x768p display
  • Intel Celeron 2955U processor
  • 16 GB Solid State drive
  • 4 or 2 GB of DDR3 RAM (depending on the model)
  • 720p webcam
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port
  • 10 hours of battery life

Dell’s Chrome OS computer comes with some powerful specs, so it will definitely be one of the top options in your lists. The promise of 10-hour battery life is certainly exciting, and paired with those specs this computer should run very smoothly!

Price and Availability

The laptop will be released in Q1, 2014 Stateside. Dell state it will cost you “under $300″. Which probably means it will cost $299 or so, for the higher-end model. Whether that is dollar for pound is anyone’s guess at the moment! My guess is probably.

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Review

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012The Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 or ‘New Mini 10’ as it’s also known on the Dell website is another Atom based netbook, and as the name suggests it has a 10 inch screen (10.1 actually) – the difference here is that it’s a higher resolution than the standard 1024×600 we’re used to seeing.

The Mini 1012 is running a fairly standard 32bit Windows 7 Starter for Small Notebook PCs on a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Single Core CPU, paired with 1GB of RAM and an Intel 3150 Graphics Media Accelerator.

This particular unit has the 6-cell battery giving a claimed 9.5 hours of battery life – and the case is styled to keep this larger battery nice and sleek – no ‘lumpy’ batteries here.

So let’s take it for a spin.
