A spree of Chromebook releases seems to follow Google’s announcement that new models will be able to run Android apps. First there was Lenovo, then Acer and now Dell. Dell unveiled a bunch of educational laptops, but also some Windows models with pens in the mix.
Dell’s Chromebook 11 (3180) is among the newcomers, plus the Chromebook 13 (3380) and Chromebook 11 Convertible (3189). They will all go on sale on February 7th, priced at reasonable rates, from $219 to $349. Chromebook 11 Convertible stands out of the crowd, with its 360 degree flexibility, making it available in clamshell, tablet and tent usage modes.
There should be sixth gen Intel Celeron processors and a scratch resistant touchscreen, plus a spill proof touchpad and keyboard. The other new Chromebooks have the battery as a selling point, supposed to offer you a full day of usage. They’re also durable and rugged, by the way. Dell also unveiled some Windows 10 machines, like the Latitude 11 Convertible (3189), priced at $579.
It packs a seventh gen Intel Celeron and Pentium CPU, Dell Productivity Active Pen and a “world facing” camera for the 11 inch tablet mode. Then there’s the Dell Latitude 11 and Latitude 13 with Windows 10, that bump up the specs and the prices to $349 and $519. These also come in February.
