Dell has always been keen on Chrome OS and Chromebooks. Last week, they finally came out with a device of their own. Well, two of them actually. Both aimed at the education sector, costing less than $300.
The Dell Chromebook 11 was designed with schools in mind. The battery lasts up to 10 hours — enough for a full school day plus homework — and boots up in 8.4 seconds. It is light and highly portable, making it ideal for student use at home or on the go. And like all Chromebooks, it includes the cutting edge in security features, keeping schools protected from online threats. The device will be available in two versions – 4GB in January 2014 and 2GB in Q1 2014 – both for under $300.
The price is attractive. A 1.4 GHz processor, the usual 16GB SSD, 100 GB Google Drive for two years, is not a bad deal at all. But I will get save my excitement for now and wait for Toshiba to announce their Chromebook’s details, and then decide whom to clap for.
What do you say?
